Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan wed his long-time love and architect, Rajwa Al Saif, on Thursday in a dazzling ceremony at the Zahran Palace in Amman. The couple had been together for several years before tying the knot in front of 140 guests, including the Prince and Princess of Wales, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
In a heartfelt Instagram post, the future Jordanian king paid tribute to his wife, calling her “the light of my life and my lifelong companion.” He expressed his gratitude to God and thanked everyone who celebrated with them.
The Bride’s Stunning Look
The royal bride looked radiant in a long sleeve silk crepe gown designed by Lebanese fashion designer Elie Saab. The dress featured draping details across the bodice and a long train embellished with cut-out flowers and pearl details. Rajwa also accessorized with a new diamond tiara and matching earrings.
For the evening banquet at Al Husseiniya Palace, the bride changed into a Dolce & Gabbana gown with long white arm gloves.
A Royal Affair
The newlyweds traveled in a procession known as the Red Motorcade, consisting of eight bright red armed Land Rover vehicles and 11 motorcycles, from the Zahran Palace to the Al Husseiniya Palace for the evening banquet.
The banquet was attended by several members of the royal family, including Queen Rania, who looked elegant in a black Dior gown with gold detailing for the ceremony and switched up her look for the banquet in a pearl-adorned Elie Saab ensemble with an asymmetric cape. Princess Beatrice wowed in two gowns – a silver embellished number by Needle & Thread and a shimmering blush pink Reem Acra dress with fluted sleeves. She also wore her mother, Sarah, Duchess of York’s diamond tiara.
