Vondeling wedding venue lies on the slopes of the un-spoilt and undiscovered Paardeberg Mountain, approximately forty-five minutes’ drive from Cape Town. The farm was originally granted to Swedish immigrant, Olaf Bergh in 1704. The Cape Dutch farmhouse was built in 1740 and was immaculately restored by the current owners in 2005. In December of 2013, the St Clement chapel was erected to host weddings and religious services on a weekly basis.
Vondeling Wedding Venue
Wedding receptions are hosted in the classical function venue. Inside, the high thatch roof creates an elegant space and the influences of old Cape heritage as a common thread tying together nostalgia and minimal modern elegance. During the colder months, there’s a roaring fireplace to keep your guests warm. In summer and spring, receptions can be hosted on the shaded veranda overlooking the magnificent Paardeberg and surrounds or inside the airconditioned venue.
Vondeling wedding venue caters for a maximum of 100 guests.
St Clement’s Chapel
Like a chapel out of a fairy tale, the steeple of St. Clement rises up over the Paardeberg. This charming chapel – complete with a thatched roof, locally made stained glass windows, beautiful wooden pews and church bell – combines old world charm with modern simplicity and makes it a very unique place to exchange vows.
The transition to the Vondeling wedding venue is seamless, as the chapel is conveniently situated alongside the function venue—meaning you don’t have to trade in the views.
The Farm House
The immaculately restored Farm House was originally built in 1740. This historic example of Cape Dutch architecture offers seven luxurious en-suite bedrooms with mountain and garden views.
Surrounding the house are peaceful gardens with shaded terraces and a 20-meter swimming pool. There is also a secluded BBQ area, croquet court, and a spot lit tennis court.
The house offers a fully equipped kitchen as well as a dining- and sitting room; complete with a cosy fireplace. Add to that, a recreation area upstairs with snooker and satellite TV with all the necessary plug-ins and wi-fi.
A full English breakfast is served to guests daily.
