Are you dreaming of an exotic wedding that combines rich cultural experiences, luxurious accommodations, and breathtaking landscapes? Look no further than Morocco, for an unforgettable destination wedding in Marrakech.

Marrakech, located just a 3.5-hour flight from London, is closer than you think to most European wedding destinations. Its accessibility makes it an ideal choice for couples seeking an exotic, foreign and fashionable wedding escape. In the mid-Sixties, the Stones uncovered the charm of Morocco, a spellbinding allure that had captured the British imagination since Casablanca on our movie screens during the Second World War. To this day, Marrakech maintains its captivating allure, enchanting not just rock stars and celebrities, but also captivating couples from across the globe.

Marrakech, Morocco’s glittering bohemian city, is brighter than ever, boasting a variety of accommodations from traditional riads – a traditional property set around a central courtyard to grand-dame hotels made from marble. Marrakech will appeal to any couples no matter if you prefer a grand wedding or an intimate elopement. There are a myriad of big-name players scattered across Marrakech – The Oberoi, Four Seasons, Palais Namaskar and Mandarin Oriental among them – as well as smaller, independently owned venues offering a fresh take on this frenetic metropolis.

Morocco is a fascinating country, blending Arab and French influences with the indigenous cultures of Berber and nomadic Tuareg. The lingering legacy of Spain adds another layer to its unique charm.  Six decades after gaining independence, Marrakech retains a pungent French influence with its pavement cafes, bistros, and familiar greetings. As one local expressed, the connection between the two cultures is like trying to pull the moon and stars down from the sky.
