His 22-year-old bride, Dayangku Raabi'atul 'Adawiyyah Pengiran Haji Bolkiah, who worked as a systems data analyst and IT instructor, sported a breathtaking diamond tiara studded with six teardrop-shaped emeralds.

A diamond necklace with a central pendant of three emeralds the size of grapes, glittered around her neck, while a matching brooch of two egg-shaped emeralds dangled from a diamond setting.

The newlyweds' wore matching gold outfits which were both embellished with diamonds, while the blushing bride Raabi'atul carried a bouquet made of dazzling gems, rather than flowers.
