Ideal for the non traditional couple, those who wish to focus on fun rather than fuss, those getting married again and those who love to travel.

Even if it is just the two of you allow us to handle every aspect of your celebration - from paperwork, legalities, flowers, decorations, cake, photos, food, venue and honeymoon night to having your nails, hair and make-up done in the comfort of your own suite. All you have to do is arrive and indulge!
The Boland is famous for its perfect weather. Where better to enjoy 11 hours of daily sunshine than outdoors. For a budget wise option select birdsong as background music and panoramic views as décor and choose the Daytime Romance Package, available throughout the year, courtesy of our annual average of 250 sunny days. Make the most of the abundant sunshine and deep blue skies during Spring and Summer (September – January), a great time to experience the life cycle of promising vineyards to harvest celebrations. Alternatively enjoy a relaxed function with idyllic weather in Autumn (mid February to May) and be overwhelmed by the transformation of the landscape into a myriad of colours.
For those who wish to dance the night away and enjoy luxurious honeymoon night accommodation a choice between the competitively priced Vineyard Village Package and the value for money and totally exclusive Weekend Wedding Package is available. Get the absolute most out of your once-in-a-lifetime celebration and opt for a wedding that lasts an entire weekend – and take your time to thoroughly enjoy it!
Bakenhof Bridal Packages feature the luxury to prepare and dress in lavish surroundings, a private setting for stunning pre-wedding photos, serene accommodation for the bridal party on the pre-wedding night and a romantic honeymoon suite to celebrate special new beginnings.
As important as all the pre-wedding arrangements, the night before your special day and the preparations on the day of your wedding need extra attention. Being in a luxurious and serene environment will contribute to your well-being and put you in a positive and right frame of mind to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Spoil yourself and spend your pre-wedding night with those people with whom you can kick off your shoes and relax. Awake the morning you say “I do” with birdsong and dress and prepare for the event in-style. Invite your hairdresser and make-up artist to an appropriate space to make you look the perfect picture and choose the luxurious areas, panoramic views and lush gardens of Bakenhof as backdrop to your pre-wedding photos.
Then comes your first night as husband and wife – not all honeymoon suites are made equally – choose Bakenhof because you deserve the best on your wedding night!
