Can you imagine anything more romantic than getting married in Africa? The continent’s rich history, celebrated culture, stunning landscape, and unparalleled hospitality are just a few of the reasons we’re totally on board! Today’s elopement inspiration comes to us by way of South African event planner, Nu Experiences. With a goal to showcase a luxurious experience in a remote African setting (hello, glamping!), we’re seriously smitten with all the boho statements and diverse details of the day.
Nu tells us, The aim of this shoot was to show case a realistic and inspirational setting for the adventurous couples out there who’s hearts have been stolen by the African sun, and who desire to elope in Africa.
The team gathered on a windy day with Charlene Schreuder Photography and pulled off an elopement for the wild at heart. Let’s venture on, toward the African sun!
The day took place at Cherry Glamping in Eglin Valley, an hour from Cape Town. Glamping in Africa?! Heck yes! The property features fully furnished seats, community-style dining, and wine tasting for the experience of a lifetime.
The Ceremony Set Up
YES to all these textures and textiles: a mix of vintage, boho, and the most stunning African landscape!
Bride + Groom Style
A round of applause for his groom style! Cool and classic, with a cream jacket and sand-colored pants – DIG IT. The leather accents are the perfect touch!
Those RINGS! The bespoke pieces are by South African design studio, Scarab Jewllery.
Lounge with a view, anyone?
We’re loving all the tabletop details! Traditional African textiles and these geometric escort cards by Bree Creatives make for elevated safari-style dining.
How beautiful are those hand-painted proteas? The Bake Town Cakery created this little masterpiece for the day!
Such a stunning palette of florals by 4 Every Event — and the stems are wrapped in macrame!
Gah, look at those hills! Such a stunning location! If you’re thinking of eloping in Africa, feel free to invite us along :) Thanks to the team of creatives for sharing the day with us!
