Yellow & Green

LITD ~ Green and Yellow_0000

I do often think of this colour palette as being associated with a more traditional spring but with Dubai cooling down I suppose this is almost as good as we get for that springtime feel.

Yellow and green gives a simple yet warm feel to your wedding, add in some blush shades and you instantly inject some femininity into the look.

Bright and bold whilst still remaining totally classic this is a great colour palette to choose if you’re looking for something that will stand out from the crowd but remain timeless…..

Old World Elegance

LITD ~ Kina Wicks_0016

I am beyond excited to share this shoot with you all. Kina Wicks and Joy Proctor created a little piece of the Middle East in America and today I have the absolute privilege of bringing it to you.

This shoot centres around one of the most beautiful dresses ever with the most perfect touches of Arabia. I know that many brides from Dubai aspire to bring a touch of their new-found home to their wedding day and for me this shoot represents exactly how to do just that.

The elegance and beauty of this shoot makes me tingle and I hope you love it as much as I do. If you love Kina’s style then you’ll be pleased to know that although she is based in America she is available for destination weddings….

Bold Lips

LITD ~ Strong Lips_0000

I do love a bride with a bright lip. I love the boldness and that kissability x-factor which is brings to a look.

Whether it’s the classic red lip or a more funky shade of coral, the key is to stay true to your usual makeup look and choose a shade that not only suits your bridal look but that also enhances your natural beauty.

Recently I am really loving the deeper shades of crimson and plum for the lipstick wow factor.

Remember to make sure you trial your lipstick shade before the big day (especially if you’re having a makeup artist) and organise for one of your bridesmaids to be in charge of looking after it so that you can easily reapply throughout the day.

Gilded Love

LITD ~ Gilded Love_0000

I love this theme, particularly for outdoor weddings. In the midst of the most natural and raw surroundings of your wedding day, add hints of gold and you have the most lavish and yet earthy setting. For me this is the dream; the rolling countryside at its finest dressed with such decadence.

Wood and vintage elements work incredibly well when creating this theme alongside delicate touches of gilded gold…..
