Think Lawrence of Arabia meets an Officer And A Gentleman. That’s the impact this wedding had on me and by the end of their cinematic wedding trailer (below) my eyes were filled with tears. This unique wedding is packed full of alternative, non-traditional details from the sunset vows in the sands of the desert to the beautiful dress Sacha wore. This is a stunning example of just how to make your wedding, your story!
“I had always had a little bit of an obsession with travel and new places, My mind filled with romantic notions of Morocco. So when it came to deciding where to get married, the UK didn’t even enter our minds, we were always going to get married abroad. Being wedding photographers ourselves, we knew what we wanted from our own wedding and one of the most important things was the setting.
I found La Pause through Marrakesh Weddings, the company that put me in contact with all things Moroccan. As soon as I saw their website, I knew it had to be there, completely outdoors, in the Agafay Desert during a sunset ceremony, that we said our vows.
Jmayel and I went out to visit and arrange the finer details such as entertainment and food 6 months before the wedding. Our 31 guests all had a weekend in Morocco for the wedding. We had belly dancers, fire eaters and us and all our guests released sky lanterns into the star filled sky. We danced in the desert until almost dawn. It was one of the most amazing times of our lives and people are still talking about it a year later. We have just celebrated our 1st anniversary but it still feels like yesterday that we were in Morocco, the memory of the day still alive.
Two days after the wedding we drove from Marrakesh into the Sahara desert with 7 friends where Jmayel and I photographed our own ‘Trash the Dress/Sahara wedding shoot’ before we flew off on our honeymoon to the Greek Island of Crete.”

I’ve just watched the video for the second time and I still welled up with tears! Beautiful, so, so beautiful!
Jmayel and Sach are the super talented, now husband and wife team that are Eden Exposed. And lucky me will be featuring more of their real weddings and TTD shoots as well as their cinematography on Alice In Weddingland very soon.
But wait there’s still more, on the unique wedding blog tomorrow… their stunning Trash The Dress shoot in the Sahara Desert!
