Wedding at La Petite Dauphine


Wedding at La Petite Dauphine

Mart-Mari & Oliver’s wedding at La Petite Dauphine was our 5th at this amazing Franschhoek Wedding Venue.  La Petite Dauphine comes in at number 7 in our review of the Top 10 Wedding Venues in Cape Town – read more about our top venues by following the links at the bottom of this post.

This was definitely one of the most enjoyable weddings of the season! – what a crowd – never short of cracking a joke and having a good laugh – they had a blast!

Mart Mari & Oliver both did their preparations on site.  La Petite Dauphine boasts with luxury accommodation for 23 people – enough to sleep your main bridal party with ease.  The outdoor ceremony was done on the lawn by the old pump house that is surrounded by vineyards and orchards and hugged by the impressive Franschoek mountains.

Pre-drinks  was done in the lovely rustic Cafe BonBon that doubles as a coffee shop during weekdays.  To end the night off, the reception was held in the converted barn – a fine art gallery during daytime.  Do yourself a favour an visit La Petite Dauphine for a coffee wine tasting of artwork hunting.

Within the next week we will post another wedding at La Petite Dauphine.  Carel and Anuska got married there this past summer – a classic outdoor reception setting under the 200-year-old oaks.

La Petite Dauphine is a great All-In-One Wedding Venue that allows everything from the preparations to the ceremony and reception to take place on site.  This saves a lot of traveling time on a day that every second counts.
