Burj Al Arab: Janaina and Imran's Extravagant, Fairytale Wedding


From love at first sight, to a ‘white dream’ wedding day at Burj Al Arab, surrounded by imported blooms, Janaina and Imran’s wedding day was an opulent celebration which celebrated both the bride’s Brazilian culture and the groom’s Pakistani heritage.

Wedding planner and designer Jardel Silvia, CEO of Eventchic Designs wanted Janiana and Imran’s wedding to showcase the couple’s personalities as well as creating an enchanting setting. The myriad of eye-catching blooms, covering the space, reflected the couples elegant style and glamorous lifestyle.

The reception area was coated, floor to ceiling in the imported flowers to create a botanical tunnel which extended into a seven metre catwalk, for the brides dramatic entrance.

The Venue

“Baby, wouldn’t it be amazing to one day get married at Burj Al Arab.” – Janaina

Early in their relationship the bride had mentioned her desire to get married at the opulent venue and, after getting down on one knee with a Tiffany’s engagement ring, Imran made her dreams of a celebration there a reality.
Layered in snow-white flowers imported from Holland, the already iconic venue created a fairy-tale setting for the bride and groom’s special day.

The Dress

The impeccable detailing of the wedding doesn’t end with the venue. Janaina’s custom couture gown from Elie Saab was engraved with the couple’s wedding date; other engraved touches included each guest receiving their own IPad also detailing the wedding date and pre-saved images of the celebrations.
To add to this stunning, one-of-a-kind gown, Janaina wore Cartier jewellery and was followed down the aisle by a dramatic, three metre train and bridesmaids wearing Zuhair Murad.

The Suits

Waiting at the end of the aisle for his bride-to-be, the groom wore a custom suit from Tom Ford, accessorised with a diamond-studded Patek Phillipe watch.  At his side his groomsmen also wore Tom Ford creations.

After the ceremony, the wedding guests enjoyed music by UK 80’s band Fortune who were flown in for the event and a fireworks display at the Marina Gardens over a Champagne toast.
