Hi and welcome to Vows & Co!  If you bear with me I’d love to tell you a little bit about me and the reason for this blog.

I’m originally from Dubai, but have lived in the UK and US.  I was really lucky to have met the love of my life in 2010 while studying in Wisconsin: he’s a tall, handsome Scotsman who stole my heart and took my breath away. When he proposed, I was ecstatic and ready to plan our dream wedding. And while I had an idea as to how I would like our day to look and feel, I needed visual cues to share my thoughts with vendors, venues and, most importantly, him!

I’m the epitome of the girly cliche; I’ve been planning my wedding day for as long as I can remember. But, as a bride-to-be and one part of a mixed cultural couple, in my wedding planning process I discovered how difficult it was to find resources, content and inspiration for couples like us. I started Vows & Co. because I wanted to bring to multicultural brides (and grooms) a blog that share stories that are unique and full of inspirational ideas. At Vows & Co. we love all kinds of weddings – but closest to our heart are fusion weddings.

I currently live in Dubai engaged (pun intended!) in an LDR with my dreamy Scotsman who is back in Glasgow and we’re planning our big day for Summer 2017. This blog is a little bit for me but mostly for you. I hope it inspires you!
