Insider tips on Marrakech destination wedding venues

    Jnane Tamsna

    (Jnane is a reference to Paradise in Arabic) and it is indeed the garden of Eden for many of the guests and the owners Meryanne Loum-Martin (interior designer and master of creating unforgetable events) and Gary Martin (ethnobotanist). The Jnane Tamsna experience is blending radiant energy, beautiful colours and a warmth of a home. The beautiful architecture and interior design is combined in the most extraordinary way. If you plan to do your wedding or event at Jnane Tamsna be prepared to unlock many pleasant surprises revealing the stages of the spectacle little by little. And the table settings of Meryanne are second to none in Marrakech.

    Ksar Char-Bagh

    Hidden in the Marrakech palm grove this 14th century regal Riad combines Ottoman opulence and Moorish style. The Palace with its magnificent doors and mosaic carvings of  Andalusian descent, the splendid outdoor area is the fairy tale that comes true for every bride. For me this place is an oasis of peace that could reveal 1001 stories and more at night.

    The Capaldi 

    In the foothills of the Atlas Mountains and just on the edge of the Agafay desert you can find the laid-back rustic luxury hotel The Capaldi. It is a beautiful property with the most spectacular views of the mountains and in close proximity to the lake. If you are looking to have your wedding ceremony in the Agafay desert but do not fancy spending the night in a desert tent the Capaldi offers this unique combination to celebrate in style and comfort with them and at the same time have your Bohemian ceremony in the desert.

    Kasbah Bab Ourika

    The Kasbah is perched on a hilltop revealing 360 degrees exceptional postcard views of the Ourika Valley, The Atlas Mountains, local berber villages, mosques and olive tree groves. Serenity and peace surrounds you.  The Kasbah has beautiful gardens where they also grew their fresh produce. You can enjoy great guided trek, picnics and explore the area. It is one of the most prettiest options for a wedding there are so many terraces, gardens each with a better view than the other.

    Palais Paysan

    If you are passionate about gorgeous mountain views, architecture, design - contemporary and rustic, you will be clearly fascinated by Palais Paysan. The place is nesting in the surrounding area of Akrich berber village. The thing that describes this place for me is “idyllic”. We love to do weddings there.

    Siham and Maria totally rocked as our wedding planners and exceeded our expectations! They brought our Pinterest board to life and showcased a high level of professionalism and were very available throughout the whole process from a distance. They know Marrakech by heart and were able to hooked us up with the coolest vendors, making our big day beyond amazing. We highly recommend Siham and Maria for their exceptional expertise and commitment to making our wedding a remarkable experience.

    Thank you for making our dreams come true!My husband and I are both based in Nigeria, and when we started planning our wedding and we considered Marrakech as our destination venue, we emailed a bunch of wedding planners in the region to see who would work with us. Maria of Party Maroc responded almost immediately to our email which was great because we felt almost defeated that we hadn’t started planning at that point. We signed on with Party Maroc almost immediately and that began our wedding planning journey for almost 9 months. Party Maroc are very thorough in their planning process. They had answers before we even thought of the questions and it made our decision to work with them a lot easier.Maria and Siham (La Perle events) took over the planning of the wedding and I loved that they communicated constantly (and I will miss our chats) , and understood the struggles we had planning a big wedding such as ours. They gave us options for different vendors from their wide array of contacts and found people that understood our brief and our budget. Nothing was too big or too small for them to handle. We worked solely virtually but it felt like we were there in Marrakech planning along side them. They handled our 240 guests with ease and made what could have been a stressful period very stress free.From the guests perspective, they all said our wedding was one of the best destination weddings they’ve ever attended and that everything went smoothly and the entire weekend was fun. It made people who are thinking of a destination event in Marrakech want to plan theirs. There was an abundance of food and drink and fun was had all around. Also at one point we all didn’t want the weekend to end.We planned a wedding weekend with activities that included a welcome dinner on the first day, wedding day on the second day and a post wedding brunch on the third day and we can say that our three day wedding weekend was magical and a dream come true. It was as beautiful as the mood boards and plans indicated, the love and support we felt from all the vendors Maria and Siham curated was evident in how well they handled every aspect of the weekend. We are very grateful they responded to our email and that our paths crossed when it did and we can’t recommend them enough, they’re best planners we’ve ever worked with!Thank you so much for everything!! We love you!Sope + Kayode

