2012-06-21 16:30
Cape Town is set to host a wedding of royal proportions as Hollywood A-listers are apparently getting set to tie the knot here later this year, Cape Town Tourism reports.

After meeting in the Mother City while filming 'Dark Tide' in 2010, Halle Berry and French actor fiance, Olivier Martinez are rumoured to be returning for their nuptials.

It's still unconfirmed by the couple themselves but reports have surfaced after a source told Star Magazine, "The wedding's going to be in Cape Town, because that's where they met and fell in love.

"They want to have the ceremony and reception on a huge yacht in False Bay. They're finalising a lot of the details now, like who's going to design the dress."

While in Cape Town Berry and Martinez visited local charity group the Indlovu Project in Khayelitsha and Berry was given an "African" name Thandeka meaning "the one who everyone loves".

With a slew of films having been filmed in recent years, might there be more Hollywood weddings on the way?
