Functions & Wedding Venue


The Nacht Wacht Wedding Venue offers the ideal setting for a wedding function, corporate get-together or simply a party with close friends. The NachtWacht Restaurant seats 50 people and includes all necessary technology and amenities for intensive planning sessions or office parties.

Weddings and bigger functions are held in the old Nacht Wacht stables. Full of rustic character – a thatch roof with big wooden sliding doors – it can seat 100 guests. Nacht Wacht’s close proximity to Bredasdorp (which offers a grand old Dutch Reformed Church and a quaint rock church) and Arniston (with its wonderful old church) make it ideal for wedding receptions. But Nacht Wacht’s own natural farm setting, with its infinite fields and expansive blue skies, also provides for a unique all-in-one wedding service.

For wedding photos, bridal parties can go to the nearby fisherman’s village at Arniston, or to the pristine white beaches of Arniston and Struisbaai. Or simply enjoy Nacht Wacht Restaurant’s own backdrop: the historic white buildings, the swinging bridge over the Kars River, or the lovely Nacht Wacht gardens.

Nacht Wacht Restaurant owner Melanie Albertyn can also coordinate the entire wedding – making it a stress-free experience for the bridal pair. Beauty therapists, photographers, disk jockeys, dècor, flowers, catering – everything can be arranged by the Nacht Wacht team. Nacht Wacht Restaurant is also often the centre of local entertainment.

Artists from across the country regularly sing at the Nacht Wacht Venue. Favourites include Anton Goosen, André Swiegers, Jak de Priester and a whole lot more.
