"Love consists in this, that two solitudes protect and touch
and greet each other."
(Rainer Maria Rilke )
The destination you have chosen in marriage, is to nurture this
love, to be each other’s best friend, confidant, critic, lover and
listener. Marriage is about affirmation, about nurturing new
life, sharing experiences and finding new ways of expressing
your love through all the seasons of your life. You are now
seeking a legal framework for your union and a ceremony to
initiate your marriage in Cape Town, South Africa.
Your outer destination, Cape Town, has it all: Table Mountain,
whale watching, stunning beaches, the Cape of Good Hope
Nature Reserve, the Winelands. No wonder love-struck
couples flock to this city and have their wedding bells ring
My name is Walter Schwär. I am an ordained minister and
have 15 years of experience in ministries in Bloemfontein and
Cape Town. As a fully licensed marriage officer, I will secure
all the necessary documentation to have your marriage legally
When you arrive in Cape Town we can meet, get to know each
other a little, and together find a way of expressing the
significance of your marriage in way that you are comfortable
with – be this in words (English, German or Afrikaans), vows,
an exchange of rings or blessings.
If required, I can also advise and assist you with some of the
practicalities such as venue, music, flowers, but also secure
for you a photographer, styling, car hire, accommodation, etc.
Come to Cape Town, experience its beauty, its nature and
make your overseas wedding memorable. Yes, I do in Cape
