Recently I’ve been dreaming of an African Safari. There is nothing more exciting than a beautiful location, warm weather and a new adventure to get you in the mood for summer and perhaps even a safari themed wedding! The image above is so fun and timeless. It is so inspiring to see couples do something different using masks. The picture captures a wonderful moment in a beautiful setting at the same time making it almost surreal.

This safari inspired photoshoot got me thinking about the cool and quirky things you can do to personalise your wedding. Being a fan of vintage suitcases, I was immediately drawn to their uniqueness and love how the image below, which gives different ideas of using suitcases as part of your decoration. Using them as a backdrop to your photo spot is just one idea. I was also drawn to the minature wooden rhino in the photo above which is perfect for wedding favours or to liven up your table decor.

This table setting adds some much needed colour to a safari theme. The bright flowers with warm softly lit candles just looks dreamy. The birdcages add a little fun and quirkyness to the whole setting. You can also replace the birdcages with cute little laterns which will create a similar effect.

The bride looks stunning and her bridesmaids look so cute in their safari inspired dresses. I love how this photo looks vintage yet modern. The soft lighting gives the picture a dreamy effect.

Beautiful and simple. The natural elements around the couple and their outfits create a relaxed vibe. I especially love the vintage style photography which really gives the photos an almost 1920s style effect.

Photography has always been a passion of mine, and I would like to share this with you. Whist studying Photography at London College Of Fashion my love of this wonderful man grew and grew. Tim Walker, our dream photographer.
His work is everything that anything has to do with fantasy. Theatrics that somehow look like that’s exactly how they were meant to be found, that they live in a world where this really does exist and we just mearly get a glimpse into this. It’s like walking into Narnia meets Alice in Wonderland meets Princess and the Pea. What I find interesting about him is he loves to shoot on film, which I am a believer in, there is something fascinating about not knowing how your images are going to turn out until the end, digital photography, great for so many things, but takes the beauty ( I believe) out of an old art.
In relation to weddings, I think Tim Walker expresses everything that would make my dream day, fantasy, oddities, imagination, whimsical settings and gowns Cinderella would be jealous of. This post is purely for your pleasure, his work has been used as inspiration for a lot of Events/Weddings and I hope it can be food for thought for you too.
