It was such an honour for us to capture Bima and Salahudien’s beautiful Cape Town Muslim wedding. They are the sweetest, most gentle couple. When they are together, their eyes light up. It’s hard to think that they spent so much time apart. Bima is from Mozambique and Salahudien, from Cape Town. Their sisters are friends, and decided it was time to introduce the two to each other. And thus began a lengthy Facebook chat. It was quite some time before they actually met, but when they did, as they say “the rest was history.”
Bima and Salahudien’s wedding weekend started on the Friday night already with a traditional Mehndi Evening. Understandably this Cape Town Muslim wedding was small in comparison to most. It simply would just not have been possible for everyone to make the trip to Cape Town. Nevertheless Bima was surrounded by her nearest and dearest, with some family members even making the trip across from the States. How lovely to hear Portuguese being spoken throughout the weekend’s events! Salahudien’s family made us feel so welcome too, what a kind, lovely family.
