Riebeek Wedding Venue
The Bloekomsrus Riebeek Wedding Venue is situated between Wellington & Gouda on the R44, just outside the small railway station town of Hermon and can accommodate up to 120 guests (with a dance floor).
The lovely Bloekomsrus gardens have many little nooks and shaded areas that are perfect for ceremonies for between 20 – 120 guests. For those who prefer an indoor ceremony the smaller hall, adjacent to the reception hall, can be converted into a small chapel. The courtyard, studded with oak trees, provides a perfect space for pre-drinks and canapés. The main hall is a gorgeous canvas for any reception with high reed ceilings, exposed wooden rafters and chandeliers. Their venue is equipped with air conditioners for those hot summer days and two massive fireplaces to keep a winter wedding warm and cosy.
The smaller hall, adjacent to the main reception hall, is the perfect choice for the bridal party who wants a cosy chapel atmosphere on their wedding day. Space can be arranged in any way you see fit, and also provides a convenient backup location in the event that an outdoor ceremony becomes impossible due to inclement weather on the day.
Garden Wedding Ceremonies
Outdoor wedding ceremonies at Bloekomsrus are truly magical. Their standard outdoor setup features rustic wooden benches in a secluded part of the garden – with the sun setting behind the oak trees, it is the perfect location for a shady afternoon ceremony. They are however happy to accommodate you in any part of the garden that appeals to your personal sense of aesthetic and ambience.
The indoor reception hall provides a clean, open space that you can decorate and arrange to your heart’s content to suit your wedding theme. The clean lines of the high reed ceilings, rustic texture of the exposed rafters, and the hint of glamour added by the tasteful chandeliers offers a versatile backdrop that can be dressed up and down according to your personal taste.
Is there anything more delicious than enjoying an al fresco fete with your nearest and dearest? At Bloekomsrus they love taking the party outside. With outdoor receptions, they can accommodate much more than their usual 120 guests, so you can invite the entire clan! Whether in the garden or in the courtyard, their lovely Swartland summer evenings make for the perfect setting under the stars.