Sur Marrakech, il n’y a pas mieux ! J’ai adoré vivre mon mariage, j’ai profité de chaque instant et je n’ai eu à gérer aucun tracas grâce à elles !Merci encore pour tout ! :)

    Maria planned our wedding in Marrakech, November 2023 and we can't thank her enough. She guided us through the process from start to finish and was always quick to respond to any of our queries. As a couple from the UK getting married abroad, we were fortunate to find her - she put is in touch with amazing local and international suppliers and helped to suggest entertainment, special touches which made our wedding stand out from other weddings we, our family and friends have been to. Maria's services have been invaluable, not only for the run up to the wedding but also on the day - she made us so relaxed and we didn't have to worry about a thing. We highly recommend for anybody wishing to get married in Marrakech! Thank you so much, Faye & Peter

    Dear Maria and Siham, Thank you again for being our eyes, ears and hands in Morocco during IMF 2023. I can't thank you enough on behalf of my team and of the senior leadership attending the Citi Reception in Marrakesh for the magical evening. Thank you for perfectly reading the mood, the vibe and the description of everything we wanted to achieve and translating them into the most beautiful details of precise execution and delivery. Our hosts were happy and most importantly our clients and guests were happy. It was a pleasure working with you and your team. All the best, Rachel

    Siham and Maria are the most professional, fabulous, detail-oriented, and talented party planners in Marrakech. Planning a destination wedding from Miami was initially very scary, but Siham was always available to talk , answer questions, and give reassurance. Siham answered every text almost immediately even at odd hours (I’m not sure when she sleeps!) and continuous calls and texts to the extent where my husband was joking that she’s my new best friend. My wedding events could not have been more magical, Party Maroc created an unforgettable experience not only for my husband and I, but for every guest. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would.

    Who could of known planning a wedding in Morocco from the USA could of gone so smoothly. Our wedding day was perfect and this is all thanks to Maria and her wonderful team at Party Marco. A huge thank you to our planners who made this day possible. We had an idea of what we wanted as a venue and they were able to find the perfect one for us and secure it. They were available whenever we needed them day and night and took care of everything so it was worry free for us. Not only did they help plan the gorgeous ceremony and dinner, but they also helped coordinate our entire week long stay in Morocco. We even had a last minute request that was insane and they came through. It was stress free and such a perfect day because of these amazing ladies. Morocco was a pleasure to visit and we will always have such special memories of this day and our trip because of their hard work. It was a pleasure working with them this year and I would definitely recommend them for any weddings, elopements or special events in Morocco. Maria has a passion for what she does and it is shown throughout her great work.

    As background, we are based in Los Angeles and had a four-day, multi-event wedding with 90 guests traveling in from the U.S., Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. We found Maria and Siham over Instagram, and - after considering several other planners - worked with them from start to finish…without ever visiting Marrakech until two days before the first event. 
    If you are thinking about working with Maria and Siham, you should hire them before they book another client - period. They are, in a word, exceptional. They are totally trustworthy, extremely well connected, communicate well and often, have great taste and instincts, balance providing advice rooted in experience with being responsive to the quirkiest of ideas, and will produce a truly memorable event - no matter how complicated or what challenges come up (like a sudden forecast of rain in late May). 
    Key things about working with Maria and Siham:
    They really know Marrakech: We had never been, did not visit during the planning process, and relied on them for suggestions about riads, venues, caterers, entertainment ideas, vendors…literally everything. Everything they suggested was spot on and they were even able to find someone to tent a lawn two days before the event due to potential rain. And they are great at adapting suggestions to your guidance e.g. we ended up with six riads tailored to the different preferences and price points of our diverse group of friends.
    Focused on providing options, sharing advice when asked, and will always defer to you: Some planners are too directive while others don’t help you decide anything. Maria and Siham are exceptional at laying out options based on your guidance, offering their views when asked, and then deferring to your decision. They have executed a lot of events so their advice is rooted in experience and you should probably take it but, whatever you decide, they will support you totally.
    Great communication and end-to-end project management: Nobody really understands everything that goes into an event especially a wedding before they start planning one. Maria and Siham are terrific at explaining the process, and walking you through the various decisions that have to be made and when. One of us is a project manager for a living, and Maria and Siham are on another level. Behind everything you see, they are tracking a ton of other details and execution is seamless (see below). You always feel like you’re their only client and left wondering how they manage to deliver this level of service simultaneously to multiple clients.
    Execution is seamless; they add capacity and relieve stress: A lot of people kept asking us how stressful the wedding planning was, especially the closer we got to the event. And then during/after the event, people asked us how difficult it must have been to pull off. Honestly, Maria and Siham’s execution let us enjoy the event versus worrying about it. That alone was worth their fee.
    We are happy to talk with anyone who would like to learn more about working with Maria and Siham. They know how to reach us and can put you in touch. Good luck!

