An Intimate Bushveld Wedding At Rhulani Safari Lodge
Dreaming of having an intimate bushveld wedding? Here is all the inspiration you’ll need. Caroline traded in her heels for a pair of vellies and her veil for a bush hat and had their elopement their way. No flashy traditional wedding but something that would mean the world to their new little family.
The Proposal As Told By The Bride
“Michael proposed in 2019, in the snow in Austria, and it was the most magical day of my life. I really didn’t think anything could top that moment, but I was wrong! We’re a travel couple (@livingbreathlessly) who are obsessed with the nature and wildlife. We make it our mission to visit as many beautiful lodges around South Africa as much as possible throughout the year which also fuels Michaels passion for Wildlife Photography.”
The Wedding Venue
“We decided to tie the knot in April 2022 at Rhulani Safari Lodge in the Madikwe Game Reserve, with our boys; Mason and Owen. We had a guide for the weekend, Alasdair, who constantly had us in stitches, and our incredible photographer, Andrew Morgan, joined in every moment shared.
Intimate Wedding Ceremony
“The ceremony performed by our sons, was perfection and love personified, and made our day even more special. I had no idea just how perfect something this simple would turn out to be, and how much of a fairytale wedding this day would become.”
Bridal Couple Shoot
“We shared our vows close to a huge Jackalberry tree right in the middle of nature; elephants and zebras passing by as we did so. We were showered by a light drizzle just as we kissed at the end of our ceremony, followed by a beautiful rainbow.”
Time for some Bubbly
“We popped some champagne and ate some donuts to celebrate and then took beautiful sunset photos to remember this distinctive moment forever. Shadowed by two rhinos who seemed curious about my white dress and kept edging closer.”
Intimate Family Wedding Reception
“Nothing could beat how authentic and charming this day was for us. From how natural and real the proceedings were to the raw beauty and sounds of our surroundings. Most people dream of visiting Africa just once in their lives, we are so fortunate that we get to live for moments like these in Africa.”
