This is us.
I come from Slovenia and he is from Sudan, where we got married last year. We opted for a traditional Sudanese, yet modest wedding celebration. As bride and groom, we both had henna ornaments, wore the traditional Sudanese attire – I was in red, he wore white. There was music by a group of women singers. The guests had a feast before our arrival, as is the custom, after that congratulations and good wishes followed. It was a day we will never forget.
Two months later I joined my husband in Saudi Arabia, where he has been working for 8 years now. We closed the distance, which was our biggest obstacle. Now we are together and we are looking forward to the future we are building.
