Amir-Abbas Hoveyda’s wedding ceremony

On 19 July 1966, Hoveyda married Laila Emami (1932–2018) in a small ceremony. Only a small number of guests were invited to attend, including the Shah, Queen Farah, Laila’s parents, Hoveyda’s mother, and his friend Manouchehr Shahgholi, and his wife. The marriage ended five years later in 1971, but the two would remain friends, often traveling together. Hoveida had no children.
