If you’re planning to get married in Cape Town, there are two things you have to decide – where to hold the ceremony and where to spend your wedding night. If a beach wedding appeals, then there is no better place than Long Beach in Kommetjie, with the stunning backdrop of Table Mountain, the Sentinel and Chapmans Peak.
As one of the most beautiful but least crowded beaches in Cape Town the only sound you will hear as you say your vows is the turquoise Atlantic water caressing the golden sand.
Kommetjie has become the hottest location in Cape Town in recent years due to its charm and unspoilt beauty – something which has become increasingly hard to find elsewhere, and this has made Long Beach a popular destination with some of the world’s best fashion photographers.
LXIX is a simply stunning thatched house on the beach, opposite the famous Sunset Reef, and the dunes in front of the house are the best spot on Long Beach for a wedding ceremony to be held.
The house has a huge 64 square metre living room with a double storey vaulted ceiling, and a large patio, so it could be the ideal location for your reception if you are inviting a modest number of people. There is a double garage for two cars and plenty of parking outside the house and in the nearby public car park.
As the house is on the top of a dune, your guests can sit in the shade and enjoy the stunning views from the large terrace, relax around the pool or step straight onto the beach at the perfect spot for your ceremony.
If you want somewhere really special for your first night, the huge master bedroom has a vaulted thatched ceiling and doors opening onto a large deck, so you can lie in bed and watch the waves breaking on the beach outside.
Finally, if you plan to have friends or relatives staying with you, the house is large enough to accommodate up to 8 people, and all the double rooms have wonderful sea views.
You only get married once (unless you’re my Father – four times), so make it the best day of your life!
