So, you might think that I’m stating the OOOoooooobvious, duh, but when I was a child I got bitten pretty badly by the travel bug. The UK is my home now, but I relish each and every opportunity to explore the beautiful world around us, from Copenhagen to Bulgaria, and from France to Morocco. Whether that’s shooting weddings like this Colourful Indian Marrakech Destination Wedding, or taking family trips, I genuinely find joy in each new place I visit. There are some corners of the world that have well and truly stolen pieces of my heart, and Marrakech is one of these.
It’s a chaotic cacophony of sounds and smells, and the colour – oh, the colour! I. Love. It!
In fact, nearly five years ago, my husband and I chose to get married there. So, when Immy and Aaysha booked me for their Indian Marrakech Destination Wedding, then told me we were headed to the intense blues, greens and yellows of the Majorelle Gardens, I was over the moon.
This wedding was truly multicultural and spread over two days.
A Colourful Indian Marrakech Destination Wedding
The following is Day one – the Indian part of their wedding weekend. I loved their colourful embroidered outfits and the emotion of the traditional Indian ceremonies and blessings from each side of the family. Immy is muslim and Aaysha is hindu, you see. What an unusual mix.
After wandering the heat and colour of the Majorelle Gardens the couple received their guests at Palais Soleiman for dinner and the wedding blessings. The receiving line was so happy and emotional – everyone was looking forward to the celebration that was about to happen. The couple chose to have traditional Moroccan musicians playing at the entrance of the venue. The musicians’ traditional Moroccan outfits and loud, swirling music added hugely to the atmosphere.
The blessings were traditional, and a total family affair. The groom’s mum performed a blessing with her own wedding scarf. Immy and Aaysha walked in under it, then his mum threw nuts in each direction to ward off any future sorrows from the couple. She then wrapped the couple in it for them to keep, from one generation to the next. So meaningful and lovely! Then, it was time to eat, and the spread at Palais Soleiman didn’t disappoint. So many spiced, fragrant, colourful Moroccan dishes. If you love travel, you’ll feel the love. Yumm!
