Victoria Falls Hotel Wedding – Get married at the luxury 5* Victoria Falls Hotel. This ‘grand old lady’ (est. 1904) has hosted many dignitaries and famous people but constantly updated to give you all the style and comforts of home.
The Victoria Falls Hotel has to be one of the most exclusive and romantic venues in the world to get married. With its own unique chapel, beautiful lush gardens; overlooking the magnificent Victoria Falls Bridge and Gorge. We will take care of your every need and ensure that your wedding is very special.
The Victoria Falls Hotel’s bedrooms have been refurbished to provide a perfect balance of modern amenities; without losing the grand Edwardian architecture. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the center of Victoria Falls Town. And just a ten-minute walk along the hotel’s private path from the actual Falls.
Please note due to logistical constraints; the Hotel will only do weddings when the Bride and Groom and at least 50% of guests attending have booked and confirmed accommodation at the Hotel.
The Hotel cannot accommodate weddings during the peak season unless the hotel is booked on an exclusive-use basis. Peak season includes:
August, September, October, 24th December – 10th January, or the Easter Weekend.
The hotel offers beautiful gardens for photos after the ceremony. Guests can enjoy sparkling wine or champagne, or canapés and tea after the ceremony.
