Wedding venue & estate Nooitgedacht is a family owned and managed historical Cape Dutch wine estate with a homestead and outbuildings that date back to 1774. Welcoming guests with old worldly charm, warmth and history. The original cellar with its rustic atmosphere is used for the functions and can accommodate 120-260 guests with a dance floor and 300 without. Adjacent the cellar we have a faunum/ chapel for the ceremony which can accommodate 170 guests or the bride may prefer the ceremony in our beautiful gardens. Nooitgedacht is 4 km outside of Stellenbosch on the R 304, also known as the Koelenhof Road. The Wirth family pride themselves in that a personal touch can be found in every aspect of Nooitgedacht’s service with menus and other important details tailored to suit your personal needs in making your function a unique and special occasion. A distinctive feature of Nooitgedacht’s menu is the use of fresh produce that is in season and the special deboned leg of lamb on the spit. The starters can be served outside as finger-food together with drinks, or served at the tables. The main course is served buffet style with two or three serving points determined by the amount of people. Plated option is also available. Dessert can also be buffet style or served at the tables. Coffee is served afterwards. One of the outbuildings adjacent the Manor house has been lovingly converted into three luxury en-suite rooms affectionately named Bella, Milu and Annie each with their own unique themed décor detail. The bridal suite is situated in the Manor house with a beautiful Victorian bathroom and double doors opening on the front stoep. You are more than welcome to come visit the farm to ensure that it complies with your needs please give us a courtesy call beforehand. Viewing on Fridays and Saturdays will only be permitted between 10h00 and 13h00 unless otherwise arranged. Please feel free to contact us should there be anything else. Kind Regards, Nooitgedacht Management
