About Gelukkie

Farm 31, Seemeeu Crescent
Pelgrimsrust, Paternoster
West Coast, 7381

Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life…why not spend it in one of the most special places on the West Coast!

Gelukkie offers a beautiful venue and set of wedding package options to make your day everything you could possibly dream of…and then some! Gelukkie caters for those couples looking for a different, exciting wedding unlike any other. The venue is intimate and has a rustic-chic style. Our weddings are aimed at a maximum of 70 guests at prices that wont leave you wishing you had eloped!

Gelukkie is a mere 2 minutes drive away from the main little fishing village of Paternoster allowing you and your guests privacy from the hustle and bustle of the main village while at the same time, giving you the coastal wedding experience you have always wished for. We have contracts with prestigious establishments allowing our bridal couples the privilege of being married on the beach and then returning to Gelukkie for their tranquil garden reception in our courtyard oasis. Should a beach wedding not quite be your style, feel free to have the ceremony in our gardens at no extra charge.

All catering, décor, flowers and wedding coordination can be done internally by our very talented family team so all you have to do is put on your bridal attire, sit back and enjoy every moment! Gelukkie also has two beautiful cottages which are included in the wedding packages. These cottages sleep 2 people each.

With over 50 years of event and wedding experience under this team's belt and a property which has been featured in countless interior and décor publications, you can rest assured that your day will be everything and more than what you ever dreamed. We also specialise in smaller weddings of up to 30 guests so contact us for our Small Weddings package which is designed around the budget conscious bridal couples.

Thank you is simply not enough! Cindy, Ruth and Andrew, you helped us create and realize our dream wedding on Saturday Your passion is so clearly evident and really sets you apart from other venues. Gelukkie is more than a just a venue, it's a little slice of perfection, run and managed by its owners. EVERYTHING was spot on! The food was a major talking point as was the special ambience Gelukkie oozes! We feel incredibly blessed and just want to say thank you again for such a truly magical day.

Dear Cindy, Ruth and Andrew, "Gelukkie" fitted us like a glove. To me it is coming home, perfect in every single way, object, personal touch. We arranged our wedding from the Netherlands and when we finally flew to SA we visited gelukkie the day after our arrival. We immediately knew we made the perfect choice for our special day. It is impossible to NOT fall in love with Gelukkie on the spot. And the flowers on our day..that really brought me to tears. You may have a decoration plan or not, you might as well leave it up to Ruth because she does magic with the flowers. It was absolutely stunning, beautiful and fantastic. I will post pictures once I get them from Duane, promiss. The table decoration,on the chimney, the flowers in the garden, the flowers at the 'ceremonial' tree it was really beautiful and thank you so much Ruth for making my day. Thank you chef for the great food that was absolutely delicious (and way to much for the dutchies:-)) beautifuly presented, especially the dessert. A big ooohhhh went through Joy when our guests saw that one coming!! I really enjoyed 'Klein Gelukkie' and 'Nog n Gelukkie'. Your eyes are entertained with so much of Andrews' great craftsmanship. 1 day and 2 nights are definetely way to short to visit Gelukkie and we will have to come back! Thanks Cindy for being a perfect host. You made us feel very welcome and relaxed. Michelle, thanks to you as well and good luck in the wedding business. I think you will do great job. Our love to the dogs which we all loved very much. Thanks guys for making our day as we hoped and wanted it to be, lots of love Karin, Rob, Senna, Alec and Bjorn xxxx

Had the most amazing weekend at Gelukkie over Easter weekend. It was the biggest occasion in my life and Gelukkie made it an absolutely stunning event. From all the help of setting up to the preparation of Ruth’s awesome meals. It was all perfect. Even the gustily winds that blessed us with their presence added to occasion. I just once again want to say thanks again to the team for making our day/weekend a memorable one. For that i will be forever grateful:-) Mwah
