A Stellenbosch homestead that dates as far back as 1692, Weltevreden was first awarded heritage status in 1975. The H-shaped Cape Dutch manor house is said to have been built by Voortrekker leader Piet Retief for his sister, Deborah, and her husband in 1812 and and boasts six beautiful, intricate gables. For the wedding ceremony, Weltevreden offers the use of its rustic Waenhuis as a dedicated onsite chapel. Thereafter, guests walk across the homestead to the manicured back garden of the Manor House for pre-reception drinks before navigating the mystical pathways of the Maze to a private and enchanted covered courtyard. Catering is strictly in-house, although corkage is allowed for your preferred wine and champagne.
