Jelena & Zein — A Chic Destination wedding

It was a natural choice for our elegant, Zambian, bride Jelena to marry the man of her dreams, Zein, by the beaches of Nungwi, Zanzibar – the setting that she felt was perfect for her glamorous celebration.Their relaxed, chic and opulent wedding took place at the Hideaway of Nungwi resort & spa, where all the guests were staying.

Jelena and Zein wanted their intimate celebration to be a true representation of them as a couple with the focus to be on family, friends, incredible food and wine! The design and coordination were done by our dear friends in South Africa – Wedding Concept. WC Contacted Kevin’s Events to execute the simplicity and relaxed setting that they had in mind. !

The beautiful ceremony area was set in the lush gardens facing the Indian Ocean, which offered the perfect location for this intimate gathering!  The décor was very simple, with a botanically inspired arch, white fresh flowers, white tiffany chairs and poems that meant something to the couple down the aisle. The bride was escorted with two Masai down the aisle before being joined by her father

The simplicity and glamorous look of the reception setting offered a platform that perfectly complemented the guest’s experience of ‘dinning under the stars’! The natural color palette was carried through to the reception space, with the focal feature being lavish floral arrangements that ran along the center of the tables, lots of candles in different clear vases, lanterns tables – adding a touch of elegance to the table!
