Dami + Wale: Unforgettable Dubai Wedding
February 26, 2016
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone,our friends and colleagues who are connected to us via this platform. Its been a crazy December/January wedding season a lot of us would agree.We have missed you all so much and this is wishing you all a wonderful New Year with all its blessings. Today’s post is a very rare post as its about our very first destination wedding.Looking at the pictures in our archives brings back so many lovely memories and this particular wedding almost makes us teary eyed.
It was such an amazing shutter release filled experience from the airport to dance rehearsals to the welcome party cruise, to the main wedding, not to mention the amazing reception down to the wedding trash session. Our knuckles heard it big time!!! So many beautiful moments and it will take a long long time to forget our time with this amazing couple.
We got to know about Dami and Wale when Bellanaija posted their viral flash mob Proposal video on their blog. It was such a blessing to us knowing the amount of energy that went into the planning and execution of the proposal and this also gave us insight of their love story. You all should see the video here: https://youtu.be/g7R_l_m2AoE
So you can imagine our excitement when event planner and fixer extraordinaire @bisolatrendybee reached out to us to photograph their big day in Dubai. Fast forward to our first meeting with Dami we immediately become friends and we knew we were ready to go all out for them to ensure every beautiful part of their day was captured and remained memorable.
We started photographing them right from the airport as we were on the same flight to Dubai.This helped create a bond between us and the couple very quickly. Being Wale’s(the groom) first time in Dubai he was ready to make the very best of it.
We photographed the bridal party’s group dance rehearsal the next morning where they choreographed different hit songs from Nigeria to thrill the audience on the big day at the Four Seasons Resort in Jumeirah. The rehearsal was so energetic and fun.The wedding nuptials was conducted in a garden space at the hotel which was also the venue for wedding dinner/reception in The Grand Ball Room.
After a short break at noon, we proceeded to the Dubai Marina where they had a welcome dinner cruise for all their guests on three big yatches.
The Big day came filled with so many special moments with guests who flew in from different parts of the world. Dami and Wale’s memorable day were given the time of their lifes. They had an intimate and colourful solemnisation by the garden area and then moved into the Grand Ball Room space for the reception which rocked till 3am.
One thing we enjoyed thoroughly was that we weren’t restricted by space nor by our clients and their guests. To crown our trip with so much sweetness, few days after, we had a Trash The Dress session at the Atlantis Hotel one of the coolest places in Dubai, amazing scenery and fun couple. The combination was so right!!!
As I prepared this blogpost and glance through these pictures, I feel so much nostalgia. From their vows to their love story as projected during their dinner l, everything was so touching and inspiring. So much love, so much care and so much respect between their families and friends.
Love is Everything…Friendship is Gold! We had so many photographs and enjoyed every bit of this trip.This is one event we wont forget in a hurry!
