The lake view can hold up double that size of guest list but comes at an extra cost. Then there’s the Kigwa view which is beautifully set next to a manmade lake and can hold up 500 of your wedding guests. The most popular ground at Windsor is The 10th Tee which is designed to accommodate 1500 guests and has a beautiful backdrop.

The other packages which are diamond choice package, jade choice and pearl choice don’t offer as many perks but are offered at slightly more affordable rates.

Location: Rosellyn Rd, Nairobi

Cost: Ksh. 50,000

Type of Venue: Garden wedding

Why we love Florienta Gardens: To start off, the price of the wedding venue is quite low compared to many of the ones in this list. For a venue that can hold 700 guests, it’s quite affordable. But bear in mind that there are other details not included in that price such as a generator and toilet facilities. So you’ll have to pay extra for this.
