I am very fortunate to photograph weddings at some of the best venues throughout the UK. I regularly shoot in Scotland and have even photographed a wedding in Capri. Being asked to photograph Tordy and Bans wedding in Dubai was an amazing opportunity. I met them at Leah and Andys wedding last November. For their day, it was almost snowing. However for this wedding, it was in excess of 36 degrees!
The wedding was scheduled for just before sunset so I went and spent some time with Tordy and her bridesmaids beforehand. Having met a lot of them before, I felt incredibly welcomed. It was a fantastic atmosphere with many people flying in especially for the ceremony. The ceremony was in the adjoining One and Only Mirage hotel. I have never been driven so fast in a golf buggy to get there ahead of the bride.
The ceremony was amazing with the sun setting behind everyone. We managed to get some sunset images just as the sun quickly disappeared. Dinner and speeches were back at the Arabian Court which is a beautiful open air square in the middle of the hotel. Then, it was straight into dancing. The first dance was actually a surprise for Tordy as Ben had arranged himself and the ushers and best man as a Backstreet Boys tribute act! With minimal preparation time, they did a fantastic job with a medley of songs! After that, the dancefloor was buzzing all night. Here are just a few images from their wedding. Feel free to comment and share.
