It’s always an honour to be flown out to a different country to shoot a wedding, and for me, Jo and Warren’s wedding was doubly exciting as it was to be my first trip to Marrakech – a city I’ve always wanted to visit.
Jo & Warren chose Villas Fawakay just outside Marrakech as their wedding venue and I was lucky enough to stay there a couple of days before the wedding getting to know the wedding party and lovely hosts, Dawn and Frances who own the Villas. If you are tied of the unpredictable British weather and are looking for a relaxed, chilled out venue for your wedding then I can only wholeheartedly suggest you consider Villas Fawakay.
Of course Jo looked beautiful, and as usual, a bride in Laboutins never fails to disappoint in the style stakes! Jo even commissioned Dawn to make a shoe sculpture (if you’re wondering what the metal man wearing Laboutins is!) to look after them while the dancing took place!
Shooting in a different environment is always fun, and luckily Jo and Warren were up for heading out into the dusty Morrocan desert for their wedding portrait shots. The sun went down at just the right time and hopefully I’ve managed to evoke a true Moroccan vibe in the photographs!
I’d love to shoot in Morocco again, so if you’re thinking about it, please get in touch to see if I’m available!
