    The wedding venue with a difference

    We added the wedding venue to our centuries-old farmstead in 2016. It’s a venue that merges perfectly with the rich Overberg country no matter the season: glass doors and windows all around, connecting you to nature. Exposed brick walls, wooden beams, and a large veranda leading out to the infinity pool. And beyond that, the stretching Agulhas Plain countryside.

    How do you picture your wedding day?

    Perhaps showcasing botanical brilliance – uniting the venue and greenery around you. Or rather capturing country chic – elegant and simple. Or perhaps highlighting the golden moment that day transforms into night.

    This Bredasdorp wedding venue provides versatility – bringing your imagination to life, with any guidance you may need from our side.

    The Black Oystercatcher venue can accommodate more than 200 people (although we can maintain our intimate setting for smaller groups). With our large bedouin tent, the poolside venue can host up to 400 people at a wedding reception. 


    No detail is too small for our mother and daughter team

    We can work with the wedding couple, or the wedding coordinator. But our mother and daughter team, Sandra and Jeanette Human, can also help to coordinate your wedding, planning all the details, and specialising in wedding décor and flowers that speak to the elegance of your day. And don’t worry – with your inputs, the décor can be arranged to ensure a dance floor is in place, based on your needs.

    Wedding meals to warm the heart

    A delectable and luxurious meal helps to ensure a memorable wedding day. The Black Oystercatcher can help by working with you to provide the menu of your choice. Alternatively, catering can be done by any of Black Oystercatcher’s pre-approved caterers. Waiters and cleaning staff for the kitchen should then be provided by the caterer.

    And don’t forget our unique landscape: it makes for spectacular wedding photos.

    The Overberg country is always changing. As one season merges into the next, so the colours transform the world around us.

    Have your wedding photos taken in the culturally-rich Elim, among the Black Oystercatcher’s vineyards or cellar, or at the Black Oystercatcher’s stone houses that date back to the 1700s. Or travel into our natural area: have your wedding pictures taken at a pristine and untouched lake called Waagschaalvlei, or in the intense colours of our agricultural lands, with unending fields of golden canola or green grains, to dramatic blue skies and beautiful sunsets over the Agulhas Plain.

    So easy to stay over

    We have accommodation available on the farm (4 self-catering cottages) – ideal for the wedding couple and family. Accommodation is also available on neighbouring farms, or in the nearby towns of Elim, Bredasdorp, Struisbaai, Agulhas and Gansbaai.

    Check in with us for ideas for guest accommodation.


    Our friendly staff will assist in your planning, to ensure your wedding day is exactly what you dreamed of.

    Wedding Inspiration

    Wedding | Violah & Donald

    Wedding | Violah & Donald

    It was always going to be a Black Oystercatcher wedding – a celebration of love under the summer skies in our special corner of the Overberg.

    Sense of adventure and love for the outdoors

    This was a family affair, décor was done by the bride’s and groom’s families and friends in a rustic and comfortable manner. Their positive and warm energy paired perfectly in a classic Overberg country style wedding. View their wedding gallery here.
