Weddings at Rondekuil Venues, Durbanville
Durbanville wedding venues that will fit your style and budget!
Dear Bride & Groom
Firstly, we want to thank you for considering celebrating your special day with us at Rondekuil. We aim to be one of the best Durbanville wedding venues and therefore want to make sure that your day is all you wish for, and more!
Rondekuil lies in the beautiful countryside just outside Durbanville, only a 10 minutes’ drive, and is only 35 minutes from Cape Town’s CBD. We understand that a wedding takes endless planning and that staying within budget is non-negotiable, which is why we are one of the more affordable wedding venues in Durbanville.
The wedding information pack should contain all the information you need for planning your big day, but, if you have any questions, we are happy to help!

Wedding Reception Area
The venue can comfortably accommodate 150 guests while leaving ample floor space for dancing. We will position the tables in accordance with our client’s requirements – we have a long table for the bridal group and several round tables, seating 6 to 10 guests per table.
For a small wedding, we can provide a set of attractive screens that can be used to section off the venue’s floor space.
If required, the wedding ceremony can be held in the venue (on the dance floor), or the ceremony can be held on the beautiful lawns below the venue, either in a tent, marque, or gazebo or in the open air. When making use of a tent, it is the client’s own responsibility to hire and have it erected.
Accommodation for Wedding Guests
Should you or your guests require accommodation during a weekend, then we usually require guests to book accommodation for a minimum of 2 evenings. However, three of our accommodation units, available in our Country Lodge, which can sleep up to six guests, are available to wedding guests for one night’s stay. Additional accommodation is available at nearby guesthouses in Durbanville, which are at most a 10 to 12 minutes’ drive from Rondekuil Estates.
Food can be served plated or buffet-style from two large granite tables which we set up to the side of the venue, closest to the kitchen.
Feel free to view our menus below. It is also possible to arrange alternative choices in consultation with Rondekuil Estates’ management team.
During your reception, a cash bar is available, and we provide one or two friendly barmen. If clients want to run a bar tab through the night, we require a cash deposit to cover the cost of drinks ordered by your guests or, alternatively, payment can be made using a credit or debit card, by arrangement with the Venue Manager.
Rondekuil Estates’ highly experienced Venue Manageress will assist you with planning your wedding day and will advise you regarding who to contact for any outside services you may require. Our aim is to make sure that your wedding is planned thoroughly, in order to make the lead-up to your wedding day as stress-free as possible and to ensure that you, your family, and friends can enjoy the wedding celebrations to the full.
