Scrolling Instagram this past week, we happened to discover a wedding like no other - an ice-themed winter wonderland extravaganza. From a Frozen-esque wedding dress to an igloo wedding cake and even a snow machine, we had to find out exactly what went into creating such a showstopper of a wedding day, and if you’re planning a winter 2019 wedding, you might want to take notes.
Pamela Mehanna from MINE Weddings and Events was tasked with creating a frosty wedding for Maya Ikhwan, a famous face from Lebanon who also resides in London.
“The bride wanted an ice-themed wedding, but also at the same time not a cold wedding, showing their warm love,” Pamela told HELLO! “We worked for six months preparing for this set up with all the details that came with.”
Maya and her new husband Khaled looked over the moon with their chilly winter wonderland wedding, and Pamela took to Instagram to show off the big day and what went into creating it.
“We had snow machines that created the illusion of falling snow, and the visuals on the screens were following the theme as well. The flowers as well came directly from Holland with a layer of snow on them to match the theme.”
And it didn’t stop there either! “In the buffet area we tried to use items that were most related to ice, for example we made cakes in the form of an Igloo, and there was a snow house. The Wedding cake was also inspired by the whole theme.”
In fact, the wedding cake was so huge the couple needed a sword to cut it, and fireworks went off. Not a penny spared for this wedding.

The bride’s dress was designed by Zuhair Murad and was covered head to toe in icy looking crystals. Her makeup was created by celebrity makeup artist Bassam Fattouh and her fairytale hairstyle was created by Wassim Morkos.
If you’re tying the knot in 2019, it might be worth trying something a little different. Pinterest recently revealed some trends in the way people search the image-sharing platform. For example back garden weddings are up by 441 per cent, smoke bombs at wedding receptions have seen a 436 per cent increase in search, and gold wedding dresses have seen a huge surge with 1552 per cent. You know what they say, go big or go home.
