The great thing about getting married in Cape Town is that you can combine your wedding with a South Africa safari after you get hitched. The winter season runs between May and August and since this is the low season, you’ll save on the total costs of your wedding and honeymoon.
Cape Town winters, while they can often bring rain, also have wonderfully sunny days.The attractive exchange rate works well for couples on a budget. Take a look:
