I was a Great Fosters Wedding Photographer for this couple. This gorgeous couple met on a night out in London with common friends. It didn’t take long for Ammar to pursue this lovely lady once he’d laid eyes on her, and he was on a mission to impress! Ammar would be no stranger on a show like Masterchef with his culinary talent whipping up a delicious 5-course Michelin star worthy meal with relative ease. Rumour has it that when he has friends over for dinner, the flowers and table arrangements at his home are not that different from the opulent table designs by By Appointment Only Design at the wedding! It didn’t take long for Hayley to fall for this charming man, and it was just a matter of time before Ammar asked for Hayley’s hand in marriage.
It was quite evident from Hayley and Ammar’s beautiful wedding that they both enjoy the finer things in life. The wedding itself was a beautiful marriage of Arab and English cultures held at the luxury romantic country house hotel Great Fosters. The stunning 14th Century Tithe Barn was draped with up-lit white fabric by Party Lights and the tables were adorned with silver Moroccan-style lanterns – somehow this contrasting English/Arab them worked beautifully. From the intricate gold stationery to the wood and moss escort card holder, detail was obviously important to this couple.
We were blessed with a beautiful English spring day. I had been on a venue visit the week before when the trees were still barren only to find a burst of stunning white blossom which had made an appearance on the day of the wedding – this formed the perfect backdrop to some of the couple portraits. Hayley’s Caroline Castigliano dress was like a dream with it’s full skirt and intricate lace bodice, she looked elegant and no less than a princess.
Here’s to wishing Hayley and Ammar very best wishes as they start this journey together in life, it’s pretty evident that they are a perfect match and will spend many, many happy years together. And Ammar and Hayley: if you are ever short of a guest at one of your 5-course dinner parties, I will be there in a flash as an obliging guest as I’m just around the corner from Bayswater! I really enjoyed being a Great Fosters Wedding Photographer for Hayley and Ammar.
