Lee and Chantelle were married at beautiful Bakenhof Winelands Lodge in the Cape with its glorious vineyard backdrop. This venue offers a package to wedding couples that includes plenty of luxurious accommodation and the use of their charming on-site chapel and gorgeous reception hall which is impressive to say the least. One immediately gets the feeling of volume and space in this wedding venue as its all made of glass, and the views out to the vineyards, gardens and the Hawequa Mountains are awe-inspiring. It’s a custom designed venue so you can imagine, they have thought of it all by also offering comfortable lounge areas and a spacious terrace for people to enjoy.

This wedding at Bakenhof was an elegant affair with spectacular flowers and decor, it was glamorous but classy. The on-site organisers go that extra mile to ensure your wedding day is one that dreams are made of. We saw this first hand when we worked with Trunk Events at this venue. Tracey and her team do a formidable job!

Like with all wedding venues we like to explore the location beforehand and for this wedding at Bakenhof it was no different. We consider the light, if it needs boosting we look for plug points (!) and consider the logistics of getting ourselves in and out without disrupting proceedings. Space, which this venue offers, is a big consideration. This beautiful location has an unmatched indoor/outdoor look and feel which is so desirable for a wedding in the winelands. Consider too that its suitable for all weather conditions.

The dream of a stress and drama-free wedding day is yours to realise at the Bakenhof Winelands Lodge. For Lee and Chantelle this was certainly the case, please take a look at their short trailer in the showcase section to get a feel of their remarkable wedding at Bakenhof experience.
