Vondeling Wines Wedding Venue – There are breathtaking views of mountains and vineyards in every direction. It’s a privilege to be able to view the surrounding landscape from the highest peak of the Paardeberg where you’ll find one of the Cape’s original Signal Cannons, which was once used to communicate to farmers that a ship had arrived in Cape Town’s Table Bay Harbour.
About Vondeling Weddings
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 reception is seamless, as the chapel is conveniently situated alongside the function venue—meaning you don’t have to trade in the views.
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 caters for a maximum of 100 guests.
