Monica + Salvatore – Dubai Wedding Photographer

It’s taken me a little while to blog this wedding as things have been pretty busy since thursday! Actually things have been very busy since January, but this week in particular there has been a lot going on. Finally I’m back at my computer and getting things blogged!

Monica and Salvatore celebrated their love for one another along with their family and friends who flew to Dubai from all over the world. Rio, Finland, Saudi – you name it and there was probably someone from there!! It’s amazing seeing how destination weddings come together. I am so amazed that Monica planned this whole event from overseas!! It was a perfect day!!

They decided to have their day at the Ritz Carlton in the Dubai Marina which I have to admit is one of the nicest venues I have been to! Jenna at the Ritz was an absolute star and helped out so much during the day. Any brides out there that are still  undeciding about their venue, check out the Ritz and contact Jenna, you wont regret it!!

Arriving at the hotel myself and Lucy from Love-Lucy videography headed to Monica’s room to start photographing Monica getting ready and all of her perfect little details for the day. Wow does Monica have some amazing jewellery!!! I still don’t know how she decides what to wear each day as they are all so beautiful!! I would want to wear them all at once! hehe!


We then headed down to the beach to photograph all her amazing jewellery in the sand. Since it was a beach wedding it fitted in perfectly with the theme of the day!

Monica is a very lucky lady!! First she got the Bvlgari engagement ring from Salvatore, followed by the other two.:)

Monica’s table numbers were so cute! Very personalised. Each table had a date that meant something to the couple. Very cute idea!!


Monica planned an all white beach wedding with hints of Tiffany blue running through the day. The theme was Butterflies as it has a special meaning to her and her bridesmaids who actually have the nickname ‘the butterflies’:)

Kameliya and Menka from Event Factory did a fabulous job putting together Monica’s big day!  My absolute favourite was the candy bar!! It looked awesome and tasted even better!!

A beautiful setting for after the ring ceremony waiting for dinner. A Casual setting down on the beach.

Even the drinks matched the day!

Monica and Salvatore did a ‘first look’ before their celebration down on the beach. I love this part of the day.

love the emotion!



Walking down the isle  Monica was greeted by walking through bubbles as well as Pasta and rice confetti.


After they gave one another their rings we headed down the beach to do a few photographs with the gorgeous couple and all their friends and family. Another perfect fit to their Dubai wedding was the camels passing down the beach just in time for a few photos!

They are so cute!!!

During the dinner the venue has these awesome paper lanterns scattered around.

The evening was finished off with some devine cake and wishing lanterns floating off into the distance.

A perfect ending to a truly perfect wedding day!!


Congratulations to both of you! I hope your day was everything your dreamed of and more! Good luck with your move to Zurich and the new chapter in your lives!

It was a pleasure to photograph your fabulous day and meeting all your friends and family who flew in from around the world!! I cant believe how much love there was and how many people made the journey for you both. Amazing.

All the best!
