modern moroccan-inspired wedding

From Be Loved Events + Design “The design of the photo shoot was influenced by the beautiful details seen in traditional Moroccan weddings. Taking cues from this, we created something fresh and modern that fit our couple’s personality.

The floral design brought in bright splashes of color and elegance. Dark chocolate truffles paired with a cake decorated with traditional patterns and colorful chocolate sails added decadence in the form of simplicity. White pillows & textiles with varying textures were reminiscent of Moroccan wedding blankets and the bride’s dress is probably one of my favorite additions, with long sleeves and illusion lace details! Luckily, Archer Inspired was there to photograph it all.

“We wanted to showcase a wedding dress with long sleeves and a sleek silhouette. We quickly found a gown from Essence of Australia that was the perfect fit for our bride. We chose a custom suit and accessories from Franco Uomo for our groom; they’re known for modern, bold looks and elegant style which is exactly what we were looking for.”

We added bright colors to the floral design but kept it subtle to bring in a modern touch. King Proteas, Juliet Garden Roses, and Monstera Leaves were among the florist Dubon Floral Design’s picks. The cake was decorated with Moroccan inspired patterns and we paired it with dark chocolate truffles to add even more indulgence. Our Thank You signs were from an Etsy shop called Repurposed Shine which specializes in custom decor and wedding items and our stationery was handmade and decorated with gold flakes & calligraphy by The Baum Creative.”
