Congratulations are in order for one member of Dubai’s royal family, who celebrated her wedding this week.
HH Sheikha Maryam bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, daughter of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, tied the knot with Sheikh Suhail bin Ahmed bin Juma Al Maktoum in a ceremony on Wednesday, it has been revealed.
The couple wed at at the Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai Media Office confirmed, with many royals in attendance.
Among those at the reception was HH Sheikh Mohammed, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai—who added father of the bride to his list of titles on the day.
The royal was captured exchanging heartfelt greeting with wedding guests in a short video shared on his YouTube account.
Sheikh Mohammed was also filmed sitting next to his new son-in-law, as the pair chatted with guests including HH Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras al-Khaimah, and HH Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Sharjah.

HH Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown Prince of Ajman, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Crown Prince of Fujairah, H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Crown Prince of Ras al-Khaimah, were also among the royals at the wedding.
Sheikha Maryam and Sheikh Suhail announced their engagement last month, with members of the royal family sharing their congratulations across social media as the news broke.
A logo was also created to celebrate the occasion, intertwining the names of the happy couple.
Sheikha Maryam, who is a keen equestrian (much like her father), has not publicly commented on her nuptials.
She made headlines earlier this year after photographs and clips showing the royal, along with her sister, HH Sheikha Maitha bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, riding horses through the waves of Jumeirah Beach.
