Few places epitomise wealth and luxury like the emirate of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. From the aquamarine beauty of the Arabian Gulf to the mysterious allure of the surrounding deserts, the metropolis of Dubai rises above all as a glamorous destination, perfect for a wedding. For this wedding at the five-star H Dubai Hotel, the couple gave our team the artistic freedom to curate a bespoke contemporary wedding, complimenting the couple's fine taste and showcasing the beauty of Dubai.
The couple, following their Anglican faith, chose the welcoming Christ Church located in Jebel Ali - Dubai for their religious ceremony. Some may be surprised, but the emirate of Dubai is open to people of all faiths, especially for weddings, there are many Christian churches in the UAE and many places of worship for those practicing other faiths.
The Mrs Wedding Planner team works with only the best, so our team scouts only expert photographers for our events. The photographer for this wedding captured this special moment of the Award-winning Nigerian recording artist, Banky W., taking a selfie of the entire bridal party after the bride and groom's religious ceremony.
This couple wanted an updated take on a white wedding - clean, light, and luxurious. The Mrs Wedding Planner team decided on a minimalistic theme, designing the couple's wedding reception accentuating white with fresh all-white floral arrangements. Round tables were covered with stark white linens and surrounded by white louis chairs, while the walls of the venue's main ballroom were dressed with white drapes softening the hotel's décor.
Our team designed these floral centerpieces on glass candelabras, assisted by our exclusive florist vendor in Dubai. Keeping with the minimalistic theme, spheres of white roses and white hydrangea surround the top and bottom of clear glass candelabras. Fresh green ivy winds its way around the glass stem, uniting the two blooms, grounded by petite votive candles on round mirrored glass to reflect candlelight.
Our team believes the focal point of every wedding is the bride and groom, so designing this elegant wedding stage for the wedding reception was paramount. The Mrs Wedding Planner team worked with staff at the H Dubai as well as expert stage production vendors in Dubai to recreate our vision for the wedding stage. The amazing lighting design crew created a custom arrangement using pops of coloured mood lighting that complimented our all-white theme beautifully.
For the cocktail hour, awaiting staff promptly greeted wedding guests with signature mocktails, cocktails, and specialised hors d'oeuvres. The Mrs Wedding Planner team worked in tandem with the H Dubai's amazing onsite caterers to create this delicious cocktail hour. Our team used this opportunity to incorporate the bride and groom's wedding colors of blue and red in tasty drinks.
Food is a central focus of every wedding. Following a tasting session attended by the wedding couple several months ahead of the wedding date, our team using our expertise alongside the H Dubai's exclusive chefs developed an absolutely appetising menu that lent itself to the international palettes of this wedding's global guest list.
Our bespoke wedding cake designer went large and classic when designing this four-tier wedding cake, using only fresh red roses as an accent. The wedding cake frosting was kept white to contrast the red roses and the wedding couple had to use a saber to cut the wedding cake.
Our expert wedding photographer captured this fairytale moment as the wedding couple shared their first dance.
