Showing 1 - 1 of 1 Dolphin Coast Wedding Venues
Tying the knot at a Dolphin Coast wedding venue is really quite a treat. Running along the northern coast of KwaZulu Natal, the Dolphin Coast is known for the bottle nose dolphins that can often be seen playing and dancing among the rippling waves of the ocean. What sets this area apart from the Durban beach front is the idyllic tranquillity that lends itself to lazy days on the beach and private, peaceful weddings away from prowling eyes.
Some of the more popular Dolphin Coast wedding destinations include Ballito, Salt Rock, Umdloti and Princes Grant, home to some of the country's most pristine beach front venues. These magical wedding locations range from hotels, restaurants and reserves to trendy outdoor beach venues infused with the spirit of the ocean and the energy of the people. Ballito especially has mushroomed into one of the country's most popular beach front wedding destinations, with service providers to boot. The Dolphin Coast also boasts quite a few golf estates, some of which overlook the crashing waves of the Indian Ocean, while its close proximity to the bushveld means you're spoiled for choice when it comes to wedding venues.
The coast is dotted with magical rock and tidal pools and rock formations against which the waves crash and explode into tiny crystals, creating magical backdrops for your wedding moments. If your photographer is as sharp-eyed as he or she claims to be, you might just be lucky enough to capture a dolphin or two frolicking in the background. On the other hand, the bordering bushveld provides an entirely different setting to the coast line itself, while the almost mystical and enchanting sugar cane fields offer a more rustic backdrop for your wedding memories.
With the ocean right on hand, couples have the opportunity to shake things up a bit and host a Dolphin Coast wedding minus the coast, on one of the stylish yachts. A boat ride can also add a little diversity to your wedding album, as the odds of spotting a bottle nose are immediately raised once you set foot off the coast. The warm weather and water also sets the scene for ample beach time fun, providing guests with a variety of water sports and post-wedding entertainment to keep themselves busy. Should they grow tiresome of the beach however, the surrounding area is rich with entertainment possibilities.
Along with its pleasant climate and sunny days, this stretch of coast truly is the perfect year round wedding destination. Surfer couples choose one of these idyllic venues because “the waves are rad, bro” and the winter hardly ever shows itself in its full force, while nature lovers are simply intrigued by the many untouched nooks and crannies that set the scene for an idyllic Dolphin Coast wedding celebration.
