You’ve met your prince charming, now it’s time to marry him in a palace. The five-star centrepiece of The Old Town Island in Downtown Dubai is a glamorous setting for the fairy tale wedding of your dreams. 


With a backdrop of Burj Khalifa and the mesmerising dancing fountain on Burj Lake, the panoramic Viewing Deck is just the place for an ‘only in Dubai’ ceremony that can be followed by a joyous bubbly toast with space for up to 200 friends and family.


Have your heart set on an al fresco setting? There are few places more enchanting than The Pool Area, with illuminated palm trees and Arabian tents creating a magical atmosphere for up to 500 guests. For a once in a lifetime experience, the grandeur of the Royale Ballroom also impresses; comfortably accommodating receptions and banquets for up to 300 guests, it has a large pre-function area, an outdoor balcony overlooking The Old Town and, better still, has doors situated near the hotel’s entrance, allowing for a dramatic arrival in a classic car or even a horse-drawn chariot.  


From the initial planning stages right through to the finish, expert wedding planners ensure a customised, stress-free experience, from designing the perfect menu and table décor to florist consultations. Along with a luxurious night’s stay, there are six wedding packages with a variety of inclusions from a beautiful wedding cake designed by talented pastry chefs and complimentary valet service to make all guests feel special, and spa treatments for the bride-to-be. 


Elegantly appointed with subtle Arabian décor, the Palace Fountain Rooms offer much-needed ambiance for preparations, and free entertainment too, in the form of front-row seats to the spectacular The Dubai Fountain show from the balcony. 


The hotel can fit a clear acrylic cover over the pool, transforming it into an illuminated surface for guests to walk on, and creating an unforgettable setting for your first dance as bride and groom.
