Every couple deserves a wedding as unique as they are, and there is nowhere more unique than South Africa. Beautiful beaches, desert landscapes, mountain peaks and spring wildflowers are just a few of the iconic backdrops you can choose from for your South Africa wedding venue. Give your reception a local taste with wines from the oldest region outside of Europe’s wine country. Entertain your guests with an amazing safari tour from Johannesburg, getting up close with the likes of lions, giraffes, crocodiles, even penguins. The “Gold Mile,” a stretch of buttery yellow beaches in Durban, is perfect for the couple seeking time in the sun and a beach ceremony. Port Elizabeth is the water sport capital of South Africa, where you can try your hand at surfing, scuba diving or game fishing. From start to finish, your wedding in South Africa will be beyond anything you ever imagined.
