An Egyptian couple has tied the knot on Doha’s Corniche during the Eid holidays, Al Sharq reports.
Maha Al Awadhi, who sported a white dress with a long train, and her groom, civil engineer Ubaid Zaki, dressed in a black suit, were surrounded by friends and family during the celebration, Gulf News translates:
The bride, who works at Al Maha Academy, said that she was elated to celebrate her Eid wedding in Qatar, her second home, local Arabic daily Al Sharq reported on Sunday.
The groom was grateful to the “guests” for attending the wedding and prayed that those who were not married would celebrate their own weddings soon.
The newspaper adds that earlier this month, a couple in Saudi Arabia were less successful in their attempts to marry publicly, when religious police broke up their ceremony at Dhahran mall. There, the groom faced questioning for the taboo display, the paper said.
This is not the first time a couple in Qatar has chosen to celebrate their wedding so publicly.
Another expat couple reportedly tied the knot at Landmark Mall in June, much to the delight and disbelief of many residents.
