She was in sajda (prostrate) finishing her prayers when I walked in the bridal suite.
While folding her prayer mat, she looked at me & her extremely talented makeup artist Zareen & admitted that she was very nervous. Zareen & I smiled. I hugged her tight and told her she’ll make a gorgeous bride and that she didn’t need to worry because she hired the best team of Dubai for her big day. She smiled big and said “Oh Rima, I so0o0o needed that hug.” ‘Oh gosh, I adore this girl,’ I thought to myself. “Well, I’m here to give you hugs whenever you need” I offered gladly and all three of us laughed.
I photographed Faisal & Fatma’s engagement party few months ago and have never had a single dull moment every time we met. She’s a shy girl who is very loving, fearful of God, and I must say she has keen eye to details because she’s an impressively talented Urban planner (and a graphic designer because she designed a beautiful invitation card for her wedding). She completely deserves allllllll the love and care Faisal has for her.
I must add, Fatma is one of those brides who really spent time in finding & hiring the best team of professional wedding vendors of Dubai. When I got to know she hired Zareen for the makeup and Jean as a hairstylist, I knew I didn’t need to worry about the retouching because the makeup will be perrrrfect & every piece of hair will be in the right place. Omar‘s imagination and expertise in creating unique kosha (stage) designs need no introduction. A gorgeous bridal gown from Solida Bridal Fashion was cheery on top of the icing. I felt honored to be a part of this wonderful team.
Following are photos from Faisal & Fatma’s stupendous wedding which took place at Multaqua Hall in World Trade Center, Dubai.
Faisal & Fatma, may each day of your married life bloom with warmth of your love. I wish you a long life full of allllllllll the happiness you both deserve, today and always…..
