Zoo weddings – A wedding venue with a wild animal twist


Zoo weddings are becoming increasingly popular, and it’s not hard to see why. For couples who want a truly unique experience, there’s no better way to tie the knot than in the company of some of nature’s most beautiful creatures. And for guests, it’s an event that they’ll be sure to remember for years to come! From rhinos to lions to giraffes, you and your guests will be able to take in the beauty of nature while celebrating one of the most important days of your life. 


Getting married in a zoo is an amazing concept, but you may be wondering how much flexibility you really have when it comes to making changes to your venue. 


When planning to celebrate your wedding at a zoo, keep in mind that you can be as flexible as you want and there are several ways to make changes to the traditional wedding format. For example, you could opt for a more casual dress code, or forego the typical wedding cake in favor of something more unique. You could even choose to have your ceremony and reception in different parts of the zoo or invite some animal ambassadors to the ceremony!

Have a unique and special venue surrounding by animals


Wild animal park weddings are a no-brainer for anyone who loves wildlife. The challenges of sharing your day with hundreds of furry species may seem daunting at first, but once you begin seeing these creatures as part of your special occasion then it all becomes clear why this type of wedding would make such great sense! 


When it comes to children, planning a wedding can be difficult. They’re unpredictable and demanding, which makes them challenging to work with as you plan your ceremony. But having an event at the zoo is going to provide plenty of activities for kids, so it will surely keep everyone happy and included in your special day.


If all of this sounds like what you are looking for your wedding, look no further than Tanganyika Wildlife Park. This animal-filled venue has won WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards for the last 8 years.

With over 51 acres of land and many natural outdoor settings to choose from, this Wichita zoo is the perfect place for a  wild animal park wedding.
