Getting married is probably one of the biggest decisions a couple can make in their lives. And planning that day to perfection can also be one of the most stressful experiences. There are so many things to consider: the dress, the music, who sits with who (or not), the food, flowers and the all important venue.

The super sexy Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Cape Town is not only an appropriately glam choice for any celebration but it has a dedicated function space called – also rather appropriately – the Launch Pad, which looks out onto the breathtaking beauty of Table Mountain through large windows.

As a blank canvas, the Launch Pad is drenched in natural light during the day and lends itself perfectly to any kind of theme and décor imaginable.

With a décor company which has more than 20 years experience in this field on hand, choosing the perfect look has never been easier. The team at Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Cape Town has also recently discovered a florist who is at the forefront of wedding trends with her bouquets and table decorations. In fact, the team is more than capable of assisting the happy couple with most of the arrangements for the big day – including the church decor, venue setup, cake, transport, entertainment and more – leaving them with nothing more important to do than enjoy their magical day.

Keeping guests happily fed and watered is a cinch with a choice of eight different menus ranging in price from as little as R95 a head for canapés all the way up to a three course lunch or dinner buffet for parties of 30 or more.

The wedding is not only about the event itself but what comes before, and after. Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Cape Town has just opened its new spa where the bride and groom can indulge in a “Seduction In Cape Town” treatment – full body exfoliations, massages and facials – to make them feel even more beautiful ahead of the big day.

Once the toasts have been drunk, speeches made and festivities brought to a close, a blissful night is just a few short steps away… the “Seduction” package includes overnight accommodation including a pink feather-strewn “tickle me pink” turndown, complimentary bottle of Methode Cap Classique, breakfast in bed, Lindt chocolate milkshakes, and discount vouchers for dinner and the Hilton Spa Boutique (terms and conditions apply.) This package is also great for honeymoons and anniversaries.
