Ghousia Manzil Engagement

Zaheera & Wasim

Two weekends ago, we got to photograph another Ghousia Manzil Hall engagement.  This time it was Zaheera and Wasim’s colourful event.

Zaheera is one of 5 beautiful sisters.  Each one is more delightful than the next.  And when you meet their gorgeous mom, it’s not hard to see where the good looks come from – she could easily be mistaken for one of the sisters!

Our evening started at Zaheera’s family home.  There’s always an air of excitement leading up to the departure to the venue.  The house is a hive of activity with gifts being dropped off, last minute speeches written and accessories for outfits picked out.  Of course it’s all about the bride to be.  This is when she really gets to splash out in a blingy Indian outfit, wear bold make up and have her moment to shine.  We loved that we had a few moments alone with Zaheera before she came down the stairs to join her family.

We got to get some amazing portraits of her.  What a beautiful tradition having a family prayer together before leaving.  Something we’ve realized in the more than 15 years we’ve been photographing Muslim events is how strong their faith is.  And something we find really admirable amongst the community.

We were able  to enter  the beautiful spacious, and air conditioned Ghousia Manzil hall shortly before the guests with just with enough time to get a few shots of the décor and set up before everyone came in.  As usual, La Elegante Catering did an outstanding job with the food.  They never disappoint!

What a fabulous and colourful moment filled evening!

Congratulations Zaheera & Wasim on your engagement.  Wishing you loads of happiness in the years to come!  Thank you for choosing us to document your Ghousia Manzil Hall Engagement Function.
