Her fair complexion and tall height might be a sharp contrast against her husband’s dark skin and shorter stature but such meant nothing to English girl Polly Alexandria Robinson who had fallen in love with Indonesian surfing instructor Karna Radheya.
The love birds met in Bali, Indonesia back in August 2017. They immediately fell in love with each other, becoming closer with each meeting. And when the tourist went back to her home in Manchester, England, the two kept in touch.
The long-distance relationship grew stronger and the couple would soon talk about marriage. Ready to take their relationship further, Polly decided to convert to Islam so they could get married in Karna’s hometown in Magelang, Indonesia.
She took the trip back to Indonesia and married Karna in a traditional Muslim ceremony on December 16.
Surrounded by Karna’s family and friends, Polly happily exchanged vows with Karna. She towered above everyone on the guest list, even her groom, but the gorgeous bride was happy despite her family being notably absent from the event.
Polly shared that her family gave their blessing but were unable to attend the wedding for various reasons. This did not bother Polly at all – she was in Indonesia to marry the love of her life, after all.
After the couple’s wedding in Magelang, they went to Bali where Karna owns a restaurant named Luku Kitchen. He also works as certified surfing instructor in this island well known to be among the country’s primary tourist destinations.
But their wedding photos would soon go viral on social media.
A lot of people called Karna lucky for having such a beautiful foreigner wife.
“My only intention is to make our relationship halal. But since our story has already gone viral, I hope it will be an inspirational tale for netizens,” Karna said.
Congratulations to you both!
