Colourful & Decadent Moroccan Nights Wedding Ideas

At the beginning of planning a wedding it can be tricky to pin down an idea and go with it. I hope this afternoon’s feature will assist you a little along the way, as a host of talented suppliers came together to inspire couples with this shoot.

Curious Fair teamed up with Mr & Mrs Unique suppliers to create a Moroccan Nights inspired wedding. With scrumptious delicacies, jewel tones and a lot of style.

Thanks goes to Jessica Withey Photography for providing the imagery this afternoon, here is what Erica from Mr & Mrs Unique had to say;

“I run a wedding directory called Mr & Mrs Unique that focuses on unique, creative and bespoke wedding services. One of the things I love them most about my job is when our listed suppliers want to get together to create a stunning photo shoot.

Natalie from Curious Fair called me to say she had an idea for a gorgeous Moroccan bridal shoot. Curious Fair are bespoke event and handmade wedding designers. They are dedicated to bringing to life creative and bespoke events whilst providing a professional and high quality service, so I knew whatever they were thinking about creating.. it would be amazing!”

Curious Fair: “The idea for a Moroccan shoot came from a meeting via wedding hour with the delicious Mimosa catering. Their food & cafes are inspired by Moroccan cuisine, featuring rich tagines & Moroccan style sharing platters. We wanted to create a styled wedding shoot with a twist, displaying an intimate family feast rather than a structured formal meal. We decided to stick with neutral tones for the styling focusing on reclaimed wood, eclectic silverware, glass vessels, concrete vases & blue and white ceramics.

We chose to design a muted backdrop to set off the vibrancy of the rich colour flowers & Moroccan dishes. We were thrilled when Frieda & Sophia came on board to create the bold & unique floral design. The location was Brixton East, a 19th century converted furniture warehouse. Its original wooden floors and quirky details were the perfect backdrop for this intimate shoot.”

Frieda & Sophia: “The Moroccan theme for the photo shoot was an opportunity for us to use some interesting materials and textures, lots of succulents, cacti, artichoke and unusual foliages. To add a pop of colour we used some blousy blooms of garden roses and dahlias mixed with tropical textured heads of Celosia, Pincushion Protea and Venus Protea.

The two bouquets we produced were very different from one another. One was a large tied bouquet, bright and colourful with mainly flowers and using artichoke and haworthia for interesting textures.  The other was all about texture, a wired teardrop design with different succulents and foliages with a dash of colour brought in with hot pink celosia, white snowberries and yellow craspedia.”

The Beauty Aisle: “For the first look I took inspiration from the deep blue ceramics of Morroco by using a bold navy coloured eyeshadow. I gently sprinkled gold glitter over our model, Emily’s eyelids and let it drop onto the cheeks. I matched the lip colour to the delicious figs and dark pink colours of the flowers used in the shoot.

For the final look I went all-out with the glitter! Completely covering the eyelids with a sparkly metallic sheen whilst using terracotta coloured lipstick to keep the look soft and beautiful.”

Curious Fair: “The focus of the shoot was the Moroccan feast, which we displayed on a long reclaimed wood table. We created varied heights with upturned antique wooden boxes & a variety of traditional Moroccan bowls. We wanted to create an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary Moroccan inspired styling. We mixed antique finds with current pieces from OKA interiors collection & Mimosa’s own decorative plates and bowls. We created bespoke concrete vessels, which we finished with silver leaf, reflecting the textures of Moroccan street life in a contemporary way. Mimosa put together its signature rich & vibrant sharing platters and tagines, perfect for a relaxed affair.

To carry on the relaxed vibe, we styled a Moroccan tea table surrounded by scatter cushions & displaying Mimosa’s colourful Meringues topped with edible flowers. We used an unusual glass teapot from Oka to hold another of Frieda & Sophia’s floral creations as a playful take on the traditional ‘Moroccan tea’.”

    Ah no thank you Natalie :-) Xx

  • I simply love Moroccan weddings. I have been to one in Oxford and they just seems to be so much brighter and friendlier than more traditional weddings. I especially love the low rise furniture, cushions and a nice hookah.
