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 Deer Park with its beautiful grounds, authentic treehouse and relaxed atmosphere was the perfect location to recreate a romantic, vintage safari wedding.
A Safari Wedding With Vintage Details
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.
The amazing, Natalie Nichols, swept our bride’s locks into an elegant up-do to show off her beautiful dress. Whilst Jai Prettejohn created her make-up.
An Outdoor Table Setting
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.
Lighthouse Interiors made the chocolate coloured cotton napkins bespoke. They were an amazing find on Etsy.
Hip-hip Hooray designed the stationery, to fit in the with the theme. And gorgeous wooden African animals adorned the table for that African feel. They were from my own from holiday to Kenya.
Attention To The Details
Claire Arscott Cake Design designed the cake that sat on a wicker table. She drew her inspiration from the texture and design of the wicker furniture.
Keeping It Vintage supplied the large wicker chairs. As well as the trunks and Soda Cypher to complete the look. And the Couple used them to sit on for the evening sundowners after a day’s safari.
Romance in the Afternoon Sunshine
Sophie Millington created amazing and beautiful flowers for us. She interpreted the brief and the theme beautifully, using white stocks, waxflower, protea, eucalyptus as well as white scabiosa and cream spray roses. Perfectly utilising the colours of the shoot.
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.
