Forest of Arden Arabic Wedding in Birmingham, UK

There’s something about Arabic weddings that I absolutely love. The zaffa, the procession that announces the marriage of the bride and groom, is such a fun affair!! Tambourines, drums, trilling ululations, and stick dancers proceed the couple to the reception. What a joyful noise it is!

Eman and Khaled chose to celebrate their wedding at the Forest of Arden Marriott in Birmingham.

I am indebted to my second shooter, Alistair Beavis, for his energy and gorgeous photographs. You can see more of his work on his website.
