Anwar Moosa & Maria Chaudhry Wedding at Garden City Hotel
Maria and Anwar were married on a beautiful day in August at the Garden City Hotel. What was originally intended to be a small ceremony at a Mosque followed by a luncheon with family and friends had grown during the planning stages to be a more or less full day celebration, complete with a Bollywood style dance performance. I arrived to find Maria still getting ready so I was pleased to be able to capture some of this stage of the day given that it wasn’t in her plan originally. We met with her groom to do portraits outside quickly before gathering with the family indoors where it was cooler, and I enjoyed making some nice group shots of everyone in their wedding finery. After this Maria retreated to the bridal suite to put on her wedding veil before the ceremony, which was in a smaller room nearby. I so enjoyed getting to capture this muslim ceremony– it was short and sweet, officiated by an Imam, and focused primarily on prayers and a document signing. Afterwards, there was much hugging and more group photos to capture the happy couple with their guests in attendance. The reception that followed featured delicious indian food catered for the occasion as well as speeches made in the couple’s honor and a delightful slideshow of photos from their lives. Congratulations to Maria and Anwar! I was so honored to capture their special day!
