The Wedding Filmmakers – A Stunning Destination Wedding In Abu Dhabi
Today we share a heart-warming video shot by The Wedding Film Makers, featuring the nuptuals of USA based couple Anayah and Lorenzo, who came across the videographers, while browsing the Bride Club ME vendor club. With so many beautiful arabesque touches and cute decor elements, the couple chose the UAE to say their ‘I do’s’ infront of close friends and family, celebrating in true style.
Below, along with stunning captures by photographer Visuals By Abbi, Adam Galwas and Rachel Rowson (videographers with The Wedding Film Makers), talk us through the destination wedding and capturing the special occasion on film. Enjoy!
A Note From The Videographers
Anayah and Lorenzo travelled from the USA for a weekend of celebrations in Dubai and Abu Dhabi with their close family and friends. They kick started their wedding weekend with a Dhow boat Cruise departing from Dubai Marina. Once the sun had set, they surprised their guests with some incredible song and dance performances before returning to the shore.
After a day of rest, their celebrations then moved on to the beautiful Yas Links on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi for their wedding and reception. Following their first look, Anayah and Lorenzo exchanged rings and garlands in an emotional ceremony next to the water. Their personal vows were some of the most beautiful words we have witnessed and were spoken straight from the heart. After some sunset portraits during the magical “golden hour” the Bride and Groom re-joined their guests for dinner and dancing under a canopy of lights decorated beautifully by Nancy at Lavender Blue and her team.
The following day the couple treated their guests to a private “desert safari” which included dune bashing, sand boarding, camel riding, and a sunset dinner. We all finished off the evening by watching some traditional Arabic dance performances which was the perfect end to their weekend of celebrations.
All these elements, combined with stunning visuals, allowed us to tell a captivating story with their wedding film. Their wedding was really one of a kind and I am sure the experience has left their guests with memories to last a lifetime. It was certainly one of the most unique weddings we have captured to date and we are so grateful to Anayah and Lorenzo for flying us out from the UK to capture their weekend of celebrations.
