Colorful, Cultural & Classic: An Arabian Desert Elopement

I’m so excited about finally sharing this fun, romantic desert elopement shoot with you. The Aisle Guide featured it on their website some time ago. But I thought that it was just too gorgeous not to share once more!

But before we get to the stunning images, here some background information

“This fun, romantic desert elopement took place amidst the breathtaking dunes of the Arabian Nights Village in Abu Dhabi. The inspiration behind this shoot was the combination of the colorful Arabian culture and the purity and simplicity of a destination elopement. The key elements to creating this look and feel were the majestic camels in their traditional style and environment.

Equally important were the carefully designed stationery accents and two-tiered cake, both inspired by the movement of dunes. To keep the appearance of the couple and décor simple, letting the surrounding dunes shine, the table was decorated with chic, artistic plates, candles, and white roses. The bride’s petite wedding bouquet was a perfect complement to this wedding style with its romantic, yet expressional flowers. The stunning desert sunset cast a shimmering gold curtain over the dunes for some spectacular photographs before the couple’s magical evening came to an end.”

Enjoy the inspirational images of this gorgeous desert elopement
