Weddings And Events | Products And Services | The Aleit Group


Aleit Wedding Coordination has been established, and remains known as the most sought after wedding planner in South Africa. The company’s distinguished position within the industry can be attributed to the fact that Aleit Wedding Coordination was one of the first organisations of its kind to exclusively concentrate on wedding planning and management. Since then they had planned and managed many weddings and events for their clients.

The overwhelmingly positive response from clients that have used Aleit as their wedding coordinator revealed that it is the personalised approach, as well as the trend-setting concepts evident in their weddings and events, that have set the wedding planner apart from its peers. Their coverage in the local print- and television media through the years, further attests to these honours, earning them the title as the finest wedding planner in South Africa.



The budding success of Aleit Weddings and their unique creative approach saw to an organic expansion with the addition of an event management unit. Aleit Events, officially known as Aleit Event Projects, is a team of Cape Town based event managers that operate solely within the corporate events sector. The focus of their business involves the conceptualising, development and execution of mostly large-scale events on behalf of their corporate clients.

The Aleit event management portfolio includes the planning of conferences, conventions, hosting hospitality areas at large sporting- or entertainment events, product launches, fashion shows, gala dinners, weddings and events for exclusive clients. From the sourcing of a suitable location, arranging necessary permits and safety procedures, liaising with service professionals about logistical and technical elements, organising entertainment, décor and catering, to handling the strategic side, such as budgeting and brand management – every aspect of an event will be taken care of by the dedicated Aleit event manager



The Aleit Academy is a private tertiary institution offering a three-year event management training diploma course, which is internationally recognised and fully registered and accredited by CATHSSETA.

The Diploma Course is presented as a combination qualification that incorporates all the different facets of the industry, including Event Management & Planning, Hospitality Management and practical training.

The course has an equal focus on academic and practical event management training, consisting of three years of full time study, and the campus is based on Lourensford Wine Estate in Somerset West.



In 2011, The Aleit Group entered into an agreement with Lourensford Wine Estate to build and manage a new function venue on the Estate. The venue has been positioned to overlook most of the Estate and the Hottentots Holland mountain range, making its location prime within the Cape Winelands, and is the ideal venue for weddings and events. The Aleit Group’s superior knowledge and honourable reputation within the events industry make us the most credible and favoured professionals to take up the responsibility of managing a wedding or corporate event venue.

The venue has a modern architectural style, yet serves as a blank canvas to allow a personalised style for each individual wedding and event setup. Outstanding views amidst the majestic mountains and rolling vineyards, will offer guests a walk in the clouds, so to speak, adding to its charm. The onsite services include catering, bar & staffing, coordination and décor services – ensuring that all weddings and events hosted at the venue will enjoy the attention to detail required and that the finest standards are maintained.
