Nathalie & Omar ♥ Dubai
Today’s real wedding film will bring a glow to your Monday morning; not only because Nathalie and Omar’s wedding took place on a beautiful palm-fringed beach beneath the clear blue sunshiny sky of Dubai, but also because they just seem so truly happy, their beautiful day is full of fun and it ends with everyone dancing in the moonlight.
This glamorous, sleek and stylish Dubai city wedding took place at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton beach resort. Nathalie stole the show, ever the graceful and elegant bride in her gorgeous Jenny Packham gown, whilst her ‘something blue’ was a pair of cobalt blue Manolo Blahnik shoes no less! A stunning setting and a super-cute couple made for a wonderful worldwide wedding.

We were lucky enough that this was our second visit to the United Arab Emirate city of Dubai and so we knew what to expect…although having previously visited didn’t stop us from getting giddy with excitement as we came in to land over the iconic cityscape. Looking out the airplane window, a sea of lights sparkled in the dark, mapping out the streets below (and The Palm and The World!) that make up this dynamic desert conurbation.
Charlie & Jono ♥ Dubai, UAE
Photographer: BlueCicada Photography
Don’t you just love engagement shoots? Being newly engaged is such a special time in your life. You are overwhelmed with excitement from the recent proposal whilst enjoying the whirlwind of starting to plan your wedding. An engagement shoot captures your happiness at this magical time, creating memories that you will treasure forever.
Having the Dubai cityscape as a backdrop for your engagement shoot is on another level though! What a great memento for Charlie and Jono of their life together in the fantastic city of Dubai.
“In true Dubai-style, Jono proposed to me post-brunch, which means post-all-you-can-drink-champagne, so we weren’t in the best state! Luckily he’d been prepared for a couple of months with a ring that he’d had made to include a diamond that was in my Grandmother’s engagement ring – good boy! Not sure how him and my Mum managed to keep that one secret from nosy me though!”
“As soon as I told my friend Caroline (who is a photographer – BlueCicada Photography) that we were engaged, she immediately offered to do an engagement shoot for us. We were both slightly unsure what to expect, and a little apprehensive, but it didn’t take long before we were getting right into it, with Caroline’s relaxed and fun approach to the shoot.”
“We’d lived together in Dubai for a couple of years by this point, so Caroline suggested that we shoot in the Old Town area where we live which has a real Arabic flavour, as well as near the iconic building of Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest tower). Caroline was in the zone, snapping away, switching lenses, climbing on benches etc to get the perfect angle, while we had some hilarious conversations and a great time!”
