Conservatory and Glass Marquee Wedding Venues

There is something extremely romantic about getting married in a glass marquee or conservatory. The feeling of being one with your surroundings, the uninterrupted views, and the twinkling lights reflecting off the glass. We have compiled a list of the Top Conservatory and Glass Marquee Wedding Venues in the Western Cape.


The views are exceptional from this small farm on the slopes of Paarl mountain. This beautiful country estate is within easy reach of Cape Town and central to the innovative wine culture of the Western Cape. Situated in the heart of the Cape Winelands district, on the Suid Agter Paarl road, Belair’s neighbours include several well-known wine estates. With breathtaking views of the Boland mountains, this country estate is surrounded by magnificent scenery, where you can create a function that will long be remembered.

Belair is home to one of the most beautiful country garden wedding venues in the Western Cape. Belair Pavilion is a contemporary glass and steel building with wrap around sliding glass doors. Beautifully positioned in an exquisite garden, it is virtually alive, covered in evergreen Star Jasmine that is in bloom late October / November. A dramatic water feature creates an aisle linking the Pavilion to a quaint 120 seater ivy-covered chapel, all surrounded by magnificent Wisteria covered arches. For larger gatherings, Belair offers a beautiful outdoor ceremony area for up to 250 guests. the Water Pear Tree ceremony area provides wonderful shade in summer months. The area features a striking black and white tiled aisle with the most beautiful rose covered arches.

One of the many great features of this venue is the fairy light lit outdoor patio, adjacent to the main reception area. It features a wonderful fire pit and an intimate outdoor dance floor. The charming Country House on site, offers accommodation for up to 28 guests in 14 individually decorated suites.

A full-scale labyrinth and exquisite reflection pool are only two of the many highlights that makes Belair exceptionally different. The estate is not open to the public, ensuring privacy and exclusivity.

Belair is not only the most beautiful venue, but the staff and team are extremely organised, friendly and helpful and go above and beyond to ensure your wedding dreams come true. We got married at Belair 1.5 weeks ago and loved every moment of the experience and working with Jason and Wil throughout our journey. I highly recommend Belair as a wedding venue!!!

Thank you SOOOOOOOO much for everything you did to make the wedding the magical event that Steph wanted.  From the moment that Steph first contacted you to inquire about having her wedding there, you were there to support and guide her every step of the way.  As we discovered, it was a bit of a challenge to plan a wedding from the UK and the States, but your recommendations of San-Marie, Jana, Krummel’s, and Maurinus were so helpful, and they were all perfect for the occasion.  And we couldn’t have asked for a better wedding coordinator:)  How lucky we were to have you overseeing all the details on the big day. Everything went without a hitch, and you were such a soothing presence.  It was such a happy and unforgettable day.  Mr. and Mrs. Akers are off to a beautiful start!!! – Suzy Hale

the conservatory

Nestled on the banks of the Kastaiing River, The Conservatory is set among vineyards and ancient oaks, presenting an absolute hidden gem for any event of your choice.

Using light and energy as key components at our facilities, a free flow of indoor/outdoor harmony is created. All year round, vast expanses of glass allow our guests the opportunity to fully appreciate the picturesque views that Franschhoek and the beauty of the surroundings has to offer.

During the sunny summer months, guests are able to enjoy South African weather at its best by combining the experience of the outdoors with all the assurances of indoor conveniences. During winter, all the elements of this season can be appreciated from the inside looking out. Whilst rain pelts down and picturesque mountains peep through the clouds, guests can relax next to large fireplaces and enjoy the splendour of it all.

Our philosophy is simple yet stylish, inspiring but versatile, catering to all who require a blank canvas to create a unique event that transforms a space into a true reflection of themselves.

Thank you so much! Both to you, personally, for running the day and to your Conservatory team for their hard work and helpfulness. The day was so special and we have had so many comments from family and friends about what a spectacular venue it was! The set-up was perfect and the breakdown was seamless and so organised. Thanks for collecting everything for us and making sure that all the pieces were in their place and looked fantastic. – Bronwyn & Matt
