Amariya

Moroccans have two inimitable wedding celebrations, the Berber and Arabic style which can be seen in other North African nations.

However, there is a ritual unique to Moroccan Arabic wedding ceremonies where the bride and groom are paraded around the room sitting majestically in an amariya, a large chair.

They are carried by four men and moved from one end of the room to the other where guests and other well-wishers are given the opportunity to bestow on them marital blessings for a happy and beautiful life together as a couple.
