Mere golf club cheshire arab weddingPin it

It was a delight to be part of Hala and Hashim’s Arab wedding in Cheshire, which was a beautifully co-ordinated wedding. The lush floral decor by  Verdure was matched perfectly by the stunning location that is the Mere Hotel.

An emotional family affair, some of Hala’s family travelled from as far as Syria and needless to say they danced with joy for hours. There was so much dancing at this wedding, accompanied by live Arab music, that made the atmosphere just perfect.

I loved everything about this wedding and can’t wait to be part of another Arab wedding soon.

Beach wedding in zanzibarPin itGetting married in Zanzibar is a dream and being a Zanzibar wedding photographer, photographing a wedding there is a dream come true for me.

I photographed this absolutely stunning Zanzibar Ismaili beach wedding alongside a team of amazing suppliers from all over, the venue was the beautiful Melia Resort where the staff are totally awesome and the service is spot on, if you’re planning a wedding in Zanzibar, Melia is definitely somewhere you should consider. As a Zanzibar wedding photographer, I got to capture the stunning beach and landscape of Melia and even managed to indulge in some delicious fresh coconut water and East-African food.

When Irfan contacted me from Dubai about his and Aalia’s wedding plans, I knew I was in for a treat, our conversation went something like this ‘Bhav, we want you to join us for our wedding and come party with us, and in between the partying take some photographs’ – that was it, I knew I was going to make some amazing friends at this wedding.

For those who don’t know Zanzibar is close to my heart, I have spent many a weekends partying there! I was born and brought up in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania, so going back ‘home’ and being able to combine work with being able to see my parents who I hadn’t seen for two years, was a blessing. Everyday I am grateful for the opportunities I get with this job.

There was four days of partying till 4am. Four days of drinking mango vodka and tequila shots. Four days of love, laughter and happy times.

I can’t wait to get back to Zanzibar later this year to photograph more beautiful weddings by the beach.

Here are some of my fav images from the day 🙂

Great working alongside TJP Studios for the cinematography and big thanks to my sister Mohini for second shooting this wedding with me and much love to Janki Patel who flew in from Nairobi for the hair and make up.
