With destination weddings all the rage now, Stellenbosch, South Africa's leading wine region just 40 minutes from Cape Town, is the ideal spot to wrap up celebrations and honeymoon in one fabulous break.
Few places in the world merge the beauty of nature so seamlessly with modern yet affordable luxury, foodie experiences and outdoor adventures. The year-round pleasant climate and favourable exchange rate - currently with a keen 16-plus Rand to the Euro – add to the appeal and make Stellenbosch the ultimate nuptial experience.
Stellenbosch's verdant wine estates are popular choices for many bridal couples. There's nothing as romantic as getting married on a wine estate – just picture it: rolling green lawns, stunning sunsets, and a blushing bride and groom in white, with guests enjoying the award-winning vintages from the hosting vineyard. The gorgeous scenery adds lustre to any wedding day. From boutique wineries with off-site accommodation to 200-year old estates with rooms leading straight onto reception-ready patios, there is a breathtaking assortment of venues to choose from.
