Emma & Khalid’s Wedding was a little different to your traditional wedding ceremony. They had already completed the legal part of their marriage and wanted a fun and relaxed celebration with family and friends.
They picked Yas Links Golf Club in Abu Dhabi as their lovely venue. On my drive down to Abu Dhabi there were several rain showers, so I was really worried for them that they would have to change their plans and move everything inside, but luckily the weather held out and when I arrived the tables had been set up outside and the family were having their photos taken on the huge lawn.
Emma chose a beautiful flowing white dress with a striking blue arabic motif and the breezy weather made for some beautiful shots of her long sleeves blowing in the wind. It was so much fun to watch her and Khalid together during their couples shots and it’s easy to see how much they adore each other. Aw!
Instead of having a traditional ceremony, they opted for a Ring Warming. Their wedding rings were tied to a little dish with a ribbon and then passed around from person to person throughout the afternoon, to be blessed with peoples thoughts and wishes for the couple. I thought this was such a lovely idea and luckily the rings made it safely back on to Emma & Khalid’s fingers at the end of the night!
One of my favourite parts of my job is meeting so many lovely people, and Emma & Khalid and their families definitely fit into that category. I loved spending the day with them and wish them all the very best for their future together.
