Planning a Wedding in Pretoria, South Africa

Planning a Wedding in Pretoria, South Africa

Known for its purple blossoms, the pretty sights of this city create a serene atmosphere for your wedding day.

Are you planning a wedding in South Africa? A fairly young but still history-packed city, Pretoria is cosmetically lovely and effortlessly laid-back, despite its fascinating and occasionally complicated past. Slower-moving than nearby Johannesburg, the purple blossom-filled “Jacaranda City” retains its Afrikaans culture and a leisurely approach to life and is a particularly pretty place to plan your wedding.



Pretoria Wedding Venues


Chic, country-inspired, and home to some excellent fly fishing property (the men in your life should feel free to rejoice), the Oxbow Country Estate is a beautiful Pretoria wedding location with the utmost of class. The Riverbed Hall is the venue’s main reception location, and its view of meandering streams and ancient Eucalyptus trees is almost as picture-perfect as the hall itself. A wedding night stay in the estate’s romantic guest suite is included in your wedding package and comes with a celebratory bottle of sparkling wine.

Pretoria Wedding Dresses

Few decisions will fall closer to your own heart on your wedding day than finding the perfect dress. Long or short, lace or tulle, your dress is a personal representation of your own style and sophistication – as well as an item that will be catalogued in countless photos and carry you through a night of celebration. Fortunately, we have one or two Pretoria wedding dress shops in mind to help you navigate these white dress waters, and we think they’re some of the best. Morgan & Brown Bridal is a shop with a stunning collection of limited edition gowns, while Bridal Manor specializes in couture gowns and luxurious fabrics.
