Vrede en Lust Wedding Venue is a Wine Estate, conveniently located in the middle of Stellenbosch & Franschhoek; a mere 40-minute drive from Cape Town.
But it is not only the close proximity that attracts, but also the breathtaking surroundings of vineyards and mountains that hug this prestigious 300-year-old wine estate. The main buildings on the farm is a prime example of the Cape Dutch architecture – the original Manor House and slave quarters, now all utilised as accommodation for wedding guests.
Vrede en Lust is what we call an All-in-One wedding venue. It has all the facilities on-site, which means no time has to be wasted in travelling between the ceremony and reception locations. The beautiful Manor House has an amazing bridal suite that doubles up as the preparations venue for brides. In all, 22 guests can be accommodated in 11 luxury double rooms. In fact, when you book the venue, the accommodation comes included, a very appealing factor if your main wedding party comes from abroad or from Gauteng!
The Vrede en Lust Wedding Venue
The outdoor ceremony location, on a lawn overlooking miles of vineyards, stretching to the foot of the Simonsberg mountains. The phrase “getting close to nature” cannot be more apt. For wet and adverse weather conditions the renovated barn lends itself as the perfect indoor alternative.
Pre-dinner drinks are normally done in the well-manicured gardens of the Manor house however, there are plenty more locations to choose from. The wedding packages grant the wedding party exclusive use of the estate!
The unique Vineyard Terrace reception venue that overlooks the mountains and can be opened up on 3 sides is the perfect romantic winelands venue. It is a blank canvas and can be transformed to suit every style or preference. Trust me, on those warm summer nights in Cape Town there’s not a venue in the whole of the Cape Winelands that is a match to this one!
This vineyard estate venue is sure to leave a lasting impression. Truly a picturesque location to celebrate your big day.
