At the royal wedding, the bride wore a white wedding dress while her groom wore a traditional Malaysian dress.
The wedding reportedly did not serve alcohol and all food was halal, cooked according to Islamic law.
Not much is known about the new queen. Her father is a surgeon, and she worked as a model in Thailand and China, winning the title of “Miss Moscow” in 2015 when she was 22.
Voevodina reportedly has a degree in business from the Plekhanov Russian University of Economics in Moscow.
Voevodina converted to Islam in April, 2018, and her new name as a Muslim queen will be Rihana Oxana Gorbatenko.
