Celebrate your unity at a fairytale garden sanctuary in the heart of Constantia Valley. The team at the Celars-Hohenort is so passionate and involved. we where lucky enough to get a beautiful tour of the 9.5 acres and enjoyed a scrumptious high tea at the Conservatory, they have an elevated comfort food, with sophistication and finesse.
The variety that they can offer is incredible. They have 5 different wedding areas that would suit any thing you have dreamed about.
Palm Arch: "Arches and weddings seem to go together very well, and with good reason. They give each wedding a distinct character and a focal point. Choosing how you decorate your arch is another opportunity to put a stamp on your wedding. At the Cellars-Hohenort you can say your vows under the Palm Arch. It’s a unique and photogenic space for an outdoor ceremony: surrounded by lush green foliage and hidden by ancient trees, yet still offering beautiful mountain views.
Conveniently, the Hohenort building is adjacent, which makes for an easy flow from ceremony to canapés and Champagne."
The Great Hall: "For a sophisticated indoor venue, the Great Hall in heart of the Hohenort building has recently been refurbished for a more modern, elegant look. There’s easy access to the wraparound balcony, as well as the inviting Greenhouse Bar for canapés and champagne."
The Conservatory Restaurant: "Offering unparalleled garden vistas, your guests will feel as if they’re floating above the trees. The restaurant is built around a giant 300-year-old oak tree, offering a setting that is both whimsical and elegant. We can also arrange to have your ceremony or reception here in the airy indoors, or on the sun-drenched terrace. This area can accommodate a maximum of 80 guests without a dancefloor, or 60 with a dancefloor."
Garden Reception / Hohenort Lawn: "Garden weddings are a dream, and we can help you plan yours in our gardens. This spacious piece of land provides an incredibly picturesque venue, with views that include the Hohenort pool and the vineyards beyond. Ideal for larger weddings of 70 to 120 guests, a marquee or Bedouin tent will be erected on the Hohenort lawn to accommodate all your guests."
Greenhouse: "Food is one of the most important aspects of any wedding. This flagship, award-winning restaurant of The Collection by Liz McGrath has been reimagined, and your guests will be in for a culinary treat. Picture warm, dark wood mixed with the soft tones of charcoal and honey, and punctuated with eclectic, contemporary art to create an uncluttered environment. It’s at once an elegant yet cutting-edge space to host the wedding reception of any foodie’s dreams."
