Franschhoek Wine Valley

Rickety Bridge Weddings

Cross the bridge over the Franschhoek River and discover the perfect Winelands wedding venue among the vines, perched on the slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains with sweeping views of the valley. The charming 19th century Cape Dutch setting offers a range of enchanting onsite ceremony and reception options.

Host your wedding in a Cape Dutch banqueting hall, converted from centuries-old wine barrel maturation cellar or be one with nature and get married on the Manor House lawn with endless views of the vineyard. Set up a white marquee on the Manor House lawn and celebrate the night under the stars or dance the night away on the banqueting hall terrace.

Opt for Rickety Bridge’s all-inclusive package to take the stress out of planning your big day. The package includes wedding venue hire, a three-course menu, wines made on the estate and accommodation at the Manor House and the neighboring Basse Provence Country House. There is room for 22 guests in total.

Rickety Bridge also offers a personalized and accessible wedding coordination service. Zara Bradshaw, the Functions Manager at Rickety Bridge, will assist you throughout your entire wedding from planning every single detail to coordinating the flow of events on the day.
