A beautiful yellow and blue affair…wedding

Posted on: September 28th, 2015 by Carolyn No Comments

Featuring Hannah and Jules` wedding captured by Maria Sundin is a huge honour as Hannah is a very special friend of mine and I love Maria Sundin`s work!  Hannah and I used to work together and I would watch as many hopefully admirers would try to pursue this pretty lady but none of them were quite right until Jules came along.  I am sure all those close to Hannah would agree that when she met Jules we knew he was the one and were over the moon when we heard they were engaged!  Hannah and I shared lots of cups of tea when she would share her vision for her wedding with me and describe all the little details she wanted to include.  Although they had a few little hiccups on their wedding day due to the weather, it is clear that it was a day filled with the most important factors, love, happiness and fun!  I love the fresh pops of yellow combined with the blue and how beautiful is this venue!

A few words form the bride…

How you met…
We met on Valentine’s Day in Mahiki in Jumeirah Beach hotel.  Him and his friend came over and chatted briefly with my friend and I and we exchanged numbers.
The proposal…
We went on holiday to Turkey with my family.  He dressed my one year old niece up in a dress that said ‘Will you marry me?’ – How could I refuse.  We then went on a yacht and celebrated with my family.
The highlight of your wedding day…
I loved walking down the aisle.  Standing there in my beautiful dress seeing all my closest friends and family and my husband to be waiting at the end and knowing that this was my big day.  The sea, sand and sun and hearing the music we chose ‘One, Two, Three, Four’ by Plain White Tees to walk down the aisle too – I loved that song before and now it is even more special because it reminds me of that moment!  Love watching it back on the video.  Also seeing how all the bits and pieces I’d bought and made fitted together because you don’t see that until the day…which really worried me!
Your wedding venue…
Shangri La Qaryat Al Beri Abu Dhabi
Advice you can suggest to brides planning their own wedding…
When little things go wrong or aren’t what you dreamed they would be, keep focussed on how lucky you are to have all the special people in your life around you at one time and the main purpose of the day, marrying the man you love. (I did this a lot when I woke up to a sandstorm on the day of my BEACH wedding and very little was as I had planned!)  Also I would recommend having a videographer.  We only got one last minute after umming and ahhhing about it but I found it so fantastic to see what was going on when we were having our photographs and to capture all the little details that you miss in the fast pace of the day, to look back on at our families from babies to elderly relatives and in the future to show our children. So nice to go back and re-live it! I’d say it is a must to have a videographer now.
Your favourite part of planning your wedding…
I enjoyed making lots of things myself and the crafty side of it, I also loved trying dresses on as I’d always dreamed of doing this.  I liked gathering ideas on the internet.
DIY elements in your wedding…
Cocktail glass trims and cocktail station, table cloths, centrepieces – lemons in a jar, wooden slab, candle and vase with single stem of flowers, invitations.
Challenges while planning your wedding…
I found it very stressful, which I think was compounded by having guests coming from all over the world and wanting them to have a fantastic 2 week holiday here in addition to the wedding.  You don’t anticipate how many small details there are to plan.
Your dress…
It was tight to below the waist and then I wanted it as big as possible so wore a large hoop under it. I felt it was a combination of sexy and princessy!
Your first dance song…
 Ed Sheeran – Thinking out loud
