Dubai's iconic Burj Al Arab hotel is set to stage weddings on its helipad, perched 695ft (211.84m) above the Arabian Gulf.

The sail-shaped hotel, which sits on its own island off the coast of Dubai is offering the unusual wedding package to loved-up couples who want a wedding with a view - but you'll need a spare £33,000 ($55,436.28).

The hotel is a favorite of the rich and famous and has hosted stars from footballer Wayne Rooney and his wife Colleen, Formula One star Lewis Hamilton and model Claudia Schiffer.

It is known for its exceptional opulence and proclaims itself 'the world's most luxurious hotel'.

For couples looking to tie the knot, the hotel has a resident 'wedding architect' who will be responsible for every detail of their big day and makes a point of being available 24 hours a day.

Costs could easily soar as guests add in extras, including arriving at the Burj in an Italian twin engine Augusta 109, enjoying a private tasting session with award-winning executive chef Maxime Luvara and a personal shopping experience with the hotel's resident stylist.

The wedding package can also ensure exclusive access to Dubai's best jewelers, private lessons in etiquette and dance and even private after-hours access to to top luxury fashion brands.
