Morocco is magical. For years, I’ve been drawn to Moroccan weddings and spoiled with photographing a few myself. There’s nothing like a traditional Moroccan fête – colorful decor in ornate palaces, dramatic dress changes, and enormous tiered cakes. Today’s inspiration celebrates these regal traditional Moroccan elements catered to the modern couple.
Taking advantage of her family vacation home, Charlotte Ricard of La Fête planned and designed a bridal styled shoot fit for Moroccan royalty. The stunning palace was filled with colorful florals, textiles, treats and balloons and paired with luxe antique silver and gold lanterns, tables and crockery. Six tiers seemed adequate for such a royal event – the traditional cake, in bright candy colors and gilded so ornately, is an absolute showstopper.
Enter our absolutely modern and just as regal bride and groom. Featuring two stunning Galia Lahav gowns from Brides Do Good (read on about their fabulous cause!) our bride is nothing less than a Moroccan queen. A sexy and romantic lace sheath gown is followed by maybe one of the most magnificent sweetheart ballgowns we’ve ever seen – absolutely fit for the modern princess – twirling in that dreamy Marrakech light captured by Roberta Facchini Photography.
