Steve & Bella’s beautiful destination wedding was our very 1st wedding this year. We had been planning this wedding for over 2 years and we were really glad that finally we got a chance to document this beautiful love story. Let me just say Steve & Bella are amazing peoples!!!! They absolutely corporated with our larger-than-life ideas and gave us some of the most amazing wedding images ever. It also helped that we were in this breath-taking location of the Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club.

Loved this shot of Steve’s shoes…simple & perfect. The brown tan always does it for me
Bella had her shoe game on too…and we threw in her garter just to spruce up the shot
The guys getting ready in the men’s suite…
You know a TAG Heuer Carrera when you see one! #WristGoals my friend!
The groom, Steve getting his suit on!
And the guys were off to the ceremony in the fairmont cabbie 🙂
Aerial view of the gorgeous Farimont
Joy works her magic on Bella’s brows
Gorgeous Bella rocking her bridal look
These robes are the stuff of many brides-to-be dreams 🙂
Don’t mind us, we are just passing by…..
Girls just wanna have fun…who am I to say no?
I have been waiting a long time to do this shot!! The chance finally availed itself and we killed it!
Bella just topped the list of #WeddingBridalLooks goals, slay queens just got schooled 🙂
Cheers to a happily ever after, forever I do
Heading out & I captured this amazing shot…timeless capture
And off we were, in our custom golf cart, heading off to get Bella a husband
Indeed…the sign speaks it all…welcome to the wedding of the year!
The ceremony was decked out like it was some royal wedding…
The aerial view gives you an idea of what we are talking about
The queen arrives at the ceremony
We had a beautiful view of the mighty Mt. Kenya as a backdrop to the ceremony
An emotional Bella walks down the flowery aisle to be married to her knight in shining armour ***insert Suit!
And mid-aisle, Steve was handed over his beautiful bride by his parents-in-love
‘I have found the one whom my soul loves’ Songs of Solomon 3:4 – Oh what a wonderful verse
Find someone to laugh along with…that to me constitutes the proverbial ‘Happily ever after’
When you photograph people in Colour, you photograph their clothes, but when you photograph people in Black & white, you photograph their souls!
And when the 1st Kiss was announced, Steve was the happiest human in the planet!
Signed to law, legally and religiously bound for eternity
Psstt Steve, The most important four words for a successful marriage: ‘I’ll do the dishes.’
Hahahaha no problem love, as long as you, you are right there with me…
Finally, the man of God presented them with their marriage certificate
Aren’t they the world’s most gorgeous couple?
This should be the poster pin-up for ‘Dance your way to a happy marriage’
It was mocktails and then off to the portrait session
Floral Art flowers are always a breath of fresh air, and they set the perfect backdrop for our mid-day formals
Isn’t there a lot of LOVE in this image!
Steve & Bella are way to gorgeous, they should seriously consider commercial modelling as a side gig!
A few frames of the gorgeous bride never hurt nobody
The originators of the word SLAY had this in mind when they came up with that word
Why are these people these good looking?…Life was definitely more fairer to them 🙂
Class can have no better definition than this
Oh wasn’t this day a happy day
I could photograph these two lovelies all day, any day
This was a photographer’s dream come true! Perfect weather, gorgeous humans & a yummy location!
The famous lover’s walk, hand in hand, walking to eternity together
This is me when I stand on my tiptoes 🙂
Guests were busy catching up…and oh, isn’t this place lovely!
They had a beautiful laid out indoor reception, the ambience was nothing short of heaven
And the food, oh my, these images do not even do enough justice!
The dessert, was finger-lickin’ good!
Checking in to the reception with African song & jubilation
We shed quite a few tears during the reception toasts
And finally, we got a taste of the scrumptious cake!
And now to some fun & dancing!
The party was jumping indeed
Would love to leave you with some final portraits we took at sunset, ‘the golden hour’ we love to call it
This is how sunsets at the Fairmont look like
The bridal team rock that golf cart
And whoever catches the bouquet is next in the marriage line….
This is Millenium Maze…try locate the bride & groom there in
How many people can boast of dancing as the mighty Mt.Kenya watches?
Let us just say…God heard our prayers and favoured us with the perfect African sunset
I call this the ‘Lost-in-veil’ shot…it works everytime
Oh how beautiful is this?
And with this final image, I would love to leave you with their wedding trailer courtesy of Jazanda Wedding Films.
Thank you so much for dropping by,
God Bless & leave a comment to Steve & Bella if you can…
