Omar & Valentina’s Safari Wedding | Thornybush Game Reserve

It’s a highlight for us whenever we receive an enquiry for a safari wedding, and when the booking is confirmed we (*virtually I should add) book out a hotel room, order lobster tails and wash it down with bottles of french champagne to celebrate. It’s the South African bushveld, wildlife, photographing beautiful happy people, great food, and the sound of crested francolins in the morning; basically everything we love rolled into a single event. Add an energetic Latin American guest list and suddenly the exotic factor is turned up a notch. Perfecto!

Here’s a quick summary of the event in photographs.

Day 1 : Arrival of guests, eating birthday cake, game drive and bushveld dinner


Day 2: Wedding day! Game drive, getting ready, safari wedding, happiness, and a kick-ass party!

Venue: Thornybush Game Lodge
