Princess Iman, daughter of King Abdullah II and Queen Rania of Jordan, has married Jameel Thermiotis in a ceremony in the outskirts of Amman.

The princess, 26, wore a custom Dior white gown with a lace neckline and cuffs, and a trailing veil.

She also wore a diamond tiara reportedly owned by her grandmother, Princess Muna Al Hussein, mother of King Abdullah II.

Princess Iman's new husband wore a suit with a grey waistcoat.

Members of the Jordanian royal family were in attendance at the ceremony. Queen Rania wore a pleated taupe gown by Dior. The high-necked design is from the brand's autumn 2022 couture collection.

Princess Salma, 22, the youngest daughter of the Jordanian king and queen, wore a pink Andrew Gn dress with a bejewelled belt by the same designer, which has previously been worn by her mother.

Rajwa Al Saif, the fiancee of Crown Prince Hussein, wore a yellow Roksanda Ilincic dress to attend the wedding. Al Saif and the Jordanian prince are to marry on June 1.

In the hours leading up to the wedding, Queen Rania shared a video of special details, including the flowers, candles, cushions and an incense burner. She thanked Jordanian company ADegrees for a "lovely setup”.

On Tuesday, Princess Iman and her mother Queen Rania attended her pre-wedding henna party. For the ceremony, Princess Iman wore an embroidered white dress by Reema Dahbour, a Jordanian-Palestinian fashion designer.

The gown was accessorised with the same Bruce Oldfield white and gold belt Queen Rania wore for her wedding to King Abdullah in 1993. For the ceremony 30 years ago, she wore a short-sleeved gold and white gown, by the British fashion designer.

Who is Jameel Alexander Thermiotis?

Thermiotis was born in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1994 and is of Greek descent, Jordan's royal court said following their engagement announcement. He holds a bachelor's degree in business administration and works in finance in New York.

The couple announced their engagement in July in a post shared by the Royal Hashemite Court on Twitter.

The court congratulated the king and queen on the engagement, wishing the couple “a lifetime of happiness”.

Queen Rania also posted a message to her daughter on Facebook and Instagram.

“Congratulations my dearest Iman; your smile has always been a gift of love that I’ve cherished since the day you were born. I wish you and Jameel a life filled with love and laughter!”
