Grand Dédale

The Estate is just outside Wellington in the heart of the Cape Winelands and a mere 50 minutes drive from Cape Town and the airport. Nestled in the valley below the Bainskloof Pass, the 380 hectares of mountains, vineyards, riverbeds, forests and fynbos are the perfect backdrop for a dream wedding and offer an abundance of possibilities for your wedding photography.

All functions are catered for by our resident chef, accompanied by Doolhof’s award-winning wines.

Grand Dédale offers elegant Country House living as well as the original Manor House from the 1700s, which has been stylishly restored and houses six luxury rooms. Our freestanding thatched stone cottage or “romantic living cottage” forms the final bedroom and with its romantic interior, the feeling of space and plenty of natural light is the ideal Honeymoon Suite.

Choose to have your ceremony in the beautifully landscaped Grand Dédale gardens, by the mystic labyrinth or in the cottage which offers a typical chapel feel and can seat up to 90 guests. For your wedding reception with up to 120 guests we suggest our pool terrace overlooking the mountains or, for smaller weddings with up to 100 guests make use the Grand Dédale veranda.

"We wanted to get in touch with you just to say a huge thank you for everything you did to make our wedding such a wonderful and memorable occasion. Everything was just perfect both on the day itself and for our entire stay. Our families loved staying at the house and were so impressed with the service and food. All our guests really enjoyed the wedding day and have been raving about the venue, the food and how perfectly everything was arranged. So a massive thank you to you and all your team for ensuring it all went so well! Also a big thank you to you for all your help over the last year in getting things arranged and answering all our questions! Everything was just as we wanted it and we were able to enjoy the planning rather than it being stressful! I am sure we will be back for another visit in the not too distant future"

"Words cannot describe the gratitude we have toward you and your phenomenal team! The staff at Grand Dedale were friendly, kind, helpful and at all times professional! The experience was made so much more enjoyable knowing that we could trust in your team! The food was delectable, cooked to perfection and presented with professional flare! The Manor House, veranda and gardens have been maintained exquisitely and I am so proud that we could begin our future together in such a spectacular setting. I hope that each wedding in the future will be as incredible as ours. Any couple who work with you, are lucky! I will shout Grand Dedale’s praises from the rooftops and hope we will return regularly to check on our special place!"

<blockquote"I could not recommend Grand Dédale highly enough as a wedding venue. They turned our wedding day into an absolute fairy tale come true. The hosts, Tina and Angelo, go above and beyond to make sure that everything is absolutely perfect. They had so much patience when dealing with our endless queries and requests. The attention to detail is impeccable. The staff are incredibly friendly and professional. Our guests raved about the food and the breath taking venue. We were treated like royalty throughout the weekend and we even got rose petals and some delicious bubbly in our room when the party eventually ended at 2 am. Thanks so much to Grand Dédale for making our special weekend even more special"