    Very friendly and helpful company to work with in Marrakech. Quick responses as well. Thank you!!

    My husband and I are both based on the USA but we wanted to have our wedding in Marrakech. We just had our wedding last month and we enlisted the help of La Perle Events who worked closely with Party Maroc. When I say it was the best decision we’ve made, I really mean it. We planned for a wedding weekend with activities including a Moroccan and Henna night on the first day, the ceremony and reception on the second, and a casual farewell brunch on the third. Every event went by so smoothly without any problems, and it’s all thanks to Siham, Maria, and their team. It was such a pleasure working with them during the year building up the our wedding weekend. They are the most thoughtful, meticulous, organized, kind, and knowledgeable planners. They are so easy to talk to, which is so helpful when stressing out about a wedding! They always were willing to listen and were very cognizant of all of our wants and needs for our wedding. They are also so skilled with their planning and we’re always willing to share their knowledge. They thought about things that I didn’t even know were things to think about. They got to know us pretty well through the planning process and were able to help us find the perfect vendors for us. They do a great job communicating with all the vendors and always sent us photos during all the updates. Although we did not get a chance to see our wedding venue when we signed for it, they went to see the venue for us and I trusted their opinion completely. They have amazing vision and a great eye for decor. During the days of our wedding, I did not have to worry about anything, which was such a relief. Our wedding weekend was so spectacular and magical, and all our expectations were blown out of the water! All of our friends and family, some of whom have been to plenty Moroccan weddings, said our wedding was one-of-a-kind and the most amazing they’ve seen, and it’s all thanks to Siham and Maria. I’m so glad we met them, and they are our dear friends for life.

    I wasn’t sure how planning a wedding all the way from London will go but once we started working with Maria, we knew we were in safe hands. We had the wedding of our dreams in Marrakesh, many thanks to Maria. Everything went smoothly from the day our guest arrived to the day they departed. I am happy to have stumbled upon Party Maroc on Instagram and will recommend them over and over again! Thank you so much Maria and the party Maroc team!

    Maria is the perfect wedding planner. If you're reading this review trying to decide whether to select her and Party Maroc for your next event, it's an absolute no-brainer -- pick Maria.My husband and I hosted a 3-day, 60-person wedding in Marrakech. We received endless compliments from our guests, stayed within budget, had the most stress-free experience -- and most importantly had an absolute blast.When we were first searching for a planner, Maria stuck out immediately as knowledgeable, friendly, and down-to-earth. While others tried to push us into one direction or the other (or spent the entire first call bragging about their reputation), Maria took the time to get to know us and build a deliberate plan of action.Maria enabled all of this by working tirelessly throughout. She always anticipated our needs, planned for every eventuality, and pivoted quickly when things didn't go according to plan (thank you, COVID!). Quite frankly, it was hard to believe she had other clients she was working with at the same time, because of the attention she made sure we received at all times.Maria also has impeccable taste and somehow managed to make our events over-the-top glamorous, without being cheesy or kitsch.On our first trip to Marrakech, Maria ensured that everything went perfectly and we not only got our pre-wedding work done, but had so much fun doing it.Maria has excellent contacts in various vendor circles, and gave us tons of good options for décor, DJ, desert camps, flowers, food, photographers, and more. And she never forced us into any decisions with vendors, staying perfectly neutral throughout.My favorite part was how little guidance we had to offer her, aside from explaining our tastes and preferences. She took that and ran with it, and even we were surprised by how perfect each night turned out and we got to focus on having fun and taking care of our guests. And pretend to be modest while being showered with compliments about the event.We count Maria as a friend and are just sliiightly jealous of any other couple that gets to work with her.

