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 help!

Wedding Information Pack:
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
When you book our wedding venue during a weekend, we usually require guests to book accommodation for a minimum of 2 evenings. However, three of our accommodation units, available in Rondekuil’s Country Lodge, can sleep up to six guests and 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 us.
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 menu options by clicking on Menu Selection. It is also possible to arrange alternative choices in consultation with Rondekuil’s management team and the caterer.
During your reception, a cash bar will be available in one corner of the venue and we will arrange for one or two friendly barmen to help with the pouring of drinks. 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.
When planning your wedding with us, all details of the wedding arrangements will be communicated during our wedding discussions. This way, we can make sure that the event is planned thoroughly, allowing you to have peace of mind so that you, your family, and friends can enjoy the celebrations.
