We married here on 3rd January 2013 and had the most beautiful and incredible time. Everything we wanted in our wedding was achieved. We hired the whole estate for two nights and it genuinely was perfect. All our guests who stayed here complimented the venue and the accommodation.
Some of the rooms are out of this world and the Cape Dutch style really makes the whole place feel incredibly special.
Together with our guests we lounged around the pool, had a braai under the trees and just enjoyed the grounds.
I even got a peak at 3 of the 4 nesting owls - who wisely watched us in our preparations.
The breakfasts were brilliant and the way the staff did everything to assist was just wonderful.
The beautiful surroundings, the helpful staff, the delicious food and the divine wine! Everything worked so well and we could not have been happier with our choice.
Jowine was invaluable and was so helpful in sorting out a few of the inevitable teething problems (nothing to do with Palmiet) that comes with organising such a big and important event.
The only issue we had was that we stayed in the Presidential suite (I cannot begin to even exaggerate just how big it was) and my wife felt that it was not that equipped when it came to her getting ready. There was no full length mirror and the room was rather dark. So it wasn't quite perfect in that respect. However it didn't really detract from her preparation and we have some very lovely photos of her getting ready by the big bathroom window.
If you want an intimate, special South African wedding come here.
