Sja & Radwan

Dive into our narrative as we embark on a new chapter together, delighted to have you by our side

What we discovered was more than mere companionship; it was the joy of shared laughter, the comfort of shared tears, the thrill of shared dreams.

In each other, we found the missing pieces we didn't know we were searching for, leading to a sense of completion we'd not experienced before.

Our Love Story

Two Souls Becoming One

It all began as a whisper of thought, a flicker of feeling, a new perspective, and a comforting presence.

We had discovered a remarkable bond that transcends the usual expectations of companionship. This bond was more than a simple meeting of minds; it was as though a hand had reached out and intertwined with ours in a powerful and unspoken understanding.

As our relationship blossomed, we found something unique, a precious rarity, woven from the strands of love and thoughtfulness. It soon became apparent that we wished to build a life together, a life filled with moments that would turn into everlasting memories.

وجدتك بعضي بل وجدتك كلّي، حتّى كأنَّ شيئاً لو أصابك أصابني، وحتّى كأنَّ الموت لو أتاك أتاني.

United in Love

Join Us in Our Celebration

We are thrilled to be sharing our special day with you, a day that won't only celebrate our love, but will also honor the rich cultural tapestry from which we hail. As we blend our lives together, we will also be merging the beautiful traditions of our Jordanian and Palestinian heritage.

Get ready for a celebration filled with love, laughter, and precious moments that will last a lifetime.

Zaffeh Bait al Arees

We Start At The Groom's Place

Bait al Arees – The Groom’s Place:

Join us at the groom’s house, or “Bait al Arees,” for the start of our wedding procession. Let’s fill the air with joy, music, and dance as we celebrate the beginning of our marital journey.

“Bait al Arees,” translating to “The Groom’s House” in English, is the traditional starting point for the first part of the wedding procession, or the Zaffeh. This procession is a significant cultural event in Jordanian and Palestinian weddings, symbolizing the groom’s departure from his family home and his journey towards his future spouse and new life.

The Zaffeh takes place a few hours before the main ceremony. It adds to the cultural ambiance of our celebration and is followed with a lively parade of cars accompanying the groom to Bait al Aroos – The Bride’s Place, however participating in the Zaffeh is entirely optional.

Zaffeh Bait al Aroos

The celebration continues at The Bride's Place

Bait al Aroos – The Bride’s Place:

Continuing the joyous celebration from Bait al Arees, the Zaffeh procession leads us to Bait al Aroos – the bride’s house. Here, we come together to honor the union of the bride and groom with Zaghareet*.

Known as “Bait al Aroos” or “The Bride’s House” in English, this subsequent part of the Zaffeh symbolizes the bride’s readiness to leave her family home and embark on a new chapter of life with her spouse.
