Outside Wedding Ceremony

“The open-air ceremony was a breathtaking fusion of tradition and natural beauty. As the nuptials commenced, a herd of springboks appeared, adding a touch of magic to the already enchanting atmosphere. Nathan honored his Jewish heritage by breaking the glass, followed by jubilant shouts of “Mazel tov” from the guests. It was a celebration of love, tradition, and the harmony of nature.” – Amy Hayton, Luminary Photography

The Wedding Portraits

“Ascending to the viewpoint in a game drive vehicle, Nathan and Abigail celebrated with bubbly in the enchanting glow of the golden hour. On our way to join the festivities, we encountered wildebeest and giraffes. Adding a touch of untamed wonder to their perfect session. This portrait session was a harmonious blend of elegance and untamed nature. Resulting in a collection of truly captivating images.” – Amy Hayton, Luminary Photography

“Nathan wanted to be out in Nature and Abigail wished for a boho flair with the elegance of a white wedding. Deurieblare made the magic happen and creatively harmonized all that they wanted. A ceiling covered with greenery, green walls, and floating orchids, the tables were adorned with the most divine aromatic roses and yuka flowers dancing between an array of floating candles. Guest favors and stationery were handmade by the bride’s mom.” – Amy Hayton, Luminary Photography
