Having a Durban wedding is like hosting a California beach soiree right here in South Africa. Known for its spectacular beach front, swaying palm trees and warm and sunny climate all year round, the odds of cold weather wrecking your perfectly planned day, is just about zero.
Durban's wedding photo locations are as endless as the winding beach front. Whether you have your pictures taken on the beach itself, under a cliff or by a rock pool, or hop on a rickshaw and explore the city's many cultural nooks and crannies with the photographer at hand to capture it all – memories made in Durban are timeless. Bordered by a number of wild life reserves and game farms, bushveld romance can always be found within travelling distance.
With its main business sector located right at the centre of the city, most foot traffic and bustle is directed and restricted to the inner city area, creating tranquil spots all around – the ideal setting for the peaceful wedding every bride dreams of. Nevertheless the business district is still within close reach of all the main function and wedding venues, simplifying vendor transportation and cutting out any unnecessary headaches and crises.
The city is a bustling hive of cultural merriment with plenty of African drum performers, marimba bands, fire dancers and jazz bands to add flavour to your wedding day. Durban is of course famous for its curries and a Durban wedding isn’t a wedding without at least one mild to hot dish on the menu.
After the big celebration making your way to the honeymoon destination is simpler than anywhere else in the country as Durban's transportation system is something the city council pride themselves on. Meanwhile guests can relax on the sunny beach or pay a visit to local attractions like uShaka Marine World, the Durban Racecourse or one of the many botanical gardens and nature reserves. All in all, it’s no surprise why so many couples opt for a Durban wedding celebration. ...less
