Our Dream Wedding in Africa
by Candice & Jonathan
The story of our dream wedding in Zimbabwe....
I was born in Zim and left when I was eight. I always swore I would go back to get married as Zimbabwe holds a special place in my heart.
We took over the almost all the rooms at Matetsi Water Lodge for our special weekend. Words cannot describe what a fantastic job they did to make not only our wedding incredible but our whole weekend. The staff went above and beyond and quickly felt like family. They translated my dream wedding to the T!
We had the most incredible weather, gorgeous setting (on the banks of the Zambezi), sunset cruise and Boma dinner at a secret location (much to the guests surprise) in the bush.
Our guests flew in from all over the world and for most it was their first time to Africa (including my husband). We were the fourth wedding the hotel has ever done and you would have thought they did it every weekend.
Boo was so helpful in getting me contacts for the African dancers, hostels for some of our guests before the wedding, booking the adventure pack (lion walk, helicopter over the Falls and elephant safari) as well as just getting me general information on the ground (like maps etc). I could not have done it without her.
Your website is a godsend to the Victoria Falls. All my questions were answered quickly and the information we got was up to date.
I will be honest, I took a gamble and it worked to our favour.
Zimbabwe is coming back into its own finally. But the best part is the warmth of the people and the out of this world setting.
Everyone at our wedding has begged us to plan a reunion in a couple of years.
My husband and I can't wait to return!
