Intimate events. Magnificent moments.
Moments@Golden View is a new, intimate space in Clarens for those who wish to have a unique and meaningful ceremony filled with memorable moments. With intimacy and love in mind, it is the epitome of a destination function venue, accentuated with magnificent mountain views and excellent facilities.
Small-scale events
The focus is on small-scale events, ceremonies and celebrations with a difference. Moments@Golden View is an inviting, tranquil space that connects nature and divinity. Situated at the foothills of the Maloti Mountains, the venue overlooks a beautiful orchard and the majestic Mount Horeb. This makes it the ideal spot for an alfresco brunch, luncheon or dinner beneath an old Willow tree.
Venue within a stunning setting
The idea for an honest, unpretentious venue came when Golden View owners Burger and Jolena planned their own wedding a few years ago. Being confronted by the size and scope of a traditional wedding, stressed them out. As strong individualists, they opted to rather embrace the notion of a small, alternative celebration.

They started looking for a venue within a stunning setting that catered for a small ceremony, but it proved to be a huge challenge. This gave life to the idea to establish an intimate micro event venue in Clarens where one can enjoy and capture special moments with a small number of important guests.

“The ability to simplify means eliminating the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak” – Hans Hofmann
Advantages of a Small Ceremony

Personalize your wedding/ceremony

Every aspect of the day should be meaningful. This means you can omit aspects that don’t excite you. Rather splurge on the details that really matter to you – the flowers, the food, the dress or the photographer.

Unwind and be wed

One of the key benefits of an intimate wedding is that it is way less stressful than a big, traditional bash. With only your nearest and dearest in attendance, you can relax and savor the moment.

Treat your most special guests

A shorter guest list reduces expenses. Savings can be used to personalize the guests’ experience.

Spend quality time with your partner and guests

With a wedding on a micro scale, you have the luxury of a whole weekend of celebrations with your significant other and those closest to you.
