Sobia and Zohaib, Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai
From a serene ‘nikah’ at Madinat Jumeirah to a rocking reception, this wedding spread across the most beautiful venues in Dubai was fused with traditional rituals and modern glitz.
There is beauty in simplicity and Sobia and Zohaib’s wedding celebrations meticulously planned by WeddingSutra Favorite – BAQAA Glamour Weddings & Events at the luxurious Madinat Jumeirah in Dubai reflected that. Check out the details and take a peek at the stunning pictures captured by WeddingSutra Favorite House on the Clouds.
Sobia and Zohaib’s pre-wedding shoot on the serene beach consisted of a picture-perfect backdrop and fabulous frames. The couple realized that they wanted something sophisticated, classy yet flamboyant. These photos captured by WeddingSutra Favourite House on the Clouds – and the memories involved in making them – are something that they will cherish for life.
Sobia and Zohaib’s wedding celebrations started with a mehndi function where friends and family came together to celebrate the beautiful ritual before the religious ‘nikah’ (Muslim wedding ritual) took place. The decor theme included an explosion of colors such as bright pinks and yellows as the couple wanted the bright shades to stand out in contrast to the lush green lawns.
The sangeet was a fun affair with lots of dance performances and great food. Sobia looked lovely in a purple lehenga which was embellished with stunning gold thread work embroidery on the blouse, and Zohaib looked every inch a dapper groom in his black bandhgala jacket and white pajamas.
The ‘nikah’ was held the next day at Madinat Jumeirah in the presence of family and friends. Zohaib made a picture-perfect entrance, and Sobia looked ethereal in her cream and gold lehenga with a translucent dupatta dotted with shiny sequins which was beautifully draped over her head. She accessorized her look with statement jewellery. Zohaib matched her look in his cream sherwani and colorful stole. The couple focused on the serenity of this ceremony, and they will cherish those moments forever.
The theme for the reception which took place at The St. Regis Dubai was based around white and gold hues for an elegant, regal vibe. Everything, from the floral arrangements to the creamy drapes, reflected that. The addition of purple lighting lit up the ambiance that was already resplendent with flowers and white accents. Sobia’s ensemble featured beautiful gold embroidery on the skirt, net dupatta, and blouse. Zohaib wore a sharply tailored black tuxedo. Guests enjoyed the rocking music and danced all evening.
