From beautiful beaches to sandy dunes, Dubai offers perfect settings for a pre-wedding photo shoot. An endless montage of picture-perfect backdrops, this desert city can enhance any romantic shoot designed according to multiple themes or moods – be it glittery urban, ethnic elegant or natural vistas. This gorgeous destination enticed Yuktee and Mayoor to head there for their pre-wedding shoot. They picked the luxurious Madinat Jumeirah as one of their main locations as it had everything that made the couple swoon. Here, they share their beautiful journey of love and highlights from the shoot by WeddingSutra Favorite – CineLove Productions.
How We Met
“Words can’t do justice to the wonder that is love. Our first meeting was set up by both our families and the rest is history. Our destinies brought us together, and from there, we embarked on a journey to get to know each other.”
Mayoor found Yuktee’s understanding nature, ability to deal with his shortcomings and her unconditional support through every phase ideal attributes that he was looking for in his life partner. For Yuktee, it was a case of love at first sight!
Yuktee shares, “It was quite a nerve-wracking experience to start with as we found the concept of playing the pre-wedding video hilarious and cheesy and were not sure if we would go ahead with it. But then, we thought it would be a memory to cherish for a lifetime. So we decided to keep it very natural. Our photography team – CineLove Productions understood our requirements and helped us through the process of sussing out the locations and types of sequences to be shot. We stuck to a realistic theme, and requested our photography team to capture our natural chemistry instead of portraying an act, which felt like a refreshing change from some of the other pre-wedding videos we had seen.”
“Initially it felt a little awkward having a group of 8-10 people walking with us with cameras, but our team made Mayoor and Me very comfortable with the idea, and we started enjoying every moment from there on. We actually felt like celebrities! It’s impossible to choose the most fun part of the shoot as it was all a process and each moment was special. From the long car drive around the desert to cruising on the yacht, from walking around Madinat Jumeirah to our red carpet welcome at Shimmers Beach, every moment was bliss, and we didn’t want our pre-wedding shoot to wrap up when it drew to a close.”
“We got married in Dubai in July and our bond with CineLove Productions – which started off as a professional one – turned into something special during the pre-wedding shoot and the wedding as we got to interact with them on a daily basis. They are a group of highly talented individuals who work brilliantly as a team and ensure they cater to the host’s taste and requirements. The hospitality, logistics, and permissions of the pre-wedding shoot were managed by New Delhi-based Evolve Weddings.”
