This was a first for me (and per­haps most of Shazia & Norman’s guests): an Irish-Ismaili Mus­lim wed­ding. Shazia and I had first met at Man­dana and Daniel’s wed­ding and I remem­ber her being a won­der­ful and gen­tle soul sin­cere­ly per­form­ing her duties as a brides­maid. When she had con­tact­ed me announc­ing that she was get­ting mar­ried, it was so hum­bling that she would want me to cap­ture her own. We set a meet’n’greet date and via Skype, I was able to recon­nect with her and also meet her hus­band-to-be, Nor­man. Talk­ing with both of them was like catch­ing up with old friends and after all that was said-and-done, we were all set for their wed­ding day.

The day ran smooth­ly despite a bit of rain (show­er of bless­ings, I say!). Just as I remem­bered her, Shazia got ready very cool and col­lect­ed, with the sup­port of her fam­i­ly and friends. Then, Nor­man had arrived and it was time to do “the first look”. The house made for an excel­lent spot to cap­ture the moment as she ele­gant­ly and excit­ed­ly walked down the stairs. To see their expres­sions was just heart­felt!

The cer­e­mo­ny was held at the Scar­bor­ough Ismaili Jamatkhana Mosque with a sim­ple lun­cheon recep­tion that fol­lowed. There­after, every­one con­tin­ued on the cel­e­bra­tion at the Aga Khan Muse­um. Again, it was my first time ever being at this loca­tion and what a won­der it was! Beau­ti­ful min­i­mal archi­tec­ture mixed with ser­vice berry blos­soms that we took advan­tage of for the for­mal por­traits, while the rain let up. It was cer­tain­ly a photographer’s won­der­land. With great food, great com­pa­ny of guests and an Irish band, who could not get up to dance a jig or two?!

All in all it was such a love­ly expe­ri­ence, more­so because of Shazia & Norman’s nat­ur­al hos­pi­tal­i­ty which will be remem­bered for many years to come. Hope you enjoy these high­lights!
