Dubai Destination Wedding Photography Story | Nikita+Patrick

A spectacular Dubai destination wedding celebrating love between two multi-cultural families

We knew this Dubai destination wedding was going to be something amazing when we met our bride Nikita and her Mom a few months ago in India. It was going to be a blend of two families and cultures, bringing together two people in love in a lifetime bond. The couple began dating when they were in colleges, and now live in New York City but decided to have their wedding in Nikita’s home in Dubai. From that very first day, we knew this one would be something special; after all, whatever happens in Dubai happens larger than life!

Part 1: The Pre-Wedding

A day before the wedding celebrations began, we flew to Dubai for a small pre-wedding session with the couple. Nikita didn’t want the cliche desert shots for their pre-wedding as Dubai is her home. Instead, they wanted a peaceful and intimate shoot in their home garden. And in our opinion, that made it much more special. (And what a garden it was, lush jungle in the middle of a desert!)

We still wanted to get some shots of them during the sunset, so we drove to the beach near their wedding venue to get a few portraits of them in the water. And to our luck, the skies didn’t disappoint!

The wedding celebrations started with a casual and fun Rodeo themed evening. The aim was to have a quiet night with friends and family before the wedding chaos ensued.

Part 2: White Wedding

Nikita and Patrick planned not one, but two weddings – the first of which was the white wedding (which we were really looking forward to!). Before the ceremony, we captured Nikita and Patrick with their best buddies, getting ready for one of the most important and beautiful days of their lives.

Patrick entered the venue with his mother, while Nikita made her much awaited bridal entry hand-in-hand with her father. All eyes were on our beautiful bride.

The wedding officiant was a young minister who made the ceremony quite fun and interesting. But it was Patrick who got Nikita all emotional and teary eyed with his beautiful vows.

We got a few portraits of the newly-wed couple and their bridesmaids and groomsmen before the wedding reception.

Part 3: Reception

Nikita and Patrick entered their reception all happy and dancing! Soon, it was time for the couple’s first dance, and then came the father-daughter dance. One of the most special things about their reception was a bouncy castle. We’ve never seen one at a wedding so of course, we had to get in on the action and make some images!

Guess someone had too much fun!

Part 4: Hindu wedding ceremony

This was quite special, as Nikita’s mother helped her get ready for the Hindu wedding. It’s uncanny, they look so much alike they could be sisters!

Patrick and his family and friends were such great sports at the baraat. Although, no one really knew what they were supposed to do, they had fun just dancing to the beats.

The wedding ceremony was an intimate one, full of love and warmth between the two families.

Part 5: The Grand Budapest night

The theme of the night was ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel‘. The bridesmaids and groomsmen were in coordinated outfits and the night was made super fun by their dance performances.

Dubai really lived up to it’s name and we had a great (and exhausting) time making this story. Don’t forget to watch their video trailer below! We wish Nikita and Patrick a lifetime of happiness t(w)ogether!
