A picture-perfect day awaits.
A day as important as your wedding deserves a setting that adds to the romance, beauty and joy of it all. Outside and in, the graceful, historic Cellars-Hohenort Hotel is the perfect backdrop to your special day. Surrounded by gorgeous gardens, it has a variety of stylish spaces and charming nooks to suit any type of nuptials – whether a small, intimate affair or a big, multi-generational celebration. Every step of the way, from pre-wedding dinners to the honeymoon, this hotel delivers dream weddings effortlessly.
Tucked into a valley on the forested slopes of Table Mountain, the four-hectare property has manicured lawns, an enchanted forest, a vineyard, a palm arch, water features and a stunning rose garden – all against the backdrop of a grand old gabled Cape mansion.
Inside, there’s the Great Hall that opens onto a wraparound balcony, and the glass-walled Conservatory, built around an old oak tree and leading out onto a sunny terrace.
A choice of menus
Your guests will be spoiled with delicious food, much of it made using fresh produce from the garden. Executive chef Tronette Dippenaar creates personalised menus that tell the couple’s story – whether traditional SA classics, global cuisine, seafood-focused or vegetarian. From canapés and cocktails to Champagne brunches, high teas or fine-dining dinners paired with the best wines, the hospitality team at The Cellars-Hohenort will take care of all the details immaculately.
Stay the night
A proud member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, the property has 51 rooms and suites, suitable for families with little children and even pets! If your dog simply has to be part of your wedding, no problem. To keep everyone relaxed, there are two pools, a tennis court, gym, hair salon plus the all-essential spa for pampering treatments every bride and groom, and their party, deserve. There are also two secluded Villas for more space and privacy (or your celebrity guests!).
The hotel offers special three-, four- or five-night packages for couples to begin their married life, including gourmet dinners, romantic turndowns and spa packages. There is also the option of heading off to one of the other two Liz McGrath Collection properties: The Marine in Hermanus and The Plettenberg on the Garden Route.
