Wedding in Maasai Mara - Kenya

Tuesday, January 27, 2015




Where did you get married? Nina and Sebastian wed in Maasai Mara in Kenya. Since Nina spent a long period of time in the area working on a project about the world’s last wild lions, it was only natural for her to celebrate her special day by including all the new friends who welcomed her into their lives with such generosity. The local Maasai community treated the couple to traditional jewelry that Nina wore on the day and to a special stick that Sebastian carried with him. As a gift from a close friend, they also enjoyed the company of real warriors from the Maasai community who sent Sebastian and Nina into their wedded bliss. How special is that?

I love when cultures collide and when a group of amazing people come together on such a special day. Plus, that mixed with those breathtaking views, makes for one spectacular event, don’t you think? Wow!

P.S: Plus, this picnic-style wedding in Australia and this Shinto-style bride in Tokyo.
P.P.S: Ah, the decorated bride...

How fun! One of my good friends (who is Kenyan) is getting married in Kenya later this year. It will be amazing to experience the country, especially with her advice - can't wait!

Certainly is breathtaking! We're getting married in 8 short months, in South Africa, at a family owned game reserve, and I can't wait. I hope our photos turn out as magnificent as these (although we're not having warriors…sniff…). x
