Welcome to Hudson’s
Hudson’s is soon looking forward to celebrating ten years as a wedding venue in the beautiful Winelands of the Western Cape. During that time we are proud to say that we have developed as leaders and innovators in our industry, as we have sought to create a comfortable, relaxing and visually beautiful atmosphere in which to celebrate one of the most important days in life’s journey. Every year we have added new and exciting features at Hudson’s, bearing in mind that our brides have a vision of their chosen venue on this special day – it must be as beautiful as they are. The result, we believe, is magical. Two delightful venues, each unique in character, providing a glamorous backdrop for a fairytale occasion.
Our Gardens – Wedding Ceremonies
The wonderful backdrop of mountains and gardens, coupled with our South African sunshine, provide a tranquil setting for an outdoor wedding ceremony. Our picturesque dam, or fountains and rose arches, necessitate little as decoration. Rarely needed, but always available, is an indoor area should it be needed in case of inclement weather. Pre-drinks and canapés may be served on our rolling lawns, with ample space for games or other entertainment.
The Hall Venue – 50 to 120 guests
Our journey began with this firm favourite. It now boasts a large, glittering ball of Egyptian crystal, flanked by four more chandeliers and a generous amount of fairly lights that glitter in the ceiling to resemble stars. Shadow lighting can be used to frame the crystals and wash the walls in various colours.
Another feature is mosaic pillars, also lit, and a wood effect floor perfect for dancing. Adjacent is our antique bar, which originally served as the ticket counter at Cape Town railway station. The hall venue is appointed with fabulous frameless glass doors which open onto magnificent mountain views and our beautiful floral garden and dam.
The Loft Venue – 100 to 300 guests
Situated on the first floor and accessed by two wide, easy-rise staircases or an elevator, this huge area was renovated some two years ago. It provides a magical space, with cathedral bamboo lined ceilings, featuring our signature glittering crystal chandeliers and candle lanterns. It is ideally suited for between 100 and 300 guests, and offers ample space for dancing with a DJ or band. Here too, is a contemporary styled, hand-crafted slate and oak bar, flanked by comfortable lounge area for guests to relax. Magnificent views can be enjoyed through folding glass doors that open onto a large balcony with seating for guests. Each venue is serviced by its own state of the art kitchen and guest bathroom facilities.
Hudson’s closes to the public at 4.30pm each day and thereafter the entire venue, including the bar, inside area and gardens, is exclusively for the use of you and your guests. Breakfast or early afternoon weddings are also available. For your peace of mind, please note that we do not undertake two weddings simultaneously.
