After two years of waiting, Covid 19 & postponements, Griffen & Kim's South African Dream bush wedding weekend at Thornybush Game Lodge finally arrived. They travelled from the US with their family and friends from all over the world to come and celebrate their love in their favourite place, The South African Bushveld.
This is a very long post, but worth every single image.
Full supplier list at the end. Enjoy!
Friday - Rehearsal Bush Dinner
After arriving on Friday morning, the 1st of July 2022 we did some scouting, joined the couple and bridal party for wedding rehearsal at Seseka tented Camp and set out for an epic sunset game drive & bush rehearsal dinner.
Bush Rehearsal Dinner
Capturing their bush dinner in absolute darkness was a bit challenging, but worth the effort of carrying around a tripod for every shot.
The flashlight & candle-lit atmosphere was absolute magic. Seeing Hahina's surrounding us after dinner was incredible. One night I will surely never forget.
Wedding day Sunrise Game drive
We couldn't say no to a sunrise game drive on the morning of the wedding. We got up before sunrise for a coffee and set off for an incredible game drive. Among bucks and Hahinas we saw the biggest pride of lions I've ever witnessed, just enjoying some sunshine on a chilly winter's morning.
Finally, I get to share with you the most beautiful wedding moments. Griffen and Kim were the most beautifully relaxed couple, celebrating their love with their closest friend and family. You know that every single person who celebrated their wedding day with them was definitely special when they want to include every single person in their wedding album.
Enjoy their gorgeous winter bushveld wedding.
The wonderful people involved in making dreams come true.
Firstly I would like to thank my wonderful friend and second shooter, Adell for travelling with me to Thornybush Game Lodge. You are just a star and I know I can always count on you.
