A Note From The Wedding Planners

Mixing European modernism and oriental culture, Dubai was the destination for our inspirational photo shoot at the majestic One & Only Royal Mirage. On the border of the Gulf Sea, mixed between breath-taking views and a magical set up that reflects both cultures, we spiced things up by adding juicy fruits and colourful flowers for the summer season. 

The inspiration behind our shoot was a Middle Eastern Royal Family festivity. To achieve this, we used warm, mind blowing and strong colours such as Red, Orange, Yellow, White, and Purple. We mixed flowers and fruits and added a touch of gold to represent the region on the table scape. We also added a touch of European culture to represent our origins. All of these elements were connected and represented exactly what we had in mind.



Our styled wooden table, decorated with beautiful runners, was enhanced by flowers and spiced up with fresh fruits all around the table surrounded by original golden plates and cutlery. We kept the colour tones in harmony between all the elements (the stationery, the flowers, the fruits, the cake…)


Golden chandeliers and beautiful flowers acted as centrepieces in different sizes to give some perspective. The golden chairs were draped with elegant off-white material and further modern and rustic decorations were placed on the table.

The menu was built based on the theme of the styled shoot; a touch of orange and gold with an Arabic design on an original acrylic support.

We designed a special wedding cake with the same colour tones to fit in a baby white carriage which was decorated with fresh flowers.

Our model Bride was dressed in a hand-made fluffy gown and pearls. Nude makeup and a natural hairstyle gave some elegance to this colourful decor. In addition, the Bride’s set of diamonds gave a touch of sophistication and was a nod to the nobility of the region we chose for our styled shoot.
