It is rightly said that marriages are settled in heaven but celebrated on earth and so it happened in the case of two students of Baku Higher Oil School (BHOS), Azerbaijan’s national Elvin Ismailov and his Pakistani class fellow Masume Rizvi who fell in love with each other and decided to marry.

The marriage ceremony took place last month in Baku and was attended by close relatives of both the families.

According to the Azerbaijan embassy in Islamabad, the marriage was welcomed by both the Pakistani and the Azerbaijan nations as people and leadership of the countries are close friends and keep each other in high esteem.

The marriage ceremony was also attended by Ambassador of Pakistan to Azerbaijan Bilal Hayee and Rector of Baku Higher Oil School Elmar Gasimov and they acted as witnesses at the wedding ceremony of the citizens of the two friendly countries.

According to the statement, the rector and the ambassador congratulated the young couple and wished them a happy family life based on warm and strong relations, similar to those that exist between the two countries.

Both Elvin Ismailov and Masume Rizji lived in the BHOS Student House during their study at the university and during the same period, they met and fell in love.

Elvin Ismailov, a graduate of the BHOS Petroleum Engineering Department, married a 3rd-year student of the same department Masume Rizji, who is originally from Pakistan.

The newlyweds were also presented with gifts by the ambassador, the Rector and their class mates.

According to the Azerbaijan embassy, although the wedding ceremony was held in accordance with the traditions of both countries, a small number of close relatives of the couple attended it strictly in accordance with the quarantine rules.
