You’ve said “yes” and now it’s time to start planning the wedding of the year. While many excited couples opt for wine farm wedding venues in Cape Town – of which there are many; there is also the option to enjoy a coastal or beach wedding venue. The Cape offers one of the most spectacular coastlines with rocky outcrops, sandy beaches and sweeping views of endless ocean and mountain. The perfect vistas and romantic setting of the Cape’s beaches is ideal for couples looking to tie the knot.
Twelve Apostles Hotel – Camps Bay
By far the most romantic of wedding destinations, the Twelve Apostles Hotel is your dream wedding venue if elegance, style, 5-star service and mesmerising sunsets is what you are after.
The happy couple can say their “I do’s” under a gazebo in the Fynbos Garden with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. The garden can accommodate 80 people and has a magical mountain backdrop, perfect for pre-reception drinks. The reception can be held in the Alantic Terrace Marquee, a semi-permanent space with gorgeous sea views. The Twelve Apostles Hotel even offers an “After Party” venue. The Lions Head Room is available to those who wish to extend the party into the early hours of the morning.
Roundhouse – Camps Bay
The Roundhouse is situated in Camps Bay just above The Glen Forest on the slopes of Lions Head. It has magnificent views over Camps Bay Beach, the Twelve Apostles and the surrounding suburb.
The venue offers multiple options for both intimate gatherings and large wedding parties. The wedding party can have exclusive use of the restaurant, terraces and/or lawns. The Glen Forest provides fantastic photo opportunities or the happy couple can pop down to Camps Bay beach for some photos during sunset.
Cape Point Vineyards – Noordhoek
Cape Point Vineyards is incredibly popular and there is no surprise why! The combination of the vineyards with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean is most certainly a winning one. The Cape Point Vineyards is located in Noordhoek and has glorious 360 degree views. Well known for their Thursday night market and daily picnics, the estate has definitely made a name for itself.
