A Safari Wedding on the plains of Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve

We had the privilege of capturing a safari elopement in the heart of the wilderness of Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve. It was a day filled with laughter, celebration, and the most beautiful skies we, as photographers, could wish for.

Upon Arrival: Herds Roaming the Plains

Upon our arrival at Selati Camp, a beautiful sight awaited us – the plains in front of the lodge were brimming with activity as herds of zebra, blue wildebeest, and impala came down to the waterhole to quench their thirst in the heat. It was a beautiful scene and a good start to the day.

Preparation in Style

As the bride and groom prepared in their luxury suites, there was a calm, yet exciting feeling in the air. February is one of the hottest summer months in the bush… thank goodness for air conditioning! Cold drinks were served and a scrumptious lunch was served while the anticipation was building. There were so many laughs as the make-up artist and hairdresser worked their magic.

Saying “I Do” Under the Shade of Mahogany

The best place to have a ceremony in the bush on a hot day is in under the canopy of a beautiful Mahogany tree along a tranquil riverbed. This is where the couple exchanged vows, sealing their love beneath the African sky. It was a moment of pure magic, captured amidst the serene beauty of nature.

The Skies and the Open Plains

As the day progressed, the sky transformed, painting a canvas of ever-changing hues that only added to this special day. The light was truly beautiful. We could not have asked for more perfect lighting conditions. We concluded the shoot on the open plains, a typical African savanna scene to end a special safari elopement.

Conclusion: Capturing Love in the Wild

As safari wedding photographers and videographers, our day at Sabi Sabi was more than just capturing images – it was about capturing moments and memories against the backdrop of the African bush, something that the couple can look back on for many years to come and remember their special safari elopement in the bush.
