This can be started on the day before the wedding if it is practically possible. Speak to our coordinating staff should you or a third party working on your behalf, have any special needs with regards to décor, power or access to the premises.
Should you wish to use VnL as venue for your ceremony, we can provide you the location free of charge. This would however not include furniture or décor. We do make use of various rental companies and can gladly advise you on your set-up requirements. This will be for your own account.
All catering will be arranged by Outcook Express in conjunction with the client and VNL. We have a wide variety of menus for you to choose from (prices are subject to seasonality) and our chef’s are flexible to cater to your needs should you need to make changes to our menus. Final number of guest and menu need to be confirmed 14 days in advance of the function date.
Please note that Outcook Express is VNL’s sole catering company.
Should the client outsource the catering, a kitchen hire will apply, payable to Vrede en Lust.

The venue is available until 13H00 for breakfast, 17H30 for lunch, 21H00 for a cocktail party or until 01h00 for a dinner.The Host will be entitled in event of a dinner to extend the Function until 02h00 at an additional charge, which will be payable by the Host to VNL immediately at the end of the function.
It should be noted that the cut off time for music is 24h00 should the music be staged outside the Historic cellar in order to minimise the impact for VNL’s neighbours.
