“Irfan and Safa met in Dubai about two years ago and later came close. Safa even visited Vadodara to meet Irfan’s family. The duo got engaged about three months ago following which the wedding date was fixed,” said a source.

 Safa grew up in Azizyah, a district in Jeddah and she is an alumna of the International Indian School in Jeddah. Daughter of Mirza Farooq Baig, Safa was a model by profession and now works for a PR firm in Jeddah. She is also popular as a nail artist.

It was a simple wedding ceremony in Mecca and the Pathan family had kept it a low-key affair. Only family members and close relatives of 31-year-old Irfan and Safa were present during the ‘nikaah’ following which the Pathan family had organized a dinner programme at a plush hotel at Al-Hindaweeyah on Thursday night.
