Ara­bian Nights in Ra­bat…

Emirates Bride - - REAL WEDDINGS - Pho­tog­ra­pher: Et­tore Franceschi

FFilled with whim­si­cal ro­mance and joy, Maha and Tami’s bo­hemian wed­ding in Mo­rocco had an earthy, vin­tage feel that was si­mul­ta­ne­ously ca­sual and el­e­gant – ex­actly what the bride had al­ways en­vi­sioned. Fab­rice, one of Mo­rocco’s top wed­ding plan­ners shares his ex­pe­ri­ence of plan­ning and de­sign­ing the multi-day fes­tiv­i­ties. “When we first con­sulted with Maha, she was clear about one thing – she wanted her wed­ding to be ‘per­fectly im­per­fect’ and re­laxed. We ac­cepted her chal­lenge and pro­duced a fun des­ti­na­tion wed­ding in Ra­bat in­spired by the leg­endary tales of One Thou­sand and One Nights. We drew in­spi­ra­tion for ev­ery as­pect of the event’s de­sign from the beauty of the lo­cal cul­ture – the colours, the aro­mas, the sites and the sounds. Each de­tail, from the rich ta­pes­tries to the pro­fes­sional en­ter­tain­ment was in­fused with the beauty of Mo­rocco,” he shared. From the eclec­tic lanterns sus­pended among the twin­kling fairy lights, to the vin­tage fur­ni­ture to the charm­ingly mis­matched ar­range­ments, the laid­back vibe re­flected the cou­ple’s per­son­al­ity and was a glimpse into their beau­ti­ful re­la­tion­ship. Maha and Tami’s ta­blespaces fea­tured a cool mix of vin­tage glass bot­tles dou­bling as vases, with lo­cal wild­flow­ers and can­dles to fur­ther au­then­ti­cate the at­mos­phere. Guests were treated to an ex­quis­ite, multi-course meal af­ter which the new­ly­weds cut their enor­mous mas­ter­piece wed­ding cake in a grand fash­ion, then danced the night away sur­rounded by all of the peo­ple they loved.
