An Afghan and Lebanese Wedding At Doltone House


It was clear that Tina and Hussam’s wedding was going to be absolutely extravagant from the moment he popped the question.

“After a 5 course dinner and a sommelier who paired a glass of champagne with every plate, we headed down to a gorgeous set up on the beach of Abu Dhabi’s Shangri La Qaryat Al Beri. Here, he surprised me with the most beautiful ring, and I said yes!”

Their wedding was a wonderful celebration of the unification of two cultures. Held at the Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf, the party was styled to create a classic romantic theme.

“The flowers were white and pink, and accompanied by lush green foliage. Over the bridal party table there hung three beautiful chandeliers, which lit up the entire venue.”

“The bridal party entered the reception to the beat of Lebanese drums before guests sat down for a five-course customised menu.”

With a round of emotional speeches, including a funny best man speech and a number of Afghan traditions like the Attan dance, the entire day couldn’t have been a more perfect mixture of traditions.
