Pulling inspiration from two of the most visually enchanting stories, Idia and Will’s glamorous Moroccan wedding aspired to showcase the dreamy aesthetic of The Secret Garden and the glitzy romance of The Great Gatsby. Stunning bride Idia wore an elegant veil with a vintage lace headpiece that stole the show and perfectly complemented the overall theme. Natan Fotografia captured the incredible Marrakech venue and exquisite styling, as well as sweet moments shared by the newlyweds.
Idia and Will
Dar Ayniwen, Marrakech, Morocco
Once we had set our sights on Morocco, there was only one venue — Dar Ayniwen — set in the ‘Palmeraies’ area of Marrakech. Dar Ayniwen has a beautiful garden, and we wanted our guests, who were coming from all over the world (the US, Europe, Asia and Africa), to dine and party outside.
Inspiration for the wedding theme and fashion was Secret Garden meets Great Gatsby, so although relaxed and natural, we wanted bow ties, cocktail dresses and chandeliers.
There were many! Seeing Idia walking down the aisle, she looked amazing! Enjoying our caleche ride from the church to the venue. Performing our first dance.
The Couple Recommends:
Stephane – the owner of Dar Ayniwen – a brilliant host and now friend. We did not have a wedding planner but working with Stephane remotely did not disappoint. Stephane hosted us all in his former family home/boutique hotel for our entire stay, he sourced the chandeliers and set up all the decoration at the venue and ensured the food was delicious. You can trust Stephane – highly recommended.
