Laura and Craig say 'I do' in Dubai

hellomagazine.com When Laura and Craig McConnon met six-and-a-half years ago at a friend's wedding, it was love at first sight.

They only spent three months dating before deciding to move in together and have been a couple ever since.

Craig proposed in Dubai and the pair loved the place so much they chose to hold their wedding there as well.

They were married at The Ritz-Carlton, Jumeirah Beach, Dubai, in March and 78 of the couple's friends and family travelled to the Middle-East city to be part of the special day.

A priest married Craig and Laura in the traditional way, but they also decided to add a little fun to the ceremony with some great music.

Laura walked down the aisle to the song All You Need Is Love from the film Love Actually (one of her favourites) and once married, the newlyweds left to the sound of Love Shack by The B-52s.

Adding to the fun, Damien O'Brien, a magician and hypnotist from London, entertained guests at the reception.

The celebration also included an adult candy bar station, bean bags and shishas, as well as a live cooking station for everyone to enjoy.
