Ahmed & Chama are a gorgeous couple that live in Dubai and came to Granada, Spain with their guests from all over the world to attend their wedding at the Carmen de los Chapiteles.  We were delighted when they asked us to be their wedding planners for this 2 day event.

The first night was a Henna Party with dinner and dancing at the Hotel Alhambra Palace.

The evening kicked off with the Alhambra Group playing Morrocan music as the bride and groom were carried into the teatro room on Amariyaa, following Morrocan traditions which is where Chama is from.
