When 2020 began, many of us had plans which ultimately went astray, thanks to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. A job, a move to a new country, a wedding or a simple New Years’ resolution. As the world struggled to adapt to the new normal, we had to rethink and reprioritise a lot of our lives.
But despite its challenges, 2020 was a good year for many – especially celebrities who ended up tying the knot during the year. Here are some of our favourite stars who didn’t let covid-19 ruin the nuptials.
1. Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir
After a whirlwind romance of around two years, this gorgeous couple tied the knot in Abu Dhabi in March. Their wedding will surely be one for the books. Even if Sajal couldn’t make the celebration as simple as she might have liked, she dialed her look down and kept it old-school on the big day.
2. Samina Ahmed and Manzar Sehbai
At 70, these two decided to listen to their hearts, take the leap together and tied the knot! Manzar and Samina kept it extremely simple and sober as seen in the photos of their nikkah ceremony which took place on April 4, 2020. Samina donned a simple and classic sari while Manzar looked dapper in a waistcoat. Here’s wishing the two happiness and health!
3. Umair Jaswal and Sana Javed:

In October, actor Sana Javed and rockstar Umair Jaswal tied the knot in an intimate ceremony. The couple took to social media and shared pictures from their wedding nuptials. Sana and Umair made a beautiful pair on their Nikkah. The Sammi Meri Waar singer wore an off white shalwar kameez while the Ruswai star made a stunning bride in a peach Bunto Kazmi ensemble.
The duo took to Instagram and shared pictures.
4. Eman Suleman and Jamil Haider
Model Eman Suleman, who is quite a progressive voice in an otherwise bleak industry, tied the knot with Syed Jamil Rizvi in a private affair as well. The two wrapped up the celebrations with a traditional rukhsati amongst friends and family. The guest list included a number of models, who showed up dressed their best for their friend’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 in this list and a shocker to say the least! Rumours about the two’s courtship had been doing the rounds since December 2019 but were vehemently denied in light of Shahroz’s ongoing divorce with Syra Yousuf. After it was finalised in February, it seems like Sadaf and the Chain Aaye Na found solace in each other and what’s better than that?
6. Hina Altaf and Agha Ali
This one came as something of a surprise for the duo’s fans, even though people had cracked that they had been dating for a while. Hina and Agha sealed the deal on May 23 among what seems like close family. The bride looked radiant in a simple nikkah outfit while Agha pulled off his usual sharp looks in a cream sherwani and waistcoat.
7. Rabab Hashim and Sohain Shamshad
Pakistani starlet Rabab Hashim tied the knot with beau Sohaib Shamshad in an intimate nikkah ceremony. The actor kept her events very low-key, due to the ongoing pandemic. The pictures, however, made waves on social media. From her mayoun to her nikkah, Hashim ruled social media, keeping it simple but radiating a glow that has made us believe that less is definitely more.
8. Sarah Khan and Falak Shabbir
The gorgeous Sarah got married just a couple of days after announcing her engagement to singer Falak Shabbir on July 15. The two sent fans reeling in awe as photos of their wedding went viral on Instagram. Not to mention, Falak’s palpable love for the actor was felt by everyone. Remember how he was serenading his bride at their wedding? Truly heart-warming.
