Function Venues by the Vaal River for Your Wedding


If you are shopping around for the ultimate wedding setting, the Vaal River will undoubtedly be it. With the glistening Vaal River as your backdrop, who wouldn’t feel inspired about starting the rest of their lives together? If you’ve chosen the Vaal River area for your wedding, you will be looking out for suitable function venues, and we would love to introduce ourselves at SunWa.


SunWa is not your average function venue. In addition to having a beautifully serene and romantic outlook over the Vaal River, we have facilities that will truly cater to every bride and groom, as well as all of the guests. One of the first things that couples look at is the capacity of the venue and, of course, available accommodation. In terms of capacity, SunWa has four separate venues on site, all varying in size. The smallest of the venues can cater to an intimate wedding of 10 people, and our largest can cater to 200 guests. Each venue has its own bar facilities and a buffet setup, which means that all you have to do is show up – we can take care of the rest. Everything form a place to rest, to snacks, meals, and refreshments can be carefully and professionally handled by our team. You are bound to find our team friendly, and probably just as excited about your wedding as you are.


When it comes to accommodation, we have some great facilities on offer. We can cater to 141 people sharing in the main lodge. Then we have a selection of other accommodation options, which includes double-storey Canadian log cabins, single-storey Canadian log cabins, our Thorntree cottage (thatched chalet), Quarter Deck suites, and Duck Pond rooms. You will find that all of our accommodation offerings will exceed your expectations in terms of comfort and convenience. You will probably also love our prices too. We know that functions and events can get costly, so we endeavour to keep our prices competitive.


We welcome you to compare us to other function venues by the Vaal River, but we strongly believe that a visit to our lodge will tell you everything that you need to know about us and how we can handle your wedding (or any other type of event for that matter). Our function planning team is one that is passionate about hosting events of distinction, so it really doesn’t matter what theme you have in mind for your wedding, we can customise the event to suit your needs and preferences (and budget too).
