African Wedding Ideas & Decor

We love contemporary South African and African wedding decor, and how this theme can be transformed into so many creative & inspirational details! The African Theme can be subtly or generously integrated into your wedding through so many interesting and beautiful textures, patterns, colours and natural elements.

African Wedding Idea #1 : Local Food, Wine & Beer

We have an incredible selection of local African delicacies that can be used for your wedding canapes and snacks. Get trendy by modernising & transforming traditional dishes or street food into high-end gourmet snacks. Think gourmet mini bunny-chow in homemade loafs, meat straight from the braai - served as a delicately plated, intricate dish or clever canapes using familiar favourites. South African and broader African cuisine offers the most amazing options for wedding food.

We love the idea of serving different African beers at your wedding bash! We have so many delicious brews - and the interesting and unusual bottles will create a visual masterpiece for your photographer!

African Wedding Idea #2 : Animal Prints

You can add a serious dose of African Glam to your wedding by cleverly integrating luxurious Animal Prints. Some ideas we love are animal-print wedding shoes, dashes of prints on your wedding cake, or animal print napkins & napkin rings.

You can also introduce African animal prints into your decor by using throw cushions across a lounge area in your favourite animal print or finding animal-print ribbons to wrap around candles or create detail on chairs and flower arrangements. We are in LOVE with all the beautiful and creative ways you can integrate African animal prints into your wedding!

African Wedding Idea #3 : African Flowers & Natural Elements

There’s something magical about the flowers and natural earthy textures of the African bushveld. Integrate these into your wedding day by selecting wood-grain ornaments, using local flowers like Proteas or wild flowers, having Aloe plants as favours or choosing colours in your theme that echo the African wilderness. Whether you simply want a few African accents - or want to go all out with your African Theme, there are so many beautiful options for your wedding!
