Décor

I love what I do and enjoy setting the scene for a beautiful wedding on this stunning island that is Zanzibar! Although I have a wealth of experience, I am by no means a qualified florist or a decorator.

I have an abundance of vases; friends bring me florist tape when visiting from the “big cities”. I have beach mobiles made of rope and coconut bask, but if you are browsing the internet and find pictures of weddings in Miami, Cape Town or The South of France, please bear in mind that we are on a small island off the coast of East Africa and unfortunately, I do not have the resources at my disposal that a wedding planner in the United States might have.

Shopping online and shipping to Tanzania is virtually impossible, therefore a number of brides have brought with them décor pieces, under plates, fairy lights, special napkins and menu cards, to mention but a few. We welcome you to do the same if I cannot source your favourite tea light candle holder here. That said, there is a decorator in Dar es Salaam that can endeavour to assist should you wish.

I strive to assist where possible and have an amazing team ready to hang 120 Chinese lanterns on Zalu’s sky high locally thatched roof if needed because we want to be sure you have the wedding of your dreams. Mother Nature has blessed Zanzibar with beautiful beaches fringed with swaying palm trees and stunning turquoise waters, what more could anyone ask for. There is nothing more beautiful than a beach themed wedding, but please understand that in order to protect our reefs, we cannot use sea shells or starfish as decoration. We appreciate your assistance and support in conserving the ocean.
