For us, the highlight of photographing an event as special as a wedding, is getting to know the bride and groom and capturing this milestone in their relationship. It didn’t take long for us to know that Timothee and Sabile are a well matched pair. They’re both genuine, classy and thoughtful. We were delighted to film and photograph their henna party and wedding.
Timothee and Sabile met while working in Dubai, but decided to have their big wedding celebration in Sabile’s home country, Morocco. We love when couples combine their cultures and create a day that is uniquely theirs.
Their wedding was held at a quiet riad tucked away in the Marrakech Palmerie. The celebration started with a western wedding ceremony held outside in the garden. It was a special time for Timothee and Sabile to share what they loved about one another and exchange their rings.
Following the ceremony, Sabile changed out of her wedding gown into one of four beautiful Kaftans that she would wear during the evening. With the dress change came the transition into Moroccan wedding traditions along with more western traditions like the bouquet toss, first dance, and the cake cutting.
Their day was filled with beautiful details. The lanterned lined drive. Carriages bringing guests to the ceremony. A creative seating chart with all of the cities represented at the wedding.
But what we remember from the day are the moments. Sabile’s father dancing with his granddaughter, Timothee’s face when he saw Sabile walking down the aisle, the laughter shared between Sabile and her sisters, Timothee’s mother fixing his tie, all of the dancing and laughter of their guests, who traveled in from around the world to celebrate this special couple.
These are the moments most worth capturing. These moments testify to the love and affection surrounding Timothee and Sabile.
