Tami & Alan ♥ Marrakech, Morocco
Photographer: Andreas Holm
Today’s real bride Tami envisaged ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ theme for her and her hubby-to-be’s wedding in Marrakech…and it certainly turned out dreamy!
Tami and her bridesmaids wore delicate Temperley gowns as they walked down the aisle lined with olive trees and candles, before the wedding party moved on to enjoy a night under the stars in a gorgeous garden setting.
“Apart from chosing the wine, all the planning was done between myself and my wedding planners Rosena and Fred from Boutique Souk. The highlight was walking down the aisle with my Dad, seeing Alan at the front, all our friends and family and my little boy. I was amazed at how the church had been transformed by Boutique Souk into my dream, full of olive trees and candles!”
“English bride, Tami had her heart set on a Midsummer’s Night Dream styled wedding and chose magical Marrakech for its lush garden settings and warm climate so the reception could take place under the stars. Tami and Groom Alan, chose an exotic palm and olive grove setting with a Moroccan tented afterparty for the reception. The ceremony was celebrated at the Catholic Church of Marrakech.”

Marrakech is an exotic choice for a destination wedding, it has become increasingly hip due to the all-year-round sunshine, stunning venues and locations – palaces, riads, spectacular gardens filled with roses, palm trees and olive trees and of course low cost travel making it accessible for you and your guests.
Morocco is right up there on the list of most desirable short-haul destinations. Situated three short hours flight away from the UK, enjoying pleasant year-round temperatures, an abundance of culture to appreciate and ancient cities to explore, Morocco and Marrakech are fantastic places to visit and create a charming destination wedding location.
As well as the must-visit maze-like streets and the intense hustle and bustle of the souks of Marrakech, the enchanting Yves Saint Laurent Majorelle Gardens and beautiful Berber Museum are very much worth calling in on. The spectacular Atlas Mountains are a mere 40 miles away from Marrakech, making them an easy (as well as unforgettable) day trip.
Many couples stay on after their wedding and enjoy their honeymoon in Morocco. Some choose to travel around, spending a night in the desert in a tent under the stars mixed with some luxury resort hotels in the mountains or at the coast for some pampering. Boutique Souk is an ABTA registered Travel Agency so we can coordinate honeymoons as well as guest accommodation for the wedding.
