Also known as the 21st district of Paris, Marrakech has became over the past few years a top destination for luxury wedding. A very short 3 hours flight away from Paris, and a brand new international airport coming up in a few months, it makes the perfect city to exchange your vows and celebrate your love.

If you are thinking about getting married in the magical Morocco, Sumptuous Events, the premiere luxury destination wedding agency in Europe, will help you create the magic you are looking for ! Our team will show you the mystery and luxury of the Red city ! Our local office, expertise and creativity will make your dreams come true. Acting as a concierge and working with the best local suppliers, let us plans your magical wedding !

The city’s compositional attractions are the famous Jemaa el Fna, a fantastic open space in the focal point of the city,  that stage  moving circles of spectators accumulate round gatherings of trapeze artists, storytellers and interesting carnival acts. The sublime ruin of the El Badi Palace, the Saadian Tombs, the enchanting Yves Saint Laurent Majorelle Gardens as famous as its signature blue color, and at last but not least, the Koutoubia Minaret, which is probably the best Islamic landmark in North Africa .

Like all Moroccan urban communities, Marrakech is a town of two parts: the antiquated walled Medina and the provincial Ville Nouvelle, manufactured by the French in the mid-twentieth century. Why not combine both, a luxury wedding with some traditional touches.
