Although I have shared these details a few times by now on my Instagram, I still get loads of questions. I don't mind them at all! but it is easier for everyone if I have them all organised and accessible here.
I have shared the wedding/reception details in this series, but I wanted to add the Henna night details briefly for a reference. I did hire many of the same suppliers but again to avoid any confusion , I will list them all below and some pictures for you to get inspired and me to look back at every now and then.
As a little background to why we choose who we did, I obviously wanted excellent quality but also wanted to be careful with our budget at the same time, so in some areas we might have splurged, but we managed to control the budget (the best way I knew how lol).
Venue: We had initially agreed to have it at a hotel venue, as we started planning it, I felt better about having a smaller event and having it at home in the garden. This way it felt like a full circle kind of.
Hair: Wafa from Lilac Beauty Center worked her magic on my hair. I was looking for something a little different than what I had in mind for the wedding and I loved it! She is the hair genius.
Makeup:The trusted Mareez, she did an amazing job on the henna and reception, I couldn’t have asked for a better makeup artist. They were two completely different looks and she nailed it on both days.
Photography: I loved my pictures, although I was very specific with what I wanted, I wish we had more candid shots and focused on the getting ready (I wasn't sure if I wanted that before the events started though). Regardless, we have a good balance of candid and posed images and we love them. Infinite Creative team did an amazing job and they often have packages on offer so watch out for their instagram.
My Outfit: We had my outfit tailor-made and it took over a month to decide on the design, fabric…etc but I loved how it turned out to be. I asked them to have the ‘poofy' part detachable so I am able to wear it easily after the wedding if I needed to and they did an amazing job with no delays.
Lighting of the entrance (picture below ):We hired Aiman to arrange it, and it was definitely inspired by pinterest! I shared an image of what I wanted it to be like and he worked hard to get it to be as close as possible.
The lighting in the garden was all done by my father who kindly and generously fixed them all himself and designed the lights in a beautiful breathtaking way (as you can see below).
Rentals: We used Hudna Trading for both events and they are amazing to deal with, the prices, options and the delivery was all on point - I would totally recommend them. Unfortunately I don't have images of the seating, but check out their account for all the options.
