Laura and Was – the final instalment

Laura and Was-73

The final piece of this jigsaw came together last week at Crossley House in Halifax when Laura and Was were married according to the Muslim faith. It was the first full Asian wedding I’ve covered but hopefully not the last. 

I especially love the pictures from Laura’s Nikah – a religious ceremony overseen by a Maulvi (Muslim priest) during which the bride signs a marriage contract in front of a handful of witnesses but in the absence of her husband – because she looks so serene. I’m not sure I’d be this calm knowing that 250 or so people were waiting outside for me.

Like last week, Laura’s hair was done by Georgina Wild, a fab bridal hairdresser based over in Manchester. I’ll add a link to her site later; she’s on Facebook too.

Thanks to Jake who assisted me through my sniffing and sneezing. I still haven’t shifted this damn cold. And an extra special thanks to the Mackintosh and Chaudary families – what genuinely lovely people – who made me feel so welcome; always making sure I’d eaten something (thank you, Salim)!

Hope you’re having a wonderful honeymoon, Laura and Was, and once again thank you for asking me to be part of all three events. Hope these pictures bring back some happy memories from last week.
