We met…

Through Facebook when Alan enquired about a post Sophie had made.

Our proposal…

We had been on a night out celebrating the birth of my best friend’s baby. We were sat on the balcony having the final glass of the evening and I was watering the plants and then turned around to see Alan bend on one knee!

The following morning, Alan took my mum for breakfast to ask her permission as it couldn’t be official without it!

Our wedding theme/colours…

Mint green and Purple.

My dress…

A beautiful dress from Vanila Boutique in Dubai.  I loved how the dreamy dress accentuated my waist.

My hair and makeup…

My bridesmaids and I chose to do our own hair, and a close friend of mine is a freelance make up artist so did all our bridal party makeup.

His suit…

Alan and his 2 best men all wore royal blue suits from Ted Baker, with crisp white shirts which were custom made with purple details on the collar and cuffs and the date stitched in the back.

What our bridal party wore…

My bridesmaids and flower girls all wore mint green dresses which were custom made to suit their shapes and ages.

Our ceremony and/or celebrant…

Our ceremony was held by Alan’s uncle from the UK. We wrote our vows ourselves and the ceremony was held on the tee over looking the ocean at Saadiyat Beach.

We chose our photographer because…

Racha is so friendly and warm. Her candid pictures were what drew us to her as we did not wish to have all posed pictures.

We chose our venue because…

Saadiyat Beach Golf Club was simply beautiful! We loved the natural setting and the views across Saadiyat Beach are stunning.

Our menu…

BBQ through Springbok butchery – Whole spit roast lamb with other BBQ items and salads, perfect!

Our honeymoon…

We honeymooned in the Maldives at Kuredu Resort. It was amazingly beautiful and very relaxing.

My favourite part of the wedding day…

Celebrating it with our wonderful family and friends.

My piece of advice for other brides…

Enjoy it and try not stress the small details which might not go right, not everything will. Just enjoy the day being about you and your future husband, as that is all that matters

We did most of the wedding ourselves, such as decorating the cake and cupcakes, making flower arrangements and all other decorations and small details. Trips to Dragonmart are essential to save money on such things!
