world luxury | DAILY | Issue 44 |

GETTING THERE The main airline, Emirates have daily flights from most destinations around the world. There are a number of other international carriers that you can choose for your trip. Most European citizens, as well as US, Canadian and Australian don’t require a UAE entry visa. For other countries it is easy to obtain a visa within just few days of submiing the application with an airline or hotel. LEGAL REQUIREMENTS FOR GETTING MARRIED IN DUBAI AND THE UAE The UAE offers several options for geing married but depending on your nationality and residency status, geing married in Dubai can range from straightforward to time consuming and complicated. Certain conditions must be met and there is a strict procedure and timeline in which paperwork must be submied. However, if you are unable to meet the legal requirements, a popular option is to legally marry in your home country and then celebrate your wedding in Dubai with a symbolic ceremony or blessing.

|8|

OvERvIEW • At least one of the parties must have UAE residency to legally marry in the Emirates. • There is a set procedure and paperwork for Islamic marriages which differs from nonIslamic marriages. • The procedure and paperwork for non-Islamic marriage’s varies depending on nationality. • Residents can get married at the Dubai Court or Abu Dhabi Judiciary. • Non-Muslims may not marry in the Dubai Court • Marriage of non-Muslim residents may only happen in their embassy (if allowed), church, temple etc. • Certain countries allow their citizens to get married at their embassy, and even accept one party to be from a different nationality.

DUBAI WEDDINGS DUBAI WEDDING vENUES When geing married in Dubai, or indeed any of the Emirates you need to keep in mind the strict alcohol licencing laws. These laws are just one of the reasons why ninety nine percent of couples choose to celebrate their wedding with a hotel ballroom evening reception. With an abundance of luxury five star hotels, all offering excellent services and fantastic sceneries, it is difficult to suggest one specific venue. However, when choosing your reception venue my advice would be to think about the type of atmosphere and experience you would like for your wedding in Dubai and try to match this with the venue seing. DUBAI WEDDING SETTINGS Popular wedding seings and venue choices include geing married at: • One of the many beach resorts • Downtown hotels, where you can have a full view of Burj Khalifa and singing fountain • A desert resort in a traditional Bedouin camp for a unique and exotic wedding • Other wedding venue options include the golf or polo club, or even on Abu Dhabi’s Nurai Island, a five star private island, recently voted by Conde Nast Travel Magazine as one of the most incredible private islands. It is important to note that all of the above venue options are allowed to serve alcohol. Although less common, it is also possible to organise a wedding in a private villa or yacht.

A GUIDE TO INTIMATE WEDDING CELEBRATIONS IN DUBAI Mary Gostelow suggests ten memorable luxury hotel venues for intimate wedding celebrations, maximum 20 – these are all perfect for under-the-radar events, for second or repeat weddings, or for couples who simply do not like crowds. Note that actual wedding ceremonies in Dubai must be held in a church, and generally only residents can be thus married. Here, in alphabetical order, are suggestions for blessings and celebrations

Atlantis The Palm Atlantis Palm Jumeirah's 9,500 sq  Bridge Suite is actually big enough for a celebration for 200, but its Wilson interiors are so elegant it can still feel intimate – simply hang out in the main salon, with eight pineapple columns reaching up to the 20- ceiling, and a grand piano, and terraces. Have a seated dinner, though there are only 16 turquoise and gold chairs. There are three bedrooms, so your closest familyfriends can join you for a wedding breakfast, ideally Bollinger à la Côte aux Enfants 2009 skilfully opened by one of the world's best butlers, Lana Gorohova.

Burj Al Arab Burj Al Arab does have a cantilevered 28th floor helicopter landing pad and though Tiger Woods was once allowed to practise golf up there, real-play wedding blessings are, sorry, not allowed. Instead, opt for the truly magnificent 8,000 sq , two-floor Royal Suite 2502. It is a kaleidoscope of brilliant sunflower, gentian and scarlet colours so all the bride needs is a white dress, and white flowers, to look a dream.  The 21-stair staircase, with leopardskin carpet and elaborate gold banisters, is perfect for awe-inspiring photographs.

