Although I couldn’t see her face through the phone, I was 100% certain that she was smiling. Smiling wide while speaking about her wedding. After a few days we met over coffee to discuss more details and I was just mesmerized by her gracefulness. With gorgeous white teeth, beautiful skin, and deep-deep-deeeep-sparkly eyes, Shaikha can sure win a beauty pageant if she ever runs for it. This smart, independent, soft-spoken girl can steal any heart.
After she wore her custom-made wedding gown, I told her – “Shaikha, I meet, see, and photograph brides almost every weekend. If I can’t take my eyes off of you, I don’t know what Farid will do.” She laughed! When the ever so charming Farid entered the room and saw Shaikha as a bride, he stood absolutely speechless for a good 1.5 minute. Then I proudly said “I tolddddddddd youuuuuu….” She laughed again!
Following are just a few glimpses of Shaikha & Farid’s wedding which took place at Sharjah Ladies Club. From wedding stage (kosha) to jewelry, each detail speaks high of Shaikha’s elegant choice.
I felt honored and great pleasure to photograph such a beautiful couple who is extremely close to my heart and brought life to the photos with their remarkable love & laughter. I pray that Shaikha keeps mesmerizing Farid and leave him more and more in love with her everyday, ameen.
