Dust off your gloves, brooches and fascinators, because we shall be celebrating the wedding of Princess Eugenie to Jack Brooksbank in style! 

Perched high on the Parktown Ridge, Emoyeni was designed by the starchitects of their time, William Leck and Frank Emley for Henry Hull, who would later become the Union’s first Minister of Finance. The red-brick home is perhaps Johannesburg’s most accomplished statement of Wren-inspired architecture. The details are quintessentially Edwardian - Tuscan colonnades, Palladian windows, white eaves trim, stone insets and segmental pediments – but the scale, befitting its important owner, is monumental.

We will be exploring British royal weddings over the last century in these sumptuous surroundings - all the planning and preparations that went into these momentous occasions, and the love stories of each royal couple. From Queen Victoria to the recent wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, we will delve into the lives of 10 royal brides. 

And then the guests of our exclusive event will be treated to a delicious high tea in the beautiful surrounds of Emoyeni. Feel free to dress up with hats and gloves for this royal occasion.
