Set in a lavish garden with the iconic Egyptian Museum as its dramatic backdrop, The Nile Ritz-Carlton, Cairo created the talk-of-the-town wedding.

The newlyweds are greeted with applause as they step down from their 3-meter-high, custom-made stage.

Dr. Nader El Biblawi, Egypt’s tourism leader, saw no better place to host the wedding of his beloved daughter but the city’s jewel, The Nile Ritz-Carlton, Cairo. “I am confident that at The Ritz-Carlton, the finest services will be delivered. Going out of their way to please you is their act of norm,” said El Biblawi to his daughter.

The majestic wedding took three days of setup. The hotel’s Executive Chef carefully designed the menus and a wedding cake that stood two meters high. The hotel’s management decided to have the florist flower the lobby with matching colors of the flowers used in the wedding to announce the happy event. The Director of Catering was available around the clock inspecting every aspect of the wedding from bartender coordination to rooms’ allocation for the international guests coming to witness the one-of-a-kind celebration.

Malak and Mina exchange smiles during their first dance.

“Everything went smoothly and beyond our expectations. Every time we visited to discuss our wedding menu or ballroom setup, we were greeted in person by the General Manager and the Director of Sales & Marketing. We really felt that they cared and it is not just their job. They would go 100 miles extra to make sure that we were happy and satisfied,” the bride commented.

The groom added: “We were pampered; they opened the restaurant for my best men to get together until the dawn.”
