A couple of weeks back I had the great pleasure to photograph Umida & Mohamed’s wedding in Tunis, Tunisia. Having been to Africa before, but never to Tunis I was very excited to come with them to capture all the fun and beauty of their wedding day.
I first met with Umida at a cafe in London and instantly fell in love with her soft, beautiful and compassionate nature. Her radiant persona continued to shine through that whole weekend I spent with her and Mohamed in Tunis and I came back with some amazing images, of one amazing couple.
Umida got ready at the beautiful Residence, one of Tunisia’s finest hotels. One amazing hotel full of character and North African charm. As I was photographing in paradise I decided to take some of the details outside and photographed the dress, shoes and rings in the hotel gardens. Both Umida and Mohamed was getting ready here which meant I could pop between their rooms and get some getting ready pictures of both of them. Once ready we headed of to the ceremony in one amazing limo! I’ve traveled in many, many wedding cars but this one wins the cool factor for sure!
Anyway, the ceremony took place and the sun was setting. I was keen to get some pictures in this amazing glowing light before it went and was so happy to arrive at the ancient ruins of Carthage just as the sun was setting. Perfect timing! Once we’d climbed inside (thank you U + M for making the trek) we wondered the grounds for some relaxed and beautiful images before making our way to the guests and the wedding reception.
The rest of the night Umida & Mohamed enjoyed the amazing Tunisian cuisine and danced away with friends and family from near and far till the early hours of Sunday morning.
U + M. Where do I start? Thank you so much for bringing me with you to Tunisia and for looking after me so incredibly well. I so appreciate all the amazing food, the outstanding hotel and my perfect place on the airplane! I was so touched by Tunisia and it’s incredible people, places and food. Seeing the two of you together throughout the weekend was incredible and so touching. I feel so very happy to have been there to photograph the moments of love and laughter that was all around for the duration of my stay. I’d like to wish you all the best for the future and I can’t wait to see you guys again soon.
Here’s a rather big taster of images. Lot’s of love. A
