WHY WE LOVE IT
The Cape may be South Africa’s best known destination for wineland weddings, but nestled in amongst the spectacular natural beauty of the Drakensberg is a breathtaking alternative, Cathedral Peak Wine Estate. The only winery in the region, this country gem combines the classic elegance of a vineyard setting with the mountains’ elevated rustic charm, and a dash of boho chic. The beauty and tranquility of the area makes for an unforgettable backdrop, whether in the heat of summer, or in the shadow of mountains capped in winter snow.
Imagine a ceremony amidst the manicured vines (an on-site chapel is also currently underway); a reception filled with laughter and light in either the working cellar, Sable Hall, or a stretch tent set up in the grounds. The views are jawdropping, the air crisp, and the memories eternal.
