When Rebecca Rees from A Thing Like That asked me to assist her with her first styled shoot I was completely thrilled. For those of you that don’t know Rebecca, she recently moved over to wedding photography after years working at Harpers Bazaar Arabia and, as to be expected, has an incredibly stylish eye as well as a completely natural talent for photography.
The vision was to create a simple, relaxed and elegant set up with a focus on one of the UAE’s newest (and dare I say coolest) catering companies, Ghaf Kitchen who cater from their restored vintage Citroen H van. Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club served as the perfect backdrop to our shoot as a secluded green spot in the heart of busy old Dubai.
Our stunning Bride Sunny was dressed in the most elegant Tony Ward dress from Esposa which seemed to float at exactly all the right moments in the wind (a stylist’s dream) and had the most beautifully detailed neckline. Angelique Turner is one very talented lady and did an incredible job with the hair and make up ~ the effortlessly chic braid she created had me yearning for one of my own. Whilst our Groom Antoine was dressed in a beautifully tailored suit from Mr Porter and was the epitome of a handsome gent.
Our tablescape was small, simple but no less beautiful. I loved the casual ‘picnic’ feel of the furniture from Desert River and the rustic floral set up by Flower Palette. Julie from MyList helped us pick out the most elegant crockery from Tavola and the whole look was finished off with the most magnificent menu sets from Artcadia.
The rustic cake was quite simply a masterpiece from Love Sweet Stuff and Rebecca was a complete dream sourcing pieces from Etsy that would finish off the whole look of the shoot.
As always it was a complete privilege to work with so many new and talented vendors and I hope that you love the results as much as I do….
