Photographer:   Kibogo Photography

 

Carnjini is originally from Malaysia and Lyadi from Kenya; having met whilst studying in Australia they recently moved and now have the pleasure of calling Kenya their home.

 

With friends and family spread all over the globe they decided to invite their nearest and dearest to discover this picturesque part of the world with a destination wedding beside the sapphire-blue Lake Elmenteita of the luxury safari Serena Camp in Kenya.

 

They wowed their guests with an outdoor ceremony overlooking the lake and surrounded purely by nature before celebrating their nuptials with a reception out in the wild, lit by lanterns and under canvas in the Kenyan bush.

 

Carnjini rocked two stunning wedding dresses on her special day, looking oh-so-elegant in a long sleeved lace number before putting on her party piece – a sweetheart neck lined ruffled dress, perfect for the styling out some moves on the dance floor!

 

Kibogo Photography were on hand to capture this magical, chic and truly unique safari camp destination wedding…

Real Wedding – Luxury Safari Wedding In South Africa

Janna & Nolen   ♥   Limpopo Provence, South Africa

Photographer:   Sarah Marie Photos

 

Camp Jabulani is a family owned private safari lodge set within the wilderness of the Kapama Game Reserve in South Africa. The camp began as a home for an orphaned elephant (that was given the name Jabulani), along with a herd of rescued elephants from Zimbabwe.

 

Jabulani meaning “to rejoice” was the logical namesake for the camp that was to become an extraordinary African experience where visitors could interact with the family of elephants as well as experiencing the big game territory surrounding the lodge.

 

Janna and Nolen chose this astonishing luxury lodge for their intimate nuptials and what an incredible day they had! Their wild and free wedding took place in the African bush, completely at one with nature and surrounded by the elephants.

 

Janna looked absolutely enchanting in her vintage-inspired BHLDN gown as she gracefully walked barefoot towards her groom. After the ceremony she donned a swooshing tassel dress – perfectly fitting for a sunset celebration in the outback.

Tami & Alan   ♥   Marrakech, Morocco

Photographer:   Andreas Holm

 

Today’s real bride Tami envisaged ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ theme for her and her hubby-to-be’s wedding in Marrakech…and it certainly turned out dreamy!

 

Tami and her bridesmaids wore delicate Temperley gowns as they walked down the aisle lined with olive trees and candles, before the wedding party moved on to enjoy a night under the stars in a gorgeous garden setting. 

 

Tami says:

“Apart from chosing the wine, all the planning was done between myself and my wedding planners Rosena and Fred from Boutique Souk.  The highlight was walking down the aisle with my Dad, seeing Alan at the front, all our friends and family and my little boy.  I was amazed at how the church had been transformed by Boutique Souk into my dream, full of olive trees and candles!”

Boutique Souk says:

“English bride, Tami had her heart set on a Midsummer’s Night Dream styled wedding and chose magical Marrakech for its lush garden settings and warm climate so the reception could take place under the stars. Tami and Groom Alan, chose an exotic palm and olive grove setting with a Moroccan tented afterparty for the reception. The ceremony was celebrated at the Catholic Church of Marrakech.”

Lisa & Alex   ♥   Marrakech, Morocco

You Mean The World To Me

Lisa and Alex (also known as 2People1Life) are wedding their way around the world in a real wedding adventure, getting hitched in every country that they visit. Read part one and part two of their journey so far.

Nuptials number 45 took them to the magical myriad of maze-like streets that make up the medina of Marrakech, Morocco.

 

The wedding and concierge experts at Boutique Souk arranged a hidden gem of a Riad as the location for this magnificent marriage ceremony. Upon the romantic rooftop of this hideaway hotel, Alex and Lisa said ‘I do’ for the 45th time, with the smell of fragrant roses filling the air and the sun setting over the Atlas Mountains leaving the intense hustle and bustle of the bazaar far below.

 

Be enchanted by this mystical Morocco marriage, captured perfectly by Bohemian Weddings

Michael and Andrea from Bohemian Weddings talk us through the story:

“After spending some time with Alex and Lisa travelling in Morocco we are now more than happy to call them our good friends. To explain to anyone who does not know the journey they are on, this was not your usual wedding country, venue or couple. We went through a lot together in 8 days, but for now we want to share a beautiful setting that for them was wedding number 45.”

 

“We spent a few days in Essaouira together which gave us a chance to really get to know each other. We then drove from the coast in to Marrakech. The wedding was organised by Boutique Souk at Riad El Fenn, a real oasis in the middle of the Medina, with open spaces, palm trees, pools, spas and wild tortoises!”

 

“After having some fun getting ready in traditional wedding clothing the ceremony was held at sunset on the rooftop with the Medina and beautiful Atlas mountains as a backdrop. Atlas rose lollypops were used as a central place to hold the ceremony and a headscarf was purchased from the market last minute to finish off Lisa’s look.”

 

“After the ceremony Alex and Lisa braved one of the craziest market squares in Africa in full traditional dress! We were all apprehensive but we were met with great reactions from the locals ululating and asking excitedly if Alex and Lisa had just got married. We look forward to sharing more of our journey together in the near future.”
