Since there have been Hatunot features on Israel wedding venues on the beach, wineries, and garden venues, today focuses on venues in one of the most special geographical locations to Israel, the desert. Below are some of my top finds of wedding venues in Israel’s south that will have you planning a wedding where our biblical ancestors once wed.
Neot Kedumim- A biblical landscape reserve in the negev desert, Neot Kedumim hosts several facilities available for event rental. Ophira’s Garden seats 200 guests in a room surrounded by large boulders, while up to 800 guests can be hosted in the “Choice Products” Garden of which Jacob sent to Israel.
Mishmar HaNegev– A large event space with outdoor grounds including a large pool and clean,modern landscaping, Mishmar HaNegev is a great venue for those looking for a wedding in a south without giving up to amenities of a modern venue.
Biankini Beach– Off the coast of the Dead Sea is Biankini Beach with its outdoor event spaces and Moroccan cuisine. In addition to 2 event spaces that can fit up to 350 people, there is also an outdoor ampitheater for larger groups and an authentic Moroccan tent for up to 180 guests.
Agadata– Agadata is a large indoor/outdoor venue that emphasizes its desert location through architecture and its colorful design. In addition to its wedding facilities, Adagata also has hotel suites, a perfect solution for your traveling guests.
Hameara– No other wedding in the world will be in an atmosphere like your wedding at Hameara. The venue sits inside an open space surrounded by desert rock and hills.
Yarok Al HaMayim- Yarok al Hamayim is a beautiful open space in Kibbutz Hulda (not too far south from Ramle) where you can have a rustic wedding without going north.
Rama’s Kitchen- For small groups, Rama’s kitchen is the ultimate culinary experience. Located in the Judean hills, Rama’s Kitchen can hold up to 150 guests with natural views that are hard to come by. all food is made from local ingredients and the fruit and vegetables are from a home grown organic garden or neighboring organic farms.
