magical Marrakesh Wedding

Indian weddings are renowned for their richness and scope. They are often full-scale, multi-day productions executed with opulent designs, attention to tradition and no detail overlooked. They have become synonymous with the beauty and romance of luxury events and have nearly always included a destination element, whether couples traveled abroad to host their soirees, or their many guests traveled to take part. The magical Moroccan wedding of Rishi and Shivani was no exception.

For their luxurious Indian wedding in Morocco, Rishi and Shivani chose Palais Namaskar, a unique palace hotel in Marrakesh. The site is exquisite with the perfect elegant aesthetic for an opulent Indian destination wedding. We designed Rishi and Shivani’s wedding ceremony in classic white and gold. The guest tables were decorated with signature bouquets of natural flowers and white candles on sparkling glass candlesticks.

In Indian culture, couples celebrate Sangeet, a ceremony filled with music and dance that is meant to bring the two families closer together. The elders of each family traditionally select the music that is played at the Sangeet, giving the event extra importance to guests and hosts alike.

 

Rishi and Shivani held their bright and joyful Sangeet the day before their wedding under a luxury tent that we constructed in the middle of the Stone Desert. The color scheme was a rich palette of red and gold denoting wealth and good fortune. The focal pieces were bouquets of scarlet roses and golden elephant figures, the effects of which will forever transform guest expectations of any wedding in the desert. Few had ever seen such a beautiful scene rise up from the desert sand like an oasis.

 

In the center of the Sangeet tent, we situated a large stage with 360-degree visibility, created specifically to highlight traditional dances for all to see and enjoy. At the end of the ceremony, guests released ethereal burning lanterns into the sky, illuminating the night with a romantic glow and adding new stars to the desert canopy.

 

On the same day as the Sangeet, the bride and groom took part in an obligatory ritual of Puja. This Hindu rite is performed to show respect or reverence to a deity and ensure a divine presence at the joining of the couple’s lives on the wedding day. At a ritual of Puja, there is usually a central sculpture, figure, or picture that is said to be filled with the spirit of the families’ chosen god or gods.

Rishi and Shivani chose traditional Indian costumes in shades of pink and gold for the wedding ceremony. Shivani shone in a pale pink sari hand-decorated with embroidery and stones, and Rishi in a traditional costume, complemented by a turban. For the party after the ceremony, the bride chose a blue sari, embroidered with gold patterns, and the groom – a classic outfit of bright blue.

 

We are so pleased with the way that Rishi and Shivani’s Indian Marrakesh destination wedding unfolded, and feel privileged that we were able to be part of their big day.
