This weekend, following a yearlong engagement, son of revered Lebanese fashion designer, Elie Saab, got married in one of the most spectacular weddings of the year.


The wedding of Elie Saab Jr and Christina Mourad took place in Lebanon over 3 days and was an event to remember with a celebrity guest list, stunning surroundings, spectacular performances and couture galore.

The 3-day event started at Le Plateau de Bakish, with a magnificent reception then taking place at Fakra Club. The couple were married at Lebanon’s Church of Bkerke.

The bride, Mourad, of course was adorned in nothing short of fabulous as she was dressed in her father in law’s label, Elie Saab. The brand’s Instagram page shared the details of the bridal gown with the caption, “For the matrimonial wedding the bride stole our breath away in custom ELIE SAAB Haute Couture in an elaborate display of embroidery from the headpiece to the veil and royal gown synonymous with the maison’s signature Haute Couture craftsmanship.”

With all eyes on the bride, every detail of her look was meticulously planned as well-known Lebanese makeup artist, Bassam Fattouh, created her makeup looks using his own brand of makeup. He created a stunning classic smoky eye with a nude lip against an immaculate complexion, whilst the bridal hair was created by Wassim Morkos, a Lebanese hair-dresser.

The high profile wedding of course had a celebrity guest list to boot, including supermodels, style influencers and international stars; Sara Sampaio, Karolina Kurkuva, Karen Wazen, Lana El Sahely, award winning film director and actress Nadine Labaky and even Dita Von Teese.
