Daniela and Kader's Beautiful Dubai Wedding Day
“We had a Romantic Wedding at Fairmont The Palm”
Congratulations on your wedding! What made you decide on having your wedding with us at Fairmont?
We were looking for a property with a beach front and stunning views and Fairmont The Palm seemed to have everything that we were looking for. We enjoyed the hospitality extended to us by the team at the hotel.
Where did you have your ceremony?
We had our wedding ceremony and the wedding reception at the Seaview Garden. The seaview garden was the perfect location for us to take beautiful pictures.
Tell us about the flowers you chose. Did you go traditional or contemporary?
We decided to go for traditional white flowers. The center pieces of white flowers that the Banqueting team arranged for during our wedding reception looked amazing.
Tell us about the meal you served your guests. What type and flavor cake did you have at your reception?
The chefs at Fairmont The Palm did a commendable work of entertaining our invited guests with international delicacies. We had a two layered white frosting cake with a rich creamy texture for our wedding reception.
What element(s) did you add to make the wedding uniquely 'yours'?
We wanted to have a simple romantic outdoor wedding. The stunning backdrop of the Marina skyline added that lovely touch and it looks incredible in our wedding photographs.
Another integral part of the day is the wedding dress! Tell us about what you chose to wear.
I was lucky enough to have a friend who also happened to be a bridal dress designer and she designed my wedding dress which was stitched in Prague and shipped over to Dubai.
What was the first song you danced to as newlyweds?
We danced to the tunes of Eric Clapton's song, 'Wonderful tonight.'
Now that you are married and have had time to reflect on your wedding day, what was your favorite moment?
It would be very hard for me to express my favourite moment as every single moment was precious. However, to specifically name a few would be meeting all our family members together, walking through the aisle, looking at the stunning city skyline and a big smile from my husband to be.
What made you decide to have a destination wedding?
My husband is Emirati hence the decision for having our wedding in Dubai.
How did you plan your day from afar?
We were based in Dubai and hence the organization and wedding arrangements were all done locally.
Tell us about what it is like traveling with your dress!
It is stressful and exciting all at the same time.
Do you have any advice for brides planning on having a destination wedding?
Its truly the most incredible moment in your life – create the best memories, enjoy the company of others and place your wedding planning into professional hands from the very beginning.
Vendors & Service Providers:
The conference services team at Fairmont The Palm were the best wedding planners that we could have asked for. They organized our wedding well without any glitters.
