Cairo, Egypt’s sprawling capital, is set on the Nile River. It’s an ancient city that also happens to be a modern metropolis. Cairo is one of the biggest cities in the Middle East and is home to the Egyptian Museum, the pyramids and Great Sphinx. It’s also a magical place to have your destination wedding in Egypt.
Carol and Andrè’s Cairo wedding is an event I will never forget. It was such a pleasure to photograph, and I feel incredibly grateful to have been flown out to Egypt for all their pre-wedding festivities too.
I shot this wedding alongside my close friend Inga from Glitter & Twigs. Inga is wonderful and we had travelled together before. So getting to see Egypt together was very special.
We got to know the couples friends and family ahead of the wedding as we joined them for three days of pre-wedding events including a Cairo tour, girls night and rehearsal dinner on a boat on the Nile.
Their big day took place on one of the hottest days Cairo saw in July, reaching a high of 50°C. The couple chose to have a romantic first look, before their church ceremony, and their breathtaking couple portraits took place on a balcony with a view of the Giza Pyramids.
They headed to a luxury private venue for the eventing celebrations. Set in an oasis-like estate in the desert with a bougainvillea lined drive, they danced the night away under thousands of fairy lights.
Egypt Wedding Photography
Wedding photography is the art of observation, capturing the emotions you cannot put into words. Documenting the moments that you never want to lose. It’s pressing the pause button on a single second so that it can be replayed over and over…
My wedding photography packages are the perfect partnership of documentary-style photography and elegant portraiture for a destination wedding. I aim to create a true reflection of your love for one another through my images.
