We offer a unique balance of a relaxed, romantic mood in an ideal setting with its elegant ambience in a Cape Dutch style, from our Silver beach to the Estuary with amazing views of the Ocean accompanied by rolling lawns.
Celebrate your marriage in our lovely chapel, our manicured lawn or leave your footprints on our beach. Cocktail weddings can be enjoyed under the stars with breathtaking views.
Our wedding co-ordinator Bronwyn, together with our trusted circle of service providers will take care of your dream day from start to finish.
Our Chapel is available for hire outside of our package deals on request.
We offer a variety of menu’s to choose from with the option of a customized menu to cater to your needs.
The service Providers of your choosing will do the set-up of your chairs and gazebo on the beach. The same would apply to your garden ceremony with the assistance of the Estuary Staff.
There is a complimentary 15-seater bus that will transport all your guests to and from the beach for your Ceremony.
The bus is also used to take the Bridal party to the beach for their creative photo shoot after the garden ceremony.
If your wedding venue is not being used the day before, we can make arrangements to allow a set up to be done on the day before your wedding. This is to be decided by the Estuary Management.
Please make sure that the service providers of your choice have contacted our wedding coordinator to discuss when set-up can take place.

WHAT IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO GET MARRIED? (WEATHER WISE)
While it is impossible to predict the weather on a day-to-day basis, we can tell you that generally, summer holds more rainfall than winter in this region. Winters are mild and mostly clear. November and December are quite rainy although there are beautiful sunny days too, and January and February are the hottest more humid months of the year on average. August and October are often windy months. April, May and June would be our safest options weather wise. The chapel will be set up as a backup should the weather conditions change. The use of the Chapel is included in the package.
The Estuary is responsible for the basic set up of your cutlery, crockery and glassware. We will set out the tables and chairs and all linen supplied but the Estuary.
Table decorations, flowers, nametags, guest favours etc. can be done with a prior arrangement between yourselves and the wedding coordinator.
It is the responsibility of the Décor Company or Bridal party to set up and clear up their personal item. (E.g.: flowers, tiebacks, overlays, ribbons, napkins, table favours etc.)
The decorations/draping must be cleared up on Sunday morning or latest Monday if there is no other event taking place on Sunday.
The Estuary Hotel & Spa is not held accountable for any losses or damages.
Service providers are not to be permitted to use our staff to the set-up of clear up unless arranged with the hotel at the additional labour costs.
