Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah Set to Host First Celebrity Indian Wedding
Actor Mohit Marwah is marrying his long-time girlfriend Antara Motiwala in the peaceful Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah (RAK). The venue for the three-day wedding is Waldorf Astoria, and the high-profile celebrations are being planned by UAE/ Mumbai-based Milestones to Memories (MtoM).
Mohit Marwah and Antara Motiwala
Mohit Marwah is the son of Reena and Sandeep Marwah from New Delhi. Reena Marwah is the only sister of Bollywood actors Anil and Sanjay Kapoor, and producer Boney Kapoor – all of whom will be there at the celebrations. All eyes will also be on the groom’s cousin sister and soon-to-be bride Sonam Kapoor whose wedding is expected to take place at a secret destination in end-March or April (earlier the buzz was that it would be hosted in Jodhpur; now there are whispers that it may be held in New Delhi or at a secret destination in Asia or Europe).
Antara, a Bollywood stylist by profession, is the daughter of Bhavana Motiwala who is the elder sister of Tina Ambani. So this will be a grand celebration with Bollywood A-listers and business biggies including Karan Johar and Varun Dhawan alongside Anil and Tina Ambani. There are rumours that the Bachchans are expected to attend too.
The Marwah-Motiwala wedding will commence with a welcome dinner on February 18th. The afternoon mehndi will be held the following day on the hotel’s Cabana Lawns, followed by an evening sangeet at the Al Fayrouz Beach Front. The wedding ceremony will take place on February 20th, followed by the finale cocktails and dinner at the Al Fayrouz Poolside. The design & decor production for all the events is by Fete Events Dubai.

Luxury resort Waldorf Astoria tucked away in RAK is an ideal venue for a big Indian wedding. Several prominent business families, including Bangalore’s Mantri Builders, have hosted grand wedding celebrations at this resort which has a private white sand beach, 346 rooms, and spacious suites with pristine views of the Arabian shoreline.
The Mantri Builders family wedding was also orchestrated by the same team that is managing the Marwah-Motiwala wedding such as Aarti Manocha of M2M, and the design/ event production by Mallika Singh of Fete Events Dubai. Around 800 guests flew in from India for the Mantri Builders wedding, and were accommodated at the Waldorf Astoria and Hilton Al Hamra Beach & Golf Resort in RAK. The wedding ceremony, beach party and cricket match took place at the Waldorf Astoria. The sangeet was organized at the Bassata Desert Village which is a 30-minute drive from Waldorf Astoria, and the reception was hosted at the Al Hamra Golf Course.
