There was so much to love about Cheska and Human's wedding - from the sweet hand painted 'Eat More Cake' tote bag filled with treats that we received on our arrival, to the awesome golden 'Big 5' animal favours that brought the bush to the table decor. The elegant stationary by Seven Swans. We loved the couples amazing family who welcomed us with open arms. We spotted wildlife from the balcony of the hotel, and heard the wildest stories of close encounters with water buffalo and elephants. We had our very own close encounter with a group of hippo during sundowners with guests down by the river bank, although we seemed to be the only ones concerned about it and all was well in the end.
We were reminded of why the African bush is synonymous with romance and adventure. Why those who visit or are lucky enough to have grown up there are forever in love with it - it's just a spectacular, truly wild and uniquely beautiful place that grips the heart forever. A more fitting place to have a wedding celebration would be hard to find.
