Joy at Gelukkie Wedding Venue

Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life…why not spend it in one of the most special places on the West Coast!

Gelukkie offers a beautiful venue and set of wedding package options to make your day everything you could possibly dream of.

Gelukkie caters for those couples looking for a different, exciting wedding unlike any other. The venue is intimate and has a rustic-chic style. Our weddings are aimed at a maximum of 80 guests at prices that wont leave you wishing you had eloped!

Gelukkie is a mere 2 minutes drive away from the main little fishing village of Paternoster allowing you and your guests privacy from the hustle and bustle of the main village while at the same time, giving you the coastal wedding experience you have always wished for.

We have contracts with prestigious establishments allowing our bridal couples the privilege of being married on the beach and then returning to Gelukkie for their tranquil garden reception in our courtyard oasis. Should a beach wedding not quite be your style, feel free to have the ceremony in our gardens at no extra charge.

All catering, décor, flowers and wedding coordination can be done internally by our very talented family team so all you have to do is put on your bridal attire, sit back and enjoy every moment!

Gelukkie also has two beautiful cottages which are included in the wedding packages. These cottages sleep two people each.

With over 50 years of event and wedding experience under this team's belt and a property which has been featured in countless interior and décor publications, you can rest assured that your day will be everything and more than what you ever dreamed.

We also specialise in smaller weddings of up to 30 guests so contact us for our Small Weddings package which is designed around the budget conscious bridal couples.

Every day felt like a Saturday at Nog n Gelukkie. Easy mornings staring out the window for hours, followed by never-ending afternoons on the day bed - I think we slept 13 hours the last night!! Wish we could load the house on a trailer and take it home, it is just so practical and beautiful at the same time. We had loads of furry visitors in the garden, words just cannot describe how amazing this place is! We hope to see you again soon!
