Henna Party, Sharjah – Hind & Khaled

With a strikingly composed & caring personality, Hind was a bride who was sure of what she wanted. From her dressing style, putting the details together for her parties, to designing her own kosha (stage) & engagement/milcha party & wedding dresses, Hind is a creative mind whom I took absolute pleasure in photographing.

Khaled, the guy who looked tough when he walked into the room, but as soon as he started talking, the entire night was full of jokes, hilarious punch-lines, and some more jokes. He was successful in making his lovely bride laugh without a single dull moment.

Their amazing henna party was held at Hind’s parents’ villa in Sharjah. Hind designed the gorgeous stage herself that looked like a traditional Arab gold head-piece for the bride. The decorations were brought to life with her family’s endless hard-work and love. I must add about the kazillion types of party-favors put together according to the theme that the guests enjoyed. From her beautiful gold jewelry to impressive dress, and Prada shoes, Hind’s night was nothing short of perfection!

Dearest Hind & Khaled,

Thank you for everything! I feel so much joy to call both of you my friends.  My heart was fulfilled to see your chemistry and love through my camera. Hind, you are adorable. I love your smile, sparking personality, and care that you show to your loved ones. I pray that every time you look at the spaces on your fingers, you always find Khaled’s fingers locked with yours. Reminding you of his immense love. Always….

Wedding in Le Meridien Hotel, Dubai – Yousef & Khadija

He turned around and his bisht (Arab’s traditional robe) did a full swing.
It looked like a cape. Then he fixed his ghatra (white head piece for men) and flashed a smile at his princess. Everyone knew the new Arab super-hero was there to take his princess with him. To make the fairytale story more authentic, I gave him a name –  ‘The Ghatra Man’.

From the time Khadija sat on the super talented makeup artist Zareen‘s makeup chair, I remember nothing but laughing. It was a laughing riot. Without a single dull moment. Khadija’s much-anticipated-wedding was a dream come true. Zareen’s magic made her look even more stunning. Everyone who looked at Khadija couldn’t take their eyes off of her (mashaAllah times a billion).

People gasped for breath when Khadija made an entrance wearing her breathtaking wedding gown by Michael Cinco and holding her gorgeous bouquet by Fiore Design.  With tons of details such as bird-cages, park benches, flowers, water-fountains – my favorite – cushions that looked like wood-logs, The Great Ballroom in Le Meridien Hotel was spectacularly decorated and turned into a magical garden by Al Mahad Events.

Here is a quick video trailer with decoration of their beautiful Dubai wedding.

Mr. & Mrs. GhatraMan

I can’t express how happy and emotionally invested I was throughout your wedding celebrations. Yousef, I’m sure you are super happy to have your princess always by your side. I can see the happiness through your SnapChats. Khadija, your family is the mosttttttt welcoming one I have ever met. From discussing the packages over amazing karak-chaye at your house to inviting me for food-tasting at the hotel way before your wedding, it was always a party hanging out with them. You are an incredible friend+sister who finds & spread the joy in life’s simplest moments. Always. I’m sure you’ll make Yousef’s life full of love, care, and laughter with your awkward awesome dance-moves :D

Love you to the Pluto and back,
~ Rima

Henna Party in Barsha, Dubai – Yousef & Khadija

As a photographer, I absolutely loOoOoOove themed parties.
Especially when the party is thoughtfully put together with enormous amount of details and colors. I jumped with joy when Khadija told me that she was to have an Indian themed henna party. I knew something extravagant was in store because Khadija won’t settle for less.

When I entered the venue, my jaw dropped, eyes sparkled, and my heart did a happy dance. From the entrance with little decorated elephant hanging, to kosha/stage, to the tables setup with traditional Indian pots with Gota handwork and real jasmine flowers, everything represented perfection. I must give all the credit to the kosha decorator Al Mahad Events for their extra ordinary attention to details. They stuck to the theme and put together every single detail with elegance and style.

After their engagement party, I was honored to photograph the gorgeous Indian themed henna party of my darling bride+groom+friends > Khadija & Yousef. Their party was nothing short of awesomeness with tons of details, fun, hugs, and immense love.

