African Safari Wedding Ideas

Away from busy streets of a tourist city, there is one truly exceptional place that makes you want to stop the time and enjoy the moments of tremendous experience. It is the residence of Ms. Bubbles – a gorgeous African elephant with the big ears, big trunk, big feet, and also with a big heart.

Elephants in many countries around the world symbolize patience, wisdom, longevity, the power of family and happiness. Those are important ingredients to every recipe of happy marriage. All beautifully photographed by Pasha Belman Photography. See so many more African Safari Wedding Ideas in the full gallery.

The vision that the vendors collaboratively had about the shoot was to create simple but at the same time original in design wedding inspiration of mostly earthy tones and elements, with slight color accents of soft orange, light blue and turquoise. The bride looked stunning in her off-white wedding gown during the ceremony part of the shoot. The dress was very simple with just an accent piece on her waist.

The bride changed into less formal gown for the relaxed after-the-ceremony part of the shoot. Soft off-white tones of her gowns helped stylists to achieve natural simplicity that they had in mind. Her hand-made hairpieces with natural elements such as feathers and leaves and elegant jewelry with rustic metallic accents became the key elements to the bride’s looks. Her gorgeous hair definitely added a pop of color to the photos. Braiding was essential in providing more authentic look. Our hair stylist wanted to add a little wild touch to her hair and emphasize the wildness of safari experience. She also added a touch of tribal character to the bride’s make-up, which made her look quite unique. A little pop of color on the lips – and the look is complete.

The floral design was quite unique in nature. Bride’s bouquet had bamboo handle with dry natural element symbolizing the dryness of safari desert and with long feathers representing the wild side of the safari love affair. Freshly cut bamboo accents helped to form a structure for the altar. Palm leaves and candles created cozy atmosphere during the ceremony. Elegantly decorated bamboo chairs and the dinner table covered with animal print linens became a perfect setting for the romance.
