Kenya makes it possible for diversity of weddings and after the ceremony, there are many places you can go for your honeymoon. Many of the weddings in Kenya have been taking place in churches but the trend is changing and people are considering garden, beach and wild Kenya weddings. The good thing about Kenya is that it is easy to arrange a wedding ceremony for foreigners provided you have all the required documents.
Traditional Kenyan weddings are usually a community’s affair whereby everyone is invited. However, the trend has changed especially for couples marrying in towns where those who attend are the ones who have been invited and have invitation cards. This does not happen for all weddings but depends on the couple. Many couples also choose to stay within the country for their honeymoon. If a couple can afford it, they can fly out of Kenya for their honeymoon but with the many exciting places such as the Maasai Mara, many prefer to stay in the country. In Kenya, there are religious and civil wedding ceremonies and both of these have different requirements. In both cases, a marriage certificate is usually given and as a requirement, all weddings taking place in Kenya are registered by the Registrar of Marriages.
With the religious wedding ceremony, you can have a Christian, Islamic or Hindu wedding. If you want to hold your wedding in Kenya, you can make arrangements on your own or you can always engage the services of a wedding planner. We have qualified Kenya Wedding Planners who will take care of all the details of your wedding hence you can just relax and let them do the work. Whether you choose to invite many people or not, it is always a requirement that there are two witnesses for the ceremony, civil or religious.
