Ruksana & Shaheen’s Cape Town Engagement Photos

We post these Cape Town engagement photos with slightly mixed emotions.  We have grown to love the Kaskar family over the last few years.   We have captured several of the family as well as extended family weddings.

Sadly we are going to be missing out on Ruksana and Shaheen’s special day.  We know the Kaskar girls love a little Bollywood Bling, so it’s ironic that we’ll be in India on their wedding day.  We’ll most certainly be thinking of you as we are gearing up for Diwali celebrations!

The first of Ruksanan’s Cape Town engagement photos were taken at Ruksana’s family home.  Close family members gather here before the engagement party to give a traditional send off.  We met the latest addition to the family – another little nephew for Ruksana.  He is too cute!

Ruksana looked absolutely gorgeous.  Her mom chose her outfit and accessories.  She took full advantage of probably the last time she gets to dress her daughter.  Ruksana’s beautiful Sharara is from Memsaab Collection.  Her make-up was done by Suaad D Artistry.

The engagement party was held at the Tuscany Hall and all catering was done by Cathkin Caterers.  We’ve worked here a number of times, and can honestly say that this is some of the yummiest food around.

We are always in awe of the beautiful gifts at the engagement party.  It’s tradition for the soon to be bride and groom’s families to make up the most stunning gifts which are then exchanged.  The most important gifts of all though are the engagement ring as well as the watches.  These are exchanged during a special ceremony.

After dinner family and friends come to congratulate the couple and pose for a photo with them.

We took so many photos on the evening, but here are just a few of our favourites.

Thank you, Ruksana and Shaheen for including us in a small part of your love story by giving us the opportunity to take your Cape Town engagement photos.  Wishing you the best wedding day EVER!  Insha Allah!
