Exceptional and Luxurious Wedding Venue in Hermanus

The location of Grootbos is probably unbeatable throughout the whole of South Africa, if not the world, with panoramic views across the sea and mountain landscapes of the Walker Bay, stretching all the way from Hermanus to Cape Point. Getting married late in the afternoon, while the sun sets over the Atlantic ocean, surrounded by friends and family, makes this an unforgettable experience worthy of the finest Champagne.

Grootbos is located near Hermanus, in the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom, and has been voted one of the Best Hotels in the World by Tatler Travel Guide. With over 750 indigenous species and two large Milkwood Forests, one cannot find a more natural setting to embrace ones love for another.

The ceremony can be held in one of the many romantic outdoor lanscapes in the tranquil atmosphere of the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve. You decide where your special guests can witness you taking your vows of love; will it be amongst the natural spleandour of the Cape Floral Kingdom, or on the white sand of a secluded beach or under the canopy of a ancient milkwood forest . . . all the while the whales frolic in the distance.

Should the weather not permit, the ceremony will be held in the modern grandeur of the main lodge with its cosy fireplaces, tastefully decorated lounge areas and breathtaking views of Walker Bay and surrounding mountains.

All our wedding packages are tailor-made to meet your specific needs and geared to give you that fairytale luxury wedding in Hermanus!
