What Makes A Safari Wedding So Special

Why celebrate for just one day when, in fact, your wedding could be a whole weekend of enjoying yourself with friends and family? This is just one aspect of what makes a safari wedding so unique and special; long days spent with people you love in a beautiful place celebrating the start of a new life.

The Magic of Africa

Imagine saying “I do” under the soft shade of a Marula Tree , overlooking a dry riverbed with just the birdsong as a background chorus. Exchanging vows in a place that is so deeply connected to the earth and to nature is an incredible experience and creates magic not just for the wedding couple, but for all their guests too.

Thornybush has a number of incredibly beautiful wedding ceremony sites for couples to choose from, creating an evocative venue in a wild landscape surrounded by untamed Africa. Then, when the ceremony is over, you have the joy of returning to a luxury lodge for the reception, where no detail has been overlooked and where the setting perfectly complements the occasion.

Sit Back and Relax

Weddings usually mean huge amounts of planning and organisation, but we can help alleviate this stress from the bride. With years of experience and expertise we can run the entire wedding for you, helping organise all the logistical concerns and give guidance on decor ideas.  

Florists, marriage officers, photographers, make-up artists, DJ’s, cakes and so much more; we have a list of reliable and reputable suppliers who will come to the lodge and create all the magic for you on your special day. 

We are in the hospitality business and making sure guests have an enjoyable experience is what we do best – which is why we create such memorable weddings. 

Make A Weekend of It

What could be better than combining a big 5 safari with a beautiful wedding and making it last for a whole weekend? With more time to share experiences you can surprise your guests with a bush dinner, or special champagne sundowner the night before the big day. 

The morning of your wedding you can still jump on a game drive and enjoy all of nature’s wonders, before heading back to get ready for the ceremony. There are not many wedding venues that allow for watching elephants in the morning and dancing under the stars that night.

Say “I Do”

So let us start the journey together, we can make one of the most special days of your life even more extraordinary. Get in touch to find out more about our wedding packages. (email: weddings@thornybush.com)
