Every step of the journey towards the big day is an undertaking for the Weddings Managers of the St. Regis Abu Dhabi Corniche; carving out genuine smiles and unmatched memories for the couple, their family and friends. Weddings Manager, Fatima El Guassir leads the team of wedding experts in ensuring a tailor-made wedding.
Having a natural knack for all things romantic, El Guassir began her journey in 2013 as the only Arabic female butler at the St. Regis Abu Dhabi. “I was chosen in every single wedding to assist the bride and the family with all of the wedding details, from the check in until the end of her day. This urged my passion for weddings, prompting me to go deeper into the wedding industry, to learn more about the wedding process from a hotelier perspective,” said Fatima El Guassir. The Moroccan-native eventually moved up to specialize in the planning and catering aspect of weddings for the hotel.

El Guassir also highlights the essence of Arabian weddings in the hotels line of expertise. She said, “For Arabic weddings, a customary Zaffa is performed by the grand stairs before the ceremony. We also offer separate banquets for male and female guests for traditional weddings. The female ballroom sare particularly equipped with private entrances for the bride, offering total privacy for the ladies.”
