Arabic Wedding – Persian Wedding

The reflection on tradition and cultural values is completely natural for an Arabic wedding and that’s what makes the wedding an unforgettable experience.
The Islamic marriage (Nikah) took place in the home of the parents of the bride. We were allowed to accompany the Persian wedding ceremony of the couple in the closest circle of family and friends. The traditional preparations were made, honey, sugar, candles, the Koran, and a large mirror were spread out on a blanket. A custom has not lost its charm and beauty for centuries. The Imam created such an atmosphere in the living room of the parents of the bride that some other priest couldn’t create in a magnificent building. The Moroccan tradition in the family home of the groom was no less beautiful. A henna ceremony of the future bridegroom, delicious food, relaxed sitting together of women and men in different rooms. The atmosphere was relaxed, the women danced and the men chatted over tea.
On the following morning, the wedding day had finally come. Preparations in the Hyatt Hotel Cologne with the makeup of the bride in the presence of her closest friends, the groom getting ready, garnishing the author and the two seeing each other for the first time. Then we went to Cologne, inter alia, Cologne Cathedral, the Botanic Gardens (Flora), the Hohenzollern Bridge with the famous love locks and in the downtown area for the photos of the couple. In Event palace, the first guests from around the world entered the wedding evening and waited for the newlyweds. The bride was picked up from her parents’ house and the bridegroom to spend the evening with Ahmed in the wedding location. It was celebrated all night until the early morning hours. Great clothes, great food made the wedding a special event for us. We thank the newlyweds for hospitality and wish them well for the future.
