A breathtaking Egypt wedding, with the pyramids providing the most beautiful backdrop! A day full of fun, with surprise belly dancing and a Zaffa - a traditional Egyptian procession where a band plays as the bride and groom walk along with their guests cheering and clapping as they follow. Guests enjoyed dinner and drinks at the foot of the Giza Pyramids on tables lined with bright pink and orange flowers and lit up with festoon lighting and lanterns. And it seems this was just the start of a celebratory few days, the bride and groom whisked their guests off to enjoy a spot of island hopping on a yacht after the ceremony!

What Made Our Day Unique

Adam and I met in Cairo, Egypt, 10 years ago when I was attempting to be an actress (but that's a another story!) so we thought there's no better place to celebrate than in the city where we fell for eachother. Since our guests were travelling from all around the world, we thought it would be spectacular fun to have our wedding at the foot of the Giza Pyramids.

Egypt Wedding

Having met in Cairo 10 years prior, the Egypt wedding held even more sentimental value! The bride and groom wanted to mix English country garden vibes with traditional Egyptian glamour! And they definitely did just that with the wedding breakfast filled with bright florals and the Giza pyramids lit up as the guests enjoyed the fun entertainment at the gorgeous destination wedding!

Inspiration & Styling

The vibes we were going for was English country garden meets Egyptian glamour and colour. We did some research in the market to find someone who would be able to master a fine balance between a European and Egyptian wedding.
