Snugly enclosed by its own lush vineyards and set against the sloping hills of the Stellenbosch Winelands, newly established Eikenhof Estate is a gem of a destination for wedding celebrations, corporate retreats and leisurely family festivities.
Eikenhof is a 3km scenic drive along Fischers Road, just off the Bottelary Road. Centrally located between Stellenbosch, Brackenfell and Kuilsriver, the Estate is easily accessible, yet tucked away just far enough from the busy main road to make visitors feel like they have arrived at their own private and peaceful hideaway.
Eikenhof Estate boasts a modern, elegant function and wedding venue, aptly named Cap Classique, and can comfortably accommodate up to 120 people in a banqueting set up. The design of the walkway leading from the parking area to the venue is a striking match of wooden Pergola’s and natural stone barrier walls, creating the perfect setting for a wedding ceremony under a canopy or an ideal spot for pre-drinks and canapés.
The large indoor fireplace, magnificent chandeliers and beautiful sunken in bulk heads which features its own mood lighting creates an ambience second to none.
In addition, there is a covered veranda leading off the main venue with its own fireplace for guests to mingle.
In order to cement all the elements together, the lawn area which is strategically situated between the walkway, veranda and main venue is ideally situated to accommodate a marquee or stretch tent which adds another dimension of intrigue and ambience if so required.
– Pergola [Ceremony] 80 Guests
– Cap Classique [Reception] 100 Guests with a 4x5m Dance Area / 120 Guests without a Dance Area
* Please be advised that the venue capacity is determined by the seating plan and space required for the dance ﬂoor, staging or other special equipment *
This has taken us just over 3 months to do, but what a rollercoaster ride it was to plan our wedding day. We needed time to take it all in and enjoy the craziness that came with planning our wedding. Where do we even begin?! The former of our wedding planning months are no longer relevant as the Eikenhof team literally took our vision together with our incredible service provider team to pull off the most incredible day we could ever have imagine. We were venue less 1 week prior to our wedding day and through wonderful friends we had the privilege of meeting Marieta and Peter. From the moment we set foot at Eikenhof they were readily available to help, assist and do anything they could to make our day what we had envisioned it to be and BETTER!
The attention to detail, communication between ourselves and our suppliers was just so refreshing, if stressed out were people, we were certainly those people. And through the storm we felt we were in they made us see the rainbow and executed on a breath-taking day nothing less than perfect. From the staffing, bar service, catering, availability of personnel, you guys were on the ball and just there at our service to assist with whatever was required. The villa we stayed at the night before the wedding as well as the night of the wedding was exquisite. Everything fitted our theme of our day perfectly and we were in awe of the beauty of the venue. Eikenhof certainly is a venue I would highly recommend, nestled away in the middle of the winelands, it really is a perfect venue for both intimate wedding or larger wedding settings. We felt so connected to our guests during the church service under the pergola and even during our photo session, everything felt homely and warm and perfect.
Eikenhof team thank you for making our dreams come true, for going the extra mile, for easing our anxiety and executing our magical day with ease. Your professionalism and eagerness to engage your couples with so much excitement and genuine passion is a true reflection of the warm feeling you receive when visiting Eikenhof. Thank you Marieta & Peter. – Cuan & Natalie
