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.

Winter in Cape Town, while often brings rain, there are also wonderfully sunny days.The attractive exchange rate works well for couples on a budget.

The Twelve Apostles, Camps Bay

Situated much closer to Cape Town’s city centre and the palm-lined beach of Camps Bay, the Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa offers views of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head as well as the endless Atlantic Ocean.

This award-winning hotel has an in-house wedding planner who can advise and co-ordinate your bespoke winter wedding. A dedicated service team, great cuisine and an intimate setting makes this a popular wedding venue for locals and tourists alike. Glamorous rooms round off the experience and the spa facilities are perfect for pre-wedding pampering.

Mount Nelson Hotel, Gardens

The Mount Nelson Hotel has a star-studded history and is a vibrant hideaway for a romantic experience. Located at the foot of majestic Table Mountain, Mount Nelson offers a peaceful retreat in the middle of the city. Its interiors have quirky, modern touch that give you room to play around with in terms of your wedding decor.

Choose between a lush garden for an outdoor ceremony, a ballroom for your reception and an intimate function room for smaller weddings. A warm fireplace with hearty, gourmet cuisine sets the tone for a stately wedding with all the trimmings.

But this was seldom, and it…
