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
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.
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!
A perfect location,some amazing Dubai vendors. The Wedding Haven’s vision brought to life in this Tropical Bliss … in the Desert styled shoot! Enjoy the beautiful colours, a real couple in love and the soft photos!
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
I styled and photographed this beautiful photo shoot, together with some of my friends and colleagues from Dubai’s wedding industry. Monica www.mhgbeauty.com is responsible for the “plot” of the “Love Letters” shoot and for the amazing hair and make up.

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
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.
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
