Meet you at The Quarters

Meet you at The Quarters

Already well-known as an incredibly special wedding venue, White Light recently expanded their beautiful property in the Highveld countryside to include The Quarters – an on-site property that houses five different double suites, perfect for a weekend getaway or for the bridal party.

When we hear the name the forum company, we immediately think of iconic venues across South Africa. From the striking turbine hall, Newtown to the forum the campus in Bryanston. The distinct style and unique character of each venue has become the forum’s trademark. One of our favourite spots, White Light is the ultimate in wedding sophistication and a must-see option for any couples looking for a venue that is classic and chic. But there’s more …  thanks to the recently added on-site accommodation, The Quarters at White Light, it’s the perfect destination for a weekend wedding or a sneaky getaway just outside of Joburg.

As with the rest of White Light, the décor and design of The Quarters is timeless and elegant, evoking a sense of old-world grandeur combined with modern style. Each of the five double en-suite rooms has been furnished with minimalist white and grey tones accentuated with pops of unexpected warmth and colour. While they are linked by an overarching tribute to clean lines and African influences, there is also a distinct individuality to each room. The main suite, flawlessly decorated and featuring floor to ceiling windows, is filled with natural light, a fireplace, and an elegant four-poster queen-sized bed, not to mention the large en-suite bathroom equipped with a beautiful bath and shower. Wicker furniture and pink florals bring the whole room together, making it a memorable and intimate spot to spend the night.

An extensive outdoor area complete with a fire pit (we’re picturing roasting marshmallows already) and lush green garden make The Quarters perfect for entertaining, too. Inside, a comfortable lounge creates a central communal area for guests with a large dining room table. Kitchen facilities are sparse, but when staying here you shouldn’t need to cook … the restaurant team are available to cater to all your culinary needs. If you’re taking a little weekend getaway with family or friends, you can either choose to have the staff come and serve dinner in your accommodation, or you can take a short walk through the gardens and enjoy your breakfast or lunch at the newly opened restaurant on the premises, The Kitchen|L’antico Giardino. Each meal is an unforgettable event where delicious meals take centre stage and guests have the chance to experience true luxury dining. From breakfast (from 8am to 11am) which includes delicious treats like toasted English muffins, and pan-fried baby trout or free-range rib-eye beef in the afternoons, The Kitchen at L’Antico Giardino is the cherry on the top of an unmatched weekend experience. Situated in Lanseria, just an hour’s drive from Joburg, we think that this hidden gem is well worth the short drive out of the city. Whether you’re planning to have your wedding at White Light or are just looking for somewhere special to spend a weekend away with your nearest and dearest, The Quarters will guarantee you a truly memorable experience.

The Quarters at White Light is available for full rental at only R9 000 per night for 10 people, including breakfast.
