We feel very blessed to have been lucky enough to have our wedding at the beautiful Bakenhof Winelands Venue. The venue was perfect for our special day and thanks to Nicola and her great team, everything ran so smoothly on the day. Also, thanks to Bakenhof's existing relationships with many of the suppliers, we were able to use people who knew the venue and had worked with the Bakenhof team before, which made all the planning so much easier! Thank you to Bakenhof and all it's staff for ensuring that our wedding day was perfect and so memorable. We wish we could do it all over again! With love, Amber & Nick

Stunning venue!

I would like to thank you and your team for your professionalism and it was always a pleasure to deal with you.

I cannot begin to tell you how many messages we have received about the wedding on Saturday and everyone has made mention of Bakenhof and what a stunning venue it is. I think that we managed to pull off the WOW factor in many ways! We of course did have a weather advantage of being able to open up the doors and as for that sunset …….. it was magnificent.
Between you and Jade the day was made completely stress free and we cannot thank you enough for that.

Many thanks once again and please pass our best wishes on to the entire team.

Everything we wanted in a venue in one place.

From service, to the beautiful views and the sanctuary of the special rose garden Bakenhof captured everything we wanted in a venue in one place. With so many different spaces it offers you a place to create your own unique wedding, while feeling that Nicola and her team have complete control on the day.

Hugely appreciated.

I need to tell you how impressed I, together with many, am at the professionalism, calmness & warmth in the way you performed all the rituals that needed to be carried out on the special day for Dayle & Paul. All the advise & help did not go unnoticed & is hugely appreciated.

Warm regards

Wow...I have no words to describe how thankful Vernon and I are for the excellent service you and your team provided. All of our guests without exception were very impressed and only have good things to say of you and your team. Our wedding day was sheer perfection - from start to finish. One of our guests I think best described it as "a glimpse of heaven". Thanks for all your efforts into making our wedding day the best day of our lives. It was just so special and we will treasure it always - memorable, elegant perfect. A special thanks to the bartenders, waiters/waitresses, and the lady that came to clear up our room on Saturday morning. Also to Monique for checking in on me and my girls throughout the day on Saturday to make sure we were happy and sorted. We could not have asked for any better. We are so grateful for the excellent service we received from start to finish. Thanks so much for everything, we are still on a "wedding high".

Nr 1 op my lysie!

Beste dag van ons lewe! Dit sou nie moontlik gewees het sonder Bakenhof se besonderse beplanning en organisering nie. Werklik soos die belangrikste mense in die wereld gevoel. So proffesioneel en besonderse diens. Nr 1 op my lysie as enige iemand die beste venue soek!!

Beautiful venue with such professional service.

Firstly we would like to thank you for an amazing day. We could not have picked a more beautiful venue with such professional service than what we did. You and your staff were absolutely amazing and your service was over and above what was expected.

You definitely contributed to making our day all that and so much more. We are very sad that it went by so quickly and that its all over now but holding thumbs that maybe we can return for another wedding one day:)
Thanks again for everything it was really the best choice to have made when we picked Bakenhof as our venue:)

Nothing short of perfection!

Bakenhof was a dream location since the day we stumbled upon it, something that seemed unattainable simply because of its immense beauty. Little did we know that a mere 7 months after our engagement we would have the most beautiful wedding that we’ve ever been to (if we do say so ourselves), at our dream venue. The service we were provided with proved to be nothing short of perfection, Nicola and the team were amazing during the months leading up to the wedding, but even more so on the day of the wedding. We could not have asked for a more organised, together and helpful team of coordinators for our big day. The venue was spotless, as though ours was the first wedding ever to be hosted at Bakenhof. our guests were in awe of the beauty of the glass structure, the ambiance it radiated and the service each individual was offered. The waiters and barmen were simply amazing, so on point and highly professional. Not a single guest left our wedding without saying how we managed to out-do ourselves and what a fun day it was, when in actual fact we could not have pulled it off without Nicola and the team. Bakenhof made our wildest dreams come true and we will forever be thankful and have fond memories of our wedding day. We will, without a doubt, refer Bakenhof as a wedding venue. Thank you for making our day one that we will always cherish and one that will be hard to top for those who follow! We wish Bakenhof all the success that life has to offer, keep up the amazing work!

Perfect Wedding Day

We fell in love with Bakenhof while driving up to the venue and the minute we set foot inside the venue we knew this was it, we didn't even look at any other venues our hearts were set on sharing our special day with our guests at this beautiful place...

The service was amazing, the staff were great, friendly and helpful every step of the way and on our day Nicola was there to assist our wedding planner and honestly our day couldn't have been more perfect. As a Bride I had no worries not for a minute, my day was filled with love and laughter and thanks to the Bakenhof team other involved the only moment of stress I had was putting one foot in front of the other when walking down the Isle... THANK YOU for making our Wedding Day Perfect... I wish I could do it all again!

Great ideas added a wow-factor!

Nicola and her team at Bakenhof were amazing. They came up with so many great ideas that added a wow-factor to the impressive venue while still letting us enjoy the spectacular views. She made sure to stay in contact on a regular basis from the time we booked which made the planning for the event easy and efficient, and the day of the wedding everything went smoothly, without us having to worry about a thing!

An unforgettable experience!

We were blessed to have an absolutely awesome wedding and couldn't have chosen a more beautiful venue to celebrate our love for each other in the presence of our loving family and friends. Thank you to Bakenhof and all our vendors for making it an unforgettable experience we loved every minute 🙂

Best choice in venue

“Having our wedding at Bakenhof was the best choice in venue we could have made. The modern setting with the back drop of the flourishing vineyards and sprawling Franschhoek mountains made our wedding all the more romantic and beautiful. The staff were tentative to all our needs and ensured that on the day of our wedding we could be completely relaxed in knowing that everything would (and did) run smoothly. The staff went out of their way to make sure our special requests were met. The accommodation was neat and everything functioned well giving us great photo opportunities and peace of mind of being able to stay over at the venue rather than having to make other arrangements.”

Ons kon nie vir beter gevra het nie.

Baie dankie vir jou puik hantering van ons kinders, Di-anne en Jaco, se troue.Die venue was fantasties. Alles het foutloos verloop.Die gaste kan nie uitgepraat raak oor die lieflike troue , venue en organisasie nie.Baie dankie dat jy en jou personeel dié dag, ‘n dag van vreugde vir ons kinders, familie en vriende gemaak het.Baie dankie vir jou profesionele en puik hantering van die funksie.Ons kon nie vir beter gevra het nie, dit was ‘n onvergeetlike dag vir ons almal.

Nicola and Kim-Lee as well as the other staff members were on point throughout our wedding. They offered exceptional service.
