This Royal Persian Wedding was an amazing event at the luxurious Raffles Palace on the Palm Jumeirah – Dubai. The couple was celebrated by a large group of friends and family who flew in from around the world to be a part of the Iranian Wedding Celebrations.
Rahul Kumar, the CEO of Vivaah Celebrations along with Maggi Kewlani and the entire team of Vivaah Celebrations successfully planned, managed and delivered this lovely Iranian Wedding. This marks the foray of Vivaah Celebrations as Iranian Wedding Planners in Dubai.
Vivaah Celebrations fulfilled the couple’s dreams through conceptualizing eloquent themes, artists, unique performers, immersive experiences and much more to keep the audience enthralled. The Wedding Celebrations had a personal touch to offer each guest a memorable experience that they could cherish and remember for a long time to come. Every detail of the wedding celebration was essential and tailored to the tastes and preferences of our lovely couple.
At the opulent Palazzo Versace, we hosted a Welcome Dinner for our guests on the first evening. Guests were greeted as royalty as soon as they arrived at the breathtaking Palazzo Versace by a scintillating performance put up by an Award-winning international pianist. As the evening progressed, hostesses led the guests to Enigma, a renowned Iranian fine dining experience, where they all enjoyed wine and dinner with Persian music and elegant dances as the evening continued.
The following morning, all guests woke up to a royal breakfast at Raffles Palm before they got ready for the traditional Persian Sofreh Aghd ceremony.
The ceremony took place on the lawns of Raffles Palm facing the serene waters with the beautiful palace sitting as the backdrop of the venue. In the midst of the venue stood a gorgeous dome made of pure exquisite crystals where elements and accessories of the Sofreh Aghd were kept for the rituals. Items such as rose petals, pistachios, saffron, crystal candles, mirrors, sugar cones and much more with its own symbolic meaning was adorned in the dome. This was by far, one of the most gorgeous Sofreh Aghd ceremony in Dubai which was planned by the team at Vivaah Celebrations.
As the sunset golden hour begins, our gorgeous violinist welcomed the guests with her soft music as they had their refreshments and rich delicacies catered specially from Ladurée. Once the guests settled down, the toastmaster thanked everyone for being a part of such an important day in the couple’s life. As the violinist played her beautiful tunes, the couple entered the venue with their bridesmaids, groomsmen and adorable flower girls.
The commemorative Sofreh Aghd Ceremony is a ceremony dating back thousands of years to ancient Persia. The bride and groom sat in front of a Sofreh which is a symbolic wedding spread representing love, prosperity health and fertility. During the blessing ceremony, the wedding party held a traditional silk cloth over the head of the couple and grinded sugar cones together symbolizing sweet blessings raining down on the bride and groom. The magnificent ceremony then came to an end after the couple said their vows, exchanged rings and sealed it with a kiss.
On the third day, the guests got ready for the Royal Persian Reception Evening which took place at the Raffles Ballroom. Team Vivaah Celebrations was at work with the decor and production overnight to ensure all details were attended to as planned. The ballroom was decked up with beautiful grand blush floral installations, overhead decor concepts above the dance floor and gorgeous centerpieces cascading down from the tables adorned with candles. It was like walking into a fairy-tale.
Each plate had the guest’s name on it beautifully placed for them along with the royal dinner menu. Accompanied was a customized luxurious wedding favour that was gifted to all guests in the form of a ceramic pomegranate with customized love poems to take back with them as a momento.
The guests entered the stunning ballroom as the gates to the venue opened and they all settled in while waiting for the couple’s fairy-tale entry. The newly married couple entered with the gorgeous saxophonist leading them and they commemorated the evening by popping open a bottle of premium champagne and poured it down a tall elegant champagne tower followed by the magical first dance. The sight was definitely unreal. This was followed by a Four-Course Imperial Dinner with guests conversing as the saxophonist played her delightful music. The cake cutting ceremony took place before soon after followed by an engaging session on the dance floor with the bride’s sister performing the traditional Persian Knife dance. The cake cutting ceremony then took place followed by an unforgettable high-energy performance by a band flown in specially from Iran. They kickstarted the party and kept everyone on the dance floor till the early hours of sunrise.
