Renovatio River Estate is a private wedding and event venue located on the banks of the gentle Suikerbos River in Gauteng. Located only 45 minutes from Johannesburg, our exclusive 15 hectare estate is surrounded by lush green grass, shaded by tall Blue Gum trees and offers the same tranquillity of our slow running fountain while set in the surrounds of a typical South African countryside.
Renovatio’s history & heritage dates back to the early 1800’s settlers and is home to the original Uitvlugt farmhouse built over 100 years ago in 1883 around the time when Vereeniging was newly established as a small town. The entire Uitvlugt area in Midvaal was once a single farm called Uitvlugt with a single farmhouse which still stands on the Estate. The 1883 sandstone farmhouse is at the heart of Renovatio River Estate where the Bridal Suite and Lounge area is located. The farmhouse, chapel and parts of the Renovatio Banqueting Hall have been restored to its former glory featuring the original sandstones as they were built in 1883 – hence the name RENOVATIO, the Latin word for renew, revive and restore. ‘RENOVATIO’ a classical Latin word for renewal, revive or restore.
