Weddings Out of Africa
Getting ready to walk down the aisle with your loved one?
Weddings in southern Africa, particularly South Africa, are increasingly popular with overseas tourists. South Africa is the ultimate destination for those seeking excitement and a truly unique experience surrounded by spectacular landscapes and vistas. For some inspiration take a look at our Wedding Concepts page. We are the African travel experts and are able to assist with all aspects of your wedding, from flights to accommodation and of course the ceremony itself.

South Africa has it all
South Africa is host to world-class accommodation and offers excellent value for money. It is definitely one of the most dazzling places you could imagine spending your special day, whether it's beach, winelands, mountain, luxury yacht, forest or safari you're after. The weather, exchange rate and exceptional quality of service in South Africa make it the ideal wedding venue. The cosmopolitan city of Cape Town, in particular, boasts exquisite natural beauty, such as Table Mountain, Cape Point and some of the world's best beaches.
We can arrange a variety of out-of-the-ordinary wedding days, such as hot-air balloon ceremonies, mountain top celebrations reached by helicopter, power boats or luxurious yachts, weddings on the beach with only penguins as guests and train revelries. There are few things more romantic than an African safari. With many of Africa's top game lodges available for exclusive use, you'll find few more enchanting options for an intimate wedding with close friends and family.
We offer bespoke wedding and travel planning for couples who live overseas and need assistance with planning their special day. We choose locations with extreme care, using our extensive travel knowledge to find the ultimate venues so that you can relax and savour your wedding and honeymoon without the stress of organisation. Each wedding is individual and tailored to your requirements, style and budget. You'll never have to fit in with an already prepared package. Whether the ceremony is to be a private affair or whether there will be hundreds of guests, we give all our clients the same personal service providing unrivalled attention to detail.

"I am a romantic at heart, and for me, there can be no greater job satisfaction than combining my love of planning a romantic occasion with my passion for African travel. Planning an itinerary is such a great pleasure when I know that each couple ends up falling in love with this country. My responsibilities have included travel reservations, consulting, sales, marketing and function coordinating. I have planned functions varying in size from 10 to 1000 people for individuals and for corporate clients alike. I recognise how privileged I am to have visited over 100 cities world-wide, and to have travelled so extensively within Southern Africa during my 20 years in the tourism industry."
