This stunning Dubai wedding just won an international award

A stunning 3-day luxurious Indian wedding in Dubai has just won the 'Wedding Concept award' at the 'Belief Awards' (an international contest for wedding planners,) and if you’re looking for wedding inspo, look no further…

Shaun, 26 from California, and Prerna, 24 from Dubai, wed back in winter 2019 at a stunning ceremony in Dubai. The couple are originally of Indian descent, and the wedding was celebrated with Indian rituals and traditions. The 3-day celebration started with a Welcome Dinner and Afterparty, followed by Mehendi Afternoon and Sangeet Evening on the second and finally the wedding ceremony and reception evening on the third day. The event was organised by Rahul Kumar and Arun Bablani at Vivaah Weddings and was photographed by House on Clouds.

The whole wedding didn’t go totally to plan however, just a month before the wedding the family had a disagreement with the production and décor team and cancelled the contract. They found a completely new team and put together the whole magical event in just a month!! Rihanna works hard but Rahul and Arun work harder!!

The weather was bright with a lot of sunshine and the evenings were the perfect temperature to enjoy outdoors, the perfect wedding weather! Over 400 guests from all over the world attended the wedding and it was held at the massive hospitality complex of Habtoor City with guests hosted at Habtoor Palace. The events of the three day extravaganza were spread across venues at Hilton, V Hotel and Habtoor Palace. There was henna, traditional dancing, the Mandap, and vows. The venue was lavishly decorated and a grand feast organised from the guests, followed by a host of entertainment shows and speeches by family and friends. Not forgetting the DJ that spins into the early hours!

It wasn’t just the wedding that was magical either, the proposal was pretty spectacular! Prerna is a film director and received a phone call to direct a TV commercial in LA. The production company told Prerna that they needed a male actor and suggested Shaun join the commercial. A week later, they began filming and whilst shooting the last scene, Shaun got down on one knee and proposed. The whole commercial was a plan!!

A real life fairy tale wedding!
