This was the first Muslim wedding I’ve ever shot. And I must say I kind of went in blind. I met with the couple a few times to run through the program. However on the day of the wedding it felt like my first time out in the field. In the end it was a beautiful wedding. With Cape Town offering up another beautiful day, Rhodes Memorial offering up great location for shooting and off course Husnain and Lailaa being such a great couple, the wedding went off without a hitch. I must say if there is one thing I really do love about Muslim wedding is the amount of times you get to eat!!
It was all such a new and great experience, being in the mosque for the first time, to eating traditional Indian cuisine. Lailaa looked stunning in her traditional saree, later changing into her white wedding gown. With Husnain not looking too bad either 😉
In the end the love Husnain has for Lailaa is more than clear. Not only can you see it in the photos, but just being around them you can feel the love they have for each other. Photographing them was so easy as they just enjoyed each other and lived in the moment.
