Best Places to Propose in Cape Town

Best places to propose in Cape Town


Cape Town is not just renowned for world class weddings, it is also a very popular choice for those ready to pop the big question.  Whether your dream proposal includes a helicopter flip or a quiet picnic in one of Cape Town’s beautiful gardens or forests, we can help you plan all the details.

The first thing to do is pick the perfect spot, so we have compiled a short list to help you get started.

Propose on a winefarm

You are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a wine farm for your proposal.  You could choose to follow your tastebuds and pick a farm that produces your favourite wine or choose an area and narrow it down from there.  With wineries in both the Southern and Northern Suburbs and stretching out towards Stellenbosch and Franshhoek, you are sure to find the right location.  We recently planned a proposal that took place at Lothian House in the Elgin Valley, which included a helicopter flight from the V&A Waterfront.  See more here.

Propose at the beach

To stand on a stretch of beach with Table Mountain as your backdrop is pretty spectacular!  It’s a timeless image that captures the beauty and romance of the city.

Propose with a picnic in the park

Take a stroll through Tokai Forest or Kirstenbosch Gardens and arrive at your pre-planned picnic spot where you drop on one knee.  A gourmet picnic basket has been prepared along with a bottle of bubbly and a photographer waiting to capture the moment.

Propose on Table Mountain

What can be more perfect than a cable car ride to the top of Table Mountain to ask the ‘big question’.

Propose at a 5 star restaurant

Cape Town boasts a number of restaurants with insanely romantic views of beaches, mountains or vineyards.  Let us help you choose the best spot.  See the proposal we planned for a very special couple at Twelve Apostles here.
