Timeless and Elegant Desert Elopement in Morocco

September 1st, 2021

Kimora and Cedric’s luxurious, timelessly elegant desert elopement in Morocco was exquisitely intimate, thoughtfully heartfelt and full of memorable moments. The couple are from Maryland, USA, and we helped them plan a bijou wedding with their close family. It was their first time visiting the enchanting Red City, and they left having had an amazing experience they will never forget!

The day before their desert elopement in Morocco, we organised for them a pre-wedding photoshoot session. This was not only a fun activity, but also allowed them time to settle in and explore the city and all it has to offer in a more casual setting. They also had a chance to get to know their wonderful photographer, Maria Rāo. When we plan your Marrakech wedding we always work with only the best local and international suppliers, who we trust to deliver on the high standards of quality and detail we (and you) expect.

An Intimate Marrakech Wedding

Kimora and Cedric stayed in a beautiful authentic riad in the Medina, Riad Orangeraie, with its secret ‘retreat’ vibe. An oasis of peace and quiet, the riad was perfect for Kimora and Cedric to get ready in on their wedding morning. The bride looked like a film star in her elegant and glamorous bridal look, and the groom matched their ‘marsala and blush’ wedding theme in a colourful suit! They made a dashing couple, and their first look in the riad’s courtyard was romantic and touching.

We then made our way out of the city’s heart, towards their desert elopement in Morocco’s ceremony. Their family gathered to witness their simple ceremony, under an arch adorned with drapes and flowers in their colour scheme. The couple and their whole family then met the desert’s famous residents, the camels, taking unforgettable rides across the camp ! After their once in a lifetime activity, it was time for the wedding reception.

Luxury Agafay Desert Wedding

Kimora, Cedric and their guests arrived at their luxury Agafay Desert tent to the sound of music, and sat down for their wedding meal. The table was decorated with an intriguing mixture of decor; the bride brought some decor pieces with her from the USA, and we complemented them with our own local decor and artisan items for a beautiful blend of aesthetics. The guests sat, ate, laughed and enjoyed family time together over a 3 course meal accompanied by music. The sun set over their desert elopement in Morocco as they ate, and after dusk they danced by candlelight together.

The final event of the wedding day was a spectacular fire show, which the couple and their guests enjoyed from their desert tent. In the days following their intimate wedding in Marrakech, Kimora and Cedric enjoyed lots of different activities in beautiful Marrakech with their family, taking in the atmosphere and culture of the city.
