African Bush Safari-Style Wedding

It’s not every day we see a wedding set in the African Bush, but take that day and see it through the lens of Leila Brewster? Absolute perfection. Join the ultimate wedding adventure with more in The Vault!

Al Fresco

From the Bride…We were married outside in the middle of the bush with roaring lions in the background (literally). The wedding was on a private farm and serves as a research and conservation center for lions, so there are nearly 200 lions on the farm. Our wedding was very small group, and we just wanted to give our friends and family a trip of a lifetime!!

This Bridal Shoot in the Moroccan Desert is Everything

There are bridal shoots, and then there is this bridal shoot set against a breathtaking Moroccan desert. The difference? Acres of sandy dunes, a glowing sunset and the oh-so-talented Kibogo Photography on hand to capture every glorious moment. Head to THE VAULT to soak in all the pretty, then press play on the fab film from Marco Dueck Films below to make your Monday sooo much better.


From Kibogo PhotographyFor a film about my work as a destination wedding photographer, I picked the stunning backdrop of the Sahara desert in Morocco. My dear friend Irene was there to shoot portraits of my husband and me, and then I turned the camera on her and used her as my model wearing an ethereal tulle skirt from Noni.

For the location, I chose Kasbah Sahara Services Deluxe Camp which has great service, yummy food, and amazing tents. Hotel Mhamid is located in the last town called Mhamid before entering the desert. That where you leave your rental car and they drive you with a 4-wheeler to the tented camps in the middle of the desert.

The scenery is amazing and so calming. A perfect place to have an elopement or small intimate wedding. At night temperatures dipped down to freezing but during the day a toasty 25 celsius made for great weather to explore the desert. We were there in January, which they say is the coldest month.

The former is the incredible celebration we’re about to unfold. Designed by Joy Proctor and photographed KT Merry, it’s all the reason you’ll ever need to begin planning an African honeymoon, anniversary, or “just because” trip with the one you love. Peek back at part one or dive straight into the gallery right this way.


“Vicky and Jon chose to spend their anniversary

surrounded by the magic of the African wilderness.”

-Joy Proctor Design


From Joy Proctor… After their wedding, Vicky and Jon chose to spend their anniversary surrounded by the magic of the African wilderness. Inspired by the beauty of the Tanzanian landscape and organic details of the Serengeti Bushtops they took a small plane into the remote camp and brought along photographer KT Merry Photography to capture their adventure. Setting out on the first day they gathered their backpacks, binoculars, and hats and headed out to see the animals. After a picnic lunch under a tree, and a long drive around the reserve they headed back to camp to get ready for a beautiful, candlelit dinner. Changing into a flowing Elie Saab gown and a clean suit, Vicky and Jon enjoyed dinner surrounded by candle lanterns.
