Hi Sheenaugh-Lee, I am getting married at Berg & Dal in April this year.
Stephen Nel has been great at organising all the details.
We are having the ceremony in the bush and then driving back to camp to have the reception at the boma there.
So excited! :D

Not wearing white or anything long as the ceremony is deep in the bush and it will probably get ruined pretty quickly! Hoping for a vintage safari theme as far as the outfits go, trying to get my partner to hurry up and get his suit made.....

Does anyone know a good bakery that could make a Crockenbouche (french wedding cake) in Nelspruit or surrounding areas. Battling to find somewhere to make the cake for the wedding and cannot transport it from JHB as it will go soggy. :cry:

I just got a thought, why don't you have a beige coloured flowing chiffon dress made not too long and then a crown made of leaves and twigs with flowers in it, your bouquet with the same materials and no shoes just have ribbons tied around your feet.
As for a cake have you tried Google maybe it will pick up something that will be close enough for you that when you do transport the cake from their it will be ok by the time you get to B & D? :)

Always best to contact the camp direct.
They have arranged a lot of weddings there and I am sure will do something special for you.
Maybe the best is to email the camp manager stephen.nel@sanparks.org and explain to him what you would like.
I think he really enjoys sorting out things like this!
Maybe you will get me as a guide!!!



EcoJ you forgot to say.....and I will put a flower in my hair in honour of the occasion :P
Jokes aside, if Ecojunkie is your guide you'll have a fabulously interesting drive

Hi!

I'm also getting married in Kruger next month. Stephen has been fantastic in getting everything organised for us as well. :D we are now just finalising the last few things... Any advice on flowers? We are having something simple, but want to put a bunch of flowers on each table. Has anyone used a florist in Malelane?

Hi Nrijntjies and a warm welcome to the forum!!! I do hope you'll have a stunning wedding!!!

Do have a look at Blusing Bride Proteas.......it's a real stunning small flower and will keep well without water.

I'm not sure if they are in season though.

Can't help with a florist in Malelane, but will keep my ears open. :thumbs_up:

Hi Nrijntjies
I am going to get my sister to do the flowers, she used to be a florist. That being said we are going to just use Proteas as they will survive the journey from Joburg and last until the wedding. Good luck for your big day!

Hi all, we want to marry in the Park next September, I have emailed one pastor (email address from reservations) not sure why they gave me his details but he lives Nelspruit and has come back saying its too difficult due to all the restrictions and to marry in the uk legally then have an african ceremony ! That's not we want and on Googling there are lots of travel companies who advertise Park weddings. We already have flighs booked and Park accommodation but we're struggling to get 5 days in a luxury lodge to get married in... I've only just started the search and have sent off emails all over the place but any advice/experiences greatly received please..... :gflower:

Hi Moggyminder. I am assuming that you live in UK. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding.

I can't remember the reasons, but my daughter and son-in-law (both dual SA/UK citizens) had a quiet Registry Office wedding ceremony in England and then had the chapel, wedding dress etc. wedding/blessing and reception here (not Kruger). They just found it would be best to be legally married in UK, where they are living and just have the ceremony/blessing here for friends and family. The ceremony here was conducted by a pastor friend of theirs and was a wedding ceremony without the actual legal signing of the registry.

Maybe ask around in UK and find out what the implications of marrying here would be.
