Aliya & Rajen’s Jane and Indian wedding in Dubai – 4 days from the desert to the Burj Khalifa

Pithi Ceremony & Mehndi Party at Burj Residences

I have seen a lot when it comes to weddings, but Aliya and Rajen topped it all with their magnificent wedding in Dubai. 4 days of wonder, every day a very different scenery full of new tastes, colors and surprises. This extraordinary wedding voyage started at the famous Smiley center, where a lovely creative session was photographed and filmed in a beautiful authentic surrounding. A not-a-bit-less beautiful Aston Martin was the wedding limo taking them back home, which made my day when it came to find cool angles filled with extraordinary design. Rajen went trough an interesting ritual here, friends and family put all good things on his head, like eggs, butter, chocolates and colorful paints to give them abundance in their long life together.

Jain Blessings & Sangeet in Bab Al Shams

Next day started far out of Dubai in the desert. Bab Al Shams Desert Resort is a place that takes you back in time to the Islamic Golden Age, to a tale from One Thousand and One Nights. Sand dunes all around this little oasis as far as the eyes can see. Inside, you find a little village full of wonders from the Middle East, amazing colors, architecture and stylish design. The ceremony took place amongst the sand dunes with the setting sun as the background filled with splendid dresses, holy moves and strong emotions – it was a moment to capture for real. Great show with dozens of camels and horses, superstar entrance of the bride and a superb photo session with the friends made the night unforgettable.

Wedding Ceremony in the Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifa

Fast forward a couple of hundred years, next day we find ourselves in the highest building of the world. Burj Khalifa and the Armani Hotel opens its doors for the extraordinary wedding celebration of Aliya & Rajen. The guest list is full of international celebrities, the view on one side is the magical Dubai Fountain providing us with the coolest backdrop I’ve ever seen. And the Burj Khalifa on the other with its 828m lean body – made me get on my knees every time I wanted to compose somebody to one picture with the tower. A night of miracles and happenings not for the faint hearted, at one point during the night I found my team deep in the hotel water fountain. Guests with behavioral problems (according to the security who took us out of the fountain) were pouring extra dry Pierlant Blanc de Blancs champagne all over the participants, Rajen on top of a complice in his cool wedding suit, our team of 4 visual artist on the bottom with state of the art cameras and good friends shouting in ecstasy as a full bottle of this tasty drink is literally blown up. I never enjoyed this much licking my lens, this champagne is really the real thing.

We finished the night with the surprisingly strong Sanjay doing a few one hand push ups (again in the water fountain), which raised suddenly the excitement level amongst the guests hyping from the side and brought them also into the fountain. From this point, we kindof migrated the party from the Armani Hotel ball room to the waterside,- I recorded some unforgettable dance moves here, check the picturesque love story bellow.

Yuan at the Atlantis, The Palm

Last day, the 10th of April. We thought we have seen it all, but our lovely couple had more surprises and this day showed two more faces of Dubai. The palm, and its crown diamond the magnificent Atlantis is the direction on the invitation – when reaching the hotel ask the concierge for Yuan. For those unlucky, who have no idea who or what is Yuan: its an award winning Chinese restaurant with a contemporary twist. A quite big twist though, the music is new-age Chinese disco and the food is from out of this world. An orgy of tastes and flavors, rather a spiritual journey than eating. The hardest decision was to figure out whether to film or to eat those beautiful creations. Did both in this sequence and emerged in the contemporary style of the place, recorded great speeches and big hugs in a magnificent surrounding.

 

Party Boat at Dubai Marina

Leaving the fresh breeze of the Palm is something you try to avoid, except if your next destination is the Dubai Marina. The first time I heard of it tried not to go, who wants to see boats.. Well, this place is like Manhattan, just double the height and density and put it on water filled with spaceship style mega yachts. On the waterside, Michelin star restaurants side by side with luxury brands and top hotels. You feel on the top of the world cruising this bay on a huge yacht filled with music and lights, quite surreal and amazing the same time.

Destination wedding photography in Sifnos Island, Greece | Marina & Dimitrios’ passionate wedding

We were super exited when Marina & Dimitrios assigned our team to go to Sifnos, a beautiful island of Greece for doing destination wedding photography & destination wedding cinematography together and save this special occasion for the future.
We got so much good vibes, passion and love on the wedding, that it still warms us up during Christmas time. This wedding was really a unique one, not only because we had the chance to shoot the couple during several creative sessions before and after the wedding day, also to take part of their after-wedding beach party, but also because of the special atmosphere. The destination wedding of Marina & Dimitrios was modern, elegant, but still traditional and authentic.
We started with a gorgeous creative session at the Chrisopigi Church – located on a peninsula – with cool morning lights. The couple’s passion mixed with this perfect background just amazed us. We captured the lovers on the beach and followed them into the water. Definitely loved every minute of our “work”.
In the evening all the family members and friends got together for an original Greek evening, where – as a personal touch – the super pre-wedding dress of the bride was designed by her designer friend, Suitcase.
On the wedding day everyone was super exited, so many emotional moments, it’s great that we could be part of them, thank you! Our favorite moment was the traditional give-away of Marina by her father and all the family before the ceremony and the funny preparations of Dimitrios, based on Greek traditions (shaving here and there) and more (pouring ice cubes and beer on the groom).
Marina had a fantastic modern wedding dress by Myrto Dramountani and unique wedding shoes by Dolce Gabbana.
Personally my (Barbara) favorite part, as Marina walked along a small narrow street to the church with all her family and friends behind, the musicians playing in front of her and when they see and kiss each other on the courtyard of the small, cute Taxiarchis Church, Apollonia.
And the party, well, the most passionate party of all at the beautiful and cosy Rambagas Restaurant! Thank you for the decoration and organization to Milk & Vodka. And also for the perfect shape of the couple to The Hundred.

Check our best of pictures, I hope all this will go through.

Marina & Dimitrios, we congratulate to you and wishing you all the best from our whole heart!

Exotic destination wedding photography in Bali, Indonesia | Susan & Stefan’s dream wedding

Wake up with the sunshine playing with the waves and wind, ancient traditions, beautiful colors, friendly people, amazing art markets, mysterious fire dancers – that’s Bali. Come and travel with Susan & Stefan and with us through this breathtaking experience. We will take you to Bali to go through all these exiting happenings with destination wedding photography and destination wedding cinematography we did at this wedding.

Our lovely couple live in Munich, but as Susan’s family is from Indonesia, they decided to have their fantastic destination wedding in Bali, which I think was the best choice they could make. Our journey started at Kuta Beach, where you can surf on cool waves and see the most colorful sunset of your life. The mysterious, emotional and also very elegant ceremony took place in the famous Tirtha Bridal Uluwatu. This gorgeous wedding venue is on the edge of a huge cliff with magnificent view, each and every detail beautifully designed, romantic but still modern. In the evening all the lights reflected in the pool, as the shine of the firework, Susan & Stefan just fit into this unique atmosphere, as a prince and princess of an amazing wonderland.

You cannot see very often a beautiful bride jumping into the pool at the day of the wedding, but Susan did, as Stefan was waiting for her to make some underwater kissing by the colorful lights of the night.

To stay short, considering that our adventure just started after all this. We captured the lovers playing with monkeys, riding elephants, running on the beach, we followed them through rise fields, mountains, volcano and all ancient heritage of Bali.

Come and enjoy the journey with us. Please check also our destination wedding cinematography work: Exotic wedding from Bali, Indonesia | Highlight film of Susan & Stefan

Susan & Stefan, thank you again for having us and wishing you all the best for your marriage!
