Dar Ayniwen, Laura & Jade’s wedding, Marrakesh
I’ve never been to Morrocco and to say photographing a three day wedding on the outskirts of Marrakesh would be an experience I won’t forget is no overstatement. It was an incredible experience, all curated by the lovely Laura and Jade. We met in London before the day and went through the details and despite the size of the celebrations the overriding sense was this would be an occasion that had at it’s heart a great sense of warmth and togetherness. Two of the intangible things I love to photograph reflected in sometimes subtle ways through weddings.
We started with a party the evening before the wedding which set the tone days to follow. The Saturday was non-stop and went well into the early hours as Moroccan celebrations do. Even my taxi driver was excited I was going to a wedding. This was a beautiful wedding at Dar Ayniwen. Morroco has colour in every corner and this venue is no exception. The wedding was fun, energetic and incredibly visual. I hope be a Marrakesh wedding photographer again as soon as possible.
A quick sneak peek of what was an amazing experience centred in the beautiful spaces of the area known as the Palmeraie is below:
Weddings at Dar Ayniwen have an amazing choice of spaces. The front encased in a barrier of stunning palms which further into the grounds there hides an amazing courtyard where the ceremony took place. At the side of the main house are formal gardens in the style of the Jardin Majorelle beautiful lines of symmetry enclosed in red walls and dotted with fountains.
If you are looking for a Marrakech wedding photographer I would love to hear from you. If you would like to view more, this wedding at the Wilderness Reserve also had an amazing energy with a brilliant Zimbabwean band.
