Allee Bleue – Franschhoek

The village of Franschhoek in the Cape Winelands can definitely claim the “Wedding Capital of South Africa” title!  So many of the top Cape Town Wedding Venues is situated in this beautiful valley.  This is also the location of the Allee Bleue Estate, a typical South African wine estate with beautiful Cape Dutch buildings & vineyards.  It is also famous for its expansive lavender fields and French blue theme throughout the estate.

For the ceremony, you can choose outdoor settings under huge oaks or the open air setting on the lawn with a 200 meter lavender lined path leading up to it. There is also the picnic area for more informal affairs and off course a few covered Plan B options should the weather not play along. 

The venue has no fewer than 10 options for your reception setting, making it one of the most versatile wedding venues around.  These settings range from Le Grand Hall, a sophisticated, modern purpose built venue that can comfortably seat up to 350 guests, to the intimate Manor House with a max pax of 40.

An added bonus at Allee Bleue is the honeymoon suite that also doubles up a bridal prep location.  Once you’ve laid your eyes on this historic old cottage with modern interior and decor, there is no turning back!
