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. The venue as always was sublime to shoot in and we were blessed with such a cool and relaxed couple in Manar and John. 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.
