  • Western Cape wedding venue allegedly turns away lesbian couple saying they don’t host same-sex marriages
    Posted by on Mar 27th, 2014

    Some shameful news from the Western Cape. A farm in the Riebeek valley has allegedly told an engaged lesbian couple that they are not welcome to get married there. The couple had chosen the Kilcairn farm as their wedding venue and even recieved a contract confirming the wedding date, but were later told that the owners do not host same-sex marriages.

    Swak.

    Guess it must be in the T&C’s then.

    “An engaged lesbian couple have been left humiliated by a Western Cape wedding venue that told them to go somewhere else because they won’t host same-sex weddings.”

    “They were initially welcomed and on the 2nd of March met with Kilcairn manager Cara King at the venue. The couple fell in love with the beautiful location and were sent a contract by Kilcairn with a confirmed wedding date of 17 January 2015.”

    “Ten days later, Brown-Waterson received an e-mail from an apologetic King that reads: “Unfortunately I have to share with you some bad news. The owners of the farm have asked me to let you know that they are not willing to host same-sex marriages here on the farm.” [mambaonline]

    Swak.
