Destination Wedding Dubai – Beth & James

When Beth and James contacted me to photograph their destination wedding in Dubai I was over the moon. It was a beautiful intimate celebration with family and friends, which flown all the way from the UK. A lovely celebration by the beach, with tones of blush and peach and blue skies, and the venue chosen was the beautiful Waldorf Astoria- Palm Jumeirah.  Wishing you both a marriage of love and happiness.


Desert love all the way from Japan

Arisa san contacted me back in 2016 saying she was moving from Japan to Dubai for a couple of years, and she was writing a bucket list. I couldn’t be happier when she said having a photoshoot in the desert with me was part of her list. Two years later we went to the desert and had a lovely shoot, the they before they left back to Japan. Wishing you both all the happiness and I hope I can see you one day in Japan (my favourite country!). Arigato gosai masu 🙂


Wedding L&S Saadiyat Island

I am thrilled to be sharing this gorgeous wedding. The couple I have no words to describe how adorable and in love they were, with the cherry on the top when their two babies(doggies), came and stole the scene.

The wedding took place at Park Hyatt, Saadiyat Island – Abu Dhabi UAE. The planner Nancy from Lavender Blue took care of all the details and made a beautiful yet simple decor with the cutest blush colour palette. The flowers from Magna Flora were so, so beautiful!I think it is the prettiest wedding bouquet I have ever photographed. A special mention to SG letter  that made beautiful bespoke name cards and for The Party with their beautiful table numbers. I cant wish enough happiness to you both Linda & Steven, and a beautiful future together.

Flatlays for My Dubai Wedding event

Forever February – A beautiful Valentine’s Day inspired shoot.

February is the month to Celebrate love! It is Valentine’s day ( and the month I got married!).

I got together with some creative minds in Dubai and a beautiful Valentines day shoot came to live.

As always, my love for vintage can be seen in this photo shoot, where I used many of my props and accessories, including the lemonade stand that became a Love booth.

It was a pleasure and so much fun working with the amazing Hair and Makeup artist Monica, that always makes magic.

Blossom Tree flower exceeded on this shoot with the mots gorgeous red flowers and exotic bouquet.

Cups N Cakes made the cutest cookies and cupcakes, and a beautiful Love cake.

Beautiful and sweet model Natalia, was wearing a Helen Miller dress from our darling Vanila Studio.
