Marrakech wedding: Jess & Darren’s 4 day adventure
Morocco is an incredible country. It’s so close to Europe and so far in many ways. It’s a trip back in time into a land of tradition and craftsmanship. A walk through any of its medinas will brings you into a world of smells dominated by spices, leather and fresh mint tea.
Marrakech is one of the four imperial cities of Morocco along with Fez, Mequinez and Rabat. It’s a red city: red soils and red buildings dominate the landscape, and it sits by the Atlas the largest set of mountains in Morocco. It has a nice overall weather throughout the year, though winters can get cold and the summers are fairly hot. Spring and autumn would make the best wedding for the event that brings us here: a wedding!
For some years now, Marrakech has gained a certain reputation for those looking to have a destination wedding in Morocco or near Europe. It’s well communicated with many european cities by a short flight, and it has some of the most stunningly beautiful venues anyone has ever seen. Luxury palaces modernly renovated with gorgeous styling and attention to detail, keeping an eye on moroccan tradition while following the latest interior design trends. It’s a photographers’ dream, and I can tell you right now it was the best trip I’ve had in a long time, photographically speaking.
My dear friend Igor Demba was the main photographer for the event, and he was kind enough to bring me to second shoot for him, ride camels and stuff our faces with moroccan pancakes (you definitely have to try them out!)
It was a dream wedding: a 4 day event in 3 of the coolest venues on earth: El Fenn, La Pause and Ksar Char-Bagh. It’s a loooong post, so many things happened worth showing, so make you a cup of mint tea and let’s begin with a walk through the Marrakech medina to kick start those Moroccan vibes flowing…
