Intimate elegance at Dubai Creek

LITD ~ A Thing Like That Photography_0002

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….

Statement Jewels

LITD ~ Statement Jewels_0000

Statement jewels are often something that brides shy away from but it can turn a modest, elegant and traditional look in to something far more emphatic and memorable and most importantly more ‘you’. If you’re a girl that loves her statement jewels then don’t be afraid to embrace one of your favourite pieces on your wedding day.

The old mantra is so true ~ it’s your day so do it your way.

These brides have all embraced their look and I love each and every one.

Naeem Khan Fall 2015

LITD ~ Naeem Khan_0003

‘Fresh,’ ‘young’ and ‘sexy’ is how Naeem Khan described his versatile fall line-up. His latest collection featured an array of slightly unconventional silhouettes which were aimed to dress the bride over the entire wedding weekend.

From the long classic lace dress to the short cocktail number, each dress had Khan’s exquisite attention to detail when it comes to beading and intricate design.

This is Khan’s most versatile range and I love it. Whilst some of the fringe edged dresses are reminiscent of the 1920′s others with the abundance of lace are much more classical ~ truly something for every bride.

Dubai brides can find Naeem Khan’s designs at Frost Boutique.

Unstructured flowers

LITD ~ Unstructured flowers_0000

Unstructured bouquets are up there with my absolute favourite wedding details. I love the romance that they encapsulate, the haphazard, non conventional beauty, the spontaneous allure and the wild and uncontrollable way that they have been pulled together.

But above all, it is the true reflection of the natural beauty that I love.

If you’re picking out your wedding bouquet, why not try something a little more unstructured…..

Monique Lhuillier Fall 2015

LITD ~ Monique Lhuillier_0003

Today we’re back to the bridal market and Monique Lhuillier’s latest collection which was inspired by the ‘surreal beauty and fantasy of a jewellery box. My gowns were dreamed up as if from a treasure trove of one’s keepsakes and ornate jewellery, where a perfectly poised ballerina balances en pointe pirouetting in delight’. Firstly, I adore that as a pocket of inspiration, I remember all too vividly my treasured ballerina jewellery box.

The collection is as beautiful as we have all come to expect from Lhuillier.

Romantic dresses displayed in an array of subtle shades of lavender, peach, gold, and mint meant that these dresses truly stand out whilst also retaining a timeless feel. Princess and trumpet gowns heavy on tulle and Chantilly lace with intricate detailing ensures that this collection will be as sought after as ever.

Dubai brides can shop for Monique Lhuillier at Esposa.
