A Magical La Mamounia Wedding
Emily and Andrew chose Marrakech for their Labor Day weekend destination wedding after falling in love with and getting engaged in the Red City. The couple arranged a 3 day highly experiential weekend for their guests.
Day 1, guests crossed the city’s famous Djeema El Fna for rooftop sundowners and a romantic candlelit cous cous supper in a typical Riad.
Day 2 the adventure continued with a sunset dinner in the desert in a bespoke tented camp decorated with hundreds of Moroccan rugs, typical berber tents and tables laden with candles, roses and cacti. Guests dined on whole roast lamb and BBQ, and danced with local musicians and DJ under the stars after a lot of sunset photo moments with camels.
The couple chose the romantic gardens of La Mamounia Hotel for their highly stylised wedding ceremony where the Bride broke with convention to wear a duck egg blue J Mendel gown to exchange vows with her Tom Ford outfitted Groom against a backdrop flower wall and surrounded by cages of tweeting love birds. The wedding reception was hosted in a purpose built dining room with wallpaper designed by the groom and filled with potted palm and banana trees, custom made banquet seating and a Jazz Band serenading the guests. Velvet curtains revealed an afterparty club which kicked off with the cutting of a Pierre Hermé wedding cake. An after, after party continued into the night in the hotel’s mythic Churchill Bar.
