Many brides, when they start looking for a wedding venue, want something unusual and unique so that their wedding is not the same as all of their friends. We have some unusual and unique wedding venues on our website, and there are many venues that will accommodate your ideas if you have something unusual that you would like to try whether it is the way you wish to decorate or an unusual place to have your ceremony.

You may want to have your wedding ceremony in a forest or set up under a large tree. Summerfields Rose Retreat and Spa in Mpumalanga has the most stunning tree under which you can have your ceremony. Forest Walk near Johannesburg is another venue which is set in a forest. Grootbos near Hermanus in the Western Cape has a milkwood forest that is over 1000 years old where you can have your ceremony and reception. Silvertree Restaurant in the world famous Kirstenbosch Gardens has a sculpture garden where you can have your ceremony looking onto Devil’s Peak mountain.

A most unusual wedding venue in Cape Town would be to have your wedding ceremony on the top of Table Mountain which has recently been declared one of the Natural Wonders of the World! The cable car takes 10 minutes to get to the top. Imagine your stunning wedding photographs taken with those views as a backdrop! It is also a popular place to pop the question if there is anyone looking for a unique place to ask their partner to marry them!

If your budget allows, some of the lodges in the game reserves of South Africa are perfect for unusual and unique weddings. Some have sleep out decks where you could spend your first night as a married couple out in the wild. It is not as basic as it sounds as you would have a luxurious setting with candles, dinner and champagne! And no, the lions cannot get to you although you may be lucky enough to hear them roaring or even see them! For a more economical alternative, the camps in Kruger National Park are able to host weddings. Please have a look at for unusual and unique wedding venues.

Remember your wedding day can be anything you want – it is your day after all.
