After much anticipation, another royal wedding has made its mark on history. On Sunday, March 12, 2023, Princess Iman of Jordan married Jameel Thermiotis during a romantic ceremony with members of the Jordanian royal family in attendance. The bride channeled true royalty in a bespoke Dior wedding dress with long sleeves, a high neckline, and lace detailing, according to People. She completed her regal look with a diamond-encrusted tiara, a floral-embroidered veil, and a small bouquet that was comprised of an assortment of white flowers. Her Venezuelan venture capitalist groom sported a three-piece black suit, which he paired with a black tie and a white pocket square.  

The special day began with Crown Prince Hussein, Iman’s brother, escorting the bride through the palace gardens—with their flower girls in tow—and then walking his sister down the aisle. Hussein documented the moment on Instagram, along with the caption, “Grateful for all the precious memories we share and overjoyed to see you celebrate your wedding today… I wish you, dear Iman and Jameel, a lifetime of blessings and happiness together.”

Based on a collection of photos that the bride’s mother, Queen Rania, uploaded on social media following the big day, the royal couple held their ceremony in a room enclosed with floor-to-ceiling windows that brought the outdoors in. Arrangements of white flowers peppered the carpeted aisle, leading to tree-like structures adorned with white blooms on the altar, which mirrored the natural scenery. “Iman, I pray this next chapter in your life brings you as much joy, love, and laughter as you have brought us over the years,” Rania’s caption says. “Congratulations to the bride and groom!”

After they were pronounced husband and wife, bagpipes played while the newlyweds left the ceremony, holding hands and smiling, according to the photos. Then, the duo signed their marriage document in front of the monarch before reading a verse from the Koran, Reuters reports. The duo captured their first few moments as a newly married couple by taking portraits around the palace. 

The queen dedicated several Instagram posts to her daughter’s wedding. After her initial post, she shared another carousel of images, which shows a portrait of the entire family posing, the bride and groom exchanging wedding bands, and scenes from the ceremony. The snaps also highlight the mother of the bride’s ensemble: a pleated beige dress. “A day unlike any other,” she expresses. “Thank you all for sharing in our joy.” In her third post about the wedding so far, the queen uploaded a video montage from the nuptials. In the clip, the queen wipes away a few tears watching her daughter’s ceremony. “My dear Iman, it’s not goodbye when you’re always on my mind and in my heart,” the caption says. “God bless you.” The video also captures a brief scene from the post-wedding party, where a multi-tier cake towers above the guests.

The royal wedding comes a week after the Royal Hashemite Court shared the couple's wedding date with the public. "The Royal Hashemite Court is pleased to announce that the wedding of Her Royal Highness Princess Iman bint Abdullah II and Mr. Jameel Alexander Thermiotis will take place on 12 March 2023," the announcement said. Eight months before that, the court revealed the news that the princess and her financier boyfriend were engaged. "The Royal Hashemite Court is pleased to announce the engagement of Her Royal Highness Princess Iman bint Abdullah II to Mr. Jameel Alexander Thermiotis, on Tuesday, 5 July 2022 in the presence of Their Majesties King Abdullah II and Queen Rania Al Abdullah, as well as Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II, Prince Hashem bin Abdullah II, and Princess Salma bint Abdullah II, in addition to members of Mr. Thermiotis' family," the court said.
