If money was no object, where would you decide to wed?
Top businessman Lyndon Lea and model Sophie Dickinson flew their guests out to an African wildlife reserve to say 'I do' overlooking a herd of elephants grazing at a nearby watering hole - sounds pretty cool, right?
The British couple hosted a lavish five-day wedding extravaganza, tying the knot in the heart of the Serengeti, looking out across the unspoilt plains. Guests dined outside where paper pompoms hung from the trees and the tables were decorated with simple arrangements of cream, white and pale pink blooms so as not to detract from the magical backdrop.
As with any once-in-a-lifetime experience, guests, including actress Vanessa Hudgens, documented their stunning views, fun activities and, of course, an abundance of wedding details on social media. The bride took to Instagram to share a snap of her white laced column dress, complimented by her six bridesmaids, who all wore lightweight pale pink frocks.
Continuing the theme throughout the day, mini gold elephant figures that paid homage to the giants surrounding the Four Seasons lodge were used as place names, and figures of a lion and lioness topped the couple's white wedding cake.
Caroline Villamizar Duque, the founder and creative director of Quintessentially Events, the company behind this spectacular wedding, says: "It is a privilege to plan such an extraordinarily stand alone, boundary breaking wedding."
TOP TIPS FOR PLANNING YOUR PERFECT WEDDING
As with any destination wedding, careful planning is of the utmost importance. Caroline continues: "the planning involved was incredibly complex, but it is always utterly rewarding seeing months of preparation come to life and to a mind blowing scale. In such an awe inspiring setting as the Serengeti, Sophie and Lyndon's wedding certainly stands out in our minds as an unforgettable experience."
