Weddings are always fun and exciting for everyone. And if it’s a private villa Essaouira wedding, you get more chances to enjoy and have fun. It was such a joy for us to photograph and film Philipp and Ines’ western style wedding in Essaouira. If you don’t know about Eassauoira, then you NEEED to check it out. It’s the quieter, quainter, better version of Marrakech. Check out this one backpacker’s experience. It was an intimate celebration with close family members and friends and was held in a beautiful villa outside of Essaouira.
We first met Philipp and Ines a year earlier and had the opportunity to photograph their engagement session in this same city! So it was such a joy to be back and capture their wedding as well! So much thought was put into each detail of their day and we love the atmosphere they created. The place was beautifully decorated and we were very delighted to see it. Before their ceremony, Philipp and Ines had a first look. We love first looks and the opportunity they create for the bride and groom to have a special moment together before the ceremony.
A BRIEF ABOUT PHILIPP AND INES PRIVATE VILLA ESSAOUIRA WEDDING–
The ceremony was officiated by one of their good friends and we love how personal and meaningful it was. Everything was color-coordinated and the theme of the wedding was already decided. They did every bit to make the private villa Essaouira wedding unique in its own way. Philipp and Ines wrote their own vows, which was really lovely.
Following the ceremony, the bride and groom greeted their guests and celebrated the moment with champagne. Then there were cocktails in the villa’s courtyard with live music. The villa had many beautiful spots for photos and the rooftop was perfect for guest portraits with the bride and groom. The villa was well decorated with different types of flowers which gave us an opportunity to click ravishing pictures of a private villa Essaouira wedding.
The meal was held outside around the pool and was a buffet style with some Moroccan classics. One of my favorite details from Philipp and Ines’ wedding was that each table had the name of a city that was meaningful in their relationship along with photos of them from that city. Guests could find their seating arrangements by looking at a map with tags for each of these cities. This was a very unique idea that added a spark to their private villa Essaouira wedding.
Throughout dinner, speeches were given by close friends and family members. It was so clear how dearly in love Philipp and Ines’ are and how excited their family and friends were to see them married.
There were so many fun elements added to their wedding day! Following the meal, Philipp’s best man had a group game for everyone and later on friends of Philipp’s did a special slideshow and song for the bride and groom. For their cake cutting, they had a sparkler entrance and then cut a cake of cheese. Such a creative idea and a wonderful compliment to the chocolate fondue fountain they also had.
Their first dance was a choreographed swing dance number, and oh my goodness can these two dances! The dance floor was then officially opened and there was lots of dancing. All of their friends, colleagues and family members hit the dance floor and made the wedding more remarkable with their graceful dance moves.
Whenever we’ve photographed a wedding at a venue with a pool, it’s been our secret desire that the bride and groom would choose to jump in at the end of the night. It makes room for some amazing memories and great photos! So we were pretty thrilled when Philipp and Ines’ (with their consent) were thrown into the pool by some of their friends. They were soon joined by many of the guests and it was an amazing end to a special day.
This private villa Essaouira wedding was fun-filled and memorable with a lot of thrill, dance, and fun. Our photography experience was really nice to them and we were very delighted to be a part of this unique wedding.
