Rickety Bridge Winery is one of the most popular wedding destinations in the Cape Winelands.
The idyllic setting of the wine estate provides stunning backdrops for your big day
– and our all-inclusive packages make planning easy. The most popular option is a ceremony on the beautiful lawn in front of the 17th century Manor House, with the adjacent areas that can be transformed with seating pockets and lawn games, for the guests to enjoy during cocktail hour.
The lawn is also popular for wedding receptions, and on a perfect day in Franschhoek, it offers an unforgettably romantic evening under the stars and fairy lights in the company of loved ones, or opt for an elegant marquee. Should the weather not play along, we have the old barrel function room that can comfortably seat 100 guests, used for a chapel for the ceremony, and the terrace of the function room that can be converted into a dance floor is also an option for the ceremony or reception for up to 60 guests.
