  • Description

    THE AGA KHAN TOOK FORMER BRITISH MODEL LADY JAMES CRICHTON-STUART AS HIS BRIDE TODAY (TUESDAY) IN A CEREMONY HELD IN A ROOM AT THE BRIDEGROOM'S PARIS RESIDENCE.

    THE AGA KHAN, LONG REGARDED AS ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST ELIGIBLE BACHELORS, WAS MARRIED IN THE PRESENCE OF RED-ROBED MOSLEMS FROM 23 COUNTRIES IN A CEREMONY ALONG TRADITIONAL ISMAILI LINES.

    THE MARRIAGE WAS CONDUCTED BY THE RECTOR OF THE ISMAILI MOSQUE IN PARIS. THROUGHOUT THE 45-MINUTE CEREMONY THE COUPLE SAT ON CHAIRS, EXCHANGING RINGS THEN SIGNING CONTRACTS OF MARRIAGE VOWS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TRADITION. LADY JAMES CRICHTON-STUART, FORMERLY A CATHOLIC, BECAME A MOSLEM A YEAR AGO.

    PRINCE KARIM AGA KHAN IS A MILLIONAIRE AND SPIRITUAL LEADER OF 20 MILLION ISMAILI MOSLEMS. AFTER THE CEREMONY PEARLS WERE SHOWERED AT THE COUPLE'S FEET TO SYMBOLIZE THEM WALKING THROUGH HAPPINESS IN THEIR LIVES.

    THEN THE AGA AND HIS WIFE, DRESSED IN A SARI OF INDIAN SILK, WERE DECORATED WITH GARLANDS AND PRESENTED WITH COPIES OF THE KORAN.
