TRIBAL WHISPERS

Visuals by Abbi | Styled Shoot at Al Qudra Lakes | Lace in the Desert_0009

One of my greatest joys is teaming up with local Dubai talent and creating something just a little bit different. This shoot was one such collaboration. Whist romantic traditional weddings are beautiful, sometimes stepping away from the ‘wedding norm’ can be incredibly refreshing.

Together with Abbi Kemp we decided that we wanted to bring a tribal/bohemian vibe to this shoot and with the help of some rather fabulous vendors we were able to do just that.

Monica was our brilliant makeup artist who gave our bride Karina the perfect make up that really made her skin glow and some quirky braids as an homage to our tribal vibe.

Our gorgeously oversized bouquet was the work of Firenze Flora. The long trawling ivy gave all the drama we were hoping for.

Our first wedding dress was made by Dubai designer Susanna Rachel and the lace dress was an absolute steal from beloved high street store H&M. The shell necklaces and cuffs were all from Sloane Studio who have the most beautiful selection of accessories and bohemian goods.

Our table was put together by me using my (still kind of) new inventory and some handy DIY with an old palette.

As ever it was a wonderful team effort and my heartfelt thanks goes to each and every one….

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.
