You Mean The World To Me

Lisa and Alex (also known as 2People1Life) are wedding their way around the world in a real wedding adventure, getting hitched in every country that they visit. Read part one and part two of their journey so far.

Nuptials number 45 took them to the magical myriad of maze-like streets that make up the medina of Marrakech, Morocco.

 

The wedding and concierge experts at Boutique Souk arranged a hidden gem of a Riad as the location for this magnificent marriage ceremony. Upon the romantic rooftop of this hideaway hotel, Alex and Lisa said ‘I do’ for the 45th time, with the smell of fragrant roses filling the air and the sun setting over the Atlas Mountains leaving the intense hustle and bustle of the bazaar far below.

Michael and Andrea from Bohemian Weddings talk us through the story:

“After spending some time with Alex and Lisa travelling in Morocco we are now more than happy to call them our good friends. To explain to anyone who does not know the journey they are on, this was not your usual wedding country, venue or couple. We went through a lot together in 8 days, but for now we want to share a beautiful setting that for them was wedding number 45.”

 

“We spent a few days in Essaouira together which gave us a chance to really get to know each other. We then drove from the coast in to Marrakech. The wedding was organised by Boutique Souk at Riad El Fenn, a real oasis in the middle of the Medina, with open spaces, palm trees, pools, spas and wild tortoises!”

 

“After having some fun getting ready in traditional wedding clothing the ceremony was held at sunset on the rooftop with the Medina and beautiful Atlas mountains as a backdrop. Atlas rose lollypops were used as a central place to hold the ceremony and a headscarf was purchased from the market last minute to finish off Lisa’s look.”

 

“After the ceremony Alex and Lisa braved one of the craziest market squares in Africa in full traditional dress! We were all apprehensive but we were met with great reactions from the locals ululating and asking excitedly if Alex and Lisa had just got married. We look forward to sharing more of our journey together in the near future.”
