Wedding in Kenya

Kenya is home to top undiscovered wedding destinations; from the outstanding sunshine white sandy beaches, to the breathtaking wildlife national parks full of wildlife and the Great Rift Valley full of beautiful lakes, hills and valleys. Whether it’s a small simple and private ceremony followed by a romantic safari honeymoon or it's a large lavish ceremony with friends and family around you, on a private beachfront setting; Kenya has it all. A classic wedding could involve; a private Bush wedding followed by a wildlife safari honeymoon, a Beach wedding followed by a beach honeymoon or a mixed Bush safari wedding followed by beach honeymoon or vice versa.

Bush wedding / Safari wedding

Imagine taking your vows under an acacia tree at the open plains of Masai Mara or on a hot air balloon watching wildlife beneath you or on the slopes of Mount Kenya with the mountain background or on a Lake shore watching hundreds of bird species or in a luxurious lodge overlooking a waterhole surrounded by wild animals drinking water; the list is endless.

Some of the top private bush wedding destinations in Kenya are found in private ranches and wildlife conservancies at Masai Mara and Lakipia region; the two areas have the most exquisite and undiscovered romantic wedding and honeymoon venues, and top class accommodation that are strategically set on hills and valleys; overlooking the stunning open plains full of wildlife.

A typical bush wedding itinerary would start with a two days safari as you go through the wedding formalities, and then followed by the big day and a three days honeymoon. Activities would include wildlife watching safari, hot air balloon flights, cultural visits, nature walks, beauty and health spa treatments, sunset bush dinners and sunrise bush breakfast among other entertainments.

Beach wedding

Kenya has a coastline that stretches from Mombasa to Lamu along the Indian Ocean, a beach wedding could be anywhere along these stretch; a beach wedding could be anything from a small beachfront ceremony to a whole family and friends on an Island to witness you saying your vows; imagine saying ‘yes I do’ on a well decorated beachfront setting with an Ocean background, dining under the star-filled skies and indulging in deep-tissue massage among other luxury amenities.

Some of our top beach wedding and honeymoon destinations in Kenya include the beautiful Manda Island, Kiwayu Island, Lamu, Malindi, Kilifi and Diani Beach; here you would find different kinds of accommodation for small and large groups, with private beach areas, luxury amenities and beach activities. A typical beach wedding itinerary would start with a two days city excursion as you go through the wedding formalities, then transfer to a private beach for the big day ceremony and a few days beach honeymoon.
