Mountains & Morocco – A Desert Landscape Styled Elopement: Raquel and Miguel
Mountains & Morocco: A Desert Landscape Styled Elopement
We travelled for an hour from Marrakech to get to Inara Camp in the desert of Morocco for this shoot. The desert wasn’t your typical sandy desert but more grainy in texture.

We arrived at the site and was greeted by the owner of Inara Camp where he showed us the facilities and introduced us to the local camp people who help to maintain the grounds. The camp was newly built and has all the modern facilities one would expect of any hotel. Every room was luxurious with stunning views of the mountains and desert landscape.
Raquel and Miguel proceeded to get ready whilst the local camp people helped bring the camel to the shooting spot. Raquel’s dress was a beautiful bohemian (boho) Shikoba chiffon maxi skirt that created a wonderful silhouette against the wind and the fringing landed itself well to the Moroccan vibe. Miguel kept it simple and added braces to his outfit for a modern boyish look.
The stationery palette designed by Wonderland Invites was a mix of earthy tones contrasted against purples and reds to complement their Moroccan wedding theme and there were even some tassels added to different pieces to add a touch of flair.
The couple exchanged vows to each other under a simple rustic arch as the sun sets – confirming their future as husband and wife in the simplest of settings but with all the love and deepest feelings of any newly-wed couple.
They toasted their next step of life with some more mint tea (they simply can’t get enough of it!) before whispering all their heart’s desires and wishes into a sky lantern and setting it out into the night sky as the day came to an end.
We warmed ourselves at the campfire before driving back to the hustle and bustle of Marakesh town centre and leaving the peaceful desert surroundings behind.
What an incredible Morccan elopement. I absolutely adore this desert wedding inspiration.
