S.K. + N.S. ~ The Knot Is Tied!

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!
