Jumeirah Beach, Dubai

My first time visiting Dubai. What an epic visit it was capturing Jaz and Tom’s destination wedding, while I was there!

When I first met Jaz and Tom at a Silverlinings wedding fair in Northampton, I was thrilled. Jumeirah Beach Hotel is a stunning place to shoot a wedding and in front of the Burj al-Arab, would make it even more special.

I spent the week in Dubai with my family having a holiday. We all went along to meet Jaz and Tom on the Wednesday evening at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, to have a drink and to discuss their wedding day further.

Jaz, and her nearest and dearest got ready at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, where you can see the amazing Burj al- Arab from the room. Also, being able get a glimpse of the finishing touches put together on the beach.

The ceremony was held on the beach next to the bar of Al Marsa in front of the Burj al-Arab. Tom, who was relaxed and confident all morning, looked anxious and close to tears as Jaz slowly walked towards him. To heighten the emotion, a couple of Jaz’s best friends, Jaz’s and then Tom’s daughter read some beautiful readings that left everyone with a tear in their eye. The ceremony was also delivered by the celebrant Binny Baker who truly made it a special ceremony.

Guests dined outside, next to the beach at Al Marsa, where the couple also held their wedding speeches. This setting was stunning, surrounded by beaches, the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in the background and the Burj al-Arab above us. After this, the party then began. It was epic in every way. Everyone was dancing and with just so much energy! What an awesome party it was!

The opportunity to be Jaz and Tom’s destination wedding photographer in Dubai was so special. It was also a massive pleasure to work alongside a dear friend Amy Elizabeth Videography.
