If there ever was a time to seek out the perfect event setting, your wedding day must be it.
For those lucky souls looking to tie the knot in South Africa, you can’t go wrong with the idyllic coastal settings of The Oyster Box in Durban or The Twelve Apostles Hoteland Spa in Cape Town.
The Oyster Box is one of South Africa’s most desired wedding locations and has a long history of hosting these important occasions, from the proposal and engagement to the big day itself. Set on Umhlanga’s beachfront, the hotel affords sweeping views out across the Indian Ocean, where dolphins fly through the waves.
The Twelve Apostles is equally as breathtaking in its location on Cape Town’s most scenic coastal route. With a stunning vantage point looking out across the Atlantic Ocean, the hotel is backed by the majesty of Table Mountain National Park and the Twelve Apostles mountain range.
The occasion can be made even more memorable at The Twelve Apostles by holding the ceremony in the fragrant Fynbos Garden, or at The Oyster Box by saying your vows in the small amphitheatre in the hotel’s garden, followed by a reception in the opulent Pearl Room.
It isn’t only the setting that makes these venues stand out though; each one offers attentive service to match the five-star resplendence and views, plus the expertise of each luxury hotel’s own wedding planner, offered at no extra expense.
In both locations, these special events are seamlessly executed, with optimum attention to detail. Within each couple’s budget and taking into account their personal style and taste, all elements of the day – from the menu to flowers, photography to music – support is given each step of the way.
If this wasn’t enough, each couple that holds their wedding at either venue is regaled with gifts, from a complimentary stay in the finest room to a first-anniversary dinner and wine from South Africa’s outstanding Bouchard Finlayson estate.
Perhaps most importantly, each wedding day is unique. At The Twelve Apostles and The Oyster Box, weddings really are all about the bride and groom.
