A video from their wedding has had nearly one million views!

This post on Facebook contains the wedding video as well as some photos of the lovely couple:


Here’s the video:


The couple, who met in August 2017 in Bali, has been together ever since. Karna was working in Bali as a surfing instructor and restaurant owner. His restaurant, Luku Kitchen, is famed for its juicy burgers and is located in Seminyak, Bali.

After the couple fell in love, their relationship was tested with a long-distance period of a year and a half. But the time and distance did not get between them. In fact, it made them stronger and brought them closer together. Close enough for them to decide to seal the deal with a lovely wedding, where Polly wore a simple white dress and a light pink head scarf.

Polly had converted to Islam six months before the wedding so that she could marry Karna, who is blissfully grateful to have his lovely wife.

“This is fate. I never asked for a foreign wife, but God has decided that Polly should be my wife and I am truly thankful for this,” said Karna.

Karna is currently applying for Indonesian citizenship for Polly. After the wedding, the couple went back to Bali, where they now live.

Karna’s family were present for the wedding, while Polly’s were not, even though it was reported her family had given her and Karna their support and love.
