Soetendal Estate offers a wide range of options for any client as all five venues can be booked individually or together, dependent on your event requirements.
Wow what an amazing venue, and also the people running the venue. My friend had her wedding at the venue now recently and it was the most spectacular wedding ever. Thank you Jennifer and Divan for your hospitality. We will definitely recommend this venue to all. – Nastassja Carstens
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.

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. Click here to see more.
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!!!

Diamant Estate is set against the dramatic backdrop of Paarl Mountain a mere 45 minutes from Cape Town. Gorgeous views extend from the front of the property; include an expanse of manicured lawns, vineyards and majestic Oak trees. You might even catch a glimmer of Table Mountain in the distance.
The Old Chapel is a small wine cellar dating from the 1700’s which has been tastefully transformed into an intimate chapel for wedding ceremonies. The Old Chapel can also be transformed into a cosy, more intimate space to hold your reception and dance party for boutique weddings.
The Lawn consists of breathtaking views, envision the sun setting over Table Mountain in the distance, old oak trees and vineyards that wrap around the area and mountains as far as the eye can see. This is an exquisite area for outside ceremonies, sundowners or even an outdoor reception. The Barn can be used in conjunction with the old chapel, as stylish glass doors separate the two spaces. The extra-large fireplace or air-conditioned facility makes this the ideal spot for a smaller event, both winter and summer.
The Main Venue is a beautifully renovated historic wine cellar that is the flagship of our function spaces. While the original Cape Dutch style was retained, the designers and architects artfully married tradition with contemporary fittings and finishes. Two large courtyards with cozy fireplaces and stylish lounge pockets, as well as a beautiful wooden and granite Bar facility complement the Main Venue. We offer a variety of packages and options at different venues on the estate. From a small, intimate wedding in The Old Chapel or The Barn, an outside ceremony and reception on the lawn, to a large celebration in the Main Venue. There is a space for each memorable moment of your special day.
What a beautiful wedding venue. I found the staff to be well trained and very professional at all times. The wedding coordinator was on top of everything at all times and was available to assist wherever necessary. – Andre

Ons het my verjaarsdag die naweek by Eenzaamheid gehou. Dit is ‘n lieflike venue wat die kinders en grootmense ewe veel geniet het! Yolanda het absoluut alles gedoen en gereël – ek moes net opdaag. Sy het soveel moeite gemaak en die fyner detail het dit regtig spesiaal gemaak. Die kinders het hulself moeg gespeel op die plaas en daar was ‘n paar trane toe dit huis toe gaan tyd raak! Ek sal Yolanda en haar venue 100% aanbeveel vir enige funksie! – Anlin du Bois
