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.
CAP CLASSIQUE: 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 create 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 ambiance if so required. Click here to see more.
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 aswell 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. – Cuan & Natalie

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

Just wanted to say thank you for all your help with bringing my dream wedding to life. My guests have all said that it was a beautiful event, that they loved the venue and were so pleased to have been able to take what they didn’t finish at the picnic home because it fed them all weekend (they were so chuffed!). Thank you so much for having us, answering all my questions leading up to the date and making sure my entrance was smooth and seamless. – Lauren van Haght