Desert Palm by PER AQUUM Desert Palm by PER AQUUM is perfect for polocentric nuptial celebrations – the Small Luxury Hotel of the World is in the 150-acre Dubai polo complex, and if the couple or others get bored they can wander around four polo fields, and stables that magnificently house up to 300 ponies during the September-March high season. The Green Verandah, overlooking Polo Field 1, is the most popular venue, and have the meal catered by private dining, right there (the menu includes suitable polo food, say a maple syruproasted 300g rib eye per person, with a giant pistachio oreo baked cheesecake replacing the traditional white-iced fruit cake).

Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre bends over backwards to be accommodating (this is an anywhere, any time hotel). As long as it is between main meal times, say late aernoon or early evening, have your 'do' in Michael Miner's Firebird Diner. You will have a 360-degree backdrop of Adam Tihany design, including real ends of cars protruding from the restaurant's walls, and there is a working 1950s jukebox which saves you having to fork out for music.

Since you will need to move on, to allow diners back into the space, order-up the famous Mina burgers to eat in the rooop Lunar Bar, quenched with the house Veuve Clicquot, and finish with Montecristos in the Churchill Cigar Bar.

Jebel Ali Hotel Jebel Ali Hotel is a venue for sports enthusiasts – tear yourself away from the fishing and shooting club, or the four football fields, or the nine-hole, par-36 golf, or even the beach, in time to get dressed up. You have sensibly taken the 1,110 sq  suite 990 on the top floor of the resort's Palm Tree Court hotel – it has two bedrooms, one of which could be used for storing the wedding dress before the event, and a big terrace for all your guests (the suite comes with all kinds of perks, including drinks in the Clipper Bar and complimentary massages).

One of the many pluses here is that Jebel Ali has a creche, professionally managed by Worldwide Kids Co out of London, so you do not need to worry about toddlers trying to divert aention during the event.

Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates, and the adjacent Ski Dubai, offer a celebration venue unlike any other in the entire Middle East – on snow. Stay in the three-bedroom Aspen Suite, which looks exactly like a real Colorado ski chalet. Rooms are on three floors, two of which look straight into Ski Dubai's amazing indoor Snow World, with its three, 1,300- parallel ski runs.

Dress in suitable snow gear if you want Ski Dubai to arrange something outside, but if you prefer not to get cold, simply have the event in your living room, which would easily hold 20, and have a backdrop of skiers outside while yum-umming over a wedding cake of cupcakes from Hummingbird Bakery, in the Mall.

Go on to mani- and pedi-cures from the fabulous Bastien Gonzalez, the best beauty podiatrist in the world, and then, with the necessary hair-dos and puing on of the required togs, you are all ready for the ceremony. This should be on the beach, with food by Yannick Alléno, and once it is all over, take the resort's shule boat six-minutes across to the sister One&Only for a game of outside chess.

Park Hya Dubai Park Hya Dubai offers rural space with sophistication. The ideal wedding celebration would be early evening, in the Palm Garden, close to one of the inlets of the multi-sided main pool (swimmers would have le by then). While dressing, calm lastminute nerves with Dom Pérignon in a creek-facing room, say 1408, to watch the sunset.  Aer the ceremony, walk two hundred yards to the Yacht Club, literally siing in the creek, for your party at the Cielo rooop bar and lounge. Tomorrow, start your honeymoon by flying off in a seaplane from directly outside the hotel.

Raffles Dubai Raffles Dubai offers a chance to show internationalism – its outside pool has an Egyptian clock and columns, and Roman leering. It also has several perfect places, in between the columns, for a happy couple and their supporters. This is obviously a chance to dress Cleopatra-style, and the hotel's Hush salon can do the hair-style appropriately. Party poolside, by the way, as the hotel does not allow DJs or parties in its four top suites, each named for an element.

But when it is all over, lingering memories will be Egyptian: the statement lobby includes five bulbous, ceiling-high Egyptian columns and as your guests go down the 12 steps to the hotel limos (silver Range Rovers) they will look back up at the ziggurat-shaped building.

Madinat Jumeirah Madinat Jumeirah's premium bijou wedding celebration venue is undoubtedly Pierchic, the restaurant-on-stilts reached by a 500-foot boardwalk walkway from the shore. Manager Tim Bode can make this entire complex into yours, for the event.  Start with sunset cocktails at the bar cantilevered over the water halfway along the boardwalk, continue, by foot or decorated buggy, to the restaurant, for the ceremony and dinner. When the party is over, travel by abra electric water taxi to the resort's Dar Masyaf, where you have sensibly taken one of the 29 traditional round-courtyard summer houses, its suite for the happy couple, its ten rooms for guests.
