in Johannesburg


The dream of Memoire started in 2007 by 3 crazies daring to go on an adventure of starting a wedding venue out of nothing, and finally in 2009 we hosted our first wedding!

A few floods, fights and fires later they are proud to have had over 700+ successful weddings and have created a luxury-wedding venue that has become a household name within the South African industry.

Memoire prides itself on creating an atmosphere where every moment is a memory.


Situated in the beautiful country side of South Africa, Johannesburg, Memoire offers beautiful views, and amazing diverse photographic opportunities, from an intimate garden wedding, to a luxurious black tie event. Only 18km from Lanseria International airport, they are the perfect location for your guests to quickly  head to their hotels and enjoy the beautiful scenery on their way to Memoire.


Memoire boast with 14 en-suite guest rooms and two executive suites. Each guest room is equipped with an en-suite bathroom with a shower and a small patio area overlooking our beautiful gardens for your morning coffee. Each room has an extra King size bed which can also be converted into 2 single beds. You can enjoy the luxurious feel of 300 thread-count percale linen on every bed. For your comfort, each room is fitted with a Ceiling fan for the summer and panel heaters for the winter. As all the rooms open onto the “fountain of hope” area, it is ideal for close family and friends. Ornate Mirrors and granite tops ensure the feeling of style, opulence and class.


Memoire is one of my favorite venues to photograph in, mainly for its diversity and beauty; The venue boasts wonderful and scenic photographic opportunities, from Garden, to Forest, to an abundance of greenery and elegance.  The possibilities are endless! The bridal suite has beautiful natural light coming into the room, which makes for amazing bridal portraits, its iconic mirror collage on the wall is undoubtedly very recognizable. The groom suit offers a more masculine approach with less light, but offers a more moody approach, which gives a nice cigar lounge feel.
