I hear all too often from brides in Dubai that it can be a real struggle to know where to go for so many items. So today I’m listing some of my recommended places to go to for bridal accessories, from veils to jewellery and of course my favourite accessory of all time, shoes.


Level Shoe District, they have a dedicated Bridal section as well as the usual gorgeous designer shoes

Esposa, they are the exclusive stockists of Freya Rose amongst other designers

Priceless Dubai Outlet Mall, designer shoes at a snip of the price

It is with absolute delight that I’m welcoming ANAQA to the vendor directory today. Megan, the brains behind ANAQA is as sweet as she is talented ~ the perfect combination when you’re looking for wedding vendors.

Having worked personally with Megan on a number of shoots I can vouch for her attention to detail, her commitment and of course, the beautiful pieces that she creates.

ANAQA offers a fully bespoke service for all things headpiece related so whether you need something for your wedding day, your maids or even just something for a wedding as a guest then this is the place to go.

If there is one thing I adore it’s when unique talent comes together and this collaboration of Loblee Photography with Danani Handmade is exactly what I am talking about.

Beautiful photography meets intricately designed veil and voilà; it really can be that simple. There may be fewer elements to this shoot but that doesn’t make it any less inspiring. It’s the detail, the aesthetics and ultimately the simplicity that makes this mini shoot  so heavenly.

The best news is that  Danani ship their veils and other bridal headpieces to the UAE so if you dream of a juliet cap veil then have no fear ~ it is completely obtainable.

Now it’s no secret that I LOVE veils. I was never fussed until that fateful day when I first tried one on and I have been love drunk on them since.

Today’s post is not a plea to wear a veil (do) but simply to share my absolutely favourite veil images from some of my favourite photographers.

If you’re anything like me then you will be swooning for each and every image on today’s post.

LITD ~ Danani Collection and Loblee Photography_0000

There is nothing that I love more than discovering new talent and bringing it to you all, especially when focusing on one of my favourite bridal items ~ the headpiece. Today it’s all about Danani, an online store selling handmade adornments for brides based in Utah but selling internationally (and the UAE is on her shipping list, I checked!)

These pieces are simply beautiful and strike the perfect balance between elegance and red carpet glamour. If you’re after something completely unique Danani also offers a bespoke option so you can create the perfect piece to compliment your dress. 

In her own words, “Danani, bohemian at heart but in love with all things glamorous. You could not pin my inspiration at one point on a timeline, everything vintage speaks to me and each piece in the collection was inspired by the most fashionable women of a bygone eras. Whether the vintage voice is literal or subdued every Danani piece down to the last detail radiates timeless one of a kind style, meant to be a representation of you on your wedding day.”

Captured by the lovely Loblee Photography, I hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I do.
