Pakistani weddings are joyous affairs full of colour, vibrancy and merriment. Hiba and Ahmed’s wedding was all that and so much more – this was the most extravagant Pakistani wedding we have shot thus far!

Hiba and Ahmed celebrating their Nikkah

The first of their events was the Nikkah followed by the Sangeet. Hiba dressed in beautifully unique Pakistani wedding outfit in bright orange and purple with the perfect hint of green which was matched by the groom’s traditional Pakistani kurta. After the formal Nikkah ceremony uniting the couple in their marriage, the celebrations began! The Sangeet was full of well-choreographed dance performances performed by the family and friends! The groom’s brother stole the show when he and 20 groomsmen surprised the guests by having Hiba and Ahmend join the routine. Everyone had a great time – event the elders, including Hiba’s parents, got in on the dancing action. The Embassy Plaza Hotel was full of joyous festivities until the early hours of the morning.

The Shaadi was the second of the wedding events hosted at the elegant Crowne Plaza Hotel. A red and gold wedding lehnga with exquisite embroidery made Hiba the most stunning of brides. All eyes were on her as she stood out against the contrast of Ahmed’s black sherwani. This was an emotional affair as the bride’s family shared heartfelt speeches about growing up with Hiba and the their hopes and dreams for her bright future. These moments are perfect for wedding photographers to understand the relationships and the story they are telling through their photos. The emotion remained high as the bride departed with her groom during the doli ceremony with the Qur’an Shareef.

The Pakistani wedding reception, known as the Walima, was the third and final event of this grand affair. Ahmed began the night by surprising his new wife with a Tiffany necklace and love note – a beautiful and private moment shared between the couple before they greeted their guests. The luscious landscape at the Laval Golf Club set the backdrop for the event

Coincidentally, the night of the Walima was also the birthday of the groom and his twin brother. After a beautiful speech by his brother describing their close relationship, Ahmed and his brother included all their guests in a birthday celebration complete with birthday cake!
