Spoils of delicious food, wine, music and of course, love 

They say home is where the heart is. So choosing the Black Oystercatcher venue for their wedding was the perfect option for Abigial and Tyren – who both come from the nearby town of Elim. According to Abigail, this is quite simply “the most beautiful venue for any occasion”.

The wonderful Engel couple brought their own fantastic flair to the reception. They said ‘I do’ in February of 2022, during a stunning summer’s day in the Overberg countryside. And they ensured that their guests were spoiled with delicious food and wine, brilliant music and an amazing atmosphere.

Abigail also worked closely with the Black Oystercatcher team throughout the planning process. In her own words: Jeanette and Sandra “were always just a phone call or message away and had the best ideas when we “didn’t know” what we wanted.”

Thank you for choosing our venue, Abigail and Tyren. It was an absolute joy to host your most special day!

The Black Oystercatcher is one of the prettiest venues that we looked at and marrying here was definitely the best choice we could make.

Our Wedding Venue

The wedding venue with a difference

We added a new venue to our centuries-old farmstead in 2016. It’s a venue that merges perfectly with the rich Overberg country: 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. Find out more.
