Intimate Cape Town Muslim Wedding

Intimate Cape Town Muslim Wedding

Who would have thought intimate Cape Town Muslim wedding would be words used in the same sentence. But thanks to lock down, it was so.

In western terms 50 people is an average sized wedding, but for a traditional Muslim wedding, we’re easily talking 600 people at a wedding reception. For reals.

Even a few weeks before their big day, Mumtaj and Zak were unsure if their wedding would even go ahead. But when we met them, they said to us, even if it was just the two of them, they were going to get married! They asked coyly if we’d still be there, and we said OF COURSE we would, not matter what! Luckily there were no new restrictions and their intimate wedding could go ahead.

It was due to bucket down with rain on their wedding day, but thankfully, Mumtaj had a plan B, and we were never really caught out by getting too wet!

After a beautiful Nikkah ceremony, Mumtaj and Zak had a celebratory lunch with their guests at the Alhambra Restaurant.

Then it was off to the Banksia Boutique Hotel in Rosebank for the couple shoot. Luckily there were no guests, so we had the whole place to ourselves, which was wonderful. And when things were a little gloomy outside, we were nice and dry inside.

There were so many special moments captured during Mumtaj and Zak’s intimate Cape Town Muslim wedding. One of our favourite parts of the day, was just before the ring exchange when when the bride and groom got to see each other for the first time after the Nikkah had been performed. Zak had the biggest smile you could ever imagine. It just oozed happiness, and you could see these two were totally made for each other.

Mumtaj and Zak, we are so honoured to have documented your beautiful wedding day. We hope that these images keep the memories alive for many years to come.
