The Aisle is a long wooden deck under a canopy of mangrove trees and other exotic plants leading to the ceremonial deck area , the Ceremonial pergola is on the lowest level of a 3 tier deck area on the Dune overlooking the Indian Ocean and a pristine, wild stretch of beach on the KZN North Coast. Imagine your Guests have an amazing 180o view of the ocean with you & your Wedding Retinue in the backdrop. This beachfront area is absolutely stunning and offers the best of the bush and the beach and can seat up to 100 Guests. It is absolutely stunning and totally unique, pictures cannot adequately describe it or do it justice so we have loaded some video clips on the Wedding Video Gallery, please go to the Wedding Page on our website ( www.villaisabella.co.za ) and then go to the video gallery and have a look at the video clips marked “ Aisle to mangrove deck” and “Ceremonial deck area”, there are also some other videos there which will give you a good perspective of the mangrove aisle and the Ceremonial deck area.
 

The advantages of having the wedding ceremony on the dune in the mangroves:

As opposed to having it flat on the beach are that Guests have an amazing 180 degree view of the ocean with you & your fiance’ in the backdrop as opposed to being flat on the beach. It’s more private and  has the lush surroundings of the mangrove trees which protect Guests from any strong wind that may come up. There are often fishermen and people walking their dogs along the beach which can be a distraction during the ceremony. It’s within the confines of a secure area, has toilets and washrooms nearby and has a wooden deck walkway which makes it easily accessible for older people.

The Wedding Reception Venue: 

The Top deck can comfortably accommodate 60 Guests,  it has amazing 180 degree sea views with floor to ceiling sliding glass doors and windows and a fully equipped bar area with fridges etc. Top Deck Gallery is available here.