    Maria went above and beyond to create just the most amazing day for us. From the first zoom meeting to instant communication over WhatsApp and of course, the day itself, Maria made sure that we got exactly the wedding of our dreams. She added extra detail that we didn’t know we would love, fought to get us great deals and even went out of her way to help us with our pre event, despite this not being her job. She was relaxed, friendly and professional. Many of the vendors she worked with were so at ease with her that there was little instruction needed as they all knew the best places and ways to get things done. I honestly couldn’t recommend Party Maroc enough. Thank you Maria, it has honestly been a dream come true.

    Maria is the most amazing event planner I’ve ever met in my life! We did an event coming in from abroad and she made us feel very comfortable and always in touch with updates on our events. All the locations she chose for our events were A+ quality with the best service and all of the best entertainment. Her team was also amazing they were always with us taking care of all of the background work to make sure the events were going smoothly. I can’t wait to have another event in Morocco and work with Maria, she has become a part of our family and helped something we only as a vision come to life! ❤️

    As an hotelier, an event planner and a graduate from Hotel School of Lausanne I have to tell Maria and your team, you are the best event planner team I have ever worked and even if we were so far away and during the pandemic crisis. Bravo and a Big THANK YOU for your very hard work !!!

    Maria is a phenomenal wedding planner and human being. Maria single handedly made our 3-day wedding extravaganza in Marrakesh in May 2022 an immense success. We are based in the US and Maria made planning a destination wedding so easy. Maria is an excellent communicator, staying in constant communication with us by text and phone. She is very responsive and attentive to your needs. Maria is very organized and able to keep you on track and within your goals. Maria is honest and trustworthy and serves as your advocate in selecting and negotiating with third parties. Maria also has great decor style, taste and instincts. We were so lucky to have Maria as our trusted friend in our wedding planning journey. Maria, thank you so much for making our wedding day so special!We wholeheartedly recommend using Maria as your wedding planner if you are doing a wedding in Marrakesh!Love, Nealofar & Michael

    Maria at Party Maroc recently organized a spectacular birthday party for me in the desert at Roches Noires. The planning process was expertly conducted and every detail was perfect on the day. My guests from the UK, France, Belgium and the USA were blown away. Very highly recommended.

    Amazing customer service. Flying out to Marrakech for my birthday with a group of girls and wanted a party planner. I had sent numerous emails n none has replied except Party Maroc. They immediately came up with ideas for my party...ie... venue, food..entertainment and got the ball rolling. I am super excited to use their services and will post another review with photos after my event.

She did an amazing job and organised the most extraordinary event we have ever experienced as a company. Four days of high-class accommodation and events with stunning decorations and entertainment. We couldn’t be more grateful for this amazing experience, which we will definitely never forget. THANK YOU FOR YOUR OUTSTANDING WORK!

    I have been in touch with Party Maroc ( Maria ) from the beginning of our Wedding planning in Marrakech.(2017). I don’t have even words to describe how professional and helpful Maria was . I can’t believe, it's already over, after a hundreds of e-mails exchanged and WhatsApp chatting .From the beginning and from the first brief about our wedding, Party Maroc knew what kind of wedding we have in mind and what we are dreaming of. From choosing wedding venues , decoration , to different suppliers, Maria knew exactly what we are searching for and was all the time in our side and giving as advices.Marrakech is full of beautiful wedding venues , but Party Maroc knows the best and hidden gems 😉. Planning a wedding in Morocco , it s not easy and you definitely need a professional in town, who to rely and trust on.... I would like to describe partyMaroc in 3 words : - Trustful - Professional - AvailableOn behalf of our parents and all our guests that came from all over the world : France , Finland , Canada , UK, Cameroun , Casablanca , Germany...We thank you so much for all what you have done to make our wedding day so special and unique . 🤩🤩. It was a long journey , but all worth it 😍🙏🏽🙌🏽 With love , Siham & Kevin #s💙k2019

    Went to a 3 day wedding organised by these people last month.... it was so well done... fire eaters, Berber dancers, wonderful staff. I'm tempted to take off a star as it took me a week to come to terms with being back in England after the buzz and friendship out there. Maria pointed out a fantastic salon where I had a great hair cut as well!!
