Sofia and Alex’s desert wedding at La Pause and Hotel Fellah in Marrakech was not your typical wedding. It was an eclectic mix of traditional Moroccan vibes and boho laid back charm. Guests from all over the world traveled in to attend the ceremony which was held in the dramatic landscape overlooking the vast Moroccan wilderness.
La Pause, located about 30 km outside of Marrakech. The place seems to be embedded in the sand dunes, camels and goats roam around towards the oasis below as we arrive. It’s like straight from the old saga “A Thousand and One Nights”. We see the Agafay hills from the highest point and the sun is blazing down on our heads as we discover the lovely guest houses. And there is a pool!
The bride and groom planned their wedding in Morroco by themselves. Having a large number of guests, multiple ceremonies, and extraordinary artists performing, they did a fabulous job. A destination wedding in the desert is no simple project, and to organize a wedding in Marrakech, from Europe and the US, makes this event even further impressive. It was brilliantly put together!
The ceremony was conducted by the groom’s sister. The father of the bride and the father of the groom gave heartfelt speeches. Following the service, the guest went to the top of the powdery hills where local Moroccan musicians played and refreshments were served. Everybody then wandered down to the oasis where dinner and additional rituals took place. The arrival of the bride (in a Moroccan dress) and groom being held up in a thrown by 4 men, was a great part of the festivities.
We want to thank our beautiful couple, as wells as all the extraordinary wedding professionals involved making this an occasion to remember.
