Why should you consider booking the Black Oystercatcher Wedding Venue?
We know and understand how to celebrate true love and the beginnings of a new and exciting journey – as partners. Like our Black Oystercatcher birds who pair for life, we also believe in partnership, cooperation and trust. We look forward to showcasing these to you, as we together create a truly unforgettable day for you.
Here at the Black Oystercatcher, we make sure the weddings we host are unique, intimate and stress-free. Quite simply, in the Human-family tradition, it’s a day to always remember, appreciating wonderful friends, close family and, of course, future partners.
You need only enjoy the most important day of your life without concern. This Bredasdorp wedding venue offers charm, lots of heart, and a comfortable atmosphere for any event.
Don’t forget our views
The venue fills out onto a large veranda – overlooking our infinity pool, and beyond that, the country landscapes of the Overberg. Our venue can accommodate more than 200 people (although we can maintain our intimate setting for smaller groups). With our large gazebo in front of our venue, we can host up to 400 people at a wedding reception.
Our Black Oystercatcher wedding team will put together an exclusive and unforgettable wedding ceremony and reception amongst the southern-most vineyards on the African continent. Alternatively, the historic church in the middle of the picturesque missionary town of Elim, just down the road from the venue, could host the wedding service.
We’ve got your wedding photos covered
Have your wedding photos taken in the culturally-rich Elim, among the Black Oystercatcher’s vineyards, or at the Black Oystercatcher’s stone houses that date back to the 1700s.
Or travel 5km down the road to have your wedding pictures taken at a pristine and untouched lake called Waagschaalvlei. Then after the wedding ceremony, relax and enjoy your reception at the Black Oystercatcher venue.
Our friendly staff will assist in your planning, to ensure your wedding day is exactly what you dreamed of. And we will take care of all the proceedings at the ceremony. We give special attention to detail and no aspect is overlooked.
Time to dance
The wedding venue has a dance floor and the décor can be arranged to suit your needs. We have accommodation available on the farm (4 self-catering cottages). And further accommodation is available on neighbouring farms, or in the nearby towns of Elim, Bredasdorp, Struisbaai, Agulhas and Gansbaai.
