DUBAI: One wedding isn’t enough for the US-Iraqi beauty mogul Mona Kattan. The co-founder of Kayali fragrances celebrated a two-day ceremony with her businessman husband Hassan El-Amin in Dubai on Wednesday.
Following her intimate celebration at Dubai’s luxurious Raffles The Palm hotel on Tuesday, the couple’s second event was at the lavish Atlantis hotel in The Palm.
The bride, who is the sister of entrepreneur Huda Kattan, championed a Zuhair Murad gown that her sisters gifted her. It was a long-sleeved embellished number with a detached train.
Her second dress for the night was a figure-hugging sequined dress, which she wore with a sheer train decorated with feathers.
In a previous interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, Kattan spoke about how hard it was for her to pick her dream gown.
For her Katb El-Kitab ceremony, which took place on Feb. 22, 2022 — also known as Twosday — the social media star wore two gowns from Dubai-based label Esposa Couture.
“As soon as we got engaged, I went wedding dress shopping with my sisters, and they ended up gifting me the most magical Zuhair Murad dress,” she told the publication. “Then I went to Esposa to try on a whole bunch of dresses and found another one I loved.”
The couple had live performances to entertain the guests. Dubai-based singer and songwriter Hamdan Al-Abri, famous as ABRI, performed on both days of the wedding along with Noon Band.
On the second day, award-winning pianist Aleksandra Krstic, vocalist Bruno Fave and Dubai-based DJ Sonya entertained the audience.
Her makeup was done by two makeup artists: Hamda and Chloe Widera. “I had Hamda and Chloe tag team today to make the perfect look,” said Kattan in one of her stories.
