Your wedding is one of the best days of your life. It is the time to celebrate your love for one another and invite family and friends to witness the joy that you experience. In the midst of all the excitement and merrymaking, couples have to find the best place that depicts the love they share. Some choose the event centre down the street while others go the extra mile and plan a destination wedding that will awe guests that attend and those who hear about it. Below are 5 top destinations for the wedding of your dreams.
1. Obudu, Calabar
Have a wedding in Obudu and get your name in the history books. Weddings happening in this hilly city have a certain character that defines it as an almost ethereal occurrence. The Obudu Ranch Resort has more than enough space to accommodate your guests and the cool mountain temperature serves to maintain the right atmosphere for love.
2. Diani, Kenya
This beach resort is an expansive island of white sands and palm trees with a sunrise that will melt your heart away. Just like in the movies, say your vows by the ocean and invite guests to have intense fun snorkeling and scuba diving after the ceremony. Spend a few days here and you’ll never want to leave.
3. Zanzibar, Tanzania
Another city that drives tons of people to its shores is Zanzibar. The city is an epitome of what some people might call paradise. It lies on the Indian Ocean so it affords guests the opportunity to bask in the African sun and enjoy the clear blue waters. Couples fly out to Zanzibar for the perfect wedding with the right mix of heaven and Earth.
4. Victoria Falls, Zambia/Zimbabwe
Lock eyes with your one and only at the largest waterfall in Africa. The rainbows created by the falls serve as the most romantic backdrop that promises a marriage to last for decades. The surrounding city is very welcoming to tourists so guests can explore the wonderful falls as they celebrate your union.
5. Bazaruto Archipelago, Mozambique
Flit from one island to the next at the Bazaruto Archipelago in Mozambique. Imagine having an engagement in Benguerra, a wedding in Banque and a reception party in Santa Carolina, the Paradise Island. The beautiful islands provide the best you can get for a destination wedding with sandy beaches, coral reefs and magnificent scenery.
