Marriages are made in heaven,
weddings are created on earth

Actually, they are made at Bona Dea Private Estate…

Our gorgeous venue was completed in 2015. Extra care was taken in the planning of the Dendrobium Venue Complex and, as a result, it functions as flawlessly as a bird in flight. Our magnificent terraces were designed for marvelling at the beautifully manicured gardens and the breathtaking natural landscape beyond.

The tailoring of the original Cape Dutch style farmhouse, to become the ultimate in private and exclusive event hosting, was completely worth the effort. The careful renovations resulted in elegant, yet, light and airy indoor and outdoor spaces.

Bona Dea Private Estate is hailed as one of the most romantic and dramatic locations in South Africa. And, if you take a moment to breathe in the beauty of the surrounding area, you’ll dream of your own Hermanus wedding. Come for a viewing… Our team would be delighted to receive you and your entourage at the Estate for a cup of tea and a guided tour.