Wedding in Hyatt Regency, Dubai – Salem & Shahira

He sat through the entire bridal session calmly and watched her.
As she turned around in her gorgeous dress and laughed at a silly joke, he smiled.
The way he was smiling, the way he watched her, it showed that he knew what his jaw-dropping life-partner was thinking. He was ready to gather up the rainbows for her. To hold her hand and chase her fears away. He was ready to take care of their love. Ready to nurture it more. Honor it. Strengthen it.

Shahira & Salem make a perfect couple. With a gorgeous bridal gown and a very unique veil from Riman Fashion, off white Manolo Blahnik shoes, Natasha‘s on-point hair and makeup – the very pretty Shahira looked beathtaking. I was sure Salem’s heart skipped a beat during their first-look because after that, he just couldn’t take his eyes off of her.

Shahira & Salem’s beautiful wedding was celebrated by their family and friends at Hyatt Regency, Dubai.  The kosha/stage was made by Wish Event. Fiore Design made a gorgeous bouquet for Shahira which I used as background for her *bling* aka diamond jewelry!

As the years pass, may you find more and more profound reasons to love each other. May you both dream and help each other achieve those dreams.  May you touch each other’s hearts in a special way and make each other look to tomorrows expectingly, thrilled for the good things to come.

Love,

Wedding in JW Marriott Marquis, Dubai – Ahmad & Ebtesam

As I gave directions to them, I watched how adorably he picked up a loose piece of her hair and carefully put it behind her ear. She smiled and looked at him with gleaming eyes. No words were spoken yet – in that moment –  the promise of taking care of each other for a lifetime was made.

It amazes me that the more weddings I document, the more I love & cherish my work. The couples play a major role in making me realize, treasure, and fall deeper in love with what I do. Through my camera’s small viewfinder, I watch their big-grand-immense-love.

Ebtesam & Ahmad are one of those lovely couples I had the pleasure of documenting on their big day. Their gorgeous wedding was held at JW Marriott Marquis Hotel in Business Bay, Dubai. Eventra Events did a spectacular job with the stage/kosha decoration. The well thought centerpieces were made with real Jasmine flowers that made the entire ballroom smell of alluring fragrance.

Dear Ebtesam & Ahmad,

Thank you for letting me photograph the joys of your first day as husband&wife. Both of you are adorable together. I pray that you always see your reflections into each other’s soul & fulfill the promise of loving and taking care of each other.  May you both always walk hand in hand & discover your magical realm – together, ameen!

Wedding in Atlantis the Palm, Dubai – Nikki & David

Soulmates. Instead of their names, that’s how they both should be referred to as: soulmates. Their union was nothing but love. Inspiring True Love. Full of devotion & passion. For which the greatest sacrifices may seem as sweetest delights.

Nikki contacted me few months ago from UK and expressed that she was having a wedding in UK but the couple wanted to have their blessing done in Dubai as they both love the city and its culture. Sharing her love for Dubai, of course I had to say yes! Upon meeting her, I realized that she’s even more lovely in person and she made an absolutely stunning bride. Her prince charming, David, was in awe by her beauty. These love-birds were surrounded by their close friends who witnessed them make vows of eternal love.

Nikki & David chose to have a destination wedding and celebrated their union, fiery and as pure as they themselves are, at Atlantis The Palm, Dubai.

Wedding in Al Boom Tourist Village, Dubai – Marwa & Jassim

It felt like their thought process was aligned.
They were reading each other’s mind without uttering a single word. They knew what the other one wanted without asking. There were times they were naughty and annoyed each other but it always ended with laughter and embracing each other. With love.

Marwa, the quite yet friendly bride had exquisite eyes & gorgeous features. She had the personality anyone can easily talk to. No wonder she had Jassim head-over-heels for her. As much pleasure as it was capturing Marwa’s gorgeous face, Jassim – the tall handsome groom – was truly natural in front of the camera.

Their beautiful wedding took place at Latifa Ballroom in Al Boom Tourist Village, Dubai. As fun & colorful their henna party was, Marwa & Jassim had an elegant wedding with all things pretty. A printed-circle dance floor was creatively made a step below the actual stage so the bride’s friends can cheer and dance without blocking her view of the ballroom. I particularly liked their initials [MJ] on the details.

Dear MJ,

Thank you! It was an honor to document your big day. Your love inspires me. The day was perfect in every sense and I couldn’t be more happier to be a part of it. I’m sure great things are in store for both of you. May you always find each other by your side & realize how lucky you both are. May you never take each other for granted & conquer the world – together!
