Arranging own wedding in Kenya

We really want to get married in Kenya next year (September 2014) just my partner and I. But we don't want a package wedding holiday; we'd like to arrange our own trip. We've looked at flights and found a private villa on the beach we'd like to rent. The problem is I don't know where to start with arranging the actual wedding and ceremony. We just want something intimate and low key (we will have no guests there) and to have some photographs taken on the beach to remember the day by.

Does anyone know of a wedding planner (UK or Kenya based) who can arrange the paperwork and legalities on our behalf without stipulating that we have to book accommodation through them? Or has anyone arranged their own wedding in Kenya without a planner? How easy is it, and what costs are involved?

Thanks
