Destination Wedding at Boschendal

The Couple

Barbara & Bruno

The Venue

Boschendal Wine Estate

About the day

Barbara and Bruno travelled from their home in Vienna to celebrate their wedding with family and friends in South Africa.  They chose the beautiful Boschendal as their wedding venue, making use of both The Olive Press and The Werf Restaurant.  Boschendal has plenty of luxury self catering accommodation options and having all the guests stay on the farm, made the entire celebration even more special and intimate.

The ceremony took place on the lawn in front of The Olive Press, beneath a Bedouin tent and with the majestic mountains as their backdrop. After drinks and canapés, the bridal party made their way up to The Werf Restaurant for dinner and dancing.

It was such an honour to work with Barbara and Bruno and to be part of this wedding. We wish them all the happiness for their future!

Getting Married in Hout Bay – South Africa

Getting Married in Hout Bay – South Africa


Are you considering getting married in Hout Bay?  Hout Bay is situated in a valley on the Atlantic Seaboard, a mere twenty kilometres from Cape Town CBD, in a protected bay between Chapman’s Peak and Mount Sentinel.  It doesn’t matter which road you choose to reach the lively town, you will be greeted with some of the Cape’s most spectacular beauty and the bay’s passionate residents!

Driving in over Constantia Neck the route takes you on the picturesque, lush, almost forest-like Main Road curving into the valley. Coming over from Cape Town on Llundudno’s side is a postcard pretty drive, accompanied by the Atlantic Ocean on your right (don’t forget to stop for a cocktail at the Twelve Apostles).  And the pièce de résistance, Chapman’s Peak Drive with its world famous majestic scenery, will lead you in from Noordhoek.

Hout Bay also has no scarcity of wedding venues.  Tintswalo Atlantic, newly rebuilt after the Cape fire earlier this year, is the 5 star luxury lodge nestled on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean between Hout Bay and Noordhoek on Chapman’s Peak Drive.  The lodge is uniquely designed and offers a complete private and intimate wedding experience.

Hout Bay Manor (image) is a sparkling, hidden gem of luxury and indulgence right in the middle of the town. Created in the traditional Cape Colonial Style, the manor has been completely restored, recapturing the tranquillity and allure of a bygone era.  You will be completely charmed!

Riverside Estates sits in the middle of the valley across the road from the famous World of Birds and boasts with a restored Cape Dutch manor house and a lush garden ideal for summer wedding ceremonies.  The property is working towards eco-sustainability and upliftment of the whole of Hout Bay community.

Suikerbossie Restaurant on Llundudno’s side needs no introduction with most Capetonians and has magnificent views overlooking the valley, Chapman’s Peak and the bay below.

Maison Noir is a tranquil Eastern and African inspired villa high up in the mountain, ideal for accommodation and relaxing pre and post wedding.

Whatever you do, don’t miss out on a stroll on Hout Bay’s beach, a visit to the culturally rich fishing harbour and the world’s best fish ’n chips restaurant, Fish on the Rocks!  Cheyne’s restaurant in the Main Road is a ‘must-do’ – a unique culinary experience that will definitely make you come back for more.

The Event Planners is based in Hout Bay and we are waiting to hear from you.  Let us guide you through the best the valley has to offer.  Pop us an email or give us a ring and we will meet you at one of our favourite coffee spots (or wine).
