Kongoni Lodge Naivasha: Jackie + Jon

On this day, the clouds were dark and heavy. As Jackie was helped into her gown by her mother and future mother-in-law, the sky rumbled and I kid you not, there was lightning. Panicked calls ensued: Jon asking if Jackie was ready to walk down to the Euphorbia grove for their first look, Chetna asking whether or not to put up the marquees.

Right after the first look, it rained then tapered off, giving us enough time for the ceremony. Jackie and Jon barely had time for their first kiss before the rains came down again, this time with wind and thunder.

But this couple pulled it off and with great panache too. This is Jackie and Jon’s bush wedding in Kongoni Lodge, Naivasha.

When I asked what was key for them and what their favourite parts of the day were, this was what they had to say.

“It was important that we didn’t have a typical British or Canadian wedding in Kenya. Our guests were coming from so far away, we didn’t want it to be something that we could’ve done in either of our home countries. We wanted to make sure that the wedding gave our international guests a feel for Kenya and why we love it.

We enjoyed the entire thing! I loved the band, they were great! Jon particularly liked “seeing  his beautiful bride walking down the aisle” (his words). The only thing that went wrong was the weather, but it actually wasn’t so bad in the end. It seemed to rain at (fairly) convenient times and we were able to carry on with things as planned for the most part.”

The couple would like to thank their friends and family who made the trip from all over the world to celebrate with them.

Jackie and Jon, your wedding was a dream to photograph. We cannot thank you enough for trusting us with your special day. We wish you much love and laughter in your life together.
