Earlier this month SA Weddings was pleasurably privileged to pay boutique wine estate, Webersburg, a visit. Situated on the sunny slopes of the Helderberg Mountain between Stellenbosch and Somerset West, this picturesque wedding venue recently enjoyed an array of exquisite upgrades. We indulged in an elegant evening of opulence and grandeur, with fine dining and luxurious accommodation amongst a consortium of elite guests. Today we reflect on our experience and feature the various facilities this family owned farm offers our beautiful brides-to-be.
The extensive Webersburg grounds cater beautifully to both indoor and outdoor wedding celebrations. They have a variety of venue options available to cater for the style and size of your specific event - whether it be a large, lavish affair or a smaller, more intimate function.
The state of the art ceremony venue opens up onto majestic views of the mountains, forming the most picturesque backdrop. The ambient cellar dining room with candelabras and moss-kissed walls, is dressed with authentic 18th century relics and a king size table that set the scene for the dining soiree. Overall, the historic site and surrounding grounds, combined with award winning wines, mouth-watering cuisine and dedicated service will make your special day an unforgettable experience.
