Ameera & Taariq’s Cape Town City Muslim Wedding

Ameera & Taariq

This Cape Town City Muslim wedding left us feeling grateful and happy.  Grateful, that as Cape Town wedding photographers, we’re fortunate enough to be exposed to so many diverse cultures in our own beautiful city.  We get to shoot in unique places of worship. We also get welcomed in to the homes of such lovely families.  Families who include us in their celebrations and make us feel so at home.

We were left feeling happy just being in the presence of Ameera and Taariq.  They are gorgeous together! And they are the kinds of people who have what it takes to make a marriage work.  We also got to shoot this Cape Town City Muslim wedding incorporating a few of the Mother City’s iconic landmarks.

Ameera and Taariq’s Cape Town City Muslim wedding celebrations started one week prior to their wedding day.  They had a high tea and engagement celebration with their closest family and friends.

On the wedding day we joined Ameera at her home before leaving for the Nikah ceremony.  In our modern world, it is always so touching to see a bride leaving her family home accompanied by blessings from those near and dear.The sunlight in the Mosque was surreal during the Nikah ceremony.  It seemed so symbolic that Ameera was bathed in a shaft of sunlight during the blessings.

After a change of outfit and make-up touch up, Ameera and Taariq joined their guests for the lunchtime reception.  We have covered a number of weddings at the Tuscany Gardens and I must say that Cathkin Catering certainly knows how to cook the most delicious meals.

After the reception we headed off to the centre of Cape Town.  We did the first half of the couple shoot in the colourful, vibrant Long Street.  After this we headed down to Maidens Cove to incorporate some mountain and beach scenes.

The evening ended off with Taariq’s family fetching Ameera and going to his family home for the bangle ceremony.

What a fabulous day!  Thank you,  Ameera & Taariq for including us in your special Cape Town City Muslim Wedding.  It was an honour capturing your moments!
