Cape Town's Best Wedding Venues

There’s no doubt that Cape Town has the most beautiful and finest wedding venues in South Africa. It’s a unique location for weddings and in very demand amongst foreigners wanting something different for their traveling guests. The combination of getting married in Cape Town and combining a safari at the same time makes it truly unique wedding destination. As a wedding photographer for the past fifteen or so years I have I have seen and photographed some incredible weddings in the Cape. I have worked with all the best wedding planners here too. I have compiled a list of my favourite wedding venues based on location, scenery, service, professionalism and of course the food. Most venues here in Franschhoek or Stellenbosch have their own in house chefs and the standard is really high. My favourite venue which ticks all the boxes and for any client wanting to get married in the Cape should check out Vrede en Lust. It has the perfect combination of excellent food, a venue in the vines, old cape dutch charm, views of the mountains, great for wedding pictures and it has a nice big oak trees for shade which in Franschhoek is a necessity in the summer. Temperatures can reach forty plus degrees celsius in the summer and this is absolutely not to be overlooked. It also has very nice options. For instance it can have an outside dance floor and has lovely lawns for tented weddings. My other favourite venue is The Conservatory in Franschhoek. It’s a fabulous venue nestled in the oak trees and has a beautiful glass structure for the wedding reception with amazing views. My remaining favourites are Boschendal, Val De Vie, Cavalli Estate, Molenvliet, Tokara, Delaire Graff, Lourensford, Vergelegen, Nooitgedacht and Diamant Estate in Paarl.
