We had a lovely day of wedding planning in the Atlas Mountains at Kasbah Bab Ourika, checking out the best spaces for the ceremony, dinner and after party (or boom boom as we call it at Boutique Souk). So many options as there are so many pretty gardens and terraces to choose from, each with a better view than the last. Our favourite was the terrace overlooking the maze garden and the patio terrace with views down in the red Ourika valley. We also got carried away posing up a storm while looking at areas for bridal portraits. We got served up a traditional breakfast of crepes, ‘beldi’ homemade bread, Berber omelette and of course sweet mint tea before heading back down the mountain road to Marrakech.
”“The kasbah is less than an hour from Marrakech and yet feels like another world. The views are absolutely amazing and the laid back interiors are beautifully put together.”
