DUBAI – Nine Chinese couples tied the knot in Dubai’s Love Lakes in a first-of-its-kind mass wedding at the romantic venue in the Al Qudra desert.
The group wedding was hosted by Hala China, a joint initiative by Meraas and Dubai Holding last Thursday as a show of international tolerance, love and respect.
The glamorous knot-tying occasion saw the serene lakes near Al Qudra transformed into a picturesque landscape for the culturally curious couples who wanted to hold their wedding ceremony amid the sprawling tranquillity of Dubai’s undulating sand dunes.
The ceremony marked the first time the islands have been used for an exclusive private event, and it was carried off in typically spectacular Dubai fashion, with the nine bridal dresses fluttering in the desert breeze as an expression of unbridled marital joy.
The brides’ dresses were designed, tailored and put together by JUSERE, China’s leading wedding and evening dress company headquartered in Suzhou.
Hala China, which aims to promote cultural, trade and tourism ties between the UAE and China, made the occasion possible by seeking out the adventurous 18 Chinese residents and visitors who were looking to hold their wedding day in a unique setting.
Held during the UAE’s Year of Tolerance, the group marriage is another sign of the nation’s commitment to celebrating different cultures, offering a place where people from all over the world can feel at home. GAD/Expat Media
