Real Wedding: A Zimbabwean Safari Wedding


Zimbabwean Wedding 6

We have definitely seen an increase trend in couples from across the globe opting to tie the knot in a picturesque country, like Africa. But when I came across this gorgeous Zimbabwe Safari wedding, I see why this landscape, the people and the variety of stunning cultural aspects make it such a great place to get married. Corey and Lynette Perkins flew all the way to Zimbabwe from the United States for their wedding. It was the first time Lynette had been back in her home country in four years and the first time the groom had met her family.

The groom is American and even though he hadn’t met his in-laws before, they seem to have gotten along great.

The sweetest part of this couples lovely wedding story is before their wedding day, the couple spent time building a safe-house for young girls suffering from abuse.

When choosing a location for a destination wedding, many couples choose tropical islands as an easy and low cost option, but why not go for a gorgeous country like Zimbabwe, Senegal, South Africa or Ethiopia since there are an abundance of stunning locations to choose from. Love how this couple incorporated traditional dancers at their wedding.

The couple also honeymooned at beautiful Victoria Falls.

Overall from these gorgeous photos from Corey & Lynette we see that Zimbabwe is truly a remarkable destination, set apart from other international weddings locations due to the warm hospitable nature of the people and meticulous attention to detail and amazing scenic views. Congrats to them for staying true to themselves and having a beautiful love!
