Tag: Lake Wedding
You’ve got to love a lakeside wedding; all that fresh air, being outdoors at one with nature and the incredible waterside views, it certainly delivers a wildly romantic setting for saying “I Do”.
The talented team behind today’s styled shoot wanted to set a wedding scene that enhanced, rather than over took, their chosen lakeside lodge location. The beauty of exceptional wedding venues such as these is that they need less dressing and so when it comes to choosing your wedding pretty, be sure that is sympathetic to the surroundings and it will simply add flair to the existing scene without being overpowering.
So here’s Tana Photography to tell you more about this luxurious lakeside lodge wedding theme….
Carnjini & Lyadi ♥ Kenya, Africa
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!

Andrea & John ♥ Minnesota, USA
Photographer: Mad Chicken Studio
Happy Thanksgiving! To join in the festivities being celebrated across the pond in the US today, I thought I’d share an American wedding.
Today we are jetting off to Lake Superior in Minnesota for a wedding that is nothing short of magical. Andrea and John planned a whole weekend of fun beside the lake for their wedding guests – a true destination wedding enabling their nearest and dearest to get away together and soak up some quality time as one in a breathtaking location.
On the morning of their wedding mist engulfed the shoreline of the world’s largest freshwater lake – only adding to the already romantic and ethereal atmosphere surrounding the rustic lodgings!
Not only did I feel that this destination wedding was fitting for Thanksgiving since it took place in the US, but the stationery suite that this darling duo used for their waterside wedding really jumped out at me, especially the gratitude expressed in the card that was laid on each table place setting.
The words read as follows:
To our friends and family, thank you. For being part of our happily ever after, for sharing the first day of our new life together. It means the world to us that you all have travelled so far to celebrate with us this weekend. Thank you for being our encouragement, our mentors, the ones we lean on, and our partners in crime, for loving us through the ups and downs in life. You have helped make us who we are and for that we are forever grateful. So please enjoy today, you are our favourite people and we’re so glad to have you join us on our first day as husband and wife. Thank you for sharing in today’s celebration and those we’ll share in the years to come. We love you.
Isn’t that what thanksgiving is all about! Being so grateful for everything and everyone that you have in life, focusing on what you have instead of what you have not. I’m sure these words will resonate with you as they did me. Happy Thanksgiving everyone x
Hannah & Gareth ♥ Lake Garda, Italy
If there’s one location that delivers destination weddings with a generous side order of romance, it’s Italy. Big time. Every time.
Gareth and Hannah married on a beautifully blue-skied day in May, in Gardone Riviera, an intimate lakeside resort on the luscious Lake Garda in Italy. They eloped from Stafford in the UK to tie the knot, just the two of them, surrounded by breathtaking beauty and bathed in glorious sunshine – pure romantic bliss.
Together, they got ready for their dreamy day ahead, quietly enjoying their rustic chic B&B with wonderful views over the water, before being whisked off to their Town Hall ceremony on a tuk-tuk! Their talented photographer then took them on a walking tour of the historical town, capturing the precious first moments as excited newlyweds and soaking up the stunning views.
So if you’re thinking of eloping, I’m quite sure this intimate Italian lake elopement might just make up your mind!
