Weddings in Cape Town
When choosing a wedding venue, the Western Cape is certainly one of the most beautiful locations. A diverse landscape that boasts pristine beaches, rolling winelands and towering mountains, Cape Town and surrounds provide idyllic wedding venues for the perfect ceremony.
Picture the oldest and largest botanical gardens in South Africa, Kirstenbosch, with the eastern slopes of Table Mountain as the backdrop for your wedding in Cape Town. These gardens alone contain as many as 6000 floral species and over 22000 indigenous plants, so whatever your wedding colour scheme and whatever season you choose, there will be blooms to augment and compliment your Cape Town Wedding style.
If Cape Town is the wedding destination of your choice then you won’t know where to start with all the choices you’ll have to make next. The Mother City has some of the most picturesque beaches in the world with wide expanses of sand, sparkling water and strategically placed boulders for those ‘photo moments’.
The abundance of wine estates located in Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Wellington and Paarl and an ideal setting for an Cape wedding. With sweeping views over vineyards and mountains a wine estate wedding makes an excellent setting for photographs as well as offering a beautiful setting for guests to enjoy. Menus vary from one location to another, but with the variety of venues on offer you’re sure to find something that suits your requirements. In addition, many wine estates offer accommodation giving guests and the bridal party the opportunity to stay overnight.
The Cape West Coast, until recently largely unexplored and unexploited, is a region of unrivalled beauty and geographical diversity. This area of the world is renowned for its spectacular display of wild flowers during spring, its unspoilt beaches and beautiful mountain ranges and picturesque little towns like Darling, St Helena Bay and the fishing village of Paternoster.
And if that doesn’t tempt you then the Garden Route’s shadowy forests, peaceful lakes and wetlands or the Cape Overberg’s numerous quaint villages and the dry Karoo with a sullen beauty all of her own certainly will.
There are plenty of excellent wedding photographers. Once you have found your perfect setting, book your photographer immediately, a most are booked from 9 months up to a year in advance. Generally photographers offer a selection of set wedding packages, although most will be more than happy to tailor a package to suit your individual requirements.
The magnificent scenery and romantic coves of the Western Cape offer an abundance of spectacular wedding locations to suit every taste.
Whether you dream of being married next to the ocean, with your toes pressing into the soft sand, or in the shadow of a dramatic mountain pass with vineyards all around you, the Western’s Cape varied and breathtaking landscape will offer the ultimate location for the wedding you’ve always imagined.
