“Heritage, History & Beauty On Your Special Day”

IPOPO – Wedding Packages

At Highland Paradise we offer a range of wedding and reception packages and your wedding planner can tailor a package to suit your needs and budget from a simple ceremony for you and your partner to an extravagant celebration to share with your family and friends.

Our dedicated wedding planner will work with you every step of the way to ensure you have a stress free wedding so you can focus on enjoying your wedding and capture a lifetime of memories.

They are sensitive to the site and traditions of our ancestors, who were also married here. They will ensure that your special day is one that is absolutely unique to you and you alone!

We are sometimes requested to perform an ancient ceremony to follow your modern one – thus merging two worlds and cultures into one!

If you wish to be married elsewhere, such as on a private beach or in a church, we are able to offer you this spectacular setting for your private cocktails, wedding dinner and combine with our cultural show.



    Note: We will send you an email confirmation once  your booking is confirmed.
