Cathedral Peak Hotel – the ideal wedding destination for any season of the year

No adventure is greater than the one you start with the one you love. The perfect step-off point is the gracious elegance we offer you at the magnificent 4-star family-owned Cathedral Peak Hotel. Situated in a World Heritage Site, surrounded by the majestic Drakensberg Mountains, every season has something special to offer our Bridal couples.


Autumn is a popular time of year where our foliage turns to shades of burnt orange, hues of yellow and gold.  The Hotel gardens that are full of Aloe’s begin to flower and with the rains coming to an end you can expect beautiful warm sunny days with cooler evenings. Set amongst our beautiful gardens is our charming stone-and-thatch chapel with an expansive window behind the pulpit boasting breathtaking views of our main mountain range. This is definitely a very colorful season perfect for dreamy wedding pictures with Cathedral Peak Hotel, the Bell, and the Horns as your backdrop!


Winter can be ultra-glamorous and magical with the chance of having a winter wonderland wedding with snow-capped mountains. Log fires, thousands of fairy lights, and an abundance of candles create endless romance during the colder months. Our rich hearty wedding buffet menu, wine, port, and sherry selection are perfect for a winter wedding celebration. Winter brings with it a different kind of romance all on its own at Cathedral Peak Hotel!


Spring, the season of rebirth and new beginnings, is a beautiful time of year to tie the knot. Our gardens reawaken with blossoms and the mountains start to turn green and come alive with a rich abundance of flora and fauna.  The days are longer and warmer, perfect for drinks and canapes on the lawn or at our Swimming Pool Boma before entering the reception venue. Hire our helicopter for some unforgettable wedding photographs right in the mountains of Cathedral Peak Hotel!


Summer means lazy days full of bright sunshine, warmer temperatures, and incredible thunderstorms. The flowing rivers can be heard from the Hotel and the surrounding mountains are blanketed in bright green. The gardens are alive with blooming flowers and resident Bushbuck with their offspring. Longer days with warm nights mean longer celebrations and perhaps a few nightcaps at Harry’s Bar after the venue is closed.

At any time of year wedding, guests can also enjoy a vast array of activities at Cathedral Peak Hotel from a heated swimming pool to mountain bike trails, a jogging trail, squash and tennis courts, helicopter flips, horse rides, quad bike rides, a 9-hole golf course with alternative tees, gym, wellness center, daily guided hikes and so much more!
