A Touch of Moroccan Design Wedding Inspiration

January 27, 2017 - by Preeti

We have a sweet and rustic styled shoot for you today! Inspired by Moroccan elements, this outdoor wedding inspiration brought out damask patterns, lanterns in muted shades.

The bride has a necklace cum maang tikka with an elegant vintage wedding dress. The groom has a dapper three piece hounds-tooth suit.

This is not your average styled shoot as the model couple is actually a real couple. And their love definitely shows through!

What I love about this shoot, is that it pulls elements from Moroccan architecture and design into a wedding. It is not however, Moroccan wedding in style or religion, which makes this a great inspiration for whatever rustic type wedding you have.

Photographer Tara Draper shares with us the concept behind the shoot.

Moroccan lanterns, shapes and patterns mixed well with the fallen leaves and neutral fall colors. The look both simple, elegant and yet a bit seductive styled by Neira Event Group.

It starts with the bride, who wore an off the shoulder Maggie Soterro gown from Brides and Belles that features a low back and intricate details common in the Moroccan tradition. The fairway Grove at Chula Vista Resort in Wisconsin Dells set the mood for a perfect ceremony secluded in between tall oak trees and nature. Existing symmetrical wedding arches were dressed with eucalyptus, lanterns, rugs and pillows.

The table escape featured a hanging wood plank, with hanging lanterns, greenery and some grapes. On the table place cards which doubled as a wedding favor of almonds (not only a wedding tradition here but native to Morocco) created by Sugar Pear Designs who also designed the invitations.

Wood chargers, plates and the menus brought in the traditional geometric shapes. Grapes were added to the centerpieces as conversation starter and who doesn't like when things are edible?

The delicious cake (we can vouch for taste, we ate it) done by Taylor Cakes tied the loose ends with more Moroccan shapes done in fondant and a shimmery gold.
