Simply Abu Dhabi XXXI

Weddingbliss Urban jungle vs Island butterflies B y L a u r a B r o w n F rom wedding vows at The Met to a sun- kissed Mediterranean ‘I do’, even a private English country affair or barefoot beach ceremony—we have seen it all and signed the guest registry. The designer dresses, the coiffured bouquets, wedding cakes (with tiers of vegan, vanilla and red velvet) and halal banquets, each to their own fancy and each with a sprinkle of romance and some fairy-tale bliss. We’ve located a few stunners of wedding locations, the out-of-the-way ones; those where Mother Nature is the guest of honour. Preston Court, Kent, UK S urrounded by rolling green meadows of the English countryside, this whimsical estate, including a gorgeous Kentish Barn and petite island in the pond, adds a little additional magic to a wedding day. The authentic experience will grant the nuptials to be sprinkled with stardust and enjoy the glistering lights surrounding the victorian carousel ride—a place to celebrate and be truly merry(-go-round).
