While I am away on holiday I have asked a couple of lovely people to...
I have something a bit different for you today in the form of this Shia Muslim Wedding which has been sent into me by Shah from S Romel Photography who specialises in Asian Wedding photography. The lovely couple are Anikka and Qussay who were married in the Husseini Mosque in Middlesex. I love featuring weddings from different faiths as they each have so many different traditions, I feel that I learn something new every time I feature one. This wedding is no exception, I hope you love it as much as I do.
Anikka got in touch with me couple of months before her big day. I have never covered a Shia wedding before so I jumped on board at the first chance. What I didn’t know was that it was a Dawhoodi Bohra wedding. Dawoodi Bohras are a small sect of Shia Muslims that pay a lot of emphasis on universal education and equality.
The wedding took place at the beautiful Husseini Mosque in Middlesex. It was an awesome day and a great cultural experience for me overall. In between the rituals and ceremony – I had a few minutes alone with the couple. We went for a short break, away from the guests and managed to explore the mosque and the surroundings. These two were brilliant.
