Today we would like to introduce to you one of our favorite venues in Jo-burg, Morrells. This upmarket boutique venue has everything going for them, from amazing cuisine to top management. Working at Morrells is like going out to see friends.

{1} How would you describe the typical bride / client getting married at your venue?

Morrells has such a variety of brides who come to us for their wedding – chic clean-line bride, to the vintage romantic bride. The main thing about the Morrells bride is that they know what they are looking for and have high standards and expectations. Our clients are unique, just like the venue is unique. The brides want to take their guests on this journey of commitment, love, friendship and family and have them walk away with an experience and memories that will last for a lifetime.

{2} What sets your venue apart from others?

We do not conform to the norm of Johannesburg-styled weddings. There are no round tables or draping or chair covers at Morrells; all the little touches we have like this are to ensure that it’s not only unique but also comfortable and easy for the guests. We offer vintage charm from a bygone era but still have all the comforts and luxurious touches the guests would expect.

{3} Single most important thing that is unique about your venue?

The personalised service from start to finish.

{4} Most fun moment that happened at your venue at a wedding?

When one of the father daughter dances where done on the steps of La Chambre last November, the bride was behind one door and the father behind the other. They swung the doors open and the dad was dressed as Daddy Cool and they did this amazing dance to the Daddy Cool song… it was memorable to say the least!

{5} Which movie star do you think describes your venue best and why?

Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor; all three ladies exude classic beauty and the elegance of the bygone era. They also had the look and charm to bring a crowd to their feet!

{6} Food trends for weddings?

Food trends are leaning towards comfort with a splash of rustic. On our winter menu, we have dishes like a rich French onion soup topped with a traditional baguette and gruyere cheese. We love this dish because as its baked the soup bubbles over the top and just looks so delicious… it’s definitely something you want to enjoy in our Bistro area with the fire place blazing! As the soup is so intense in flavour, most people would pair it with a strong red but we like to be different and go with a chardonnay. We particularly like the Glenwood Unwooded from Franshhoek – France and little bit of South Africa as well.

{7} Any tips/ advice you can give a couple who is choosing a wedding venue?

Do not do a buffet, it’s overrated and most of the time under delivers! Think about your favorite dishes as a couple, but also keep your guests, the time of the year and the style of your wedding in mind.
