Well what a Wedding and what a location!!
This stunning affair took place on a private game reserve just north of Modimolle, the farm belongs to Claire's parents however Claire and James now reside in the UK and the Wedding was a destination and a holiday retreat for all their guests who traveled from all corners of the globe to celebrate with them.
With just the landscape and wild animals to work with we brought in everything necessary for the Wedding... Water, power, kitchens, toilets the lot!!
See the slideshow below of the progression of set up.... (these are images from my own phone - not professional!)
We had some challenges along the way as the location was highly remote and my suppliers had to conquer 50K of bumpy dirt roads before reaching the reserve, we also needed to make sure the monkeys didn't have a little party within the stretch tents during the nights as we had a 3 day set up!!!
Within the game reserve their Ceremony and Reception locations were a 15minute drive apart and this gave their guests a chance of seeing some splendid wild animals on their journey, and with a Marimba Band for the Ceremony they offered their guests the ultimate African Wedding experience too.
Claire and James opted for beige stretch tents to blend into the scenery and minimal decor as the view was so magnificent... Claire and James' one request was to make sure the main table faced the mountains with the open side of the tent in front of them and walked into the reception as the sunset behind them... so romantic.
''Tasha and her team were with us from engagement to wedding and imminently in hand to provide advice, respond to queries and to organise our wedding day from start to finish. Our’s was a destination wedding and required a high level or coordination and planning and it was executed perfectly even with some weather changing the plans! We couldn’t recommend Weddings by Tasha more for any event.''
