When we think of a Moroccan elopement, here’s immediately what will come to mind:
The red walls of the city, built between 1122–1123, and various buildings constructed in red sandstone during this period, have given it the nickname Red City. Between the red, sandy desert hills and the charming blend of Moroccan tradition + French chic-style, we too are hooked on this green oasis of charm in a major city of the Kingdom of Morocco: Marrakesh
Nicola of Nicola Dixon Photography teamed up with the folks at AK Weddings + Wild Ones on this desert love duo inspiration workshop, and it’s truly warming us up inside! Major Moroccan elopement inspiration – done two ways: one in the dashing Beldi Country Club, the other in the magical Moroccan desert. Let the natural details and minimal (but quality) styling of this workshop take you on a sweet, little journey.
Nicola Dixon Photograhy, to the Red City we go!
Queen of the Moroccan Desert
She really is queen of the Moroccan desert! The bridal accessories – specifically the bridal crown designed by Tilly Thomas Lux, pays homage to the mistress of the hunt, archery and the moon. It’s all adorned with Swarovski crystals, mother of pearl and plated in 18 carat gold. Bend the knee to this style success!
It’s a minimal yet stunning bridal hair + makeup look by Amy George Makeup! We love the rich dark waves paired with those white, tassel earrings.
Simply Put: Elope Here
Imagine riding camelback through the magical Moroccan desert, and taking a quick pitstop to get married against the unparalleled backdrop of this desolate sunset. Amazing, right? Sign us up!
All you really need for an elopement tablescape are smart details that pop, like these gorgeous macrame chargers, and the cool seating in these authentic Moroccan poufs.
Elopement Story No. 2
Boho Bridal Beauty
More neutral, bohemian florals from AK Weddings. We’re particularly loving the bleached ruscus and pampas combo.
Itching to take a shimmy in that Coco wedding dress from Grace Loves Lace? It’s decadent, intriguing + completely unexpected – made for the woman who oozes confidence + effortless sophistication. Furthermore, we just remembered to add more terra cotta into our lives!
Elopement Reception Tablescape
More bohemian tablescape details that create such a warm, inviting look! To illustrate that vibe, they’ve added romantic, soft-lit Moroccan lanterns, neutral hanging garland + rich-colored, textured pillows to cozy up with.
It’s safe to say that Marrakesh is our new Moroccan muse. If you’re especially smitten like us, check out this modern monochrome white out inspiration with neutral accents!
