The Perfect Event

The Form offers bridal couples the opportunity to create an individual statement with a wedding that exudes elegance and its own style. This exclusive venue caters for intimate weddings, for 50 to 150 guests, and only hosts six weddings per year, at a maximum of one wedding per month, depending on availability. The exclusive accommodation, with personalised butler-style service, in this world-class setting meets the expectations of the most discerning guests, visiting dignitaries and celebrities.

A professional team co-ordinates the bridal couple’s special requirements with great attention to detail and emphasis on quality rather than quantity. The team further offers tailor-made packages upon request to ensure a dreamlike day. Pre-wedding drinks, the night before the special day, may be hosted at Ginja, at the Victoria & Alfred Hotel, where views over the working harbour and Table Mountain can be absorbed.
