Has your motivation taken a break, and has your creativity lost its spark? Journey with us on an incredible retreat to Morocco to find out how to re-ignite your passion!
With so many wonderful countries on this planet, none have fascinated us as much as Morocco has. Vast desert landscapes, lime-green hills, unique natural scenery and exotic spices greet us and stretch for as far as the eye can see. This serves as the perfect scene for any wedding story, and produces the most diverse and vivid pictures. Morocco was not picked by chance for this journey.
We begin in Marrakech, a city dating from the year 1070 A.D. with fabulous buildings and romantic details, and make our way to the Sahara and back. The changing scenery of natural spectacles, coupled with the unique art of this country, is indescribable and stimulates imagination like no other place on earth. The people of Morocco are warm and friendly, their hospitality warms the heart and their religious influences add to the overall picture of this colourful world, brimming with the joys of life and nature.
Come and be a part of our Hochzeitswahn hammock retreat to experience an exciting and diverse program, where photo challenges and wedding editorial styled shoots await you, and finding your Inner Om plays a fundamental part in getting those creative juices flowing. Our workshops will challenge and stimulate your creativity and bring back your motivation, in between meditation and contemplative hours and culinary delights. The things you learn on this journey are the keys to growing, after all it’s not the result at the end of the journey that matters, it’s what you have done to get there that does.
