Kayennat's and Khizer's Wedding: The Nikkah

The Nikkah is the religious wedding ceremony for Muslims. Traditionally, this is done in a Mosque, with men and women separately, this meant that the bride and groom are not actually next to each other as they are married. We however did not do it this way. This shows how relaxed our families are!

It was conducted in our kitchen, with the bride and groom sat next to each, other, with the appropriate people present in the same room. This included me, our parents, the Imam: who conducts the Nikkah, Khizer's brother, our cousin who was recording and two cousins who were outside at the time and came in and had to stay there. Silly boys! 

The other guests were separated, women in the dining room and men in the living room. I personally couldn't care, but tradition had to come into play somehow. 

Kayennat wore a simple white churidar suit that was a gift from our aunty. Khizer wore a pale gold and cream kurta pyjama suit from Indian Kashmir. 

We all kept our makeup very simple since it was a religious thing, and after the cooking, and making sure everything was ready, we didnt really have much time to get ready!

My outfit was a short anarkali suit from Pantaloons, Select Citywalk Mall, Delhi. Its so pretty and I feel all cute in it. Mothers and Nuzhah's suit was from CTC Emporio, Karol Bagh, Delhi. 

We cooked the food ourselves and made chicken briyani. We prefer home cooked food to ordering in - so much better!

Here are some of the pictures from the day! 
*NOTE: Our faces' look a bit "white" in some of the pictures due to bad indoor lighting and flash photography. 

Much Love,
