Today’s sunny wedding inspiration adds a natural bright burst of colour to this wonderfully rustic wedding venue backdrop – think along the lines of unspoilt rural Spain or the laid-back vineyards of Cali.

Real Wedding – Luxury Safari Wedding In South Africa

13/05/2015 |

Getting Married Abroad Blog 32

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.
