Things you didn’t know about Cape Winelands Wedding Venues
There are a number of exquisite Cape Winelands wedding venues available to hire for your special day. But if you do need a bit more convincing, here are a few facts as to why you should set your wedding gaze on the Cape Winelands:
1. Cape Town was selected as the best place in the world to visit by the New York Times in 2014
This includes visiting the beautiful beaches, majestic Table Mountain and the delicious Cape Winelands. If you’re planning your wedding in the Cape, your guests will have more than enough to see and do in and around the Mother City and have an incredibly memorable holiday.
2. The Cape Floral Kingdom is home to nearly 7000 plants found nowhere else in the world. What does this mean for your Cape Winelands wedding venue? Flowers, flowers and more flowers. Natural beauty par excellence… in every photo, at every sundowner and with every view of the landscape. Who could ask for a better backdrop for their wedding photos then unique, indigenous fauna and flora?
3. The Cape Winelands is one of the world’s top 10 wine producing areas
If this isn’t reason enough to host your wedding at a Cape Winelands Wedding Venue then we don’t know what is. Jane Austen even knew the magic of the Cape Winelands when she wrote in her novel Sense and Sensibility: “a little Constantia healing powers on a disappointed heart”!
4. Blue Flag Beaches
Blue Flag status is awarded to beaches that meet the strict criteria of the Blue Flag Campaign. Amongst other things, Blue Flag beaches must meet certain security, cleanliness and safety, standards and is managed by the Wildlife and Environmental Society of South Africa (WESSA). There are eight Blue Flag beaches in the Cape, including Camps Bay, Clifton, Llandudno (Atlantic Seaboard) and Muizenberg. Strandfontein (False Bay) is also a blue flag beach and is situated right within the Cape Winelands. Your wedding guests can therefore enjoy the best of both worlds, when you hire a Cape Winelands Wedding Venue.
5. Autumn in the Cape Winelands is beyond spectacular
There are not many places in the world that offer a beautiful setting for an autumn wedding. In the Cape Winelands, most wine farms flaunts a breathtaking canvas of red, gold, orange and burgundy with the fading colours of the vineyards and beautiful soft lighting. This offers an absolutely stunning setting for your autumn wedding photos. Being the Southern Hemisphere, it is also still relatively warm in autumn and therefore your wedding guests can still soak up some African sunshine.
