SUCH A BEAUTIFUL WEDDING AT THE NOVOTEL HOTEL IN YORK – SAFIYYAH AND AMIR.
IF YOU LOVE SPARKLY THINGS THEN YOU’LL ENJOY THIS INTIMATE WEDDING!
Last Sunday, the day before the reduced wedding lockdown figures, I captured the wonderful wedding ceremony between Safiyyah and Amir a young couple so in love were married at the Novotel Hotel in York.
The day started at Safiyyah’s family home in York having bridal preparation, hair and makeup by the extremely talented Farah Bridal, her makeup truly is a work of art, Safiyyah’s henna designs were completed by her sister Aliyyah- stunning aren’t they….
Before leaving for the ceremony, close family photos were taken in the garden, where neighbours joined to congratulate and send their best wishes.
I met Amir at the Novotel Hotel, York where he arrived with his family, we took the opportunity to take a few portraits, before heading to the ceremony room
The ceremony took place in a beautiful room at the Novotel hotel decorated by Khushi Memoirs, they had created a special seating area for the couple to receive family with flowers and chiffon backdrop, which was lovely. The ceremony included first the Bride signing the Nikaah papers followed by the groom before a meaningful ceremony by their religious leader. It was a moving occasion, full of so much love.
After the ceremony, we went for couples portraits, which was a great idea by the couple, and I got some really special photos in the Museum Gardens, York. The weather was so sunny, it was a beautiful day.
For the reception, the couple had organised delicious canapes for their guests, and everyone really enjoyed it. Guests were then called for the wedding breakfast, which was a wonderful Asian banquet of delights – it was delicious.
The reception ended with cutting the cake made by Aliyyah and feeding one another before a family procession followed the couple out to their car for an emotional send off, everyone had enjoyed their day.
I loved this intimate wedding so much. If you’re getting married and looking for a wedding photographer, get in touch.
