Cape winelands wedding destination
For a bride-to-be or couple on the brink of marriage, the decisions, planning and build-up to their happily-ever-after are plenty. We get that, so we thought we’d run through our unique offering, to ease the venue-choosing task at hand.
Location is key. Our venue is easily accessible, a mere 10-minute drive from Stellenbosch on the Polkadraai Road, making it a breeze for guests and service providers to find. For couples having their ceremony elsewhere, it would be a pleasure for guests to travel to the farm for the reception, as they’d pass beautiful farmlands to get to the venue.
Everything you’ll need. Besides the venue space, we have enough tables and chairs to accommodate up to 130 guests. The reception tables can be grouped to form banquet-style tables, or individually used for intimate celebrations. The white bikini chairs are elegant and simple, blending in with a wide variety of wedding decor styles. We also have enough crockery and glassware for all guests.
A photographer’s dream. The rustic-elegant space is surrounded by the picturesque landscape of mountains, vineyards and greenery, making it the picture-perfect spot for a festive gathering. Favourite photo spots on the farm always include settings with the dam and vineyards in the background. The modern-rustic interior of the reception and ceremony space also make for interesting, ambient visuals. Definitely Instagram-worthy, we’d say.
Coordination station. When it comes to planning their special day, we like to lend our clients a helping hand. Elandi, our venue manager and coordination expert, meets with couples a month prior to their wedding day, to assist with arrangements. She gives advice on everything from decor to logistics, sets up a detailed function sheet, communicates with service providers and ties up all the loose ends of the planning process. She also oversees the set-up and cleaning before the wedding, the overall coordination on the day, as well as the cleaning after the event.
Under one roof. 401 Rozendal is truly a one-stop wedding space – from the reception area, indoor loft chapel, veranda and lawn area to the dance floor, bar and lounge. Couples can thus have their wedding ceremony, pre-drinks and reception at the same location, no need for guests to travel and waste valuable socialising time.
Cottage comfort. We have five self-catering cottages on the farm, ideal accommodation for the bridesmaids, wedding party or immediate family. The three-star cottages are ideal for the relaxed bride who wants to get ready to the pace of the countryside, surrounded by views of farmlands and mountains. The cottages are situated a few hundred metres from the venue, so the bride can be rest assured to arrive on time.
