Goedgeleven is nestled in between scenic farmlands and situated just outside Durbanville, about 200m past the “Lichtenburg / Paarl – R312” turnoff on the Klipheuwel road
The host Charmaine Gouws has more than 25 years in the wedding industry and brings their passion to life at Goedgeleven. Goedgeleven started as a small family owned business where brides came for their wedding stationery and decor ideas.
With many of the brides returning stating: “no one could implement the ideas”, Charmaine started bringing the bride’s dreams to reality by commuting from venue to venue, doing the decor and flowers, while at the same time co-ordinating the wedding on the day and at the respective venue’s.
Amongst the services offered is a quaint little chapel for intimate weddings that can comfortably seat 80 to 100 guests.
With the side doors of the chapel able to slide open, we can bring the tranquility of the garden and pond “into” the chapel and make the wedding ceremony even so much more picturesque.
The reception hall can comfortably seat 150 guests and with glass doors opening onto the pond, it allows for spectacular views over the water and landscaped gardens with views of surrounding farms all around.
Centre of the hall offers a comfortable sized dancefloor, under a customised fairy light and floral coronation ring, which again was made specially for unique photo opportunities.
With an inhouse DJ that sits one level above, with a birds eye view over the hall and dance floor, he ensures that the event is at all times filled with clients customized playlists while still accessible for special requests, creating so much more memorable moments.
Goedgeleven offers events and special occasions for groups between 40 – 250 guests, which comprises weddings, funerals, birthday parties, christenings to big corporate events and NPO benefits as well, all whilst supporting local business and in particular Alta Du Toit Children’s Home.
Our catering is of the highest standards and quality with Chefs Stefan & Ryan doing our in-house catering, thus ensuring that no guest is ever left unsatisfied.
They create visually and palate pleasing menus as well as individualized desserts placed on a multi layered dessert table, enticing even the non-dessert lover to try a taste or two.
Our beautiful gardens contribute towards the elegance of the function and the pallet furniture and cushions allow our guests to sit and enjoy their drinks and canapés.
At night we light the outside fire pits and the air is filled with wood aromas, with the outside fairy lights lit the venue becomes a truly spectacular picture with reflections on the water.
