BAB AL SHAMS DESERT WEDDING | MELANIE & TIM

Bab al Shams Wedding | Styling Dubai-6
It gives me the very greatest of pleasure to share with you this very special wedding, not only because it was filled with absolute joy but also because I was lucky enough to have worked closely with Melanie & Tim to style and execute their elegant desert vision. There is no doubt that Bab al Shams is a beautiful venue with its Arabian decor and views of the desert.

Melanie’s beautiful bespoke dress was made by Barbaranne from House of Moirai and her look was finished off with makeup by Jill Elizabeth and carefully chosen accessories; Melanie was the very essence of a bridal elegance.

The blessing was held in a private courtyard at Bab al Shams and afterwards the guests were invited for cocktails on the rooftop followed by a falconry display and camel rides – the perfect slice of the UAE for overseas guests.

Melanie and Tim wanted to introduce a touch of their English roots with the vintage plates and crockery from my inventory which we paired with antique silver candles and signs which I created. One of the most fun aspects for me was creating their tableplan; an upcycled palette, some DIY and lots of foliage and flowers went into that little (or not so little as it turns out) project. Reesha from Pret a Papier was on hand to create the stationery and name places which pulled together all the aspects perfectly.

Captured oh so beautifully by Natelee Cocks I suggest you grab a cuppa and watch the story of the day unfold…..
