Planning the perfect wedding

Every couple dreams of the perfect wedding in an exotic location - deciding on a venue for the big day is an experience in itself. Zimbabwe is the perfect place to tie the knot, and Harare is renowned as a wedding destination, offering tailor-made events, whatever the budget or scenic preference.

 

Most of the top wedding venues have their own co-ordinators and work alongside hiring specialists and wedding planners, who can assist with the majority of the logistical planning, leaving the bride and groom to make more informed decisions for every aspect of the wedding. Once the venue is chosen, only hard work will ensure the day is a success.

 

One of Zimbabwe's most sought-after wedding venues for both locals and international visitors is on the outskirts of Harare - Wild Geese Lodge offers a luxury setting overlooking a private wildlife sanctuary with the Mazowe hills in the distance.  

 

Once booked well in advance, the lodge’s functions co-ordinator can advise on all on-site arrangements and offers a list of recommended service providers, from photographers to car hire and make-up artists, for any budget.

 

Some of the most memorable aspects of the wedding will include the ceremony itself, followed by the catering, decor and, of course, the festivities. Choosing the right music, whether it be a top DJ, talented string quartet or marimba band, is a pre-requisite to ensure an enjoyable occasion.

 

For budget conscious couples, Harare boasts some excellent restaurants with a variety of cuisine, fine wines and facilities to cater for intimate gatherings, as well as larger events. 
 

Alternatively, organisers can hire marquees or venues and choose from one of many excellent decor specialists, as well as caterers and florists, to make the day an unforgettable occasion. There are many excellent lodges and gardens, hotels, golf clubs and restaurants to choose from in Harare to host any size wedding imaginable.
