Wedding Photos

This is long overdue, it’s almost stale. We’ve been married five months and I’m only putting photos up now.

In hindsight, should have used a nicer hanger for my dress. There is a whole wedding dress debacle which I shall save for a later post (who knows when that will ever go up!).

We Face-Timed with a few of my Canadians friends during the Nikah. I knew they’d be there in spirit, but it was also nice to see their faces enlarged on my phone. I miss them so much.

Months before getting married, I was obsessed with wedding videos. I watched hours of complete strangers’ wedding footage. They always seem to be so dramatic, climatic and someone would undoubtedly cry.

Most of the time it’s the bride. I didn’t know if I was going to cry. I knew Mama would, Amal would, but me – not so sure.

Turns out I did. But not when I was “handed over” to Ashraf, or when I kissed Mama when it happened. I cried when the Qadi read the doa after the Nikah – he asked for Allah to bless our families, our marriage and all those that came before us. I started feeling tears when he said that, I thought about my arwah grandma.

I would’ve done anything for her to be there with us, to meet Ashraf (she would’ve liked him, I’m sure of it) and just to be a part of a day I had thought about for so long. But Allah knows best, and Inshallah I know she’s in a much better place.

One of the things I really wanted to do was to pray solat sunat nikah together. It’s usually the groom who prays it by himself, because the brides have a whole face of make up on and probably can’t keep wudhu. But I was so determined! I took wudhu at 7 a.m. before the make up artist came and kept it the whole time – I couldn’t even pee!

We prayed around 10:45 a.m. so I was pretty proud of myself. That’s almost four hours without a bathroom break.

My two bestest friends in the whole world. There are a lot of changes that happen when you get married, but for me the two constants are Mama and Mools.

These photos are darn cute!
