Wedding Venue Spotlight | Q&A with Bab Al Qasr

Located in Abu Dhabi on the stunning corniche you’ll find the heavenly Bab Al Qasr.  It’s well known for its iconic  Arabian architecture and amazing 5* service and is a must to check out!  It has all you need for your dream wedding whether it’s a grand occasion in their Al Dana ballroom or a smaller reception in one of the other event spaces they have something to suit you.  Come on girls let’s take a look!

We were delighted to catch up with the Bab Al Qasr Events Team to give us more insight on this perfect Abu Dhabi wedding venue.


Why are weddings so special at Bab Al Qasr? Since the Bab Al Qasr opened, just under 2 years ago, all the weddings we have been privileged to be a part of, have been totally unique and I think that’s why they’re so special! Whether it’s a lavish wedding in the spacious ballroom with an authentic Arabic ambiance or a smaller more intimate affair outside on our lawns or in one of our smaller meeting rooms – they’re all so special!

Are there venues in Bab Al Qasr to suit every couple? Yes!  I love that first meeting with the couple, finding out what type of wedding the they are after and their ideas for themes, colours and how they would like the various spaces dressed.  We would then take a tour of the hotel to show them the different areas and most of our brides are completely awestruck by our lavish ballroom and our large pre-function areaWe have a number of lovely table linens, crockery and glassware to show them too.   Having your reception outside in our beach garden is just fantastic as brides can have our iconic copper building or the beautiful sea as the backdrop to their photos.

Which venue is the most popular for weddings? Our Al Dana ballroom is the most popular venue at the moment especially during these hot summer months.  The brides just love the high ceilings and the palatial interior which makes them feel like a princess!

How do you help a couple create a perfect wedding? Firstly my team always listens to the brides and do their very best to make sure she gets everything on her wish list.  We can also make it as easy as possible for them by planning the wedding from A to Z.  We can help find photographers, hair stylists, decorations and we are there to advise on all her wedding arrangements.

Describe your ballroom? Our ballroom can hold up to 300 guests with a stage  and is simply stunning!  For a day-time celebration the natural sunlight coming through the Arabic Mashrabiya is perfect.  The ceilings are high and we have some gorgeous vintage chandeliers. Adjacent to the ballroom, we have the bridal Suite which is connected to the ballroom for the ultimate privacy.

What additional wedding services do you offer? Our team are very experienced and we have a great list of preferred suppliers that can do DJ services, dance floors, unique flower arrangements, special custom table set ups and we can make you a personalized wedding cake.

What is your chef’s specialty for weddings catering?  The head chef is incredibly skilled and he has great chefs working for him.  He has a number of example menus to tantalizer your taste buds but he can pretty much make anything you want but his specialty would have to be his marvelous wedding cakes.

Can you sum up weddings at Bab Al Qasr in a few words? The dream location for your special occasion!
