The Old Chapel is a small wine cellar dating from the 1700’s which has been tastefully transformed into an intimate chapel for wedding ceremonies. The Old Chapel can also be transformed into a cosy, more intimate space to hold your reception and dance party for boutique weddings.
The Lawn consists of breathtaking views, envision the sun setting over Table Mountain in the distance, old oak trees and vineyards that wrap around the area and mountains as far as the eye can see. This is an exquisite area for outside ceremonies, sundowners or even an outdoor reception. The Barn can be used in conjunction with the old chapel, as stylish glass doors separate the two spaces. The extra-large fireplace or air-conditioned facility makes this the ideal spot for a smaller event, both winter and summer.
The Main Venue is a beautifully renovated historic wine cellar that is the flagship of our function spaces. While the original Cape Dutch style was retained, the designers and architects artfully married tradition with contemporary fittings and finishes. Two large courtyards with cozy fireplaces and stylish lounge pockets, as well as a beautiful wooden and granite Bar facility complement the Main Venue. We offer a variety of packages and options at different venues on the estate. From a small, intimate wedding in The Old Chapel or The Barn, an outside ceremony and reception on the lawn, to a large celebration in the Main Venue. There is a space for each memorable moment of your special day. Click here to see more.

Barend & myself are coming down from an incredible high of the last few days & cannot thank you enough for all your assistance during this whole process. From the very first day you set our minds at ease & guided us so effortlessly through this wonderful time. You really have a talent for ensuring everything runs smoothly & if it doesn’t – you ensure there is always a Plan B. Barend & I were so impressed by your constant communication with us, that you gave us advice that was really valuable (but also extremely helpful), that you always had everything in control & that you always went the extra mile to ensure our day was a success. And what a HUGE success it was! Every single guest we spoke too gushed about how amazing the venue was, how organised & helpful the Zorgvliet staff were, & especially how you ensured everything ran like clockwork. The groomsmen & bridesmaids were especially impressed with how at ease you made them feel on Saturday. Thank you for always answering our silly questions & making us feel as though the whole of Zorgvliet was just there for us! How lucky indeed. We can’t thank you enough & are so grateful that you were there the whole time to guide us from our engagement to our wedding day. – Marina & Barend
