She’s poised to perform in the grand final interval at Eurovision 2017, just one day after delivering her biggest and most spectacular concert to date.

But before she dives voice-first into the action, Jamala took a very important break on Wednesday, marrying her long-time partner Bekir Suleimanov.

Covered in white from head to toe, the “1944” singer looked pristine and overjoyed as she and Bekir officially signed their lives over to each other in holy matrimony.

Guests at the private ceremony sat in chairs and on the floor, while Jamala and her beloved exchanged vows to signal their commitment to one another.

Jamala, who gave Ukraine its second-ever Eurovision victory in May, announced her engagement on November 2.

The singer — full name Susana Alimivna Jamaladinova — revealed the news by uploading a sweet picture of herself to Instagram and Facebook, which showed her smiling and with her engagement ring on fine display.

The Elle magazine cover star worked a dramatic eye in the image, created with lashings of mascara, kohl eyeliner, and a natural happiness that comes from love.

She let her dark locks fall loosely and her bangs covers much of her wrinkle-free forehead.

Bekir, her long-time boyfriend, is an economist and mathematician — a reality that made Jamala doubt her relationship initially.

Speaking to Ukraine’s 1+1 in October, she said they’ve found surprising common ground.

“He loves his job,” she said. “At first I was very worried about how a musician may not be able to find something in common with mathematics. But he really helps me with his mathematical mind to understand what is happening in the music.”

Good night!???

A post shared by Jamala (@jamalajaaa) on

“We are dating, and we have very friendly relationships with each other’s parents. I don’t want to comment, but I will say that this relationship is very serious for me. I haven’t got a proposal, but are having serious conversations.”

Eurovision fans will want to thank Bekir, as he is one of the main reasons she decided to compete at Eurovision.

“I said, ‘No, never,'” she remembers of her early thoughts of Eurovision. “He gave me a graph which showed the pros and cons, and explained everything to me. And I agreed.”

Here’s wishing Jamala and Bekir a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations!

Say what you want but Jamala is extremely talented. Also, she showcased her heritage through her song using Armenian duduk, Azeri/Turkic mugham and signing in Tatar language.

Congrats to Jamala! I’m so happy she won the contest and a great husband! The fact he used a graph to show her the pros and cons of her doing Eurovision is amazing. They are a cute and kooky couple! I hope they have a long and happy marriage!

Go bring your negative outlook somewhere else. This is a post about her wedding and here you are being bitter about something that already happened and can’t change. Get over it.

For me, Ukraine is a deserved winner!

I also thank Bekir who convinced her to participate! He used a strange way though! (using his mathematical experience, making a graph with prons and cons!) I loved this!

Congatulations to the happy couple! Wish you all the best in your common life!

I like that dress she’s wearing. It looks really unusual.

Anyway, Jamalla seems like a nice lady. Glad she’s marrying a very normal person, rather than some nutty celebrity.

No, I wouldn’t. If it wasn’t for him, Jamala would not have entered Eurovision and Dami Im would have won last year!

I’m sad she is not lesbian. If she came out it would be amazing – another gay winner showing europe is tolerant

Really? You are sad she isn’t gay because it would show how tolerant Europe is? That’s ridiculous to wish someone to be another sexuality.

She’s a Muslim Turkic/Armenian from a Slavic Orthodox country, so her win, much like that of Loreen’s indicates the success of multiculturalism.

I don’t like her new haircut AT ALL, she had such a beautiful hair during Eurovision and before that, on Ukraine national final in 2016…. But besides that small detail, she looks radiant! All the best to her and her husband, all the happiness in the world!

As a Turk, I decided to write in Turkish, since our languages are quire similar.
Can’t wait to see her performing on the stage.

Whoa…Since tatar and azeri languages are that close I also wish : “Eyiligiñizge yaras?n! Alla uzaq ömür bersin! Dert-belâ körmeñ!” v? “Xoshbext olun! Her shey ureyinizce olsun! Bir yast?qda qocalin!” <3

The nikkah (Islamic wedding ceremony) looks really beautiful. Jamala, for all her polarity, is along with Loreen a wonderful example of a Muslim. So happy for my ummah!

yes, Loreen was raised a Muslim by her Moroccan parents, though i reckon she’s not religious any more 🙂

Loreen is NOT Muslim. And she’s Berber not Arab.
