As a family owned and managed apple and olive farm, we provide a unique, laid-back environment where each bride can project her own ideas in her own style. We want to keep our farm exclusive and provide our full attention to each celebration, thus we only ever host one function on any given weekend. Our function facility offers space for anything from small, personal weddings or functions to larger celebrations, accommodating up to 140 seated guests.
Rockhaven Farm is known for its’ boathouse, beautiful lake, rolling orchard views and top-class service, the perfect setting to design your memorable celebration. We are more than happy to accommodate special requests and expressions of individuality! Rockhaven Farm is nestled in the exquisite surroundings of the Elgin Valley, a large, lush area of land, circled by mountains in the Overberg region of South Africa. Our valley lies about 70 km southeast of Cape Town, just beyond the Hottentots Holland Mountains. The Elgin region is centred on the town of Grabouw.
What a joy it was to get married at Rockhaven Farm! The grounds were immaculate, the boat shed on the lake was serene, and the reception venue perfect for the occasion! Liz and the team were very helpful! The afternoon canapes on the lawn was certainly a highlight! I highly recommend this venue! – Megan Salvage
This magical farm has the personality of its owners imprinted on its soul. De Uijlenes is a family run venue, we are not a corporate wedding business that churns weddings out and doesn’t take note of your individuality. We are a wedding venue that reflects you as a couple and if you are going to spend a bunch of money to celebrate your ‘I do’s’ then you’d might as well find a venue that suits your personality and that you feel comfortable in.
Snuggled within a stunning valley, near the seaside village of Gansbaai in the Western Cape of South Africa, you will find De Uijlenes. De Uijlenes has been a working dairy and vegetable farm for centuries while remaining in the same family for nearly two hundred years.
Be it a magical fairytale, boho festival chic, rustic affair or just downright quirky wedding you are after, this wedding venue can reflect your personalities and make your wedding totally unique to any other.
We offer a range of packages and catering options to suit your individual tastes and requirements. We have a team who love working with couples to create a fun, magical wedding which will wow your guests and reach what you envision for your special day. With two equally unique and different wedding venues on the farm to choose from and surrounded by glorious countryside, don’t expect to leave thinking ‘that was average’ as you will be blown away.
The most beautiful rustic venue, amazing food and friendly, super helpful staff. We loved that the majority of our guests could stay on the farm and we could make a weekend of it. Also, these guys are super organised, they think about every little detail, things that you don’t even think about. The Nightjar was the perfect choice for our cosy and intimate winter wedding. Thank you De Uijlenes for helping us plan a special wedding filled with so many great memories. Get married here people, you won’t regret it! – Melani Marais

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
In the heart of the Overberg, De Oudekraal venue is an authentic country wedding venue situated in the beautiful and picturesque landscape that only the Overberg has to offer. The venue is close enough to the city, but far enough to provide a beautifully tranquil and serene venue for your special day.
Our reception area can comfortably seat 200 guests, which leaves you with plenty of space for a decent dancefloor. We supply everything from tables, chairs, cutlery and crockery to service and bar staff. Get married in the beautiful white wedding chapel. The chapel can seat 100 of your family and friends. The chapel has no electricity but you will be amazed by its natural acoustics. Or get married under towering blue gum trees, rays of sunlight pouring down and birds chirping away. This is the perfect space to get in touch with nature. This breathtakingly ‘open-air-church’ with never-ending tree trunks will truly be magical and memorable.
Our perfect team of a qualified chef and lifetime farm cook will blow you and your guests away with ‘real food’ and amazing recipes. Even though we specialize in old-school ‘boerekos’ we are definitely not limited to this type of cooking and will gladly satisfy your weird taste buds. Our cash bar is up-and-running up to 2am, serving a good variety of beers, ciders and liquor.
What sets us apart from the rest is our professional yet very personal service and support. We strive to put our couples and their guests first and foremost, to ensure your day is stress and worry-free. Our dedicated team is always willing to go that extra mile to ensure your wedding day is one that dreams are made.
De Oudekraal was definitely the venue of our dreams. From the start the team was kind and helpful and did not mind to answer our 1000 questions. The venue is beautiful and we had the time of our life! Couldn’t have asked for a better venue and team! Thank you De Oudekraal for making our wedding a great time for us and our guests. – Bernard en Zanelle De Jager
