As our photographer Paul said:

This was our debut working with Zainab from Carousel Events, one of the region’s top wedding planners and she and her team were a real delight to work with. With separate entrances for the evening party respecting where they both came from – John’s Lebanese and Manar is Palestinian – as well as Manar’s niece singing a couple of songs in front of 400 guests, this was a night to remember!

Manar had made it clear when we met back in December that she wanted outstanding imagery without being overly epic or unreal. So a real mixture of punchy and contemporary.

As our photographer Paul Toeman said:

“Words cannot adequately describe the feeling of joy & love that Mohamad & Yara have for each other. I just hope these pictures go somne way to convey how magical this couple are. Being asked to cover their wedding in Dubai, UAE was an honour and a privilege – not having met them before I arrived. But working closely with my colleagues at Deneemotion I realised there would be no problem photographing this beautiful lady and her handsome groom.

Having already sorted the wedding paperwork at Yara’s home country of Lebanon, there was no actual wedding ceremony as such. So we made the most of our time togther by getting some relaxed shots on the main Dubai beach in the shadow of the Burj hotel. Moe confessed his love of Thai martial arts and his athletic jumping showed off his ability perfectly! But we had to be careful as local rules are very strict about photographing in public, as well as public displays of affection. This was fine as we were at all times professional and respectful. But this local rule didn’t apply to the wedding party a couple of days later!

At the sumptuous Address Montgomerie Hotel located in the Emirates Hills, I was lucky enough to have a full hour with the couple before the party began. Being able to stroll around the golf course capturing the late sunset and taking our time over shots they requested is a treat rarely afforded at UK weddings. Normally it’s rush rush rush, but not this wedding. Having covered Yara getting ready, and Moe taking his Ferrari round the block for a spin, it was time to greet their 320 guests. The party was in full swing from the off with a local band of musicians announcing the entrance of the bride & groom – what a fanfare!

Hours of joyous dancing, fireworks and food – coupled with a pair of professional tango dancers – made sure that this couple had the night of their lives. It has been an absolute delight working with them, and being in a position to give them a body of work that I hope they will treasure for years to come.”
