Location

The wedding festivities will be split between Cape Town and the wine region of Stellenbosch which is located a mere 50km away from Cape Town.

Cape Town is an area considered one of the most beautiful in Africa and by Shawn as one of the top 5 cities in the world. The paternal presence of Table Mountain, the pristine coastline with its white sandy beaches, the magnificent countryside with its bountiful rivers, vleis and dams, and the unique flora kingdom, together with the warm summer climate and friendly community, makes it  perfect for any vacation and an amazing backdrop for our wedding.

Stellenbosch is the second-oldest and undoubtedly the most scenically attractive and historically preserved town in southern Africa. There is a small-town atmosphere and leisurely lifestyle surrounded by nature’s bounty. The mild weather and unique terrain is ideal for wine-growing and the region has amassed many international awards over the years.

Asara Wine Estate, first founded in 1691 will be host to Shawn and Tatiana’s wedding. Situated in one of the most beautiful settings in the country, Asara is ideally positioned, backed by mountains, overlooking a lake with a sweeping view of vines and the valley that lies below.  Although close to Cape Town for our guest’s convenience, the idyllic surrounds and serenity of the culture will  lulls everyone into a place of perfect place of peace.
