The Wedding Haven and the talented Bernie and Bindi from Bernie and Bindi Photography, decided to put together a photo shoot that reflected the beauty that Dubai has to offer.
"I wanted a bridal photo shoot that was non-traditional, yet elegant. So I came up with the idea of “breaking the rules” using a black wedding dress. Yes, yes, the idea came as a shock to many people who couldn’t wrap their heads around the fact that a black wedding dress could be as breathtaking as a traditional white and/or ivory dress if and when accessorized properly – and we did just that with the help of a super-talented team of suppliers," May Halasa, owner of The Wedding Haven explained.
The Bridal Look:
May chose two dresses for the photo shoot, both designed by Sara Mansour, a young Jordanian fashion designer and illustrator.
For the first look, the bride wore a long embroidered black tulle dress, with laser cut embroidered lace. For the second look, the bride wore an embroidered off-the-shoulder white dress, complemented with flower appliques.
To complete the look, jewelry designer Dalia Hamdallah ownder of D Jewellery, provided some of her designs to compliment the bridal look.
The make up offered understated glamour, with the help of makeup artist Melissa from Makeup by Base Studio; the makeup was kept simple and minimal.
Hairstylist Steve Wahab styled the model's hair in a soft romantic high ponytail with a side braid.
We topped off the second look with a fingertip length veil, with lace embroidery provided by The Bridal Showroom Dubai.
The Wedding Details:
The wedding had some geometric elements, such as geometric menus and place card holders designed by The Wedding Haven, a geometric cake designed by the amazing Ana from Nice Ribbon Atelier. She created a 3-tiered square cake that complemented the clean, minimalist, and non-traditional setting of the shoot.
The centerpieces were black-colored arranged in triangle glass vases.
The flowers for the shoot were provided by Irina from Blossom Tree Dubai, who used hues of blush, white, and greens to create a playful feel.
The tableware, Moroccan lanterns, chairs, and the gold sequin table runner, provided by Party Social, brought it all together.
