Harare Garden Wedding Venue: Paradise Gardens

We paid Paradise Gardens in Hatfield Harare a visit. Along with it we took some photos to give you an insight into these popular gardens. We say popular because the place is fully booked most of the weekends until about September 2008 with two weddings every weekend. Our impression is that the property itself housing the gardens has been kept fairly up to standard despite the general economic deterioration in Zimbabwe.

Paradise Gardens is essentially made up of two garden wedding venues (with option for tent set-up) both of which can be used for the ceremony, photos and reception. Of the two gardens, there is one for Z$50billion [USD1000.00] which has excellent facilities including a pool side [pictured above] ceremony space and another one for Z$45billion [USD900.00] also with great facilities. Our recommendation is the first one for Z$50billion. The gardens can accommodate up to 500 people each which makes perfect for a Zimbabwean wedding.
Paradise Gardens offers only the gardens for your wedding (and other obvious facilities like ablutions etc). This excludes tents, chairs and catering which you need to organise for yourself. The downside to Paradise Gardens currently is that they have not had electricity for the last 2 months. So all the weddings that have been taking place there have been relying on own generators (an additional cost for you in terms of fuel). This lack of electricity also affects other water features like fountains which use electricity. When running, these features makes the place much much nicer. Cross your fingers, should you settle for them, that on your day electricity will be in abundance.

Their payment terms for the above mentioned figures; a 50% deposit and the balance a month before your special day. Payment can be done via RTGS/ bank transfer or cash. The good thing; if you pay today, your wedding in September or next week will not be affected by any price changes. By the way the gardens are available to you and your guests for the whole day on your special day. Also available is a huge secure car park that can handle your guests and other extras.

Our final verdict for Paradise Gardens: 8.0 out of 10
