A Winter Wedding at De Hoop

Situated within the magnificent De Hoop Nature Reserve, De Hoop Collection is arguably one of the most memorable places to celebrate a winter wedding.


Located a mere three hours drive from Cape Town, this 36 000 hectare conservation area, characterised by a rich biodiversity and rare species of fynbos, marine life and an unspoiled coastline, offers the perfect backdrop for that special occasion and has a perfect venue for winter weddings – the Shed, an exclusive and intimate venue, with breathtaking views over the 19km vlei.

A few years back De Hoop Collection’s Nini and William Stephens had seen the potential of an old storage shed and it emerged, like a butterfly from a chrysalis, after renovations into a fine function venue, perfectly suited to all special occasions – winter weddings in particular.

The Shed adds so much character to the less formal weddings – with the backdrop of the natural beauty of the Reserve, the vlei and gorgeous grounds, it makes for a picture-perfect wedding”, says Nini.

Nini is the in-house wedding co-ordinator and together with her specialist team, takes care of all your wedding plans. The De Hoop Collection has a wide range of accommodation from affordable self-catering chalets to upmarket catered lodges to accommodate your wedding party.
