There’s nothing quite like a sun-drenched wedding on the beach. Romantic, fun, fantastic. From 2 guests to 200 guests, Die Strandloper is here to give you the wedding experience of a lifetime.
PLANNING YOUR WEDDING ON THE BEACH
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
You have the option of either a lunch or dinner sitting for your wedding. We’d love you to have a great time so we’ve put together a lists of things to think about when planning your event.
Lunch weddings are best when the weather is not too hot and where guests would like to return to Cape Town the same day.
Evening weddings are great for mellow sunsets and where your guests would prefer staying over in the nearby town of Langebaan.
We have a selection of charming B&B and honeymoon accommodation suggestions.
Should you require a private/exclusive wedding booking, our functions co-ordinator will explain the requirements to you. Depending on the size of your group a venue hire may or may not be charged.
We are an open-air restaurant and cannot operate during inclement weather. This is a risk you need to be aware of. To minimise the chances of it raining at your wedding we only take bookings over the summer months and peripheral periods.
You are free to decorate Die Strandloper within reason. Simpler is better as the restaurant already carries a magnificent charm of its own. It’s best to work within the parameters of the restaurant décor as is – trying to turn the restaurant into something it is not simply doesn’t work. Try sticking to the rustic beach theme. Should you require the services of a décor specialist, we are more than happy to put you in touch with a service provider in the area.
You are more than welcome to make use of our floral arch, designed to compliment our existing look & feel. However, you are free to create your own archway should you want to.
We can book a minister for you, alternatively you are welcome to organise your own minister.
Book your own photographer or ask us for some outstanding recommendations.
We have a fully licenced Beach Bar. You are also welcome to bring your own drinks – we do not charge a corkage fee. We do not have electric fridges so please bring your own ice to keep your drinks cold.
Should you be bringing your own drinks but require us to have our bar open as well, there is a R500-00 surcharge for us to operate our Beach Bar.
Our bar is licenced until midnight. Last rounds will be called strictly at 11.30pm.
Our rate includes our regular Strandloper guitarist. Should you have the restaurant booked privately for your wedding, you are welcome to organise your own music. We do not have electricity and any music service provider you use would need to bring along a generator for power. It is highly recommended that any musicians or DJs meet with us to become familiar with the restaurant before your wedding. If you have not booked the restaurant privately, you are unfortunately not allowed to bring your own music or entertainment.
