Cape Town Engagement Function
Kaashifa & Muhammed
And there, just like that we found ourselves back in the lovely Aziz household to photograph Kaashifa & Muhammed’s Cape Town engagement function. Not long ago we were photographing Kaashifa’s sister’s engagement there, and subsequently Firdaus & Shehzaad’s wedding day. We are always so humbled at the warm and hospitable welcome we receive at the Aziz home.
It all started with the Parker family quite a number of years ago. Yusrah and Azeem booked us to photograph their wedding and now Yusra’s brother, Muhammed is getting married. We literally have such a rich and beautiful history with these lovely people. It feels more like we are photographing a family function than just “clients.” I mean, who gives you a one ton doggy bag of the most delicious butter chicken, curried prawns, homemade rotis, veggies and rice to take home with you – only FAMILY!
Beautiful Kaashifa, one of five siblings; a brother and 3 other drop dead gorgeous sisters, looked like a princess on the evening of her Cape Town engagement function.
Their mom has a definite flair for beautiful fashion, shoes and make-up, this we’ve learnt on our visits to the Aziz household, and this certainly has rubbed off on her gorgeous daughters!
Tall, handsome Muhammed is a perfect match to Kaashifa. We so enjoyed our brief moments with them on their own up on the balcony of the beautiful Aziz home in Plattekoof. They certainly make a stunning couple!
Engagement events in the Muslim culture are a festive and colourful affair. We love the traditions, the outfits and the beautiful gifts exchanged between families. But most of all it’s admirable to see how religion forms such a central point of daily life.
Kaashifa & Muhammed, you two are perfect for each other. We are so excited to walk this journey with you, and we cannot wait for your wedding later this year!
