Watching two people in love is one of my absolute favourite parts about being a wedding photographer. You know that Roald Dahl quote: ‘If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely’? It could have been written about Sorayya and Usman. They were so relaxed in each other’s company and obviously smitten with each other. Their Colourful Muslim Fulham Palace Wedding was a joy to photograph from start to finish.

A Peach Gown For A Beautiful Bride

Can we just take a minute to talk about Sorayya and how ridiculously stunning she looked in her peach gown?! In fact, she was featured in Huffington Post as one of their most beautiful brides – deservedly so as I’m sure you’ll agree! Her elaborately detailed bangles matched the embroidery on her dress, and the delicate henna on her hands and feet was just gorgeous.

Usman scrubbed up very nicely too in deep purple crushed velvet. He and his family arrived to the ceremony of his Colourful Muslim Fulham Palace Wedding on foot. The ceremony, or Nikkah, was emotional and beautiful. It was particularly special to see Usman’s mum there – she’d been unwell and in hospital, and the couple were unsure whether she would be able to attend. Although she could only stay for the ceremony it meant so much to Sorayya and especially Usman that they could share those moments.

I’m not gonna lie, the confetti shot can be a pretty tense moment for a photographer. Timing is everything! Thankfully, Sorayya and Usman made it easy for me with bucketloads of beautiful natural petals. I think these are some of my favourite images of the day. Why don’t you have a look through the gallery to see which are yours? If you like what you see, or if you’re planning a Fulham Palace celebration and looking for a photographer, why not get in touch on the phone or on email, and let’s talk weddings!
