As African Wedding Week comes to a close, it is time to put aside the destination guides, fashion inspiration & decor ideas to share an inspiring real African wedding for you all.
Gabrielle & Doug’s sunrise wedding over Mozambique waters is perfectly in the spirit of what we’re trying to do here at Bridal Musings. Africa is filled with breathtaking destinations that maybe you never considered and we want to shine a light on all over these overlooked, incredible places.
Bride Gabrielle described the day as “heavenly” and we wholly agree. Ceremony vows at dawn & reception at dusk, it seems as though Gabrielle & Doug’s day was entirely in the golden hour – wedding heaven if you ask us. Having pivoted due to Covid-19 from a much larger even to this intimate, beach wedding, the two found not only a gorgeous wedding venue but an all-around incredible experience at Sussurro.
Over the water honeymoon suite? Try over the water wedding vows. I feel somewhat naive that in over 10 years of photographing weddings I’ve never considered what a perfect aisle & ceremony setting a dock over water is. Sussurro’s long curved dock over Mozambique’s clear aqua waters makes for the most dramatic entrance and needs little (really no) decoration to speak of.
Fashion included two gowns (to befit differing sunrise & sunset climates, of course!) and a bridal party wardrobe designed themselves by the couple’s own brand Liv & Light.
