It was my first time meeting her because she hired me on the phone. Haneya is a cousin of my past bride who referred her. Her too much calmness was surprising. I asked her if she’s nervous and she said “It’s not hitting me that today is my wedding.” We both smiled and I assured her that was about to change as soon as she’ll get into her wedding dress.
True as it was, Haneya’s smile got wide as she got into her wedding dress and even wider with each delicate piece of jewelry she wore. From behind my camera, I enjoyed watching her intense nervousness turned into streams of happiness. Her grace, gratitude, and love showed in every move – especially when Nabil made his entrance into the bridal suite. I think that’s what love does to people – it gives them power.
Their intimate wedding was hosted at the very tech-savvy Meydan Hotel, Dubai. Surrounded by family & friends, Haneya & Nabil announced their I DOs, shared some custom-made delicious chocolates, and promised to be at each other’s side forever….
Dear Haneya & Nabil,
Thank you so much for your trust and for the opportunity to document your big day. I loved how each of your family member and friends present at your wedding joined in your happiness and celebrated your union cheerfully. May you both always hold hands, give each other strength, bring positive change into each other’s life, and try to be the better half of the other.
