Crowne Plaza Wedding – Ali & Hamda

He picked up a piece of lint from her veil.
Their eyes met and smiles spread across their faces. He took her hand into his, brought it close to his face. Her heart skipped a beat, she smiled, and lowered her eyes in approval. He kissed her hands.

The invisible Sufi dervishes started dancing around them. I stood their stunned by the tranquility of their love.  They were lost into each other’s existence, making them forgot that the videographer, my assistant, and I were watching them. It is rare to find couples who are not afraid to show off their love for each other – loud & proud – especially in the midst of a wedding day. And I…..well, I was loving every second of it.

Ali & Hamda got married in Crowne Plaza, Dubai.  Hamda wore a gorgeous dress by Hessa Bourqiaba and Chanel shoes. Their ballroom was decorated by Tahani AlKhaleej. I had such a pleasure photographing these two dangerously-in-love souls and their amazing families. Oh and I met three past clients’ families and friends. I called it a great night!


Dearest Hamdu & Alawi,

I absolutely love for all that you both are, all that you both had been, and alllllllll that you both are yet to be. Thank you for trusting me enough to document your big day, for being yourselves, for being so open and welcoming. Thank you super much for allowing me to watch your love-story unfold in front of my eyes. I pray that the Almighty keeps your hands into each other’s and may you both always be surrounded by invisible dervishes dancing on the songs of love.

With much much much Love,
~ Rima
