This year I had the chance to photograph an incredible arabic wedding in Brazil. It was not the first time that I registered the encounter of two cultures, but it was definitely something big in my life! Being a photographer of people, I have the pleasure of experiencing with my couples the various feelings that comes before the big day: happiness, anxiety, the wish of sharing moments and taking care of everything…. But in a wedding that mix two cultures, everything gets more intense! The possibilities double and something magical is created…

So I learned that arabic weddings are always full of great surprises. Because they have been changing greatly over the past years, you can’t really know which of the beautiful traditions will influence the big day, specially when it is a mix of cultures… So you might just be ready for a lot of different and unique moments!

That’s why, after such an incredible day, all I could ever think was: I need a reason to make an arabic wedding in Brazil to myself! Each peace of this magical day brought a taste of something new and a lot of joy.

Everything started with the completely different ceremony, that presented a little bit of the catholic orthodox culture and the crowning ritual, arabic songs and the famous “zaghareet”. During the party, something incredible prepared by the bride surprised everyone: a wonderful arabic dance presentation that made all the wedding guests feel like dancing “dabke” (even the ones that didn’t really know how). The cherry on top was when the bride started to sing a beautiful song to her husband :)

Definitely experiencing new cultures and being part of moments like this make my work as a wedding photographer a reason for infinite gratitude! After so many special details, this day could only be truly described with photography made with love…
