Wedding Majid & Alina – The Palace Downtown Dubai

A wedding that looked like a Fairytale. That is how I see Majid & Alina`s special day.

Everything was so beautiful and perfect. This intimate wedding took place at a hidden gem in Dubai, The Palace Downtown Dubai. Burj Khalifa and Dubai mall fountains water show  made the perfect background.  The set up was done by the talented team of The Purple chair. A very elegant decor with color scheme of white and gold. Alina looked like a real Disney princess, with her beautiful white dress and long veil, and classy Louboutin shoes.

Wishing this lovely couple all the happiness on the beginning of their happily ever after <3


Mehndi Party – Keagan & Anam

I love living in Dubai as I have the opportunity to photograph so many different cultures and traditions.

This event was a very special one. The first day of a 3 days celebration. Keagan is South African and Anam has Pakistani/English background, so they had a Mehndi party to start. A very fun, colorful and energetic night. Family and friends gathered at their family home in Dubai, and danced throughout the night. The outfits used were so beautiful and added colour to the cute set up and added smiles to everyone’s faces.

 


Gothic Romance – FIVE Hotel Palm Jumeirah

When a new hotel opens in Dubai, everyo0ne in the wedding industry wants to have a chance to phootgraph it!

I was lucky enough, together with some amazing vendors from Dubai, to have a beautiful shoot inside the amazing FIVE hotel at The Palm Jumeirah.

The theme chosen was “Gothic Romance” – all the love that a wedding set up needs, contrasting with some deep colours.

For the Love of Music

Once again my love for vintage, pretty in pink and flowers inspired me for a dreamy soft shoot.

Myself and my very talented friend Monica got our brains together and produced a styled shoot called ” For the Love of Music”.

I used many of my antiques props and my background in styling to produce this shoot. Together with many of my favourite wedding vendors in Dubai.

A series of love stories that is being publish on Joelle’s blog, from My Lovely Wedding.

I feel so happy to be able to express my art and my emotions through photos, and I hope you enjoy seeing the images, as much as I enjoyed creating them and photographing.

Alice in Wonderland – Wedding styled shoot

I love everything that is mystical, sweet, pretty and dreamy.

And since I was a kid, I always loved all the Disney films and stories. After 30 years, it seems that nothing have changed! My favourite colours are still pink and baby blue, and I still imagine myself as a Princess sometimes!

So, together with many talented vendors in Dubai, a magical shoot was put together! I could not be happier with the result. And I am pretty sure many grown up girls like me, would love to have a wedding day like this!

Enjoy the images and dream on…

My love for vintage, pretty things and pink just keeps growing everyday.

I have a burgeoning collection of antique props and I am so happy to have used my darling typewriter that I bought from an auction in Ireland <3

Wedding Hassan & Zainab – Desert Palm

What a pleasure to photograph Hassan & Zainab`s wedding. A lovely couple, that choose to do a local Emirati wedding with a twist. A gorgeous outdoor wedding that took place at the beautiful Desert Palm hotel, in Dubai. The planning was done by the amazing team of The Purple Chair, that created a rustic chic decoration, with beautiful colours. The flowers were abundant and many wooden elements were used. The cherry on the top: the kosha! One of the prettiest I have ever seen. Wishing this amazing couple a future live together,as pretty as they are <3

 


Wedding in Muscat – M & T

At the beginning of the year, I had an honor to photograph a lovely couple, in one of the prettiest locations I have been.              The wedding took place in Muscat, Oman. So I flown from Dubai to join my colleague Tara Atkinson to shoot this dream wedding.The hotel that the bride and groom choose is the beautiful and traditional Al Bustan Ritz Carlton. The colours were soft and the bouquet was amazing, matching the bride`s beautiful off white dress.Wishing the lovely couple Manar and Tony, a wedding as perfect and enchanting as their wedding day.

 

 

 


Tea Party at Sponthiphoria

As you can imagine by my website, I love everything that is pink, sweet & vintage.

So I was over the moon to get to photograph this cute Afternoon Tea session, in one of my favourite places in Dubai – Spontiphoria Boutique & Cafe.

An afternoon tea with the girls is always a good idea! Specially when you get pampered first, and have your hair done! After you can chitchat and enjoy all the details. Beautiful cakes, delicate wooden toppers and cute table decoration.  All complimented by vintage books, fresh flowers and the most beautiful mix of crockery!

Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed spending an afternoon in this hidden gem of Dubai <3
