Emma Hussain: Boho Moroccan Wedding

The Wedding of Emma and Sammear

Storyteller: Emma Hussain, UK


What was the best moment of your wedding day?

Relaxing on the rooftop after the ceremony surrounded by our friends and family with cocktails and Moroccan tea watching the sun set over the Atlas Mountains... it was a real “we did it” moment!


What is your favourite image from your wedding and why?

I love the picture of my dad walking me down the aisle (above), it was very important to me as we have a fantastic relationship and he is the one that actually performed the ceremony and got us married which made it extra special for us.


What is your favorite memory behind a single shot in the book?

I love the shot at the end of the book of my husband's grandmother (above). She doesn’t speak a word of English and didn’t understand any of the ceremony or speeches but just to have her sat there at the party smiling and enjoying herself meant everything. Me and her have never been able to speak to each other but she is someone very important to me and I love her a lot.


What do your wedding photos mean to you?

The photos mean everything to me. A lot of girls dream of their perfect wedding and although I never expected as a girl I’d have planned a boho Moroccan wedding it was absolute perfection and I can’t wait to treasure this album and photos forever.


What bit of advice would you give to someone creating their own wedding memento?

Do your research on how to lay the album out. Make separate folders on your desktop for key moments in the ceremony and narrow your photos down by the moment. This saved me a lot of time and meant the book flowed well and all elements of the day were captured. Be sure to also watch the video tutorials on the album creator, knowing you could flip the layouts for example and how to organize a spread made the whole thing really easy and surprisingly enjoyable!


Tell the story of your perfect day.
