The Burj Al Arab helipad has a history of hosting unique activities. In 2004 Tiger Woods teed off the helipad and the following year Roger Federer and Andre Agassi challenged each other to a game of tennis there. In 2011 Rory McIlroy performed a hole-in-one from the helipad pad and last year Formula One Champion David Coulthard performed donuts in a Red Bull Racing car. This new wedding experience will add to the hotel’s long list of extravagant occasions.
