A Zambian woodland weddingDaniel and Sarah’s Zambian woodland weddingmiombo celebrations

It was a classic woodland wedding – gorgeous bunches of loosely gathered flowers and wispy foliage, flower crowns and curls – but with a Zambian twist… bushbuck tiptoed in the shadows in the miombo woodland surrounding the ceremony, and Spurwing geese preened themselves on the trees in the dam below.

Sarah and Daniel were married on Sarah’s family farm – “Musapas” – near Kitwe, Zambia – and for these two, there could have been no more perfect place and way to commit themselves to each other than the way they did it. Dan got ready in their own home on their own veranda (complete with smiling dogs) which is just down the road from Sarah’s beautiful childhood home. Things at her folks home were too busy for Sarah to get ready there, so she arrived from next door in her dear car “Christobel” after a morning surrounded by dogs and chickens, champagne, and all her special girls. Personal histories were woven into the fabric of all the mini-photo shoots. We did their couple photos on a favourite dambo on the farm – and headed  back for sundowners with the bridal party on the edge of the dam Sarah has grown up on. The reception was held on the Wilken family lawn and they did their first dance on ground which has held many happy Wilken – and more recently  – Knight – memories.

Sarah and Dan – I hope you enjoy your photos, just a small part of the story of your day. What a beautiful wedding and wishing you many more wonderful memories on your own veranda and in your own woodland miombo garden.
