A whimsical wedding at Zolewa in Plettenberg Bay takes the cake

If you are looking for a little bit of old, a little bit of new, a little bit of blue and a little bit of borrowed in your wedding venue – Zolewa in Plett may be your perfect fit.


Zolewa means EVERY WHERE SHE GOES STORMS WILL CALM. True to their word, the magic of the beautifully appointed Zolewa venue, was inspiring and evoked a sense of calmness during this stunning shoot – not even the rain could cause a stir during our time there.

Zolewa hosts all types of celebrations, from intimate tea parties, luncheons, to beautiful wedding celebrations. In addition to its eclectic venue, they also offer accommodation for the bridal retinue – bedrooms with expansive mountain views, a tranquil garden with an old-fashioned wraparound patio. The perfect opportunity for any bride to sit back quietly and relax the morning through while preparing the final details for the wedding day.

Zolewa offers an opportunity to gather family and friends together in a natural environment with an expanse of beautiful indigenous fynbos and flora to create a spectacular flow for a happy and relaxed environment.
