Dubai impresses with scintillating views, warm hospitality and incredible settings for your big day. There's no better place to begin a lifetime together.


Dubai Opera


The stunning Dubai Opera has the ability to transform its proscenium arch theatre into a banquet hall, making it the perfect venue for a spectacular wedding celebration. Expect state-of-the-art equipment, surround sound and world-class hospitality at one of Dubai’s most sought-after locations. Feel free to invite all your loved ones, as the venue hosts up to 1,000 guests in a banquet-setting and up to 2,000 guests for a concert-style celebration.


Madinat Jumeirah

With no less than seven picturesque venues, absolutely anything you imagine can be recreated at Madinat Jumeirah’s diverse and unique locations. No two weddings can ever be the same here. Say ‘I do’ under the open skies to the sweet sound of waves by the beach or organise a traditional ceremony on an elevated walkway for waterside vistas. To end your day in style, host a reception at the ornate ballroom in the grand Madinat Arena.

Atlantis, The Palm


If your venue vision points to luxury, Atlantis, The Palm should definitely be on the top of your list. Exchange vows on the Royal Terrace while enjoying traditional Arabian hospitality, or take the quirky route with 65,000 marine animals in the backdrop at The Lost Chambers. If you're tying the knot in winter, consider an outdoor wedding with poolside views or go all out with a celebration right on Atlantis' pristine beach.


One&Only Royal Mirage

Make a dramatic entrance to your wedding at the One&Only Royal Mirage. The fortress at this plush wedding venue has imposing Moorish wood doors that lead to an enchanting space lined with illuminated palm trees. If you fancy an even more palatial setting, head to the Esplanade for landscapes around a stunning water feature, complete with myriad candles and a private dining area. No matter where you exchange your vows, the scintillating views and beautiful arrangements will make for memorable photos.
