Wedding venue: Monkey Valley

Nestled in the mountains on the outskirts of Noordhoek is the serene venue of Monkey Valley. It’s only 45 - 60 minutes outside of the centre of Cape Town, but you’ll think you’re in a distant resort, far away from the city.

They offer a few different ceremony and reception areas, ideal for small weddings with 20 guests, or bigger weddings with up to 120 guests. There are a number of chalets available, should you or guests wish to stay the night, or even the weekend.

With great views of the beach and the calming sound of wind in the treetops you can’t help but feel a little more relaxed - what more could you ask for on your wedding day?
