WWeddings in South Africa give brides and grooms a wealth of choices when it comes to that perfect event. For starters, there are many different locations to choose from – the bush, the beach, the mountains, the desert or a simple farm in the middle of nowhere.
And in South Africa, weddings are certainly not run-of-the-mill: the choice of venues is as vast and varied as the number of locations, and the local hospitality industry provides top-class service to suit any budget.
The South African wedding industry is booming, and many visitors to South Africa take advantage of local talent, exquisite venues and gorgeous settings to start their lives together. Each province has something different to offer the couple looking for a unique wedding experience.
One popular wedding destination is the Cape Winelands, and nuptials at wine estates in Stellenbosch, Constantia and Franschhoek are always a combination of beautiful settings and world-class food and wine.
In Gauteng, there’s a great choice of ‘farm wedding’ venues in the Muldersdrift region, close to the Cradle of Humankind.
In Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces, you have the option of perfect bush weddings, while in Northern Cape enormous skies and striking arid landscapes make the ideal backdrop for couples seeking a wedding with a sense of adventure – and spring weddings here (from August to October) sees Mother Nature herself taking care of the flower arrangements, when Namaqualand is carpeted with blooms.
For glitz and glamour, Sun City in North West province makes sense, as the golf course, water park and other attractions at this world-famous resort will keep guests entertained in the run-up to the big day. In the Eastern Cape, some of the country’s best beaches are part of the offering, as well as some great bushveld reserves.
For couples who want to get hitched in Free State, there are quaint towns like Clarens, Ficksburg and Parys, where welcoming home-grown hospitality is part of the deal.
In KwaZulu-Natal, there's the option of a bush wedding, an oceanside wedding, a wedding in the mountains or even a traditional Zulu wedding.
Whatever your needs or dreams are for that special day, South Africa is a choice wedding destination.
