The Ball­rooms

Emirates Bride - - WEDDING VENUES -

DUBAI 1. Palazzo Ver­sace

Rem­i­nis­cent of a 16th cen­tury Ital­ian Palace, Palazzo Ver­sace Dubai is a neo­clas­si­cal mas­ter­piece with sub­tle traces of Ara­bian ar­chi­tec­ture. The five-star prop­erty pro­vides per­son­alised flo­ral ar­range­ments, a ded­i­cated wed­ding plan­ner, cus­tomised wed­ding cake de­signs and pho­tog­ra­phy ser­vices – all man­aged and ex­e­cuted by an in-house army of wed­ding ex­perts. Im­mersed in Ital­ian el­e­gance, the gala ball­room can host a wed­ding party of up to 500 and de­liv­ers all mod­ern ameni­ties imag­in­able.

HY­DER­ABAD 2. Taj Falaknuma Palace

Perched 2,000 feet above the city of Hy­der­abad is the for­mer palace of the Nizam, ru­moured to be the rich­est man in the world at one time. The

painstak­ingly re­stored Taj Falaknuma Palace, built in 1894, is an en­chant­ing hide­out that ex­udes ro­mance and grandeur. Ar­rive at the venue in a horse-drawn car­riage where ush­ers and palace but­lers greet and wel­come you to the spawl­ing 32-acre wide prop­erty. Her High­ness Princess Esra, the Nizam’s Turk­ish wife, de­signed the 60 rooms and suites, beau­ti­fully re­fur­bished and re­stored to mod­ern per­fec­tion. Each pro­vides mar­vel­lous views of the palace court­yard and the 400-year-old city of Hy­der­abad. With myr­iad fine din­ing op­tions, the award-win­ning Jiva Spa and var­i­ous as­sorted gar­dens and ter­races to host cer­e­mo­nial meet­ings, the stun­ning Dur­bar Hall takes the cake. The mas­sive 101-seater din­ing hall be­decked with Bel­gian chan­de­liers, lends royal deca­dence to cel­e­bra­tory events like no other.
