Oakfield Farm

Farm Venue

Description

MAKING YOUR DREAM WEDDING A REALITY – Oakfield Farm located in Muldersdrift is easily accessible from both Pretoria & Johannesburg.

In 1988, Mary Slack fell in love with the farm, and with her long-time friend, David Stubbs, purchased the farm from the Harrison family. In 1991, David’s son, Matthew Stubbs, left his teaching career and trekked from the Cape with a load of horses. The task of making the farm pay its way was not as easy as it seemed. Quail eggs were sold, guinea fowl were bred, and fifteen rather wild Warmblood horses arrived from Alzu Stud to be broken in and trained as show jumpers. However, it was the old barn overlooking the indigenous wood and freshwater stream which came to the rescue. This was converted into a reception venue and is now known as the Homestead Venue.

Established in 1991, the property is filled with history, from the Dairy Venue built by Italian prisoners of war in 1940, to the majestic Oak tree that once served as rest point for the Voortrekkers before crossing the flooded Juksei River. It sadly fell after a thunderstorm but pieces of the old trunk can still be seen memorialized in the garden.

Inspired by an old stone altar in an Oak Forest which has seen the marriage of five generations of Halse children on their beautiful family farm, a charming Chapel was built in the grove of Cottonwood trees. Having grown up on horseback, it also seemed obvious to include a horse-drawn carriage. So began the vision, the “one-stop” wedding venue. Over the years, the unique Summerhouse was completed, followed by the bridal suites and the Guest House. The old chicken run in which old Mrs Harrison grew her prized orchids, then became the beautiful Conservatory.

With all the history and the original farming background, Oakfield Farm ensured to retain as much of the old farm as possible. Nguni cows & horses graze the fields with geese & guineafowl foraging on the lawns.

A visit to Oakfield Farm is an inspiration. Explore the captivating English country gardens and historic old trees while also visiting the charming forest chapel, stunning conservatory, and magnificent glass-clad venues.
