You can get married in either country. You are better positioned to researched what is needed in Morocco. For Finland see:

You need
a) visa to get here
b) formal documentation that you're unmarried. It seems you need to go through the full legalization procedure (you get the document, have it confirmed by a notary, have your foreign ministry to confirm that and finally have the local Finnish embassy to confirm the seal of the foreign ministry). Safest to have your fiancee to show the paper or its copy in advance to the local "maistraatti" or wherever you plan to get married to see that they are satisfied with it.

Of course you can get married too in Morocco. For that you can find you yourself the required documentation. Most likely the same as above (but no visa), except reversed. Afterwards you can give the (legalized) marriage certificate to the Finnish embassy for to have registered here as well.
