Franschhoek Wine Valley

Rickety Bridge Weddings

Rickety Bridge Wine Estate is the perfect winelands wedding venue. Overlooking the beauty of the Franschhoek Valley and nestled against the mountain is a magnificent setting for the exquisite Banqueting Hall where up to 85 guests can dine in comfort and style. We have a “chapel” room adjacent to the banqueting hall which has been especially prepared to accommodate ceremonies for up to 85 guests.

The Bride and Groom may also choose to have the ceremony performed in a gazebo on the lawns of the historic manor house. An outdoor wedding becomes a grand alfresco affair in our beautiful garden and offers the option of catering for a much larger number of guests. The views across the vineyards against backdrop of mountains lend an air of splendour to the occasion.

The historical Manor House offers superb accommodation for you and your guests and our newly launch Rickety Bridge ”Restaurant in the Vines” offer a picturesque surrounding for an intimate pre-wedding dinner or breakfast the morning after for your wedding party.

Rickety Bridge Wine Estate truly is truly is one of the most lovely boutique wineries in South Africa . The peace and tranquility of these lush surroundings holds an irresistible appeal for couples looking for a unique and beautiful experience.

Personal service and attention to detail comes as standard. Leaving will be your only disappointment…
