"Light of My Eyes" - African Khoja Muslim Wedding Video Vancouver
With fresh snow on the ground and the winter chill swirling in the air, Zahra and Abbas attracted a lot of looks from curious passers-by. No wonder, with their stunning matching silver outfits, they might as well have been movie stars on a set. So what did we do on that dark January night after the ceremony? We headed to the movie set-esque backdrop of Vancouver's historic Gastown, of course! With some careful lighting from us, the dark alleys and moody corners came to life, and with the help of Z&A, the result was cinematic magic.
The reception next day was also after dark, but the Conservatory Ballroom at Newlands Golf Course was lit up in a glittery storm of light for the most perfect look! From the beautiful reception at Newlands to the traditional muslim wedding ceremony at Richmond's Az-Zahraa mosque, this is a winter wedding you won't soon forget!
This was our very first Khoja wedding! Khojas are East Africans of North Indian heritage. Here in the multi-cultural hub of Vancouver we are fortunate to learn something new every day!
