Robben Island is looking for 20 couples to tie the knot on the 20th anniversary of Valentine's Day weddings in the island chapel.
The island museum and the home affairs department said registration is open for couples interested in getting married in style at the historic site.
The island said the former prison where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 of the 27 years he served behind bars, will be transformed into a lavish wedding venue with what's sure to be an amazing ambience on the day.
