Leandri & Jonathan chose Mjejane River Lodge for their private safari elopement, as lovers of the South African bush. It was a lovely, hot winter day with clear skies and a bit of wind to keep us cool. We set the ceremony arch up overlooking the Mjejane River, in an area away from other guests.

They declared their love and commitment to each other under the thorn trees. It was also exciting for us, being our first South African ceremony as newly registered marriage officers! And what a great couple to kick it off with!

After the ceremony, we hopped on the game vehicle for a private game drive and sundowners overlooking the river. They had the best time taking photos and drinking bubbly – you can see that the camera loves Leandri.

Such a special day, with such an amazing, fun couple X
