Shepstone Gardens is set amid manicured gardens in the heart of the Jozi hustle, and represents a unique era in the city’s history. The main house was built from local quartz quarried by Boer prisoners during the Anglo-Boer War, and there’s a Ghandi connection too. Services offered include a wedding coordinator and a list of trusted, professional suppliers, plus tableware and garden furniture. Exclusive use on the day means you can decide how to use the different spaces.
