We had the most beautiful wedding at Stephward Estate. Almost everything were done and arranged by Stephan and Howard. Stephan thank you for everything you did from making all the attire especially my wedding dress, beautiful flower arrangement, decor, using the premises and even drying my tears with your humor through out the whole arrangement of our wedding 👌💒


recommends Stephward Estate in Uvongo not only want to recommend the venue, but insist that you allow the hosts to assist with the planning too. You will not be sorry and you will spare yourself a lot of headache. These are absolute

5 stars is not enough. We got married at the estate in the most amazing gardens followed by the reception up at the pool. The service was better than we could ever have imagined, from when our guests arrived till they left they could not stop complimenting the venue the food and staff. Stephen and Howard are true professionals and their attention to detail is unbelievable. The minister and DJ they suggested were absolutely fernomimal. Living in JHB and having a wedding at the coast can be a daunting task, but with Stephen and Howard's assistance and guidance nothing could have been easier. My wife and I will be returning to Stephward Estate soon, as this has become a romantic destination with magic memories for us.
We will never have the words that could fully explain how beautiful and special Stephward Estate and the staff are and we can never stop thanking all.

Stephen van Belkum is a true artist when it comes to design and his attention to detail in the assembly of his creations is absolutely mind blowing. For those who don't know his culinary skills "oh my God". I've had a few meals at Stephward estate and each one is and experience of pure pleasure and a treat to my taste buds.

Leonie Martin One of a kind Stephen van are both South Coast legends! I remember meeting you for the first time when you made my daughter Lana (who was then a TEENAGER)a dress as a prize for winning Miss St Michael's....she is now 43! You have certainly designed your way into our hearts 😘 
Dandre Potgieter  recommends Stephward was my first day at Stephward Estate and I was flabbergasted! I usually don't do these Facebook review things but decided since my experience there was so memorable I simply had to come review them.

I would recommend every single plant lover to go have a look, the stock they have will most certainly blow you away.

 4 weeks ago was my first visit and we had been looking for a place to eat when we came across it on google search. The word for my experience there is astounding.It was such an incredible place from the very entrance to the exit. Sitting down for lunch at the pool side with those staggering large pillars made me feel like i was transported to Italy or a countryside in France. No exaggeration they place is amazing and if you love romantic settings or want to reconnect with nature this is the place to go to. Stephan and Howard along with Ignatia were so inviting that you feel like you dining with friends more than being patrons at a restaurant. They are incredible people and when they say it is an exotic nursery be prepared for an experience. Howard is so knowledgeable about his plants and even though i am an avid gardener i was put to shame by everything he knows. This is a place to be and visit and i am waiting to try out their accommodation but i will let you know this ...If you want to meet great people and have good laughs then visit them and you will become guests for life. My husband and i will definitely be making reservations for our weekly sunday dates there. So give it a try and you will never regret it. The food is great and try the potato soup , it is finger licking good. Thanks Stephan and Howard for a great time

Most beautiful, tranquil, it is the most peaceful place to be. The management and staff are helpful and friendly. I was honoured to display my gifting as I love doing decor and catering. The meal served was super and professionally presenting. I am recommending the venue to friends and family and hope to see you soon. With kind regards Ada McLeod
Stephen van Belkum sweetheart u are an amazing person. We thought searching for a matric dance outfit would be a nightmare and many trips to far away places. Instead U took the stress away and designed Hayley a master piece. We r so in love with this design and cant wait to share it with the world on the day. Thank u from the Knox family.

We had a wonderful evening at Stephward Estate -ate smoked salmon starter with Syephen's delicious homemade bread, oxtail and rack of lamb for mains and a delicious boozy berry crepe and ice cream for dessert. The oxtail was delicious and beautifully tender -the meat fell off bones. My husband's lamb had an interesting blend of spices -such a nice change from the usual rosemary and garlic. Stephen (chef ) hinted at 38 spices in his unique blend. We shared the boozy berry crepes and ice cream and have no regrets! Host Howard was affable and had some interesting stories to share about the place, it's history and the wonderful selection of "objets " on display. I do hope we can return in daylight and enjoy the exotic nursery and the exterior setting as much as we enjoyed the interior. This looks like an amazing occasion venue too.
