Mark and Laura had us at ‘Nurai Island, speedboat and dogs’ !
This glamorous couple were married in late October at the spectacular Zaya Nurai Island. Nurai Island is located off the coast of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, and was recently voted by CondeNast Traveller UK as one of the worlds 22 most incredible private islands. We can certainly see why with massive villas, modern architecture and a lush feel more often found in the tropics.
We always strongly advocate having both Bindi and I shooting during the wedding, and this was a great example why. With Laura getting ready on the island and Mark back on Saadiyat there were two really cool things going on in completely different locations. Having two of us shooting meant we got great coverage of both – priceless moments of Laura, Mum and the dogs and Mark arriving by private speedboat with the gents.
The ceremony and reception were held in grounds of the massive Water Villa. Jenny and her team at Nurai did an incredible job of transforming the property, from the ceremony area next to the villa to the reception on the large deck area overlooking the ocean.
The warmth and friendless from Mark and Lauras friends and family made this a truly special occasion.
