Craig & Goscelin

Makumu Private Game Lodge

Fairytale wedding in the heart of the African Bush

A dream came true for Craig & Goscelin as they tied the knot in a magical place that forms a integral part of who they are.

Craig & Goscelin's Safari Wedding

When love and adventure intertwine, they create unforgettable memories, and that's precisely what happened at Craig and Goscelin's safari wedding at the breathtaking Makumu Private Game Lodge. Nestled in the heart of the African wilderness, their special day was marked not only by their union but also by a surprise visitor that added an extra layer of magic to an already enchanting day.

Craig and Goscelin exchanged their vows surrounded by the untamed beauty of the South African bushveld. Makumu Private Game Lodge provided the perfect backdrop for this extraordinary celebration of love.

The ceremony itself was a testament to nature's unparalleled beauty. Craig and Goscelin looked resplendent in their safari-inspired attire, with the bride wearing a stunning gown that echoed the colors of the wilderness.

As the couple exchanged their vows and rings, the sounds of nature serenaded them—the chirping of birds, the rustling of leaves, and the distant calls of wildlife. It was an awe-inspiring reminder of the world they were stepping into as they embarked on their journey together.

Just when they thought the day couldn't get any more magical, nature had another surprise in store. As we were busy capturing the perfect shots, a majestic elephant silently emerged from the bushes. It seemed as though this gentle giant had come to offer its blessings to the newlyweds.

The elephant's presence was awe-inspiring, a symbol of luck, wisdom, and strength—qualities that Craig and Goscelin undoubtedly possessed as they embarked on this new chapter of their lives. Craig & Goschelin watched in hushed wonder as the elephant grazed nearby, as if acknowledging the significance of the moment.

As the night drew to a close and the African wilderness came alive with the sounds of nocturnal creatures, the newlyweds reflected on their incredible day. They realized that their safari wedding at Makumu Private Game Lodge had not only united them in love but had also forged a deep connection with the untamed beauty of the natural world.

Under a sky painted with a thousand stars and the memory of that unexpected elephant visit etched into their hearts, Craig and Goschelin's wedding day was a true testament to the power of love and the profound beauty of the African wilderness. It was a day they, their guests, and all who hear their story will cherish forever—a love story uniquely woven into the fabric of the wild, wild heart of Africa.
