The 30 July 2016 was a day ordained for Zuhayr and Khadeeja to get married. As I entered Khadeeja’s family home for the very first time, I was welcomed with a hug. Khadeeja and her family truly made us feel so warm and special throughout each aspect of the wedding. I can honestly say their hospitality and friendliness will stay with me forever. I feel honoured to have met them.

Our hope and prayer for them, is that they may always look back on this very day and remember their families –  the love and support that surrounds them. My prayer for them both ~

Blessing For A Marriage”, by James Dillet Freeman

“May your marriage bring you all the exquisite excitements a marriage should bring, and may life grant you also patience, tolerance, and understanding. May you always need one another — not so much to fill your emptiness as to help you to know your fullness. A mountain needs a valley to be complete. The valley does not make the mountain less, but more. And the valley is more a valley because it has a mountain towering over it. So let it be with you and you. May you need one another, but not out of weakness. May you want one another, but not out of lack. May you entice one another, but not compel one another. May you embrace one another, but not out encircle one another. May you succeed in all-important ways with one another, and not fail in the little graces. May you look for things to praise, often say, “I love you!” and take no notice of small faults. If you have quarrels that push you apart, may both of you hope to have good sense enough to take the first step back. May you enter into the mystery that is the awareness of one another’s presence — no more physical than spiritual, warm and near when you are side by side, and warm and near when you are in separate rooms or even distant cities. May you have happiness, and may you find it making one another happy. May you have love, and may you find it loving one another.
