The bridal suite’s bell rung followed by a man screaming something in Arabic outside the room as I photographed the beautiful bride’s formals. I looked at my assistant with shock as to who it might be. Within split of a second, the bride said something back in Arabic out loud and our heads turned back to the bride in shock. Both of them started laughing.
In that moment, I knew that the chemistry & understanding they shared can’t be stopped by closed door. Being on the opposite sides of anything didn’t matter. They were one. Meant to be together….
Mariam is the girl who believe in details. Her wedding was full of details which Mariam spent months of planning and collecting from several countries. With gorgeous display for her jewelry to hand-writing a personal message in Arabic on those displays, she made sure her love for Matar is expressed with its full intensity.
Mariam & Matar’s wedding was celebrated at Beach Rotana Hotel, Abu Dhabi and was decorated by Dream Wedding Services. Mariam was beautified by the very talented Asya Shah. Mariam looked stunning in her custom made gown from KSA, Chanel shoes, and her beautiful bouquet/maska from Fiore Design provided a gorgeous pop of colors in the photos.
Dear Mariam & Matar,
Shukran (thank you!). I know these are two very simple and overly used words but I said it in Arabic because you said words are more powerful when said in Arabic. You two are perfect – both individually & together. I had super much fun meeting both of you behind my camera, sharing the joys with your family, and it was my honor to document your wedding. May you keep sharing hand-written notes, out-loud-yet-secret-jokes, and eternal love.
