Best of 2014|Bride Club ME’s Favourite Features
Now into our third year since our website went live, and turning a new chapter with the year ahead, Bride Club ME reflects and takes a look at our most popular and favourite features of 2014. From organising our fourth styled photo shoot with a Gothic twist, to featuring lots of diverse and beautiful reader weddings, below are just some of our highlights from last year. Enjoy!
Gothic Romance – A BCME Styled Shoot
Gothic Romance was our fourth styled shoot, achieved in collaboration with some of Bride Club ME’s vendor club members. “Gothic Romance” was captured by the incredibly talented fine art photographer Melissa Beattie, and I’m sure you’ll agree is a beautiful shoot, quite different from any other we have done before.

A Dubai Wedding At The Desert Palm, Planned By The Groom
Bride and groom, David and Astrid live in the UAE and we were super excited when we heard that David was very much the creative mind behind this gorgeous wedding. It’s not often we receive weddings where the groom himself has done most of the planning and DIY, and if David’s handy work is anything to go by, we think more grooms should get involved in the wedding planning process.

Tips On Avoiding Wedding Disasters
For the average bride, throwing a wedding isn’t without its mishaps. These are usually rather minor; perhaps the cake is a little dry or you get stuck in traffic on the way to the ceremony. But for some brides, disaster strikes. Here, in addition to our tips, our real bride contributor Camilla Hassan offers some key advice on avoiding those wedding disasters. Read the feature here.
Rio’s African Adventure|Honeymoon Special
In 2013, I married my soul mate. It was the most incredible day filled with all the positive emotions one can imagine, but it was also a long process and left us pretty exhausted both financially and emotionally. We had to wait patiently for our honeymoon, our first real holiday in years. Here, you can read all about our African Honeymoon adventure. Read the feature here.

A Winter Wonderland Wedding In Dubai
Living in Dubai, we are used to the city forever keeping us on our toes with its latest grand announcements: a ski slope in the middle of a mall, no problem!
