My fiancee and I (Australian / Canadian expats) wish to get married here in Dubai... can someone please advice on the options available to us? Are there any marriage registries here?
Any help would be appreciated.

but when mrs. Fayz and I got hitched, (we are from two different countries and were both working here). we ended up going to one of our respective countries and had a quickie wedding, just make sure to get the wedding papers notarized and stamped by the UAE embassy in that country before flying back. I'd go for this because at least this way you're official in one of your two countries and the UAE.
good advice to check with your Embassy though, also it may be worth noting that civil marriages aren't done in the UAE, if that's a concern.
