Planning A Wedding In Cape Town South Africa

Cape Town has it all. It’s beautiful, fun, natural wonders pop out of its midst and gorgeous beaches line its coast. There are vineyards, brightly-colored buildings, and the city’s reputation for art and fashion is growing by leaps and bounds – all in all, it’s kind of a wonderful place. So wonderful, in fact, that planning a Cape Town wedding should be easy as an ocean breeze, which the city has in plenty.

Cape Town Wedding Venues

For an absolutely breathtaking Cape Town wedding venue, look no further than the Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa. Within easy reach of the heart of the city, this romantic hotel overlooks the ocean, and outdoor ceremonies can be held with either the mountains or the water in the background. An on-site catering staff will help arrange a customized menu and wine list for your celebration, and a dedicated wedding coordinator will assist with selecting floral décor.

Colona Castle is another Cape Town favorite, this time with a more intimate environment. A boutique hotel, honeymoon destination, and wedding venue, the castle has almost immediate access to Table Mountain from its mountainside position above the False Bay coastline. The hotel itself is filled with character and charm, and best suited to gatherings of 20 to 30 guests.
