Manal and Charbel tied the knot in an Orthodox ceremony in Beit Mari, Lebanon on a beautiful summer day. Wearing a gorgeous A-line gown, Manal’s pearl encrusted hair accessory was custom made specially for her. She wore an elegant diamond necklace and stud earrings giving a classic statement to her bridal style.
Manal arrived at the church in a classic blue Rolls Royce and walked down the aisle to the groom- Charbel, who was suited in a handsome blue suit. The flower girls were dressed in pretty white dresses with floral head pieces, while the ring bearers were dressed in grey and white suits, with peach bow-ties and suspenders.
After the wedding ceremony, Charbel and Manal held their reception at Dier Al Kalaa which was decorated after the theme Enchanted Forest. The decor featured beautiful green leaves cascading down from the roof, accented with large suspended chandeliers. The white and green colour theme continued with the table decor which featured elegant centrepieces of white and green flowers along with tall white candelabras and candles, on rustic white wooden tables.
As per tradition, the groom made his way to the dance floor with a Lebanese zaffe, and the bride was escorted by her girl friends. Mid-way through the reception, Manal changed into a beautiful embroidered backless gown with a train.
The 5-tier wedding cake was elegantly decorated with flowers down the side. It was cut by the bride and groom with a sword.
