You don’t see enough Asian weddings in blog land which surprises me really as they are so colourful and full of love that one would think they were perfect blogging material. Luckily for me, photographer Tapas Maiti, who specialises in these weddings, send me this gorgeous Muslim wedding last week. I have a couple of Indian friends and I am always intrigued to hear about their epic wedding celebrations and how different they are to the western wedding. They are all about colour, family and fun!
“Tamanna & Tanveer are Bengali Muslims from Bangladesh and the wedding ceremony itself is called a Nikah.” Tapas told me. “It is quite common for the Nikah to be undertaken as a private family affair with an community elder or Imam. The Wedding Reception is the opportunity to announce themselves to their friends and relatives.”
