MOROCCO

Elopement in the Desert 

This beautiful elopement ceremony in the Sahara desert sorrounded by sand dunes and wind, so romantic and wild, this is a nomadic souls dream. Exchanging vows in a far away land following no rules or conventions. Off to an adventure just you and your love.

The  ceremony was set in a romantic yet abandoned Moroccan Palace away from everything in the heart of Morocco. Moroccan architecture dates back to 110 BC,  its mud brick buildings and moorish influence reflect diverse waves of settlers. Even in the heart of the desert our hearts beats faster amongst crumbling ruins and carved wood doors. 

 

 

The use of color in the inspiration is very symbolic: turquoise fabric mimics the movement of water, an unexpected element in the saharan desert sands. The " carnet de voyage" - travel journal - records with watercolored sketches a journey of love found, the union of two souls, the powerful inner explosion of finding your companion for life.

Watercolor artwork was inspired by beduin rugs with their earth colored base contrasted with turquoise and gold accents. 

Hand made paper, vintage moroccan stamps, sepia calligraphy, gold pigments and blush /  turquoise inks were weaved into the travel journals, vow books, invitation suite and menus.
