African Bush Inspired Micro Wedding Inspiration Shoot

December 20, 2022 | riley

Earthy, warm, and wild–there’s no other way to describe this African bush inspired micro wedding inspiration shoot. Inspired by the thousands of acres of private game reserve at the African Game Lodge, photographer and Junebug member June Richards Photography created a faux wedding that is the epitome of fierce.

The ceremony took place in the heart of the trees, with a candle-lit aisle that helped elevate the romantic atmosphere. And the indoor reception was full of elegant table settings, a terracotta color palette, and the floral ceiling of our dreams. Not to mention the couple took portraits amongst the vast scenery, making for some of the most unique wedding photos we’ve ever seen. 

While we know that tying the knot off the grid in Africa isn’t for everyone, if you and your significant other have a love for nature or wildlife, this is one that you’re surely not going to want to miss. So get those Google Flights pulled up because one look and you will be booking a roundtrip ticket to Cape Town for the destination wedding of your dreams.
