You'd have to be hard pressed not to consider South Africa as a prime location for your wedding - the sun shines, well, the sun shines a lot! And there is no limit to the variety of really 'picturesque destinations' (at the risk of using a worn idiom to describe wedding venues in South Africa) - a country that has it all when it comes to wedding venues.
South Africa is rife with wedding venues that facilitate everything. You can get married in a chapel or little church on the same property that has a marvellous reception venue, a number of menu options, and guest accommodation. Most of these will cater within your budget and will go the extra mile to make sure your wedding meets your expectations.
Then there are the countless little stone churches in villages or towns throughout South Africa. These alone are worth arranging your wedding around, and most of these towns offer great wedding venues and accommodation - Knysna, McGregor and Mkuze - to name but a few.
And if that isn't what you had in mind, there are a number of alternative choices as well - stone castles, hunters' lodges and historical homes, from the Eastern Cape to Mpumalanga.
