Park Hyatt Wedding Showcase

Afternoon my lovelies, I hope you're all having a wonderful Monday. I just got home from a rather busy morning. I had two meetings on The Palm, which isn't a bad place to start the day. I'm now back in Satwa and enjoying the quiet space of my new home office. I'll post some pictures on the blog soon.... once I've decorated and got my giant blackboard calender on the wall. (Thanks to E-walls and their creative talents) So basically... if you're a lovely bride-to-be and haven't yet confirmed all the details for your big day then I suggest you pop by to say hello to me and a bunch of fabulous vendors at the Park Hyatt Wedding Showcase on Saturday 7th February.

A halloween tipi wedding in Dubai…

A halloween styled Tipi wedding in Dubai. Photography by JVR. Planned by Fabulous Day Weddings & Events.

There is so much detail in today's gorgeous wedding. A tipi, pumpkins (because it was on Halloween… obviously), flowers, cool signage and of course… kilts! I have lots of Scottish friends so I can really appreciate a good kilt. My friend and photographer; Liz at JVR loved every minute of this perfectly styled wedding at The Address Montgomerie. Organised by the lovely Masha at Fabulous Day Weddings and Events there is not a detail that went missed. I'm unsure if the tipi is my favourite part, or the beautiful and rather festive pumpkins. Can it be both?? A few words from the photographer herself... This wedding was hilarious!!! The crowd was awesome!!! The views from the dance floor were awesome, and it was even better because it was a halloween wedding. Tina looked like a goddess in her lace back wedding dress with a slit that shows off her very looooong legs. I always wanted to photograph a “scottish-kilt-wearing-wedding”  - there is just something about a … [Continue]

Sophia & Mark’s wedding filmed by Hitched in Dubai.

OK people... be prepared to be blown away. This video, created by “Hitched in Dubai”, is one of my all time favorites. I'm also in it, which makes it that much better! I love everything about this wedding, and not only did I get to showcase some of the best vendors in Dubai but they trusted me with the decor. I put forward ideas, and they gave me the all clear to be creative and do what I do best. 'style weddings'. We added personal touches throughout, and because Mark is a DJ we incorporated a record player, and instead of guests signing a guest book, they signed vintage records. It was a very cool touch. Sophia's vision for a blush pink and gold wedding was teamed with mint green and glittery DIY touches. I hand painted oversize mason jars with mint and pink paint and sprayed them with gold glitter. The wood signage was created by “The Joinery.” They also helped me make the floral DIY photo booth. I painted an old wood Ikea table to match.  I used mirrors from Ikea and Lilliam … [Continue]

An intimate rustic wedding in Italy…

http://www.infraordinario.it/  - Gorgeous rustic wedding featured on Dubai's most lovely wedidng blog - My Lovely Wedding.  A summer wedding in Padova.

When this wedding landed in my inbox, I literally got goose bumps. I also found myself pining for an Italian rustic venue that I could one day style. When you discover a venue like Locanda Rosa Rosae you really don't need to add to much decor. It would only ruin it. One should take advantage of the natural beauty of the venue, the character and of course the incredible view. Today's wedding was photographed by the awesome Infraordinario. David and Daniela got married on the 27th July 2014 in Italy and celebrated with 50 guests. The mother of the bride helped decorate the tables with fresh herbs and brown bags potted with flowers. When you scroll down to discover the details you will know exactly why I'm so in love with this rustic Italian wedding. It's so simple and ever so beautiful. (Because I'm obsessed with everything rustic... obviously.)   The bride wore the coolest pair of Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon Heart shoes, which I am now very in love with.

Just because I can I'm starting the week off by introducing you to another fabulous wedding photographer in Dubai.

How to visit “DragonMart” – Shopping for your wedding in Dubai {DIY Bride}

Visiting Dragon Mart - Dubai wedding

Last week I prepared myself for a visit to Dragon Mart. For anyone who doesn't know where or what is DragonMart, then let me explain. In a way one might describe Dragon Mart as a giant Chinese mall. Selling mostly Chinese products, the 1.2 Kilometer-long Dragon Mart is the largest trading centre for Chinese Products outside mainland China. It's also boasts to have over 2,500 parking spaces, which is interesting because I can never find a parking spot… then again on my last two visits I valet parked my car. It's only AED 17. Believe me, it's totally worth it. If you haven't been to this weirdly, and slightly fascinating mall then you should. It's worth a visit, but I suggest you avoid weekends and late afternoons. I always try to schedule my trips in around mid morning. The best thing about DragonMart is the huge variety of items on sale. You can find everything from toys, furniture, lamps, lights, clothes,  stationery and even machinery… if that's something you really need. On my … [Continue]

Blush pink & Gold – A styled shoot by Aghareed {Dubai wedding planners}

Arabic Styled Wedding Shoot - Photography by Pink Pepper

Morning Lovelies, I'm so sorry I didn't post anything yesterday. I had a jam packed day full of meetings and didn't get home until 6pm. I'm moving house next weekend so everything at home is a bit topsy-turvy if you know what I mean. Anyway, before I dash off for my first meeting of the day, followed by a trip to the Capital I thought I'd share part two of Agareed's styled shoot. {If you missed the beach styled shoot you can see it here "A beach styled shoot by Aghared { Dubai wedding planners}" This shoot was styled to showcase one of the most popular wedding themes in the UAE. Blush pink and gold. Gold is a must-have at most Arab weddings, so incorporating this into the shoot was key to bringing this shoot to life. The candy bar table is ever so sweet, and was created by the girls at Aghareed. The glittery table overlays teamed with the pale pink and white roses make this a rather glamorous set up. It's not my style but I can appreciate it all the same. {I like a more rustic … [Continue]
