While we were all busy discussing the engagements and relationships of the who’s who of Lollywood, somewhere on the internet a lone wedding card surfaced. Hamza Ali Abbasi and Naimal Khawar’s wedding card created a frenzy all over the internet. Some people were heartbroken, some happy but everyone was shocked.
Hamza then came forward with a lengthy Facebook post in which he confirmed the news. He said that he’d been friends with Naimal for the past 2 years but only recently had Allah put it in his heart to ask her hand in marriage and she’d agreed. He also admitted that his purpose for going through with the wedding was only to make Allah happy and there had been no prior relationship between the two.
Yesterday, the couple’s nikkah took place and here’s what all went down.
All White Everything
The couple chose to have a simple nikkah which will be followed by a walima. The nikkah took place at Monal, Islamabad. The setup was very intimate, the theme was white and Hamza and Naimal got married amongst friends and family. The event was beautifully managed by Arij Innovations.
The celebrity guests included Atif Aslam, Ammara Hikmat, Usman Mukhtar, Gohar Rasheed, and Uzair Jaswal. Hamza and Naimal’s families were also present to bless the union.
Who Wore What
Hamza made his entrance with friends and family in a simple white shalwar kameez.
Naimal looked breathtaking in her mother’s wedding lehnga, revamped by her designer, Maheen Shah.
The Nikkah Ceremony
The nikkah papers were signed and Naimal joined Hamza on stage with the cutest squeal of excitement. Hamza, ever the gentleman, held on to her hand throughout the event.
Both bride and groom were all smiles throughout the ceremony, giving us all kinds of couple goals.
When it was time for her rukhsati, Hamza led her away with her hand in his. While saying goodbye to the couple, Naimal’s sister made sure to remind Hamza to ‘take care of the gem they were giving him’.
Hamza and Naimal’s nikkah was the epitome of grace, simplicity and old-timey charm that made it incredibly relatable. We wish the couple the best for the future and congratulate them on this beautiful union.
