Wow! We’re totally swooning over Cara and Shaun’s breathtaking multicultural Marrakech wedding at Le Palais Paysan. The couple’s goal was to make sure their family and friends had a great time—with a drink in hand throughout the entire day! We love the laid-back vibe that’s mixed with touches of glam and gold decor planned by Boutique Souk. If you’ve ever dreamed of a wedding day in Morocco, these photos by Igor Demba are ones to add to your inspiration board!
Cara & Shaun
Le Palais Paysan, Morocco, Marrakech
As soon as I got engaged I knew I wanted a Berta dress. On a trip to New York I visited their new store and I found my dress. I went alone and bought it off the rack straight away. I am lucky that my bridesman and best friend is also an incredible make up artist. He knew exactly the look I wanted and I loved how my make up looked in real life and in pictures.
I loved our initimate ceremony in a hidden riad in the Medina. After the ceremony we went up to the beautiful roof terrace with our guests and everyone was blown away.
We wanted our wedding guests to experience a different culture. Shaun and I are both from London but live in Dubai. I also have African heritage. We felt Marrakech had the perfect blend of Arabic and African culture. We are all about good vibes and lots of fun. We wanted to go on a little adventure with our closest friends and family.
We wanted to make sure everyone had a good time with not too much waiting around. We didn’t want it to be too traditional but also wanted to make sure it felt like a wedding. Making sure people were fed and always had a drink in their hand was very important to us.
We wanted a mix between the culture of the Medina and the scenery of the Atlas Mountains. On a trip to Marrakech we spent the day walking around the Medina, visiting different riads. Everyone was so welcoming. As soon as we walked into Ryad Dyor we knew it was special. Le Palais Paysan blew us away because of the architecture and the Atlas Mountain View’s.
