A Vintage Safari Wedding With Soft Creams & Pink Protea

Bride and Groom kissing in sunlit field at a safari wedding

This Safari Wedding styled shoot takes inspiration from old movies; Out of Africa and King Solomon’s Mines. Because with the simple clean look of the crisp cream and beige linens it is the epitome of African romance.

The treehouse at the Deerpark

The  Deer Park with its beautiful grounds, authentic treehouse and relaxed atmosphere was the perfect location to recreate a romantic, vintage safari wedding.

For that vintage safari feel the bride wore a beautiful vintage style ivory dress from Isabelle Montagu, With a drop waist sash, drop back and lace detailing across the neckline and shoulders. Similarly, the Groom wore a light coloured outfit. This consisted of a cotton shirt, stone-coloured trousers, brown waistcoat, stone-coloured jacket and Panama style hat from Monsieur Mojo.

This tablescape consisted of stunning rattan chargers as well as elegant white Jasper Conran plates. I also used wooden cutlery which came from Zara and Marks & Spencer Loire Crystal glasses. Resulting in a luxurious but modern feel to the whole table setting.

I absolutely love this shoot. It perfectly illustrates that whatever your passion or interests. Location need not be a barrier to bring your wedding dreams to reality. Even a safari wedding theme in the Devonshire countryside.
