Weddings

Babylonstoren is an authentic, versatile venue with one of the country’s best preserved Cape Dutch farmyards, offering a historic yet contemporary farm stay. The ever-changing tapestry and rich bounty of the gardens at Babylonstoren inform everything – from the facilities and activities on offer to the themes of our functions, which range from weddings to private celebrations.

Ceremony

Typically, our wedding ceremonies take place outdoors, weather permitting. Opt for a classic set-up under the majestic oaks by the stream (included in the venue fee). Or go for something more mysterious such as the House of Shadows at the bottom of the garden (available for R10 000).

food

Fresh, seasonal produce – fruit, vegetables, herbs and edible flowers – forms the heart of any dish. Our culinary style leans towards simplicity. Expect spontaneous yet creatively styled platters from which your selection can be served onto your own plate.

Red, green and yellow salads are served with freshly farm-baked bread and herb oil. This is followed by a main course of grilled fish plus a choice of leg of lamb or pork belly, accompanied by delicious vegetables and herbed potatoes from our garden.

Both courses are served on generous large platters that are set down at intervals on the tables so that guests can help themselves.

The magnificent dessert station is kept secret and only revealed to your guests as a surprise later in the evening. Alternatively, you can keep things simple by opting for the traditional plated dessert.

Babylonstoren is fully licensed and can supply all beverages, from homemade cordials, iced teas and homemade ginger beer to our Babylonstoren wines, as well as our sparkling wine Sprankel MCC. Beverage costs are in addition to the family meal and dessert rate.

Included in your wedding package

Two nights’ accommodation in Koornhuis, our two-bedroom cottage, conveniently located next to the White Studio.
