Beautiful Ismaili Wedding // Alimah + Jamil
Stunning Ismaili Wedding – Alimah and Jamil
This is the first time we’ve been invited to document an Ismaili wedding – and we absolutely loved it. The colours, the celebration, the traditions – THE FOOD. It was all amazing.
My favorite part was how the bride’s family welcomed the groom’s family into their home the night of the Mendhi celebration. The mother of the bride personally welcomed each member of the groom’s family through the threshold of the family home and together they celebrated with the bride, sharing cake and sherbet just two days before the wedding. After all, marriage is not only the wedding of two people but the bringing together of two families as well. The highlight of the night was seeing the look on Alimah’s face when Jamil showed up at the Mendhi party, unexpected.
The rest of the weekend flew by and we found ourselves lost in a colorful celebration with these two. Thank you Alimah and Jamil and congratulations 🙂
