Morocco is a great place for a destination wedding and there are so many beautiful places to have it.
When Xavier and Diana happened upon Surf Maroc’s boutique oceanfront hotel, Amouge, they knew it was the perfect location for their intimate, destination wedding.
Xavier and Diana met five years ago through work and a few years later Xavier proposed to Diana on a seaplane! They live in France and run their own media business together. For their wedding celebration, they invited 40 of their closest friends and family.
Amouge by Surf Maroc has a beautiful backdrop for intimate ceremonies and as photographers, we were thrilled with the beautiful soft lighting in the space. One of Xavier and Diana’s close friends MC’d the ceremony and different family members, friends, Xavier’s son Sasha, and the couple share throughout the ceremony and then exchanged rings.
There was lots of laughter and a few happy tears, and it was evident how excited everyone was for Xavier and Diana.
Following the ceremony there were cocktails out on the beach as the sun set. Xavier and Diana’s wedding reflected their own laidback nature and desire for a relaxed, joyful atmosphere. After the cocktails, guests gathered on the terrace for dinner, which consisted of traditional Moroccan favorites – tajine, couscous, and Moroccan salad, all catered by Surf Maroc.
The rest of the evening consisted of a slideshow presentation and video, the cake cutting, toasts, and the evening ended with dancing under the moonlight.
Surf Maroc provided all of the catering and decorating for the event, and it was absolutely beautiful. If you’re looking for a turnkey wedding destination, check out Amouge.
