The Northern Suburbs region is known for its warm hospitality and homely ambiance, with all the style and sophistication associated with the wine lands, even though it falls just outside the Helderberg border. Whether you're planning an intimate family gathering or a full blown family affair, a wedding in the Northern Suburbs has your names written all over it, in calligraphy of course. Located within close proximity of the wine lands, the area boasts quite a few wine farms of its own, especially in and around the Durbanville area.
This side of the world is known for its more tranquil atmosphere when compared to that of other city suburbs, with the many grass-covered hills setting the scene for a magical and relaxed affair. Northern Suburbs wedding venues include elegant hotels and villas as well as plenty of fine dining establishments. All these venues typically boast perfectly maintained gardens and rolling expanses of green grass, which means you don't have to travel too far to have your memories captured on camera. Then again with the wine lands so close at hand, taking a drive out to one of the many prestigious Helderberg farms for a photo session in the vineyards is most certainly not out of the question. Horse ranches and lakes are also plentiful around the Northern Suburbs, all of which provide jaw-dropping backdrops for your picture-taking endeavour.
The Northern Suburbs are home to quite a few highly recommended and respected wedding service providers and with the City Bowl, Stellenbosch and Southern Suburbs just around the corner, you're simply spoiled for choice in all categories. With wine farms right on the door step, most Nothern Suburbs venues have extraordinary wine lists to complement what's on their menu.
While venues in the area are rumoured to be slightly more affordable than the Southern Suburbs and wine lands, they certainly don't lack where charm, views and good food is concerned. Venues are known for not only serving scrumptious food, but enough food ensuring no guest goes hungry. Out of town guests who aren't used to the hustle and bustle of the city, and don't know their way around, might also find a venue in the Northern Suburbs to be more manageable and slightly less daunting than travelling deep into the heart of the unknown city.
After the wedding, guests need not search too far to entertain themselves. The suburbs are packed with entertainment potential, from fine dining and gambling, to bob-sledding and theme parks. A tour of the prestigious wine route is also a must, so be sure to point your guest in the direction of Franschhoek. ...less
