A Safari Elopement Photo Shoot by The Wedding Haven
The Wedding Haven is known for their unique ideas and out of the box wedding themes.
For one lovely couple, this talented team created a unique safari-themed elopement photo shoot.
"Talk about relationship goals! When this couple enters any room, you can't help but feel their chemistry. They are so obviously head over heels for each other, and it definitely shows" May from The Wedding Haven describes the couple.
The safari elopement shoot took place at the Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island resort, approximately 4 hours away from Dubai.
With a central lodge featuring a Mediterranean restaurant and lounge, 30 individual villas -15 set directly on the beach and 15 overlooking the lush green mangroves - Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island offers a lot of privacy with a dash of luxury.
The resort was built using design principles that take the Island’s delicate ecosystem into consideration, making it the perfect venue for adventurous couples.
"We got to the resort early morning, hopped onto a ferry to the island and began getting ready. For their ceremony, they chose to exchange their vows in front of all the wildlife that the island harbored - from wild gazelle and deer, to cheetahs and giraffes. Yes, they actually got the chance to see and even take a selfie with a few giraffes that were roaming the island! As for their dinner reception, we chose to keep it as intimate as possible; we decided to style the sweetheart table using what nature offered, primarily fruits" says May.
"We wanted touches of red, so we focused on strawberries, berries, and pomegranate to liven up the decor" explains May.
