Ready to leave for the church. My dress is Bahraini and the veil was made here in Dubai. Colin's wearing a traditional style dishdash (made in Satwa of course) with a brown top coat called a bisht.
In the garden at home before leaving for the church.

Arriving at the church.
Outside the church. Our wedding car is a '58 Chevy Impala which our wonderful neighbour Sam loaned to us for the day, including the services of his driver. Shukran gazelan Sam!

Our Order of Service. Azlin's gorgeous photo she took of us in the Empty Quarter last weekend is on the front cover.
Page 2 of the Order of Service.
Entering the church. The music was "God bless the broken road" by Rascal Flatts. I'd spent ages thinking about the music for the service, then I listened to the lyrics of this song, which are so appropriate, and thought "That's the one".
Cathy doing the Reading.
Signing the register. The music was "Eternal Love" by Joe Satriani. I had to get Satch in there somewhere :-)
The henna was done the day before the wedding and will last for a couple of weeks.
