Riebeek Valley
Top wedding service providers and suppliers from the beautiful Riebeek Valley in the Swartland, a little more than an hour’s drive from Cape Town, can now be conveniently accessed with a few clicks.
The area’s brand new web directory, www.theweddingvalley.co.za, offers a hassle-free gateway to all things wedding-related in this valley known for its fine vineyards, green hills punctuated with historic farm houses, sweeping wheat fields and olive groves - just the right backdrop for the celebration of love.   

The Riebeek Valley incorporates the towns of Riebeek West, Riebeek Kasteel, Riebeeksrivier and Hermon, and offers a substantial choice of wedding venues. The charming towns of Riebeek Kasteel and Riebeek West are only about 5km apart, with Hermon (12km) and Riebeeksrivier (8km), a short drive from Riebeek Kasteel.

The choice of wedding and reception venues offered range from impressive, purpose-built venues to charming, intimate places for smaller groups.  

On offer is the quaint forest chapel at Allesverloren, the oldest wine estate in the district.  The well-known farm, with its palate-pleasing wines, sprawling vineyards, breathtaking views and excellent cuisine also has a newly-renovated reception hall and offers a full wedding-planning service.

Alternatively, consider Bartholomeus Klip Deck House offering panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, its lake-sized farm dam and flourishing landscapes.  Het Vlock Casteel with its castle-like architecture, inspired by the Castle of Good Hope in Cape Town, has high ceilings and large wrought-iron chandeliers as well as an impressive old-style castle double doors that open out into the surrounding vineyards.

If you’re after delicious organic fare, Delsma farm would be a suitable choice as it has its own organic vegetable garden from which meals are prepared. It also offers accommodation, as does the historic Goedgedacht farm with its magnificent views and Cape-Dutch architecture.  

The Royal Hotel and The Travellers Rest, both located in Riebeek Kasteel, offer expansive garden settings and are located close to the local church.  

Accommodation in the Riebeek Valley is plentiful and there is a wide range to choose from - from hotels to guest houses, bed-and-breakfast establishments and a variety of self-catering options.  These are also featured on the web directory, as are service providers such as wedding planners and coordinators, dress designers, beauty and hair stylists, wedding photographers, floral artists, caterers, musicians and sound technicians.  

The valley’s wedding directory is also a great one-stop destination for visitors to the area. In addition to accommodation and wedding-related services, it features details of restaurants, fresh produce markets, wine estates and other attractions in the valley.
