There is a great selection of beaches along the Cape Peninsula. For your wedding day, the beach will be dressed up as you like - select your own floral arch, flower choice and any hired equipment, such as chairs, umbrellas and more. We will assist throughout the celebration, from setup to guest arrival, bride arrival and departure. All necessary permits required for a function on a beach will be arranged. Some of our favourite locations include Llandudno Beach, Horn Bay Beach, Beta Beach and Windmill Beach.
This is a spectacular setting in which to say your vows. It boasts beautiful scenery and is surrounded by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and False Bay. We will find a private area away from the tourist sites. We will arrange the necessary permits required for a function in the South African National Parks Reserve.
Forest or Garden Wedding
The Western Cape region has many stunning forest settings that we are able to use for wedding ceremonies and to create a magical and private area for you to say your vows to each other.
Cape Town offers a vast selection of luxury yachts that are able to cater for just the couple or up to 60 guests. Depending on the style of ceremony and budget, we will source the perfect yacht for you. Many of the smaller luxury yachts allow for an overnight experience, which offers a unique and romantic first honeymoon night.
South African Safari Lodge
South Africa boasts a huge selection of fantastic game lodges. Spectacular settings and an opportunity to enjoy a safari experience with the family and friends, or alone. The ceremony can be conducted in the reserve itself or at the lodge. This option works perfectly for a couple wishing to marry alone or to have only a few guests.
The world famous landmark of Table Mountain offers a unique and perfect setting for you to say your vows, with breathtaking views over the city and coast. Our package includes all the necessary arrangements such as venue booking, cableway tickets and setup. We will have a contingency plan in place should the cableway station be closed due to bad weather. There's also Signal Hill as an option. It boasts the best 360 degree view over Cape Town city, Table Mountain, V&A Waterfront, Robben Island and the Twelve Apostles Mountains.
Luxury Sea Views
The magnificent Tintswalo Atlantic lodge is the ideal venue for an intimate celebration. It is positioned at the base of Champman’s Peak near Hout Bay, between the boulders of the Altantic Ocean’s water edge and the slopes of the Cape Mountain Fynbos Nature Reserve. Say your vows to each other on the pebbled beach or under the milkwood trees. This is a superb option for a couple wishing to marry alone, or take exclusive use of the lodge and enjoy a private celebration for up to 50 guests. The The Twelve Apostles Hotel is another great option, with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean.
The world famous Cape Winelands offer a vast selection of fantastic hotels and guesthouses for you to have your ceremony at. Many estates are steeped in heritage, offering white gabled Cape Dutch farmsteads with picturesque vineyards stretching forever. This option can meet with all budgets and party sizes. We recommend La Residence in the Franschhoek valley, where vineyards and mountains form a picture perfect backdrop. It combines luxurious accommodation and fine dining on a private farm, with vineyards, orchards, a dam and manicured gardens. You can have a private ceremony with only a few guests or take exclusive use of the property for a larger celebration.
