Enchanting Moroccan Photoshoot with Contemporary Bespoke Stationery
With intrepid, wanderlust couples seeking out unforgettable experiences and willing to go off the beaten track with their wedding destination choices, there continues to be a rise in popularity for destination weddings. Morocco is named to be a top wedding destination for 2019, according to the International Wedding Trend Report, along with Italy, Ireland, Mexico and the Napa Valley.
Indeed, it is no coincidence that I was involved in a dreamy Moroccan styled shoot collaboration this time last year, with the lovely and talented Oh What a Day Wedding Photography. ‘The River is Everywhere’ shoot captures the exotic, glamorous and the contrasting raw intrepid setting that Morocco has to offer, combined with distinctive modern cuts.
Opulent Moroccan details, extravagant colours, bustling exotic souks, modern bespoke stationery, contrasted by earth-toned terraces and dramatic dessert dunes – this shoot had it all! Not to mention THE exceptionally glamorous gowns by Viennese Bridal designer Eva Poleschinski. Doris Himmelbauer at Oh What a Day Photographer described the shoot in her interview with “Attire Bridal Magazine” as: “French Orientalist – elegant, fashion forward, brave and yet traditional”.

The bespoke stationery prepared for this shoot drew heavily on inspiration of the destination itself, incorporating a traditional Moroccan lantern-shaped centre panel and pattern, overlaid onto a marbled background of earthy colours – an actual aerial view of a Moroccan dessert-scape! I wanted the stationery to authentically reflect the Moroccan vibe, scenery and traditions, but in a modern way. I like to think that I achieved the balance with this design!
