A wedding to cherish forever
You only get one chance to create the wedding of your dreams – which is why it’s important to choose the right location and the right wedding coordinator.
The Overberg’s magnificent ocean and mountain backdrop, coupled with the style, charm and professionalism of The Marine, ensure that your big day will be truly memorable. Our event coordinators are passionate experts in dreaming up bespoke weddings and will gladly assist you in creating a wedding day that is absolutely unique and special. With that belief in mind, we design a wedding experience around four elements: exceptional service, unique setting, world-class cuisine and exquisite accommodation.
Leave all the details to us
At The Marine we celebrate the culture of impeccable hospitality, and extend a warm welcome to all who cross our threshold.
While attention to detail is of the utmost importance, the service delivered by our team is intuitive and never obtrusive.
We will attend to all the finer details: from making sure you are comfortable and well looked after, to the details of the ceremony and the smooth rollout of the reception.
Say ‘I do’ amidst a mesmerising ocean setting
Our property is perched on rugged, ocean-hewn cliffs overlooking Walker Bay in Hermanus – South Africa’s most pristine whale sanctuary. Guests can enjoy year-round Marine life, with whales visiting the bay between June and December. The views from The Marine are pure magic, with a cliff path leading straight from the hotel to the beach below. Within this spectacular setting we offer a variety of beautiful indoor and outdoor locations for you to say ‘I do’.
World-Class Cuisine & Wine
All your culinary requests taken care of
Our Executive Chef, Peter Tempelhoff, oversees all of the restaurants in The Liz McGrath Collection. At The Marine, our Head Chef will meet directly with the bridal couple prior to their wedding day, to ensure the creation of a personalised set menu according to the couple’s wishes. This can take the shape of anything you wish, from a fine-dining reception dinner to a champagne breakfast or relaxed lunch.
The most delightful accommodation for your wedding party
With 40 individually decorated bedrooms and suites, there’s something to suit everyone in your wedding party, including those travelling as a family. For the bridal couple we recommend our magnificent Honeymoon Suite, featuring large bay windows in the lounge area overlooking the ocean, and a loft bedroom with views of the gardens towards the sea.
