Fitness influencer and wellness advocate, American-Lebanese Tracy Harmoush recently tied the knot with a dreamy backyard wedding in a scenic garden located in Faqra, Lebanon. For the big day, the venue was adorned with lush green foliage that complemented the surrounding trees, setting a scene that was just perfect for a June wedding.


For the wedding dress, the bride wore a non-traditional tulle gown with a corset-detailed bodice and thigh-high slit. As for accessories, Harmoush went the classic route with a sparkling diamond choker. The wedding, complete with an after-party was an intimate affair. For the post wedding bash, the bride changed her look for another ivory gown, which she styled with layered necklaces and easy tie-up flats.

Though UAE-born digital creator and style enthusiast Nadya Hasan tied the knot with Poca & Poca co-owner Wiktor Gniewek earlier in 2020 at Dubai’s iconic Burj Al Arab, the couple’s wedding reception took place this almost a year later, this July in Poland. Arab It girls including Hala Abdallah and Mthayel Al Ali gathered at the historic Palac Mala Wies garden to celebrate the duo with an epic fairytale wedding, complete with fireworks and vintage cars. The wedding came to a close with the couple driving off in their Porsche convertible decked with beautiful white flowers.


Given the opulent theme of her wedding, the bride stood out in a dreamy white couture gown designed by Rami Al Ali doused in intricate beadwork, with makeup by Monika Urbanik. The groom complemented her look in a classic black tux.

Egyptian actor Passant Shawky had her long-awaited lavish beachside wedding ceremony with husband at the Albatros Citadel, tucked away in a small city in Egypt this May. While the couple had signed their marriage contract earlier, a grand ceremony was still in the works, finally coming to life this summer. The venue came with the glistening ocean as its backdrop, with the couple sealing the deal surrounded by earthy rocks and lush foliage.

For the ceremony, the bride went for a flattering mermaid-cut J’Aton Couture dress embellished with refined lace, which she paired with a long chiffon veil and Miu Miu heels. And for jewelry, Shawky opted for an elegant diamond necklace by Jawhara jewelry. The wedding was graced by the presence of Egyptian celebrities including Rasha Mahdi, Poucy Shahawy, and Ahmed Hatem, all of whom come together to give their heartiest congratulations to the happy couple. A chic modern ceremony complete with the romantic classics, Shawky’s wedding was as close to an island paradise as one can get.

The bride made a conscious choice to wear a piece that could be re-used for years to come, and designer Sandra Mansour more than delivered on her request. Al Sheikhly’s gown was made in a manner that it can be taken apart and worn in several fresh waves, allowing the newlywed to relive her special day and make new memories in her one-of-a-kind bridal outfit.
