Weddings shot throughout the world. Oliver and his team are often commissioned to shoot photo and film for weddings.

Pre-nuptial shoot are great fun. I like the simple, real style for these shoots. And they look beautiful in a book.

Jaime and Hossame’s wedding at the Park Hyatt Dubai was designed by Ali Bakhtiar. They travelled from Canada to get married “arabic” style before doing a western “style” one in Canada. Unfortunately, we didm;t get to travel to Canada for the Canadian version!!!

We also produced a beautiful video along with my Photo Solutions team, Emiliano, Ali, Reinhard and Arjay… www.photosolutions.me

Alex and Georgina. Swiss + British. What an amazing fusion of love and passion for life… the wedding was held at the exotic Bab Al Shams Resort in true Arabesque style. This spectacular desert wedding was a show in itself like a extract out of a adventure story. Many of their guests came from overseas and even a Sheikh arrived by helicopter to cerenade the wedding !

I love when my clients are willing to get creative. This was a pre-wedding shoot arranged primarily so Yannick and Sara understood the way I work and so that Sara could feel more relaxed  and comfortable for the wedding day. It paid off! We were able to capture some shots we are really happy with…. both at Bastakiya and at the wedding itself the following week

Joel Gabriel assisted me on this shoot while we walked, talked and photographed… we had a great time and i had the opportunity to speak French with Yannick. On top of that, as you can see Yannick and Sara are keen Salsa dancers and i love shooting dancers!

This delicious wedding in Dubai late November 2010, just when Dubai’s ferocious summer is starting just to be part our distant memories and we can truly appreciate Mediterranean style climate… this is Nicolas and Aser’s big day. I was covering this wedding with my good friend Ivana Maglione, a formidable wedding photographer though specialising mostly in Arabic, female only weddings. For this wedding Ivana was in charge of capturing Aser and the ladies. My job, partly because I am half French and speak it fluently, was in charge Nicolas and the boys.  The day was full of surprises, emotions and the mix of nations from France to West Africa made for a beautiful cultural cocktail!
