Sharing a carousel of pictures from her big day, Fatima wrote, "Yesterday, Graham and I married in a small nikkah ceremony in my family home, 70 Clifton (Karachi). My brother Zulfiqar tied our grandmother’s imam zamin on me and the ceremony was conducted in my grandfather’s libraries, one of my most beloved places on earth."
She went on to add, "Behind us were my aunts, uncle and father’s childhood photos and an original People’s Party flag placed by my grandfather himself. We won’t be having any other ceremonies, I’m not one for opulent weddings but especially now it feels so inappropriate given what so many are struggling through."

Fatima concluded, "I missed my darling father tremendously, but he was with us. I felt him in my heart and among us as everyone present loved Papa so much.
Please keep us in your prayers and thank you for all your kind wishes."
Fatima chose a white anarkali with silver detailing on her dupatta. She coupled her look with a silver maang-teeka with matching earrings and red and white bangles. In the picture shared by her brother, the renowned author could be seen donning a gorgeous red orhni with gold embellishments. Her husband wore a colour-coordinated kurta, pyjama.
Previously, her brother, Zulfiqar congratulated the newlyweds on social media. "On behalf of our father, Shaheed Mir Murtaza Bhutto and the Bhutto family, I’m very happy to share some happy news. My sister Fatima and Graham were married in an intimate nikkah ceremony yesterday at our home, 70 Clifton," he wrote on his Twitter handle.

"The ceremony was attended by Fatima’s loved ones in our grandfather’s library, a place that means a lot to my dear sister. Due to the difficult circumstances felt by our fellow countrymen and women, we all felt it would be inappropriate to celebrate lavishly." He also called for prayers for the couple. The event was reportedly a private affair, with only close friends and family in attendance.
