LITD ~ Melissa Beattie_0018

I do love a good engagement shoot and this one is a beauty. Melissa Beattie has once again done what she seems to do so effortlessly; captured Sally and Ash beautifully in love at one of my favourite places in Dubai, The Farm.

Engagement shoots are such a great way to get to know your photographer a little better before the big day and also get a set of beautiful images of you and your beau.

How we met
With Sally in Australia and Ash in the US at the time, a mutual friend brought us together in Egypt where we started our story.
The proposal
It was a gorgeous winter’s day in Alexandria, Egypt. The sun was shining and we were touring the grounds of one of the once-upon-a-time palaces of King Farouk. Ancient surroundings that were full of history. The perfect setting to this historic moment in our lives. On the wild and wonderful shores of the Mediterranean, across a quaint little bridge and over a bundle of gigantic rocks that saw a few amateur fishermen throwing their lines, we sat watching the waves crash. Ash suddenly got down on one knee and proposed. It was a couple of months later that we got the ring designed in Dubai.

About Jessica

I am the founder and editor of Lace in the Desert and have called Dubai my home for 4 years. Elegant design, romantic textures, intricate detailing and heart yearning photography are my loves. You won’t find a single wedding or feature on here that I do not think is truly awesome. I also love champagne and crumpets.
