About Hudson's

Vredenheim Wine Estate, R310 Baden Powell Drive, Stellenbosch
Cape Winelands, 7600

Welcome to Hudson’s


Hudson’s is soon looking forward to celebrating twelve years as a wedding venue in the beautiful Winelands of the Western Cape. During that time we are proud to say that we have developed as leaders and innovators in our industry, as we have sought to create a comfortable, relaxing and visually beautiful atmosphere in which to celebrate one of the most important days in life’s journey.


Every year we have added new and exciting features at Hudson’s, bearing in mind that our brides have a vision of their chosen venue on this special day – it must be as beautiful as they are. The result, we believe, is magical. Two delightful venues, each unique in character, providing a glamorous backdrop for a fairytale occasion.



Our Gardens – Wedding Ceremonies


The wonderful backdrop of mountains and gardens, coupled with our South African sunshine, provide a tranquil setting for an outdoor wedding ceremony. Our picturesque dam, or fountains and rose arches, necessitate little as decoration. Rarely needed, but always available, is an indoor area should it be needed in case of inclement weather. Pre-drinks and canapés may be served on our rolling lawns, with ample space for games or other entertainment.



The Hall Venue – 50 to 120 guests


Our journey began with this firm favourite. It now boasts a large, glittering ball of Egyptian crystal, flanked by four more chandeliers and a generous amount of fairy lights that glitter in the ceiling to resemble stars. Shadow lighting can be used to frame the crystals and wash the walls in various colours. Another feature is mosaic pillars, also lit, and a wood effect floor perfect for dancing. Adjacent is our antique bar, which originally served as the ticket counter at Cape Town railway station. The hall venue is appointed with fabulous frameless glass doors which open onto magnificent mountain views and our beautiful floral garden and dam.



The Loft Venue – 80 to 300 guests


Situated on the first floor and accessed by two wide, easy-rise staircases or an elevator, this huge area was created some four years ago. It provides a magical space, with cathedral bamboo lined ceilings, featuring our signature glittering crystal chandeliers and candle lanterns. It is ideally suited for between 100 and 300 guests, and              offers ample space for dancing with a DJ or band. Here too, is a contemporary styled, hand-crafted slate and oak bar, flanked by comfortable lounge areas for guests to relax. Magnificent views can be enjoyed through folding glass doors that open onto a large balcony with seating for guests. Each venue is serviced by its own state of the art kitchen and guest bathroom facilities.


• Large immaculately landscaped garden with dam, floral displays & breathtaking views • Two award-winning unique exclusive venues accomodating from 50 to 300 guests • Dedicated in-house coordination, flowers & decor • Dedicated in-house catering

By Coral Humphreys, on 31 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Mar 2018

We had the most amazingly magical wedding day at Hudson’s on 15th March 2018. The venue is just stunning.. Rhiannon and all the staff are perfect in helping make your day one to remember, right down to all the fine details. For us living in the UK planning our wedding in SA was made so easy and stress free. We can’t thank you all enough and will definitely be paying Hudson’s a visit when next in SA. Love Mr and Mrs Humphreys

By Leandra Bester, on 31 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 25 May 2018

We had our wedding at Hudson's Vredenheim Estate on the 25th of May 2018. There were no word for how beautiful everything was. Rhiannon, her mom and the rest of their Hudson's team made our dream wedding come true. Everything was done to the T as we wanted it. The evening was a huge success and on every photo our guest were either eating, laughing and dancing. Everyone raved about the beauty of the venue, the amazing party and the magnificent food! It was absolutely the best day of our lives and Hudson's definitely helped making it even more memorable. Thanks to everyone from Hudson's. The perfect venue for any special occasion!

Wedding May 2017
Venue Service

By Charn, on 23 May 2017Date of Wedding - 05 May 2017

I wish I could give this place more than 5 stars! We chose Hudson's as our wedding venue in May 2017, and JUST WOW! While we initially fell in love with the spectacular garden and breathtaking interiors, we never actually anticipated how incredibly well-run, organised and accommodating this venue would be. Everyone always says that something will go wrong on your wedding day - well, not on ours! Yes, it rained on the day - yet the Hudson's team acted SO quickly and set up the most STUNNING indoor ceremony area (without needing any instructions), that I can't imagine having it any other way! The food was just incredible, the venue managers indulged our most detailed requests, the decor was EVERYTHING we could've hoped for, the wedding was 100% stress-free, and every single detail was absolutely perfect. Thank you for wildly exceeding our most divine expectations - you guys are the true definition of the word "LEGENDS".

We got married here on 24 April 2016 and I could not have asked or the day to be more perfect.Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special, perfect and effortless. The ceremony and reception hall looked absolutely amazing and everything was more perfect than I could ever have imagined. The garden was the most beautiful back drop for our ceremony and photo's. The cheese platters served under the trees were refreshing and the reception food was fantastically delicious, all the guests complimented the excellent quality and service. The reception hall was breathtakingly beautiful with all the candles, lights and flowers. With your teams skills and expertise my wedding day was absolutely perfect!

Thank you Rhiannon & Simone for making sure that everything was so special for them. From the food to decor - everything was stunning! Most beautiful venue. We will certainly recommend you highly.
