South Africa has become the fifth country in the world, and the first in Africa, to allow legal marriages between same-sex couple.

South Africa is the perfect place to celebrate your same sex union. Imagine getting married on a beach watching the sunset or maybe you say your vows on top of Table Mountain in one of the world’s premier gay capitals - Cape Town.
