Exquisite Wedding Venue
Superbly situated beneath the snow-capped spires of Mount Kenya, overlooking its own dam, enveloped in velvet lawns and on its own conservancy, Mukima House is the epitome of a gracious wedding and honeymoon venue. It boasts broad stone terraces, plump beds of lavender, a galleried staircase, a baronial reception area, a suite of reception rooms and its own mini spa. It also offers a palatial honeymoon suite (with a log fire, Edwardian claw-foot bathtubs and ‘his and hers’ pre- or post-wedding massage), and a choice of at least ten venues for the actual ceremony. Choose from by the dam (arrival by boat or helicopter optional), on the lawns, in the central courtyard, on the terrace, by the oval swimming pool, under a passionflower bower, in the estate grasslands or against a background of elephants that await just a short drive down the road.
The house is fully equipped to host small weddings, available to rent is a dance floor, tables, chairs and table settings for 150 people. Catering can be in house or arranged with trusted and tried local caterers. Music, flowers and other party requirements can be arranged through our wedding planner, using only the best service providers.
We can reccommend companies for additional luxury tents to be erected on site for larger parties, both marquees and for overnight guests.
