Get married in Cape Town – The Cape Town Wedding

Cape Town Wedding

Cape Town Wedding

Making your wedding ‘just perfect’ entails a blend of factors, not least of which includes the dress ‘to die for’ and a great cape town wedding venue. With Cape Town as the city of choice for your big day, you won’t have far to look. Cape Town is the city of fair skies, gorgeous beaches, magnificent gardens and an extensive list of Cape Town wedding and reception venues. Outdoor locations for stunning wedding photographs abound.

Picture the oldest and largest botanical gardens in South Africa, Kirstenbosch, with the eastern slopes of Table Mountain as your backdrop. These gardens alone contain as many as 6 000 floral species and over 22 000 indigenous plants, so whatever your colour scheme and whatever season you choose, there will be blooms to augment and complement your style.

Early morning shoots are probably best for a wedding on one of Cape Town’s beaches as the Cape Doctor – another name for the spring and early summer south-easterly wind that prevails in the city – tends to make its presence felt in the afternoons, although with it comes Table Mountain’s legendary table cloth – providing yet another perfect photo setting.

Nevertheless, you are spoilt for choice as the Mother City, Cape Town, 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.

From the fashionable beaches of Cape Town’s ‘Riviera’ – the Atlantic Seaboard Beaches – including Camps Bay, Llandudno (definitely one of the most beautiful) and Noordhoek with its miles of sand and dunes, to the beaches of False Bay offering some real character beaches, such as St James or Boulders.

The Cape winelands estates in and around Cape Town all have a unique beauty of their own. Invariably wine estates lie tucked into picturesque valleys, surrounded by majestic mountains and vineyards heavy with grapes during the summer months.

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 Overberg’s numerous quaint villages and the dry Karoo with a sullen beauty all of her own – flat, sandy plains, shimmering heat and distant smoky-blue mountains – certainly will.
