Many of the wedding venues in Somerset West are situated above sea level providing magnificent views of the ocean to compliment the surrounding trees and Helderberg mountain range. One of the advantages to getting married at a location in this area is you are practically in the countryside yet only 20-30 minutes from Cape Town International Airport meaning if you have guests flying in to celebrate your special day with you they do not have hours and hours to then travel by road to get to your celebrations.
Luxury guest houses offer an intimate setting for a garden wedding and most have beautiful gardens surrounded by old oak and pine trees. For those looking to get married by the sea there is the Strand beach, Gordons bay and more choice of white sandy beaches as you drive a little further around the coast on the mountain drive. Gordons bay is perhaps not the best place to have a wedding outside as it often gets hit by the South East wind in the summer months. For those getting married the area of Somerset West is an ideal choice and full of wedding venues to suit any couple.
