The ultimate union in the African Bush
A wedding at Tuningi is more than just a ceremony; it is a celebration of the love between two people. At Tuningi, your wedding ceremony will become a subtle combination of Colonial grace and charm.
The ceremony will take place on a ‘koppie’ (hill) overlooking the northern part of the Madikwe Game Reserve. Defined by careful attention to detail, service and co-ordination, the Tuningi team will lend a stylish yet relaxed and welcoming atmosphere to your exclusive wedding.... On the night of arrival we will treat you and your guests to a traditional bush dinner in the middle of the reserve under the stars. The day of the wedding will begin lazily with a relaxed brunch on the deck at the lodge, after which all will have time for a rest before the big event. Defined by careful attention to detail, service and co-ordination, the Tuningi team will lend a stylish yet relaxed and welcoming atmosphere to your exclusive bush wedding.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT AUTHORITIES IN SOUTH AFRICA REQUIRE ‘CERTIFIED’ DOCUMENTS
This document is a signed statement made by both Bride & Groom in the presence of a solicitor in which they swear that information given is true. The affidavit must be drawn up on Solicitors headed paper. Bride & Groom must sign the affidavit and then have the solicitor stamp the document & counter sign it.
This is a photocopy of an original document which is stamped and signed in red or blue ink by a solicitor as proof that it is a true copy. The solicitors stamp must include the word ‘solicitor’ on it.
Before you travel:
Guests marrying in South Africa will need to send the copies listed to us at least 12 weeks before the date of travel. You must take original and certified copies of all your documents with you.
In South Africa
Please note that fingerprints of your left thumb will be taken as part of the identification. Depending on your chosen venue for your wedding, you may be asked to complete a ‘Declaration For The Purpose Of A Marriage’ form. This needs to be completed before travel and then will be signed by the Commissioner of Oaths in South Africa. Following your wedding, you will be presented with an Abridged Marriage Certificate. On return to the UK, you may need to apply for the Un-abridged Marriage Certificate. The Minister in South Africa will advise you on how to do this.
Tropical Sky Weddings and the information given above only apply to couples born in the UK & have a valid UK passport (with some months validity on return home). If couples do not fulfil these requirements they must advise us. Couples should be referred to the embassy of the country of origin and the country where they wish to marry as they may require extra documentation to satisfy their own embassy requirements – Tropical Sky cannot advise on this and couples must investigate this on their own.
As Tropical Sky weddings have no jurisdiction over hotels/resorts/venues/legal requirements and their charges, we cannot be responsible for any increases or changes to these wedding arrangements. We will, however, endeavour to advise you of changes as soon as we are made aware of them. All prices and legal requirements correct as of September 2015.
