Video, pictures: UAE rulers celebrate Dubai's royal wedding reception
Oh, we do love a royal wedding…
While many of us were celebrating the public holidays for Eid Al Fitr this week, Dubai’s royal family were celebrating the wedding reception of the three sons of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The three groomsmen included Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, the Crown Prince of Dubai and his two brothers Sheikh Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, and Sheikh Ahmed, chairman of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation.
The young royals all got married in an Islamic wedding which took place last month on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, but the official wedding ceremony was held on Thursday, June 6, 2019, at the Dubai World Trade Center.
An exclusive list of VIPs were on the guestlist including HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and rulers of the other UAE emirates.
Thousands of guests also flew in from around the world to help celebrate the wedding ceremony after a (delicious) wedding invitation was sent out during the last week of May last month.
An official video released by the Dubai Media Office can be viewed below:
