Stellenbosch – Wedding Photography

Stellenbosch, just an hours drive from Cape Town is at the heart of the Cape Winelands.  It’s not hard to see why it is such a popular destination for wedding photography.

If you could imagine your bridal photoshoot with a backdrop of dramatic mountain peaks, lakes, rolling vineyards and historical buildings, then Stellenbosch has them all!  The opportunities are endless.

Throw in a couple of estates offering world class wines as well as a few gastronomical delights and you have the perfect wedding venue.

The great thing about having a wedding photoshoot in Stellenbosch, is that it’s beautiful all year round  In summer when the days are long and lazy, your guests are able to be outside enjoying the glorious weather and taking in the spectacular sunsets.    In winter, the landscape is dramatic and when things get a little chilly, everyone can gather around a roaring fireplace.  In Springtime, the blossoms are out and make for really romantic wedding photos.  But our all time favourite time of year in Stellenbosch is definitely Autumn.  The vines change hues almost daily, and most evenings have a glorious pink glow.  Have a look at this Autumn or “Fall” wedding at 401 Rozendal for some beautiful vineyard scenery.

Many of the Stellenbosch venues such as Landtscap are elevated on the hillside and offer three sixty views of the surroundings.  If it’s a lakeside setting you are after, another of our favourite places for a wedding photo shoot is Webersburg Wine Estate.  You get the added bonus of beautiful mountain views too.

Some estates such as Zorgvliet have a wedding chapel on site.  Guests do not have to drive around on your special day as everything happens in one place.  Or if you prefer a more earthy, outdoor vibe, why not have an outdoor forest ceremony at a venue such as Winery Road Forest.

We could wax lyrical about how gorgeous Stellenbosch is for wedding photography, but we hope our images tell a story of their own.  We are blessed to live exactly half way between Cape Town and Stellenbosch, so it’s just a stone’s throw away from our home.  If you are still in need of a wedding photographer for your Stellenbosch wedding, do have a look at our wedding photography packages.  Alternatively, you are welcome to get in touch via our contact sheet.

Our first 401 Rozendal wedding in a very long time! It was so good to be back at this beautiful Stellenbosch wedding venue! And a more lovely wedding day and fabulous couple we could not have asked for!

Webersburg Wine Estate Wedding

This Webersburg Wine Estate wedding took place in the nick of time! Only a short while later and South Africa was put on the red list by the UK government.

Intimate Wedding Fransmanshuijs

Kerry-Ann and Francois’ intimate wedding at Fransmanshuijs was a real treat. We’ve definitely seen a shift in wedding trends with a lot of couples opting for micro weddings.

Landtscap Wedding

Our first Landtscap wedding! What an incredible venue. A more apt name there could not be for a wedding venue. The scenery and views are magnificent.

Neethlingshof Wedding

Kirsten & Jaun’s Neethlingshof wedding was simply beautiful! It was good to be back after some years, and when you have such a gorgeous couple, it’s an added bonus.

Zorgvliet Wine Estate wedding

We have not shot a Zorgvliet wine estate wedding in ages. So when Kelley & Andre booked us, we were super excited to be back!

Weltevreden Estate Wedding

This was our first time shooting a Weltevreden Estate Wedding. And we really hope it’s not our last. Tucked away in an almost residential part of Stellenbosch is this gem of a place.

Quoin Rock Surprise Proposal

What an honour being part of Stelbe & Lucas Quoin Rock surprise proposal shoot. It was so exciting to be able to create magic memories for the two of them.

Zarose Venue Wedding
