Laura and David's One and Only The Palm Wedding Dubai and yacht party

Laura and David's One and Only The Palm wedding was the second of their wedding celebrations. This first took place on a chilly Winter's day in London. It featured an intimate ceremony at Islington Town Hall and private dining at Aulis. The second part of Laura and David's celebration took place in Dubai, where they live. It was a joyful celebration for their friends and family from around the world.

Starting the day at One and Only The Palm

Nestled right on the end of The Palm Jumeirah, this One and Only resort was a beautiful backdrop for Laura and David's celebration. Laura got ready at the hotel, while David spent the morning at home and also heading out into the city for a pre-wedding drive. The preparations were as relaxed as the rest of the day. Laura and David's focus was a fun and joyful celebration with all of their favourite people.

The Ceremony and Drinks

Laura and David were marred in a beautiful courtyard, in front of a backdrop of white flowers. They exited the ceremony to a shower of gold confetti and then headed out to the hotel's jetty for drinks on the water. We took some portraits in the sunset with the Dubai skyline in the background.

Dinner took place outside against a backdrop of twinkling lights and candles. After some emotional speeches, the party started with Laura and David's first dance. There was also a traditional Chinese lion dance to bring good fortune.

A day-after yacht party

The day after the wedding everyone reconviened for a trip around the Dubai coast. Again, this was a really joyful celebration which ended with everyone swimming in the sea.

Let's make pictures together!

Hello! I'm Babb and I've been photographing weddings for over ten years!

I’ve photographed over 300 weddings, all over the world, I've won a bunch of awards for my work, I teach and mentor other photographers, but most of all I pride myself on creating pictures that my couples absolutely love, while not being very ‘wedding photographer-ish’!

You won’t catch me bossing your guests around or making you do hours and hours of endless group shots. In fact you'll hardly know that I'm there. My wedding photography style is vibrant and artistic. Whether your day is going to be laid-back or adventurous, it’s bound to include your favourite people and a few popped corks. It’ll be brimful of the kind of feelings you’ll want to remember forever, and I’ll be there to capture every fleeting and joyful moment, while you get on with having a brilliant time.

Joyful, vibrant wedding photography CAPTURING you & the people you love
