It’s a totally gorgeous day which took place on the Muscat beach in 42 degree heat! I Just love a beach wedding and this one is just beauitful! I love the simplicity of this wedidng, no fuss, just pure elegance in this totally stunning venue. I am also loving Lucy’s wedding dress, it really suits her and is something I’d love to wear myself!

Emilie has been kind enouigh to tell us a bit mroe aiout the day, as well as a few words from Lucy.

‘The wedding day was all about celebrating with family and friends. The location was breath-taking. The Chedi hotel is magical. The wedding was very international, the Bride being Australian, the Groom English, set in Oman, in the Middle East, people from all over the world to celebrate this happy moment.’

‘I had a great time shooting the weeding. Lucy and Jamie are my For me, the challenge was the heat that day. It gets really hot in that part of the world, and it was 42 degrees on the beach that day (although, it is normally a bit cooler in April)! The sand was quite hot!
Needless to say, I had to shower in the afternoon!! The crazy thing though, it that it almost never rain in Oman, rarely cloudy, and on that day, we had some white clouds, a few drops of rain (very few). So yes, the weather can never be planned!’

The engagement happened in an helicopter ride above the great ocean road.

Food
The Chedi Hotel has amazing food. There was a buffet with a mix of seafood and various fresh salads, breads, wonderful things, and tasty treats !

Flowers and Decoration
We didn’t have any flowers as it is very hard to get great flowers in Muscat given the heat!
The locations being so amazing, we didn’t have to many decorations, just kept it simple because the grounds were stunning.
For the evening, fairy lights were put up on the terrace of the hotel.

Planning Advice
Manage communication, keep it open with all people involved.

    What a romantic place to have a wedding. I have never considered having a beach wedding before but after seeing these wedding photos I must have a beach wedding. The only addition that I would make to my wedding would be a red carpet stretching out on the beach.

    These photos are just beautiful, The Chedi Muscat is a gorgeous hotel and great wedding destination. There is a new guide about Getting Married in Oman, it has some really useful advice and links, you can download it from here: http://bit.ly/F_OmanWeddingGuide. Hope it’s helpful to anyone else looking to marry in Oman, it’s a magical country! I think the photos on the beach and in the gardens are just gorgeous, the hotel building is so striking too!
