About Amorosa

“Where words fail, music speaks…”

-Christian Anderson-

After many years of working in the hospitality industry, Ellen Steyn fulfilled her dream of establishing a beautiful, and utterly romantic wedding and events venue, nestled between Pretoria North and Hartbeespoort Dam. With the support of her husband, Douw, and her parents Kobus and Doris Van Schalkwyk. Doris has brought her immense gardening skills and Kobus, his unique eye for detail. As directors of Amorosa Wedding and Conference Venue, the four each bring valuable and unique skills, ensuring the most professional service.

The unique Amorosa name came in a flash of inspiration one day at a flea market, when mother and daughter observed large musical instruments crafted from metal, and instantly knew that this would form the main theme of their venue. The Italian musical command, Amoroso indicates “playing with affection, and warm, loving emotion. We have replaced the “o” at the end with “a” for a bit of extra flair!

At Amorosa, every detail is carefully planned and meticulously executed. Everything from mouth-watering plated meals or buffets, to delicate candle-holders and musical, romantic, and sophisticated décor are arranged to provide an exquisite, and unforgettable atmosphere.

The needs of every couple, organization, or guest are very important to us! View our Weddings page to see our wedding packages.
