Alexan­dra & John

The cou­ple planned their Scot­tish wed­ding while liv­ing in Dubai...

No. 1 Magazine - - FRONT PAGE -

Ages: Alexan­dra, 26, John, 29.

Oc­cu­pa­tions: Alexan­dra is a Make-up Artist and John is a Se­nior Trans­port En­gi­neer.

The pho­tog­ra­pher: Fo­to­genic of Scot­land,­to­geni­cof­s­cot­

Where: The cer­e­mony was at Both­well Parish Church and the re­cep­tion was at the Rad­stone Ho­tel.

The dress: Metal Flaque in Paris. We met... My best friend in­tro­duced us while we were on a night out.

The pro­posal... We live in Dubai now, so while we were home in Scot­land, John went to look at rings and de­cided to plan the en­gage­ment. When we got back to Dubai, he took me to Qasr Al Sarab (a lux­ury ho­tel in the desert) and got down on one knee while we were watch­ing the sun­set on the sand dunes.

Big­gest help... Both of our moth­ers were in­cred­i­bly help­ful.

Dif­fi­cul­ties... Be­ing in Dubai lim­ited the time we had to en­joy the prepa­ra­tions, I didn’t get much time with my sis­ter, mum or friends in the lead up to our big day but they all made it re­ally spe­cial for me when I fi­nally came home two weeks be­fore the wed­ding.

First dance... The One I Love by David Gray.

Ad­vice... Try to en­joy ev­ery minute of it and don’t rush into big de­ci­sions (like book­ing venues) un­til you are 100 per­cent sure.
