Nice to meat you



About Us

Katryn and Roux Painter are the husband and wife team behind Nice to Meat You, a wedding and function venue in Kempton Park. Having owned a boutique butchery in Stellenbosch for 3 years, and having a Masters degree in meat science has more than equipped Katryn to know a thing or two about good quality meat and combining that with her Greek heritage and love for feeding people delicious food, you know you’re in for a treat when you sit down for one of their feasts. They work alongside her mother Jenny Schoon, whose eye for detail and amazing décor talents have transformed their space into an otherworldly experience. The walls are adorned with images of old Johannesburg, giving you some insight into our rich heritage. Jenny also takes control in the kitchen, so every bite is filled with love, caring and only the best ingredients.

Wedding Venues

We have a beautiful venue, that can comfortably seat up to 100 guests, with a beautiful chapel area with stained glass windows and original pews bought from old churches around South Africa. If the outdoors are more your thing, we have spacious gardens where all seasons make for gorgeous backdrops for your perfect day. The abundance of trees create a magical canopy of sunset coloured leaves in Autumn and a lush canopy of green in Summer.

Wedding Photographs

The venue itself has been the backdrop for a photoshoot for Georgetown, a band with an eclectic look and feel, which fit in perfectly with our vibe as well as for a Winter Fashion Shoot for Twin Lifestyle – a twin run image consultancy business who focus on bridal styling and make up, where their model the famous and beautiful actress Donnalee Roberts made for a picture perfect bride, giving you a glimpse into what you can imagine should you choose to spend your magical day here. The main house on the property is almost like a castle out of a fairy tale, built completely out of stone, with stained glass windows and covered in ivy, it truly creates a magical backdrop for any occasion.

Wedding Planning

We are more than welcome to assists with any basic requirements you might have, but we work very well with any wedding planner of your choice. We can of course assist in pointing you in the right direction should you need someone dedicated on the day.


We are currently in the final stages of getting our guest house up and running. We have a majestic bridal suit with a massive en suite bathroom and views over the pool and garden, with a private balcony where the bridal party can share a glass of bubbly to calm the nerves before the service and the bridal couple can relax and reflect on their big day, after the celebrations. We offer romantic turn down service and of course a delicious breakfast before you take on life as a married couple. We have five other en-suite rooms available, all kitted out with every modern luxury you could need, comfort being of utmost importance for us. A delicious breakfast will be awaiting all guests the next morning, with delicious coffees being delivered to your door, should you need to recover a bit from the night before.


Aside from being a wedding and events venue, we also open to the public, when a gap in the calendar allows, bringing in musical guests such as Chris Chameleon, Valiant Swart, Georgetown and blues master, Gerald Clark, to name but a few. We also host game night, braai nights and we’re big on Sunday Lunches where the whole family can join. We’re also a very popular venue for bridal showers and kitchen teas, having hosted South African celebrity, the beautiful Rolanda Marais’s baby shower here.

Kids Party Venue

We have a kids play area and more than enough space on the grass to put a jumping castle or get Clamber Club to come and entertain the little ones, having hosted a couple of kids parties here since we have opened.
