Located on a family farm along the Natal South Coast, the Fontana family recently transformed their farm tractor barn into a rustic, yet elegant wedding venue. Sliding wooden barn doors, together with cement bag-washed walls and a high ceiling, emits the rustic character that will form a lasting impression. Whether a small or a large function, “THE VENUE” can hold up to 200 seated guests with ample dance floor space. The farm offers an infinity of priceless photo settings near the natural dams, alongside the Umkomaas river bank, in the forest or simply on the hills overlooking the Indian Ocean. The emphasis is on creating a personalised and memorable setting for your wedding or any other chosen function. Whether you require assistance in planning your event from start to finish, or are simply looking for exclusive, professional on–the-day co-ordination, Mara Fontana is able to assist in creating, planning and executing your vision with unique décor ideas and personalised special touches within your given budget.  Let the simple beauty and warm climate of the Natal South Coast, coupled with a rustic farm setting, set the tone for your special function, be it a wedding, a special birthday celebration an over-the-top ‘pop-up’ restaurant or a more formal corporate function.
