The wedding of 26-year-old Karna Radheya and 21-year-old girl Polly Alexandria Robinson not only made headlines worldwide, but nearly broke the internet when their wedding images emerged on social media.
According to local media, the pair had been together for some time before they decided to exchange vows in a simple Muslim wedding ceremony on Sunday (Dec 16).
In the video of the ceremony that became widely circulated on social media, the young bride is seen smiling happily while wearing a white dress and a pink shawl covering her head. Beside Robinson is her groom, who is shown attentively listening to the person officiating the wedding.
Radheya met Robinson while he was working in Bali over a year ago in August 2017. The pair reportedly got along immediately, resulting in multiple other meetings. After a few months of getting to know each other, they eventually fell in love and became a couple.
They decided to pursue their relationship even after Robinson returned to England. And while there were those who doubted their long-distance relationship, the couple’s feelings for each other grew even stronger.
