5 Top Beach Wedding Venues -Cape Town

If you have ever considered tying the knot on the beach you need to look no further than the beautiful coastline of the Western Cape.  
We have picked 5 of the Top Beach Wedding Destinations in and around Cape Town for your consideration.

Go and enjoy a lovely day with your family and friends.  Strandkombuis has a rustic and cosy, yet upmarket feel; a seaside venue that everyone can enjoy. A favourite among photographers and bird watchers alike, their open-air venue is surrounded by 25 kilometres of secluded beach, three salt pans and pristine fynbos.

Walking in from the beach, a wooden staircase leads you up to their beautiful deck with wooden benches and tables. Half of the venue is covered by a permanent roof, while the other half is covered by a white tent. A wall at the back protects customers from the famous Capetonian wind! A full view of the stunning beach can be seen from all their tables.

Wedding Invitations

The arrangements have been made and the date has been set, now it's time to start inviting the guests!

Wedding invitations are one of the most important elements when it comes to your wedding as it is the first impression your guests will have of your special day. 

Our online invitation platform allows you to not only invite your guests, but to truly connect with them in a much more personal manner, by sharing your memories, stories and pictures of yourselves -and that of the venue, creating a feeling of excitement and anticipation.

Your guests will be blown away by the fact that they will be able to go on their mobile devices or computers at any time to view your exclusive wedding website and easily share it with friends and family. What could be easier than sending a link to your guests, and with just one click of a button they will have all the detail regarding your wedding displayed to them. This is truly a modern and revolutionary way of going about inviting your guests. 

If you still prefer the more traditional way of inviting your guests, by making use of actual printed invitations, we can combine the two and make your online invitation website reflect your printed goods, thus keeping the same theme and create a double whammy with both an online and physical invitation solution.

Imagine having your very own exclusive wedding invitation website, where your guests will be able to Experience Your Story, RSVP Online, View the Venue and Location on Google Maps and so much more... The possibilities are literally endless!

We live in a digital age, where people love digital solutions. You deserve the latest the market has to offer when it comes to the invitation process for your wedding.Your guests will get to View Pictures and Read Your Story and watch a Personal Invitation Video, from you, the soon to be married couple! You can even showcase Pictures of your Engagement Ring and Wedding Cake Ideas.

Tell your guests how the soon to be groom popped the question or even entertain them with a 
re-enactment video of your proposal!

After your wedding, you will also be able to post photos, videos and other content of the actual wedding, honey moon etc, and keep your website for years to come, turning it into your personal story that you can keep returning to, to relive the memories of those special days gone by.
