regal middle eastern wedding at home

From Stylist and Planner Naseem Events “My inspiration for this shoot was old-world, regal meets non-traditional and ethnic.

Would you believe me if I said I was inspired by a wine goblet? That statement is entirely true! My vision for this styled shoot was brought upon after seeing the vintage wine glasses you see below. I wanted to embody an ethnic meets modern aesthetic, while incorporating old-world, regal elements.”

“I wanted to scurry away from the typical rustic, bohemian look and my vision came to life when paired with Nataly Zigdon’s moody style – making for some seriously gorgeous photos.

The elements that really brought this shoot together included the wedding dress, which as you can see has Middle Eastern-inspired embroidery, tons of metallic plateware, as well as deep, floral tones.”

“The best part? Having real food during the shoot which is something you don’t see

every day! My lovely friend Shivani of the Plate Escape created these gorgeously artistic plates which totally brought the regal notch to a whole new level. We feasted on apricot-stuffed goat cheese truffle appetizers, creamy mushroom bisque, tandoori lobster tails with masala chimichurri, and a carrot pudding bowl with pistachio mousse and ginger cookies for dessert. It was delicious!”
