Cultural Fusion for a stunning couple from the Middle East who chose Phuket for the Private Wedding Ceremony.
I couldn't have been more delighted when I was asked to arrange the private wedding of Sahar and Ahmed whilst they were on holiday here in Phuket. We met and within 3 days their dream wedding had been arranged. Set in the garden of a private villa in Rawai, the all female team created a stunning fusion of Middle Eastern and South East Asian decor to bring the two countries together, it really did look amazing, we used Moroccan lanterns, thai orchids and of course the colour coded pineapples which appear at all of my weddings were very much on show.
I had a day out with Sahar before the wedding to choose her dress, she wanted a western style dress and the reason for the privacy of the wedding was so that she could be without her hijab for the ceremony so again we had an all female wedding dress team. On the day the female makeup artist created the look which Sahar had requested while the girls worked their magic in the garden creating the beautiful ceremony set up. We had a female photographer and video team too who were capturing every moment throughout the day.
When the time arrived for the ceremony, Ahmed and I watched as his stunning bride made her appearance with a walk from the rooftop on the villa along the stairways decorated so pretty with hanging orchids with a backdrop of Arabian music, I almost felt like I was back in the Middle East myself. The ceremony was a western style with my signature sand pouring, we chose bright colours for the sand to contrast the natural colours of the set up and to add some more Middle Eastern zest to the day.. After exchanging rings and vows we had a really cool photoshoot followed by a private dinner for 2 in the villa. I had such an amazing day and the pictures are fantastic but due to modesty I can only share with you just some of them. the most important people that have them for a life time are Sahar and Ahmed
Special thanks to my girl power team that day, Makeup artist Jam and photography team from Kataweddings. xx
