Capturing Modern Romance in Marrakech: A Destination Styled Shoot at Beldi Country Club

Are you ready to see one of the most incredible destination wedding venues I’ve ever been to? A couple of years ago, I photographed a destination styled shoot at the breath-taking Beldi Country Club wedding venue in Marrakech. Nestled amidst the vibrant colours and rich culture of Morocco, it’s only 10 minutes from the centre of Marrakech. Beldi Country Club proved to be a haven of beauty and charm, offering a picturesque backdrop for any couple’s dream wedding. I can’t believe I haven’t shared this yet!

Discovering Beldi Country Club

Stepping into Beldi Country Club is like entering a Moroccan oasis. Surrounded by 15 hectares of lush gardens, elegant architecture, and traditional Moroccan decor, this venue exudes an undeniable sense of romance and sophistication. From intimate ceremonies to grand celebrations, Beldi Country Club provides a versatile canvas for couples to create their perfect wedding day. I really loved the walls of terracotta and bougainvillea flowers. They really added a pop of colour!

The Glasshouse

One of its most iconic features is the stunning glasshouse. A captivating space that bathes in natural light, it creates an ethereal atmosphere perfect for ceremonies or receptions. This glasshouse served as the centrepiece of the vision for this styled shoot, providing a breath-taking backdrop for our modern wedding inspiration. A real WOW factor! The initial ceremony setup was later transformed into an intimate dinner setting, showing the true versatility of the space and its potential for a real wedding day.

Elevating the Space

To further enhance the ambiance of the glasshouse, in collaboration with the talented artist Mia Sylvia, was a fabric installation piece which added an extra layer of elegance to the room. The interplay of light and fabric transformed the glasshouse into a mesmerising sanctuary, elevating every photo I took.

Modern Wedding Inspiration

Featuring stunning designs by Shikoba Bride and Wilden London, the shoot showcased how contemporary fashion can harmonize effortlessly with the timeless charm of Marrakech. From flowing silhouettes to ruffle and puff details, the dresses epitomised elegance and sophistication. True inspiration for couples seeking a fashion-forward yet romantic look for their destination wedding in Morocco.
