The rulers of the Emirates gathered in Dubai to celebrate the marriage of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid's daughter to a member of Abu Dhabi's royal family.

The Vice President and Ruler of Dubai welcomed the leaders for a reception to celebrate the union of Sheikha Maryam bint Mohammed to Khalid bin Mohammed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan.

A dancing troupe performed the ayala while Emrati music played.

The pair’s engagement was first announced on social media on August 24, 2018. The couple signed their marriage contract about a week ago but the men's reception was held at Dubai World Trade Centre at the weekend. It is unclear when the women's party was held but friends and members of the royal families shared pictures and videos from the reception on social media on Saturday.

Sheikh Khalid is a member of the Abu Dhabi royal family. He graduated from British Royal Academy Sandhurst in the UK and was awarded the Major General Diwan Misri Chand Platoon Award for demonstrating outstanding innovation and purpose during the training course.
