5 celebrities who got married during lockdown

These couples set the trend for intimate yet famous wedding ceremonies


By Farheen Abdullah

KARACHI: The lockdown that was imposed as a response to the spread of COVID-19 brought with it a blessing in disguise. As banquets and wedding halls across the country remained shut until further notice, people resorted to having more intimate wedding ceremonies at home. And what better way is there to normalize a trend than to have celebrities endorsing it?

Here are five celebrities who got married during the lockdown and proved that one does not need a lavish ceremony to celebrate love and happiness.

1. Sarah Khan and Falak Shabir
This couple has been all over the news lately. Married less than a week ago, Sarah and Falak seemed to have a fairy tale wedding, starting from the perfectly planned proposal on Sarah’s birthday to the mehndi and finally the reception.

2. Fariyal Mehmood and Daniyal Raheal
This adorable couple tied the knot in May this year and while Daniyal’s family was a part of the celebration, Fariyal’s loved ones could only witness the ceremony over video calls from the US since international flights were closed.

3. Hina Altaf and Aagha Ali
May 2020 also witnessed Hina and Aagha getting married in a simple Nikkah ceremony.

The couple seem to be quite head over heels for each other and express the same on social media as well.

4. Samina Ahmed and Manzar Sehbai
It is safe to say that this couple broke the stereotypical expectations of what an ideal wedding should look like while proving that love and companionship are timeless.
