ALBAWABA - Jordan's Princess Iman, the eldest daughter of King Abdullah II, tied the knot with Jameel Alexander Thermiotis in a dashing ceremony held at her parents mansion on the outskirts of the Jordanian capital Sunday.
In the presence of Abdullah, his wife Queen Rania and their three other children, including the king's eldest son and heir to the Hashemite Throne, Hussein, and other members of the Royal Hashemite dynasty as well as guests, Iman walked into a sun room at Beit Al-Urdun Palace, Arabic for the House of Jordan, clutching onto her brother, Hussein. The crown prince, who got engaged to a Saudi-born woman, plans to wed in June.
The elegantly-furnished and well-lit room with floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooked a cherry blossom garden.

Iman, 26, dressed in a white wedding gown with a train, which along with the white veil embellished with a diamond tiara on her head, extended a couple of meters behind her as she walked through the ravishing garden into the courtly chamber, where a Muslim cleric registered the marriage.

Members of the Thermiotis family and a number of invited guests, including the wife of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, attended the wedding, which preceded a multi-layer cake-cutting reception.
The wedding ceremony and reception, which followed a bridal shower and other private family celebrations in the past week, was broadcast live on all Jordan-based TV channels.
At the reception room's entrance, a popular Jordanian folk group named after the southern desert city of Maan, staged a wedding procession, clapping, beating the drums and singing for the wedded couple, as the king, queen, members of the royal family and guests looked on. Members of the folkloric group donned white thobes and red-and-white checkered kaffiyehs, or headdress as they danced to the tunes of bagpipes played by a Jordanian army musical group.
