We’ve got a pretty shot to share with you today that combines the elegance of a country house wedding in England with the eclectic glamour and style of Moroccan decor.
A tiered cake with fresh linens, a manor house backdrop, and blue and orange tones, along with tiled accents and glistening items, are arranged against a background of tiled touches, glistening objects, and blue and orange shades.
Hannah McClune Photography conceived the shoot with help from Serendipity Wedding Planning & Coordination. A host of talented vendors were also involved.
This shoot is full of gorgeous ideas, whether you are looking for inspiration on a cool blue color, glistening styles, or adding a little wanderlust to your wedding décor.
Before you scroll down, take a moment to read about the inspiration behind Hannah McClune’s photography.
Weddings inspired by exotic travel have always been appealing to me. I love the exoticism of Morocco.
I assembled a team of trusted suppliers to help me make my vision a reality.
The styling was meant to be soft, delicate and beautiful. Modern and romantic. The dreamy theme suits my light, airy photography style.
Designed by Paperknots the, ‘Karima” collection captures the essence of Morocco. Its rustic charm is combined with a touch of glamour.
The collection revolves around an Arabian tiled pattern with vivid colors and eye-catching detail. The design can also be used on the inside of your pochette folding envelope and again on the reverse of invites.
The decorative border around the wedding details is created using elements of the tiles.
A modern Moroccan Riad inspires the palette. It uses bright, fresh colors instead of the traditional oranges and reds. The shimmering royal blue envelopes add an extra touch of luxury.
This set includes a name tag for guests, envelope seal stickers that match the guest name tags, and address labels.
Melissa Woodland Cakes designed a five-tiered cake with a soft shade of blue and a Moroccan quatrefoil.
The cake is modern and classic, with a cascade of sugar flowers.
Rachael from Serendipity Weddings styled the reception setting by using classic white linen, simple white china, and elegant silverware, as well as a mix of textured glassware and gold-colored glassware, all hired through Classic Crockery.
Moroccan touches and traditional glass lanterns were used to add Moroccan flair. Judy’s calligraphy was also used on place cards.
Academy Furniture Hire provided the ghost chairs used in the tablescapes and the entire shoot. These chairs are modern and stylish with their clean lines.
To create this look, we used flowers in ivory, blue, and yellow with a splash of yellow and iris inky to give a nod to Morocco.
The bride carried an elegant bouquet that was hand-tied and finished with turquoise ribbon.
We created a foliage garland for the table, which we decorated with Moroccan lanterns. The flowers were placed in beautiful glass dishes to add a pop of color.
The escort cards created by Judy Broad calligraphy are a beautiful display of escort cards that will help guests find their seats at dinner. They use pretty blue and green colors on Moroccan-style ceramic tiles.
Rachael decorated the mint tea tins for the couple’s wedding favors by decorating them with white and mustard twine and Lisa’s quirky stickers ‘Mint to Be.’
The Hair & Makeup
The makeup was soft but defined. Natural skin with nude lips & blushing cheeks.
To add definition and pop to the eyes, we used warm chocolate browns & soft golds.
The hair was soft and romantic. The hair was twisted and pinned to create a messy look. The style was glammed up with a hair vine.
Sophie Grace Bridal selected a beautiful gown called Marci Rose by Diane Legrand.
It is the epitome of vintage boho style, combining a gorgeous embellished bodice and a fluid chiffon midi skirt. A timeless style with a hint of glamour is a great combination.
Donna Crain supplied the Aurelio vine hair, the green-and-gold comb, Elle, and a necklace named Grace. She also provided rose gold drop earrings.
Stress3Hire opted to pair the black tuxedo with a slim-fitting white shirt, creating a formal yet modern groom’s outfit. Instead of a traditional pined-buttonhole, the stylish suits were complimented by a row in the pocket.
What do you think? We always advise couples to match their decor to their wedding venue. However, we’re amazed at how small touches can have a huge impact.
