Kim & Stuart’s Real Wedding

Kim and Stuart travelled from their adopted home land of Dubai to get married at Cooling Castle Barn in Kent in front of 110 guests. The couple had been together for three years before they got engaged, and had a six month long engagement before celebrating their big day on the 18th May, 2012.


A Fairytale Dress

Kim only had one day to choose her dress when she was visiting the UK from Dubai. The original one she ordered arrived the day before she was due to fly back and wasn’t even the right colour! Kim, her mum and her sister were women on a mission, and after trying on ten different dresses Kim found one that was even more perfect than her original choice. The ruffled Ian Stuart creation featured lace trims, intricate beading and a flowing train.


The bride, who used to be a professional make-up artist, took care of her own bridal beauty, and entrusted her usual hairdresser to tame her tresses into an artfully undone up do, decorated with pearl and diamante hair slides, snapped up from Claire’s Accessories.

Kim was delighted with her wedding hair and had wedding hair stylist Ian Rustell to thank for his amazing work.
