As 2020 started, many of us had plans that ultimately went wrong thanks to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. A job, a move to a new country, a wedding, or a simple New Year’s resolution. When the world struggled to adjust to the new normal, we had to rethink and re-prioritize much of our lives.
Despite its challenges, 2020 was a good year for many – especially for celebrities who tied the knot during the year. Here are some of our favorite stars who didn’t let Covid-19 ruin the wedding.
1. Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir
After a whirlwind romance of around two years, this beautiful couple tied the knot in Abu Dhabi in March. Your wedding will surely be one for the books. While Sajal couldn’t make the celebration as easy as she would have liked, she chose to look down and kept it at the old school on the big day.
2. Samina Ahmed and Manzar Sehbai
At 70, these two decided to listen to their hearts, take the plunge and tie the knot! Manzar and Samina kept it extremely simple and sober, as can be seen in the photos of their Nikkah ceremony on April 4, 2020. Samina put on a simple and classic sari, while Manzar looked elegant in a vest. We wish them both luck and health!
3. Umair Jaswal and Sana Javed:

In October, actor Sana Javed and rock star Umair Jaswal tied the knot in an intimate ceremony. The couple went on social media and shared pictures from their wedding. Sana and Umair made a beautiful couple on their Nikkah. The Sammi Meri Waar singer wore a cream colored shalwar kameez while the Ruswai star formed a stunning bride in a peach colored Bunto Kazmi ensemble.
The duo went to Instagram and shared pictures.
4. Eman Suleman and Jamil Haider
Model Eman Suleman, a fairly progressive voice in an otherwise dreary industry, has also teamed up with Syed Jamil Rizvi on a private matter. The two ended the celebrations with a traditional rukhsati among friends and family. On the guest list were a number of models who were well dressed for their boyfriend’s big day – Rehmat Ajmal, Saheefa Jabbar Khattak, Zara Peerzada, Neha Rajpoot, Aimal Khan, Arbaqan Changezi and many more.
5. Sadaf Kanwal and Shahroz Sabzwari
Perhaps the most controversial union on this list, and a shock to say the least! Rumors of the pair’s promotion have been making the rounds since December 2019, but have been vehemently denied given Shahroz’s ongoing divorce with Syra Yousuf. After it was completed in February, Sadaf and the Aaye Na chain seem to have found solace in each other and what’s better than that?
6. Hina Altaf and Agha Ali
This one came as a surprise to the duo’s fans, even though people had cracked that they’d been together for a while. Hina and Agha sealed the deal on May 23 under what appeared to be a close family. The bride looked radiant in a simple Nikkah outfit, while Agha took off his usual sharp looks in a cream colored sherwani and waistcoat.
7. Rabab Hashim and Sohain Shamshad
Pakistani starlet Rabab Hashim tied the knot with the beau Sohaib Shamshad in an intimate Nikkah ceremony. The actress kept her events very cautious due to the ongoing pandemic. However, the images caused quite a stir on social media. From her Mayoun to her Nikkah, Hashim ruled social media, keeping it simple but giving off a glow that made us believe that less is definitely more.
8. Sarah Khan and Falak Shabbir
The beautiful Sarah married just a few days after announcing her engagement to singer Falak Shabbir on July 15. The two amazed fans when photos of their wedding went viral on Instagram. Not to mention that Falak’s palpable love for the actor was felt by everyone. Do you remember how he serenaded his bride at her wedding? Really heartwarming.
