Hello lovelies,

I’m thrilled to share this shoot with you today as it’s my first Middle Eastern feature. Zee and his family have given me a wonderful taste of Middle Eastern culture (as well as delicious food) and I’ve been lucky enough to travel to Lebanon, Kuwait and Dubai (where I also have family) but I’ve yet to attend a wedding out there!

Tasneem of Tasneem Photography explained that in Dubai it’s rare to see styled inspiration shoots (unlike in the UK & US where we have an abundance of them) so she collaborated with some of Dubai’s most creative talents to put together a unique, styled wedding shoot.

And what a glamourous shoot it is too!

The handsome groom is famous Egyptian actor Ashraf Hamdi while his gorgeous real life belle, Zeyneb, plays his high fashion bride. This beautiful shoot is filled with blush pink and pastel hues, an incredible gilded mirror, a noble steed, clouds of fluffy tulle and a unique, ‘inside out’ wedding dress!

Oh so beautiful.

Take a peek at this sweet film for an extra dose of loveliness:

I’ve no doubt this shoot will inspire lots of couples in Dubai to be a little more adventurous with their wedding day styling.

What do you think of the creative, inside out wedding dress by Reemami? It’s certainly not for the faint hearted!

Many thanks to Tasneem Photography and her talented team for sharing this gorgeous shoot with us to today.
