Capaldi Hotel Wedding Photography A Destination Wedding Story of Mirele and Omar

Morocco’s name originates from the former capital Marrakech. Travelers are told that if they did not visit Marrakech they did not get to know the real Morocco. Looking back, can we say, that if you did not get married in Morocco, that you did not actually meet the bride. – doesn’t make sense

The wedding in Morocco began quite unusually. The first day was rainy, but no one minded, because the landscape there is amazing, and people are extremely kind and open. A Brazilian bride Mirele and an Indian groom Omar chose Marrakech as their wedding destination because of its diversity, multiculturalism and colourfulness. The wedding was special, because the guests came to the wedding from all over the world.

The newly weds found me on Instagram and enthused me in a second, with their idea of a three-day wedding. I love a challenge and I could be doing three days long wedding photography for a lifetime! And this one was quite big there were 120 guests, but I was excited and ready for the wedding.

On the first day, there was a reception for the first guests in the city centre, followed by lunch where all the guests got acquainted. After lunch there was a friendly gathering along with body painting with henna.  On the second day, a reception for all the other guests took place in The Capaldi Hotel. The most daring guests were soon off camel riding. After that a snake-tamer amazed the guests with his act. In the evening all the guests got to see another Morrocan art – fire-eating, but the climax of the evening was most definitely the pre-wedding party.

The third day was reserved for the most important event – the wedding ceremony. The bride Mirele amazed us with her dress choices throughout all three days, but she saved the best ones for the last day. At first, she shone in a gorgeous white wedding dress with long, transparent veil, along with her elegant husband Omar. At the after-wedding dinner, as a sign of respect for her husbands’ culture, she wore a traditional Indian dress that weighed 12 kgs. Her husband also wore a traditional Indian outfit.

As a big ending to the three days, the newly weds threw a party with a world renowned DJ Samhara, where all electronic music fans danced, and the bride impressed us with a sparkling dress in a Brazilian samba style.

Situated in the hills below Morocco’s stunning Atlas Mountains, The Capaldi Hotel is guaranteed to be something special. For a breathtaking wedding backdrop filled with the most incredible landscape The Capaldi Atlas Hotel is the place to go.

The view takes in everything from the Atlas Mountains to rugged rolling hills, olive groves, the Agafay Desert beyond and the resplendent lush green manicured grounds of the hotel. It is a jaw-dropping and the hotel is every bit as impressive.

To top things off the dazzling city of Marrakech is only 35 minutes drive away, so The Capaldi Hotel offers the opportunity to combine the best of all that makes Marrakech so special.

Tucked away in the tranquil location of Lalla Takerkoust, the vibrant buzz of the city is a forgotten memory once you arrive. Here you can relax, indulge and unwind in the most luxurious setting surrounded by green palms, pure mountain air and the beautiful Lalla Takerkoust Lake which is close by.

The Capaldi Hotel in Atlas is a spectacular luxury, boutique hotel with a warm, friendly atmosphere and a distinct air of elegant indulgence. The facilities are superb and there are a range of impressive spaces that you can use for your celebrations.

Swim in either the mesmerising outdoor pool or the divine heated indoor pool. Discover the wide range of treatments available in the spa complete with a traditional hamman or get lost in the hotel library.

For dining there is a restaurant, bar and lounge area as well as an outdoor terrace with views across the grounds and a beautiful summerhouse. The restaurant is a destination itself that serves up fine, French-inspired gourmet dishes that delight.

When you do decide to emerge from the tranquillity of the hotel, as well as the incredible city of Marrakech to explore, there is also every type of experience on offer for you to enjoy if you choose. Whether you want to hike into the Atlas mountains, partake in watersports on Lalla Takerkoust Lake or take an excursion into the desert – everything is available here.

Accommodation comes in the form of 23 unique cottages with plush, spacious rooms and suites of every type and style. Each cottage is uniquely designed and stylishly decorated. Most cottages come with private outdoor areas and even their own private pools. For you and your partner, the hotel’s sensational bridal suite awaits

When you do get back to your cottage you have no choice but to enjoy some much needed R&R because there are no televisions in any of the hotel’s rooms. Instead you and your guests can enjoy your on-screen entertainment together in the hotel’s cinema – a lovely way to keep the bedroom as a place of rest whilst ensuring that the fun can continue when the sun goes down.

Why Choose Marrakech, Morocco For a Destination Wedding in Africa?

Some cities have an energy so distinct it is palpable, Morocco is one of those. From the heady aromas of spice to the dazzling colours of the goods on display in the Fez, the red-pink earth, the heat of the sun and the cheery calls from one to another – this is a bucket-list destination.

Marrakech has been a top global destination for over 1000 years. There is so much to see, do and taste here it is dazzling. The Sahara Desert forms its borders so you won’t want to miss the chance to explore the infamous sands of the Sahara. The rest is a kaleidoscope of fascinating experiences to sample.

Uncover the city’s infamous souks and alleyways located within the beautiful 11th century Medina. Marvel at the sight of over 100,000 palm trees planted over 900 years ago in Palmeraie. See stylish outdoor design in all its splendour at the Jardin Marjorelle, a resplendent park designed by a fusion of Yves Saint Laurent, Pierre Berge and Jacques Majorelle.

Revel in the wonderful display of style and culture at the Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech. See how royalty used to live at the delightful El Badi Palace. Spot all of the astounding architectural features on display at the Ali Ben Youssef Medersa which was once Northern Africa’s largest place of learning.

And that is only the tip of the iceberg. From sights to food, bars and more, there is an endless array of phenomenal things to do and see in Marrakech. The only problem is knowing where to begin!
