Who said that hot, pleasant days are of the essence for weddings? There is so much more to the cooler months than we think, not least because of the special offers you can score both at wedding venues and the places at which you choose to honeymoon. And to top it all, instead of having to wait a year for your dream venue to be available in the peak summer wedding months, you could book a winter date and probably get it much sooner. This kind of flexibility is a huge advantage as it allows you to pick your perfect date. There are no worries about your cake melting or your flowers wilting in cooler weather. Everything will stay crisper and fresher for longer – including you and the groom!
Think of the unconventional ideas and themes with which you can have fun with – eggnog at the reception, a herbal tea station, vases filled with winter flowers, shawls and blankets tossed over guests’ chairs, rustic coloured carpets on the dining room floor, roaring log fires – the list of winter wonders is inexhaustible!
There is nothing more elegant than an intimate Cape country wedding, and Bona Dea Private Estate offers just the place to bring your dream countryside nuptials to life. Say your vows in the cosy indoor chapel, which boasts a blank canvas for you to add some old-world charm or modern simplicity. Then celebrate your newlywed status in the lounge with Cape heritage accents, modern and simplistic décor, and the warmth of inviting fireplaces, flickering and snapping in the background, before leading your guests into the magical Ballroom with its glittering fairy light ceiling.
Bona Dea Private Estate is a “must see” venue and was awarded Best Wedding View at the 2017 TopVendor Wedding Awards.
Bona Dea has a sophisticated and talented team capable of organising and co-ordinating your event or wedding in the lavish Ballroom and Venue Complex. Their team would be delighted to receive you and your entourage at the Estate for a cup of tea and a guided tour, yet most importantly, to familiarise themselves with your wedding ideas and exact requirements.
