Heaven and Earth Country Escape
Bona Dea Private Estate hailed as one of the most romantic and dramatic locations in Southern Africa, is a unique wedding venue situated high on the mountain slopes in the breath-taking Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Bona Dea is nestled amongst the wine estates behind the seaside town of Hermanus, an easy 90 minutes from Cape Town International Airport.
The Dendrobium Venue Complex features a stylish Ballroom which is suitable for up to 200 guests, with a generous dance floor. Light airy reception rooms and lounges lead to raised terraces with steps down to a large ceremonial treed terrace adorned with 20,000 fairy lights, perfect for your fairy-tale ceremony.
Others features include an adjacent cocktail bar lounge, two lounges with large fireplaces for those cooler seasons, modern crisp white restroom facilities and a fully equipped commercial kitchen. While many ceremonies are held on the terrace, there is an indoor chapel available on the lower ground level. Also, ample secure parking and a generator is available on site.
Bona Dea’s talented events team would be delighted to receive you and your entourage at the Estate for a guided tour, while familiarising themselves with your wedding ideas and requirements. The Estate offers a wide range of event-critical services on site, such as furniture and décor hire to make your event spectacular in every way. Bona Dea Private Estate is a ‘must see’ venue that was awarded Best Reception Venue in 2015 and Best Wedding View in 2017 at the TopVendor Wedding Awards.
