Behind The Scenes With Bride Club ME {Rio’s monthly round up}

Behind The Scenes With Bride Club ME

It’s been some time since I have updated our ‘behind the scenes’ posts on the blog section of BCME. Firstly the summer season hit and events slowed down, I was then off on my belated honeymoon to Africa for two weeks, came back to the sandpit and hit the floor running. I’ve been a busy bee since my return from Africa and had a lot to catch up on. Any how, here’s what I was up to been up behind the scenes with BCME.

Launching The Engage Academy Social Media Pages

As many of you may know, back in June we launched The Engage Academy in partnership with The Fash Set. Our inaugural event took place at the CONRAD Dubai Hotel and was a HUGE successAt The Engage Academy we hold regular industry workshops and networking events.

The Address Downtown Dubai Wedding Fair

Hosted at the gorgeous Address Downtown Dubai, the annual wedding fair showcased handpicked wedding vendors in Dubai and gave brides the chance to mix and mingle with industry professionals and learn more about their services. Exhibiting at the wedding fair were some of BCME’s listed vendors, including wedding photography specialists Goldfish Photography and Video, Stationery Designer Design by Louma, Bridal Boutique Owner Anne Rashid at The Bridal Room and wedding concierge company Aghareed by Lafayette Weddings.

The event also gave brides in attendance the opportunity to speak to the Address Downtown Dubai events & catering staff in regards to their very own wedding venue facilities and services.

I was at the event as an expert speaker and media partner,  hosting two live Q&A sessions with brides. The brides, grooms and I, discussed everything from budgeting, planning, wedding etiquette, the benefits of hiring a wedding planner and more. It was so lovely to meet some of our readers and new brides in person, and I hoped the Q&A sessions left them feeling a little less overwhelmed.

Joining me at the event was my fellow wedding lovely Joelle, who was there promoting the launch of her brand spanking new website and wedding styling service ‘Lovely Styling’. Go check it out!

Our Third BCME Styled Shoot

Last Sunday, after a month or so of liaising back and forth with our suppliers for this shoot, we finally met and created magic. I don’t want to divulge too much detail just yet, but it sure was a labor of love, created out of a vision I had when meeting with fashion designer Olga Nurek in her stunning bridal boutique.

The Victoria Strange Boutique inspired me to create the theme for this shoot and all will be revealed very soon! I am completely in love with the above teaser images we have received so far from photographer Melissa Beattie.

Mylist.ae Workshop At O’de Rose Boutique

Planning a wedding is hard work and, knowing this, o’de rose and mylist.ae recently held an exclusive Wedding Workshop for brides-to-be! The Arabic-inspired ethno-chic concept boutique in Dubai, partnered with wedding vendors in the UAE to provide brides-to-be with an informative workshop to help them plan their big day.
