Nur and Rozana Kamish was the first couple to get married for the second time, thanks to the government registering imams as civil marriage officers.

Muslim marriages are not considered legal, but imams can now officiate the couples, giving them a married status that is legit.

21 joyful couples walked down the aisle at Masjidul Quds in Athlone for a second time on 24 September.

Nur and Rozana were overjoyed to be walking down the aisle.

Both of them were married before, but they found happiness with each other that they had not previously known.

The happy duo met in January and in the groom's words: "We have been on honeymoon since the day we met,".
