Wedding venue: The St. Regis Abu Dhabi

Striking that all-important balance between grandeur and intimacy, The St. Regis Abu Dhabi is the capital’s ultimate luxury wedding venue – all gilded staircases and panoramic sea views paired with impeccable, discreet service.

THE CEREMONY

Exchange vows overlooking the Arabian Gulf on the beachfront lawns, which can host up to 300, and allows guests to duck back to the hotel via an air-conditioned marble tunnel. 

THE RECEPTION

Dreaming of a grandiose, fairytale-style wedding? The Al Mudhaif Ballroom, with its six-metre-high ceilings hung with Bohemian-crystal chandeliers, is everything you’ve imagined. Accessed via the lobby with two additional private entrances, the 1,311-square-metre ballroom can comfortably accommodate 700 for seated banquets and up to 1,000 for receptions, or be divided into three rooms for more intimate celebrations. The adjacent Al Mudhaif Suite is a tranquil retreat for the couple to catch a few moments’ peace before their
big entrance as man and wife.  

THE SERVICE

The outstanding staff will pull out all the stops to make the entire experience seem effortless, with a complimentary five-tier wedding cake and a one-night stay in a suite with honeymoon amenities and butler service among the inclusions. Speaking of butlers, a dedicated female wedding butler will put ladies at ease, while newlyweds can travel in style with Bentley transfers to the airport. Planning a summer soirée? St. Regis’s summertime wedding offering includes a complimentary pre-wedding gathering for up to 15 guests with afternoon tea and a signature suite for a two-hour photoshoot.

THE SUITE

With jaw-dropping Gulf views, the 49th-floor Al Hosen Suite is ideal for extended stays with a master suite, study, majlis, dining room, and even a private spa. 

WE LOVE 

Spoil the girls with Remède Spa’s ‘Wedding Party Wellness’, a three-hour package dedicated to the bride and her bridesmaids with customised treatments followed by a light lunch.
