The Franschhoek Cellar offers a beautiful location for the perfect wedding day

Situated at the entrance to the quaint Franschhoek village, the Western Cape’s ‘mini France’, The Franschhoek Cellar offers a variety of venues to host a wedding.

Whether you’re after a small and intimate affair or a larger gathering for up to 300 guests, there’s the perfect place to celebrate your big day.

When it comes to weddings, the Franschhoek Cellars’ motto is ‘because everyone deserves their perfect day’ – and that’s their promise to you, an idyllic day in a heavenly setting.

Apart from the stunning views of the vineyards, the valley and the surrounding mountains, the various venues offer the ideal wedding setting, whether in summer or winter.

The wedding venue prices range from R5,000 for use of the garden pavilion for an intimate ceremony, up to R40,000 for use of The Function Venue, accommodating up to 300 guests. If you want to go all out, you can book the entire estate for exclusive use, too.

Irrespective of the venue you choose, the space is available until midnight, or you can pay a surcharge should you like to extend the celebrations until the wee hours of the morning. Food and drinks are charged separately; “we encourage guests to come up with their own menus,” says Executive Chef Jerry Kennedy, who is happy to meet with all couples to discuss their food requirements and to assist them with planning the perfect menu for their big day.
