Extend the celebration of your special day from one day to a whole weekend spend with family and friends in a relaxed, country style atmosphere with nature on your doorstep.
Historical stone Church
The Church on Louvain was built in 1852 as a mission outpost and was a shared project of the farm’s then owner Bertie Richardson and the first Anglican Bishop of Cape Town, Bishop Robert Gray. The plans for the Church was provided by Sophie Gray, the Bishop’s wife, and was consecrated in 1855 by Bishop Gray as “St John the Baptist in the Wilderness”.
The Church today is still being used for regular sevices and with its old worldly feel and warm atmosphere is ideal for a romantic country wedding. It can accommodate up to 120 people seated.
The Apple Shed
This unique, beautifully restored venue was originally built and and used for the sorting and packing of apples.
Since 2000 when the first wedding reception was held in the shed, it has also become a popular venue for corporate events, family reunions and other informal functions. The shed has its own kitchen, bar, dining area and dancefloor with an outside braai and very big swimming pool. For wedding receptions the shed can accommodate up to 140 guests.
