Imam and Salma, Prince Hussein’s sisters who took care of the bride’s veil

While on the streets of Amman the Jordanians celebrate one of the most important events in the history of their country with balloons and musical bands, the Zahran Palace witnesses in a relaxed atmosphere the wedding of Prince Hussein, heir to the throne, with the aristocrat and Saudi architect Rajwa al-Saif. In the gardens of the elegant palace, 140 guests, including some of the most powerful families in the world, experienced first-born’s wedding first-hand of King Abdullah and Queen Rania of Jordan.

The royal family of the Arab country was at the center of the ceremony, especially the sisters of the groom, Imam and Salma of Jordan. Imam of Jordan, 26, the first daughter of the King and Queen of Jordan, wore a turquoise blue gown with a plunging pleated sleeve, a frill hem, and a round neck decorated with an A-line of rhinestones. Her hair is loose and combed into thin ringlets, parted in the center and without large jewels. Imam married Jameel Alexander Thermiotis (two years her senior), a Venezuelan millionaire of Greek descent who went by the name Jimmy before converting to Islam, in a brief and far from lavish wedding for 150 guests in March of this year.

The sister Jordan’s body24, the third child of King Abdullah and Queen Rania, wore a dress nude colour with a high neck and very wide long sleeves, with heels of the same color as the dress and a cut at the waist similar to that of her sister. The princess is not married yet. Earlier this year, after completing her studies at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in England, thus becoming the first female pilot in the Armed Forces, she received a degree in Archeology from the University of Southern California.

Both gave up purses when they entered the site. The reason? They had been chosen to carry the bride’s train. A task they carried out with enthusiasm at every step, up to escorting her down the nave, passing through the halls and gardens of the palace. It was Hashem of Jordan, the youngest son of the Jordanian kings, 18 years old, who escorted the bride arm in arm with his brother, the future king of the country.
