In Cape Town and surrounds we are blessed with so many options of churches, from historical Cape Dutch architecture to ornate Cathedral’s, which can accommodate anything from intimate to elaborate weddings. Here are some of our favourites…

|| The Greek Orthodox Cathedral of St. George. Wow! Located on a small plot in Woodstock, this church is one for the books. The Greek Cathedral was built in 1903–04, just a few years after Cape Town received its first Greek Orthodox priest. Do not be fooled by the outside, but this church can host up to 150 guest weddings. The ceiling and walls of the church is a colourful and decorative display of worship.

|| Holy Trinity Church, Kalk Bay. We love this church situated in this quaint fisherman’s town. It has a very intimate feel and dates back to the early 1800’s.

|| Solms Delta Church, Franschhoek. This 40-seater chapel is great for smaller weddings and offers fantastic acoustics.

|| Strooidakkerk, Paarl. When they speak about a church with presence, this one definitely comes to mind! This is your typical Cape Dutch church that can host large wedding ceremonies. We love     the glass divider in the church between the entrance and seated area. You are able to see right to the back of the church where the organ is situated as you walk in the front door!

|| Pniel Congregational Church. Pniel, meaning ‘the face of God’, is home to a gorgeous church that houses almost the entire community every Sunday. Located in a small town, this church has the most beautiful mountain backdrop accentuated by the long driveway.

More than just pretty, but also delectable! The cake is an important feature of the wedding because sharing a piece represents fertility and brings good luck. Wedding cakes have transformed into an element of their own and can have an independent look and feel.

Elize and Stefan. It’s not very often we get to have a black wedding cake. This four tier cake could not be more perfect. We adore the smooth black fondant combined with the ornate gold bottom tier. The addition of the orchids softens the over all look.

Kerstin and Marinus. This semi-naked cake looks as beautiful as it does delicious. We love the macaroons, chocolate truffles and meringues dotted around the cake with the dripping white chocolate down the sides, simply scrumptious!

SW and Gerhard.  Each layer is decorated with different techniques which creates a bold statement complemented with the red floral detail.

Clare and Marco. This simplistic four-tier cake was beautifully iced in smooth fondant with iridescent pearls to finish off each tier. Our favourite is the ombré floral cascading down the side of the cake.

Ty and JD. A gorgeous gold molten show stopper. It’s ostentatiousness is muted by it only being two tiers and this is why we love this cake!
