Greenery inspiration for your wedding
> Greenery inspiration for your wedding

19 January 2018

Last year we embarked on a project with some of our favourite UAE wedding vendors. Inspired by the most stunning gardens at the Waldorf Astoria, Ras Al Khaimah. This little haven tucked away in the serene surroundings of the hotel gardens was just magical. Read on to see how our styled shoot can give you greenery inspiration for your wedding.

We were excited to be part of this styled shoot and create a very unique wedding setup which was designed with no flowers!! Yes you read that right, we came up with some really unusual ways to dress your table whilst keeping an elegant but simple design.

From sunrise through to sunset, the team worked together to make sure the wonderul Liz could get the perfect shots. We also had a very special guest for the shoot which really took centre stage! A beautiful addition to the team, keep reading on to see some magical moments captured!

The amazing Reesha came up with this beautiful design. With a very brief overview she worked her magic and she completely hit the nail on the head! A sleek modern design with leaf print and delicate fonts.

We wanted a really clean and crisp look with a burst of colour coming from the beautiful greenery. Focusing on Pantones colour of 2017, we kept the look very minimal and let the design fit into the garden, this ensured we didn’t overpower the beauty of the surroundings. The ghost chairs were an essential element for the look and let your eye focus on the table setting.

We created a beautiful cake table display that was both elegant and simple. Using hints of gold throughout added a touch of elegance and richness to the overall style.

The gorgeous model, also owner of Franzie’s Flower Design, was wearing boho inspired pieces by Boho Princessa a designer based in Dubai. The casual chic looks were perfect for the setting,  the delicate lace detailing, two pieces and beaded elements, each one unique, in their own way.


And last and definitely no means least ……. the stunning star of the show, Wadi! This absolutely beautiful dog was really the best behaved onset! So adorable and sweet he took it all in his stride. We will leave it to you to decide whether these are the truly the most fab pics?!
