Wow! We’re totally swooning over Cara and Shaun’s breathtaking multicultural Marrakech wedding at Le Palais Paysan. The couple’s goal was to make sure their family and friends had a great time—with a drink in hand throughout the entire day! We love the laid-back vibe that’s mixed with touches of glam and gold decor planned by Boutique Souk. If you’ve ever dreamed of a wedding day in Morocco, these photos by Igor Demba are ones to add to your inspiration board!
Cara & Shaun
Le Palais Paysan, Morocco, Marrakech
As soon as I got engaged I knew I wanted a Berta dress. On a trip to New York I visited their new store and I found my dress. I went alone and bought it off the rack straight away. I am lucky that my bridesman and best friend is also an incredible make up artist. He knew exactly the look I wanted and I loved how my make up looked in real life and in pictures.
I loved our initimate ceremony in a hidden riad in the Medina. After the ceremony we went up to the beautiful roof terrace with our guests and everyone was blown away.
We wanted our wedding guests to experience a different culture. Shaun and I are both from London but live in Dubai. I also have African heritage. We felt Marrakech had the perfect blend of Arabic and African culture. We are all about good vibes and lots of fun. We wanted to go on a little adventure with our closest friends and family.
We wanted to make sure everyone had a good time with not too much waiting around. We didn’t want it to be too traditional but also wanted to make sure it felt like a wedding. Making sure people were fed and always had a drink in their hand was very important to us.
We wanted a mix between the culture of the Medina and the scenery of the Atlas Mountains. On a trip to Marrakech we spent the day walking around the Medina, visiting different riads. Everyone was so welcoming. As soon as we walked into Ryad Dyor we knew it was special. Le Palais Paysan blew us away because of the architecture and the Atlas Mountain View’s.
Congratulations, Carra and Shaun, and many thanks to Junebug member Igor Demba for sharing their day at Le Palais Paysan with us! For more of Igor’s work, be sure to visit Igor’s page in our directory of the world’s best wedding photographers.

Jeanne and Billy’s opulent greenhouse wedding at Beldi Country Club in Marrakesh is everything that whimsical and chic destination dreams are made of! Because of the bride’s love for the desert, Jeanne and Billy—with the help of Hello Events—held a desert party the evening before tying the knot in one of the most Insta-worthy venues we have ever seen (and we’ve seen a lot). Photographer Lorenzo Accardi perfectly captured all the small details. From the lush greenery of the venue to the heartwarming emotions of the ceremony to the lantern-lit reception, complete with smoke bombs these photos are to die for. If you’ve been fantasizing about a destination wedding, one look at these photos will have you adding Morocco to your list!

Why the Beldi Country Club
I am in love with the desert because of my oriental origin (perhaps). I love Marrakech so much. The mood. The colors. And the city allowed us to begin with the desert. We choose the Beldi Country Club because the mood and place are unique. There are no two places like this hotel.
Working with Lorenzo Accardi
The photographer was amazing and very professional. We were in love with his style. He explained where he wanted to shoot and when to do the shooting to get the best results. His touch is really personal. The results were bigger than we expected. Now we have the best souvenirs of those days.
Congratulations to Jeanne and Billy on their opulent greenhouse wedding at Beldi Country Club! Thank you to Lorenzo Accardi for not only shooting incredible photos but for sharing them with Junebug.
