My daughter and son-in-law had fallen in love with the area and picked Vrede en Lust as 'THE PLACE' to do the deed. With family coming from UK, Netherlands, Australia, Singapore and friends from 18 other countries it had to be good for all. IT WAS! Everyone loved the venue and the wedding coordination was well tried and tested. The day went without a visual hitch and the evening celebrations, all day catering and entertainment were well received by all.
As guests we felt very well looked after and the facilities and rooms for the bride, groom and family guests are excellent - you actually feel as though you almost own the place as you walk through the beautiful room and grounds. Photo options and settings are phenomenal. Breakfast in the restaurant was a delight and all the staff know how to look after you formally and discreetly. Nothing was too much trouble (including printing out the speeches). We will return by ourselves very soon as we have also fallen in love with the area, the people and their culture.

Room Tip: With so much accommodation in the area the wedding guest overflow can be accommodation in excellent accommodation within a 20 minute drive. Buses & taxis can bring them to and from the wedding.

We got married at Vrede en Lust in October 2011 and our wedding was beyond our wildest dreams. Vrede en Lust lives up to the meaning of its name when it comes to weddings.

We were looking for a traditional, historic wine estate that also offered accommodation. Well we chose Vrede en Lust because it fitted the bill exactly!

Our family and guests were completely in awe of the beauty. From the amazing old manor house and beautiful cottages, the wonderful scenary, the vineyards, the wonderful cockails and canape's that Duncan and his team prepared, the beautiful music and the absolutely fantastic organisation of the team made our day perfect.

Nothing was too much for the VNL co-ordinators and their teams and they worked tirelessly to make everything perfect not only on our big day but for our entire stay at VNL.

Wiena and the team also assisted putting together a wonderful dinner party on the night before our wedding and her endless energy and hospitality is unforgettable.

Duncan and his team provided fantastic meals for our guests and the catering at our wedding was truly amazing.

So a huge thank you to Yolanda, Wiena, Duncan and the entire VNL team, all our amazing suppliers and co-ordinatroes - you made our wedding day!

I had my wedding "feast at Vrede en Lust... There are no words to explain the level of service that you get, the friendly staff and warm hospitality!

Nothing was to big or to small to ask.
I remeber the day before the wedding I was in the mood for a salad with avo and feta. The restaurant on site did not have any in stock so the head function coordinater drove to buy me seem...without me having to ask.
The attention to detail is out of this world!

I can recommend this lovely place for anything from a relaxing get-away to a wonderfully amazing wedding venue!

A must for anyone looking to be pamperd @ an affordable price!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous
