Bela Bela Weddings


Bela Bela, also known as Warmbaths, is situated in the beautiful South African province of Limpopo. Famous for its hot springs, this town’s name is a Sotho translation for “Boiling Boiling”. These hot springs are over 50 degrees Celsius and approximately 22 000 litres bubble forth from the surface of the earth every hour! These springs are a delight to local and international tourists and are just one of the features that have made this destination such a popular one amongst couples looking for a wedding and honeymoon venue. These springs have various health benefits, guaranteed to relax tired, stressed bodies and minds, making even the tensest of brides-to-be feel restful and refreshed.

In addition to this natural attraction, Bela Bela is also known for its exquisite weather, with an average of 289 days of sunshine every year. This is a huge advantage to couples wanting to celebrate their big day in warm conditions, or planning to have an outdoor wedding. It also makes for optimal photographic backdrops. Because this natural beauty lies about 100 kilometres from Pretoria and slightly further from Johannesburg and the OR Tambo International Airport, Bela Bela is convenient to couples, wedding service providers and wedding guests.

The greater area around Bela Bela is known for its agricultural value. This means an abundance of fertile, lush places in which to set your ceremony, reception and wedding photographs. There is also a plethora of game parks and nature reserves in the immediate vicinity, giving honeymooning couples plenty of opportunities to admire the unique combination of fauna and flora in the Limpopo Province.
