If you are looking for a knock your socks off farm wedding venue in the Overberg which is unique, creative, fun, rustic and magical, where quality food is served in abundance and making you and your guests happy is an essential criteria, then you need look no further my friend.

This magical farm has the personality of its owners imprinted on its soul. De Uijlenes is a family run venue, we are not a corporate wedding business that churns weddings out and doesn’t take note of your individuality. We are a wedding venue that reflects you as a couple and if you are going to spend a bunch of money to celebrate your ‘I do’s’ then you’d might as well find a venue that suits your personality and that you feel comfortable in.

Snuggled within a stunning valley, near the seaside village of Gansbaai in the Western Cape of South Africa, you will find De Uijlenes. De Uijlenes has been a working stock and vegetable farm for centuries while remaining in the same family for over two hundred years – since 1717.

Be it a magical fairytale, boho festival chic, rustic affair or just downright quirky wedding you are after, this wedding venue can reflect your personalities and make your wedding totally unique to any other.

We offer a range of packages and catering options to suit your individual tastes and requirements. We have a team who love working with couples to create a fun, magical wedding which will wow your guests and reach what you envision for your special day. With two equally unique and different wedding venues on the farm to choose from and surrounded by glorious countryside, don’t expect to leave thinking ‘that was average’ as you will be blown away. Oh decisions decisions…



Two rustic wedding venues with natural forest and water settings for the ceremony and a charmingly capacious barn dance hall or Canadian log cabin for the celebrations.

De Uijlenes can accommodate more than 150 guests on the farm in simple, comfortable rooms adjacent to the wedding venues and just a short stumble across the grass.

Stand beneath the boughs of a 200 year old oak tree in the centre of a natural forest full of white lilies and say your vows beneath her overarching canopy.  Dude, there is no other way to say “I do”!
