Lana & Hadi | Dubai

Destination Wedding

A Message From PTP

Within 48hrs of their wedding and before they go off on their honeymoon to South Africa, a few of my favourites re-telling the story of a sumptuous destination wedding in Dubai at the Per Aquum Desert Palm Hotel and Polo Club. I've shot here before so knew that this was a special place to have a wedding - and Nimati from Polkadots & Ribbons wedding planners made sure everything was perfect on the day.

For this wedding I had the pleasure of spending more time than usual with the groom and his groomsmen whole the bride preferred just a few shots during her preparations - and Hadi and his friends were such good company! Lana and Hadi live in Abu Dhabi but chose this venue as she always wanted to arrive in a horse-driven carriage to meet her prince before the party began! So after a sunny outdoors ceremony with over 300 guests - and with Hadi's nephew arriving in a mini-BMW bearing the rings! - it was off to a different location at the venue for one of the craziest wedding parties we've ever shot! The Denee Motion team of Max, Evaldas and Alex loved every minute and captured some epic footage with their drone - perfect for when Lana really did arrive driven by a white horse!

The partying was non-stop with Fadi Kod, a famous Arabic drummer who wowed the crowd with his infectious energy and incredible drumming style! And only when the bouquet had been tossed, the Jaegermeister shots had been downed was there a final surprise - McDonald's burgers and chips for everyone still partying at 01:30!

Have a wonderful honeymoon Lana & Hadi - I hope you love these images as much as I did taking them!
