Welcome to Beyond the Moon Wedding Venue and Guest Farm
Beyond the Moon is situated in the foothills of the Outeniqua mountains, in Hoekwil along the Garden Route. The Forest Venue is the perfect choice for a wedding surrounded by the natural beauty of the Garden Route, and is famous for forest weddings and rustic, chic and barn-style wedding receptions.
The guest farm accommodation provides nine self-catering cottages, which is the ideal escape for anyone who is wanting to escape the bustling city life to all the way Beyond the Moon.
Share the serenity of this tranquil, 24-hectare piece of heaven nestling in the foothills of the neatly-brushed, lush green Outeniqua Mountains, just 15 minutes from the beaches of Wilderness. This is a precious little place of sanctuary that is something quite unique. Almost ‘otherworldly’, you might say … Which is why we like to call it: “Beyond the Moon.”
Escape the world and travel Beyond the Moon. Take some time to renew, rejuvenate, recover and get back in touch with yourself and your loved ones.
