The park which is located in Naivasha is set on a hill and will give you a spectacular view of Lake Naivasha and the floor of the Great Rift Valley which comprises of beautiful green vegetation and hills.
The common idea that comes to mind when you talk of a Lake wedding is a wedding by the lakeside. Lake Naivasha Panorama Park however is the opposite of that. It gives you an aerial view of the Lake and the surrounding thus perfect for a change.

Also located in Naivasha, Enashipai Resort and Spa is one of the most beautiful wedding destinations you’ll ever come across. It is set on the shores of Lake Naivasha and gives the perfect example of a wedding by the lake. The green manicured lawns provide beautiful grounds for your wedding. This will be a wedding by the lake surrounded by a lush scenery of trees, bush vegetation and hills.
The resort offers a complimentary honeymoon night. How awesome!
The Maasai Mara
Maasai Mara is the most popular of all Kenya wedding destinations. I mean, who wouldn’t want a wedding in the wild, surrounded by animals, birds singing in the trees, large grass plains while the Maasai play and dance to traditional music around you. For me this would be a spectacular moment and a dream come true. You will have safari guides to offer you protection as you say your vows.
You can choose to stay at any of the lodges and camps in the Mara.
Rusinga Island Lodge
Rusinga Island Lodge is set on the shores of Lake Victoria in Kisumu. If you want to capture the best of this setting, you should wait to hold your wedding in the evening just as the sun is setting. Sunset over the lake is the most spectacular view ever. Trust me on this. It gives the most beautiful backdrop ever and Rusinga Island Lodge will give you this and more.
Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge
Lake Nakuru in the Rift Valley region is another popular Kenya wedding destination. Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge is set on a hill and gives you a spectacular view of the Lake which is surrounded by the beautiful pink flamingos. How is that for a backdrop! You will also capture other various bird species and acacia trees. It’s quite a breathtaking view.
How can this list be complete without a beach wedding! If you dream of a wedding in the white sand by the beach with a mind-blowing backdrop of serene blue waters and surrounded by palm trees, Hemingways Beach will give you this and much more.
You have an option of either holding your wedding by the beach or at the resort’s garden surrounded by palm trees. Whatever your choice, you will have the pleasure of enjoying the beautiful cool breeze of the Indian Ocean.
