As we wrapped up the photoshoot, he was about to leave the bridal suite.
“We’ll see you in the ballroom Ibrahim!” I said to him. He smiled and said “inshAllah.”
Right before exiting the room, he turned around, smiled at her and said “Bistagh-lich!”
She smiled and lowered her wa-wa-woom eyelashes with shyness.
I couldn’t resist and asked her what he said.
“I’ll miss you!” she translated.
Of course the room full of girls gasped and let out a long unanimous ‘awwwww….’ and I thought to myself, this had to be today’s moment that needs to be documented, for ever! ❤
Bashayer & Ibrahim’s beautiful celebrations were held at Roda Al Bustan Rotana, Dubai. The ballroom and stage/kosha decoration was done by Dream Wedding Services.
Bashayer wore a stunning bridal gown designed by Michael Cinco, heels from Jimmy Choo, and carried a bouquet from Moz Flowers. The beautiful perfume table was from Touch of Oud. My personal favorite was the gorgeous juice glass from Wardjoory Arrangement
Dearest Bashayer & Ibrahim,
You two! ❤ Absolutely melted my heart! Thank you for having me on your wedding day, trusting me to document your memories, and for the opportunity of witnessing so much love and care. I pray that the Almighty showers you both with his thoughtfulness, care, love, and mercy. May you both always stay in front of each others’ eyes & have tons of adorable ‘awwww….’ moments, ameen.
It was a laughing riot.
From the moment they were stood next to each other in front of the camera, they continued to laugh, together. It was uncontrollable. Adorably delightful. Without a dull moment in between them. From sharing inside-jokes, holding hands, small pecks of kisses on the cheeks, to gazing into each other’s eyes, they seem to be the epitome of love.
Ayesha & Mohamed = Cuteness Overloaded!
Ayesha & Mohamed’s wedding was celebrated at InterContinental Dubai Festival City. The ballroom as well as stage/kosha was decorated by the super talented team of Dream Wedding Services. Ayesha wore a beautiful Esposa bridal dress and carried a bouquet from Dantel Flowers.

I pray to the Almighty that you both continue to fulfill each other’s lives with love, unlimited fun & laughter. Always & Forever, ameen.
Tonssssss of love,
He made her laugh with all her heart.
She showed him what true love meant.
Supporting each other through thicks and thins of life, they completed each other.
For years to come, they will become stronger together.
Mariam & Ahmed’s wedding was celebrated at Hyatt Regency, Dubai. The ballroom decorations were done by Elite Events. Mariam was beautified by the super talented Layaly, wore a customized bridal gown, Dior heels, and carried a bouquet from Exotica.
Dear Mariam & Ahmed,
Thank you for being the funniest couple ever. Your jokes, laughs, and hidden love in all of that you do will always put a smile on my face. Take care of each other as you do. I pray to the Almighty that you both love and cherish each moment of your lives to the extreme, ameen.
It was like a tsunami of people.
Jumping up the stage as well as each other to grab the money which was being thrown in the air. It’s always fun to watch (well, almost always). At traditional local Emirati weddings, when the men enter the ballroom towards the end of the wedding night, both sides of the families throw money in the air to show their happiness. The kids, their maids, nannies, and waitresses jump to grab that money.
I’ve seen it happening at almost all the weddings. Except, I saw something remarkable happen at their wedding. As the bride was covering her head and most of her face from the men, she couldn’t see the tsunami of people jumping towards her to grab the money. He stood in front of her to save her from being pushed or falling in the chaos.
I watched his confidence as well as prompt reaction and smiled. He stood there firmly like a wall protecting his breathtaking wife with a heart of gold. I had a strong gut-feeling that she must be smiling from under her veil. Knowing that he was there to protect her and be present with her through thicks & thins of life.
Lovely wedding of Zainab & Saeed was celebrated at Jumeirah Mina A’Salam. The ballroom was decorated by Sayedati Weddings. Zainab wore a stunning gown by The Gloss House from Abu Dhabi, Manolo Blahnik shoes, and carried a Fiore Design bouquet.
& they lived happily ever after….
Dearest Zainab & Saeed,
Your wedding day was as beautiful as you both are. Thank you for your trust and friendship. I have no doubt that you two will protect each other in all walks of life and be each others’ support. May you both make each other feel strong and always give each the sense of protection that I witnessed on your wedding day. I pray that the Almighty keeps you both blessed with happiness, success, health, and endless love, ameen.
I was impressed by her attention to details.
More than that, I admired her style and swag. Every single thing she chose for her henna and wedding was a reflection of her unique flair. To top it all, her witty & fun personality made the day even more glorious.
Hind & Yousef’s henna party was celebrated at Al Mizhar Wedding Hall in Dubai. The ballroom was turned beautifully into a traditional Arabic night themed party with tons of details by Dream Wedding Services. Hind wore a stunning red dress customized from Bahrain paired with SJP‘s shoes. I absolutely loved the lantern she carried instead of a traditional bouquet.
Dear Hind & Yousef,
Thank you for your trust in me and my work. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you, your families and friends at your super fun henna party. I can’t wait to share your grand wedding blog with the world. May Allah keep you both happy, surrounded by love, laughter, and makes your lives as colorful and fun as your henna party was.
