Keeping in mind the vibe of the event, life-sized games like Snook Ball, Mega Jenga, Giant Twister and Beer Pong were organized. Masseuses were also present for those looking for some relaxation.

While DJ Teri Miko & DJ Shadow did their magic with the music, bar girls served shots to keep the spirits high!

Lovely hand mist fans and hats made for the perfect giveaways.

The Arabian Sangeet- Al-Maha Luxury Desert Resort & Spa

Complete with Reds, Purples and gorgeous Golds, this spectacular Sangeet showcased Arabic tents, a bar with a tree of Moroccan lanterns and so much more!


The walkway had a Handpan drummer, a sand bottle artiste, a calligraphy artiste, a falcon, a camel, a tamarind juice server and a coffee and dates server.

The entertainment was conceptualized like a Broadway show, with a Bedouin artiste, as the narrator of a love tale with Arabic acts and family performances interspersed within it. The enchanting Arabic acts were a vast array of belly dancers, tannoura dancers, fire and pixel poi artistes along with dancers dressed like desert animals.  The arena then transformed into one with lasers as the DJs took over.

However, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan totally stole the show with a mind-blowing performance.

The Tel Baan at Amalfi Pool at the Hotel Palazzo Versace featured a gorgeous couple gazebo dressed in pastel hues.

The Baraat had the groom come in with style in a Porsche accompanied by dholwalas and DJ Shadow.
