Having a destination wedding is something that will never go out of fashion. In fact, there is a continuously increasing rate of destination weddings.
Singer Banky W and actress Adesuwa Etomi recently held their white wedding in South Africa to conclude their three-part nuptials.
Aside from how gorgeous the couple looked on its big day, another source of beauty was the wedding location.
Creating the perfect scenery and ambience for the glorious day, the wedding venues are known for their spectacular scenery and view.
Here is everything you need to know about the #BAAD 2017 wedding locations.
Wedding venue: The Roundhouse, Camps Bay
The Roundhouse rests in the valleys of Table Mountain, steeped in a rich history as old as the Cape itself.
With its sweeping views of Camps Bay and the expansive Atlantic, it was ideally situated to safeguard the ‘Cape of Storms’ from attack.
It seemed like the entire property was tailored for Banky W and Adesua to make romantic memories, with its breathtaking scenery that created an ambience of romance and royalty.
The couple was surrounded by family and close friends, the likes of Funmi Wellington, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Stephanie Coker-Aderinokun, Ihuoma Ejiofor, Noble Igwe and a whole lot of other celebrities who shared in their joy.
Its location was perfect. It takes 34 minutes to travel from Cape Town International Airport to Camps Bay. The approximate driving distance between Cape Town International Airport and Camps Bay is 29 km or 18 nautical miles.
Upmarket Camps Bay is a comfortable suburb of Cape Town that draws a large number of tourists. It is known for its fine white sand, natural rock swimming pool and views of the Twelve Apostles Mountains. Behind Camps Bay beach are posh seafood restaurants, mellow cafes and cocktail bars with patios overlooking the shores.
Close to it are malls housing boutiques that sell fashion and beachwear, while the intimate theatre on the Bay stages drama, musicals, and comedy.
The Roundhouse building also functions as a hotel, dance hall and, most famously, Lord Charles Somerset’s hunting lodge.
Its history of luxury and hospitality is still fundamental in Cape Town and the whole of South Africa today. It offers its guests an extraordinary cuisine, fine wine, and spirits, with an exceptional service.
Reception venue: The Westin Hotel, Cape Town
The Westin Hotel Cape Town gave the wedding guests memorable experiences. The distance to the hotel isn’t a long journey from the Cape Town International Airport and guests could reach there by rental car, shuttle service, or taxi, in approximately 20 minutes.
The hotel has exclusive rooms with unique views of the V&A Waterfront and Table Mountain. Westin hotel’s fantastic glass façade allows clear views of the magnificent beauty of Table Mountain, Lion’s Head and the whole of Table Bay.
Besides the large variety of restaurants in Cape Town, The Westin hotel has a great selection of elegant restaurants and bars on offer, from brassiere-style Thirty7 to ON19 with its extensive views.
Also, some of the largest and most sophisticated hotel conference and banqueting facilities in the city is found at the Westin Hotel where the reception took place.
The couple and guests experienced a wonderful Cape Town evening to round off a glamorous wedding in the Westin hotel bars; Louis B’s & Terrace and Raleigh’s Cigar Bar.
