This was a nice and intimate wedding, where the bridal team, the guests plus all were a total of 35! I loved it. The setting was in Olerai house in Naivasha, same route as Great Rift Lodge. It is a good stretch off the tarmac, a couple of times we thought we got lost and had to keep calling to confirm the route.

From the gate at Olerai, once we went in, there was an airstrip, with zebras grazing on it. Very beautiful and serene setting. Further in we got to a second gate that now leads us into Olerai house. The compound is huge and spacious with beautifully manicured lawns. The decor at the lounge is very inviting and loads of places that you can seat in the open and take in the beautiful landscape.

The wedding was a garden one, with people sitting on Hay draped in Maasai shukas.  looking outwards to a very scenic view at the back. The bridegroom was walked in by Samburu warriors in full attire and then came the bride, walked in by her father.

I tried to be as invisible as possible so as not to break the intimacy and just capture people in their true emotions. Here are some of the images from the wedding, enjoy and leave your feedback.

Congratulations to Simone and Manuela

    Lovely pics! Love the couple’s theme, and I will not use the word ethnic (euwww), the colours bring it all together nicely, none of that meta meta stuff or near-generic two colour theme.
