Rondekuil Wedding Venue - Information Pack:
Wedding Reception Area
The venue comfortably accommodates up to 150 guests, including floor space for dancing. The positioning of tables will be done to our client’s requirements. A long table is provided for the bridal group and round tables, seating up to 6 to 10 guests per table, are provided for the guests.
For smaller weddings, a set of attractive screens can be used to screen off a section of the venue floor space – this tends to make the remaining function space more intimate. Whether your wedding is large or small, our attention to detail remains the same for all our clients.

The wedding ceremony can be held in the venue (usually held on the dance floor) or on the lawns below the venue in the open-air, or in a tent, marque or gazebo, which are hired and need to be erected by our clients.
Accommodation for Wedding Guests
We offer comfortable accommodation at reasonable prices – see accommodation. If a wedding reception is booked at Rondekuil over a weekend, we normally require guests to book accommodation for 2 evenings. However, three accommodation units in Rondekuil’s Country Lodge, which is located next to the Rondekuil Venue, that can sleep up to six guests, are available to guests attending a wedding, for one-night stays over weekends. Additional suitable accommodation is available at guesthouses in Durbanville and surrounds, only a 10 minutes drive from Rondekuil.
Your wedding catering can be served plated, or buffet-style from two large granite tables at the side of the venue nearest to the kitchen.
The menu options can be viewed by clicking on: Menu Selection. Alternative menu choices can be arranged in consultation with Rondekuil Management and the Caterer.
A cash bar is conveniently located in one corner of the venue (next to the dance floor) and there are normally one or two helpful barmen in attendance. If a “tab” is run, a cash deposit is required to cover the cost of drinks ordered by guests.
Details of all wedding arrangements will be communicated during our wedding discussions, which will help ensure that the event is planned thoroughly so that that you will have peace of mind and you, your family and friends will enjoy your reception to the full.
