Sheikha Maryam bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the daughter of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, tied the knot after recently getting engaged to Sheikh Suhail bin Ahmed bin Juma Al Maktoum in December.

A grand wedding reception was held at Dubai's World Trade Centre on Wednesday, which was attended by Sheikh Mohammed, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, UAE royals and other dignitaries.

A wedding invitation card posted on Instagram in December hinted that the big day was round the corner.

Earlier in December 2017, news of the engagement broke as congratulatory posts by members of the Dubai royal family went viral.

'Congratulation to my cousin @maryam_mrm and @suhailbenahmedon their up coming wedding. May you find a lifetime of happiness in this union.'

Sheikh Mohammed's sister, Sheikha Fatima bint Rashid Al Maktoum, first took to Instagram to announce the royal engagement:
