My Cousin's Wedding: The Actual Wedding :)

I haven’t blogged in a while between a very slow, dodgy laptop and life being so busy. I find that when I have lots to share and it will take ages, it puts me off from starting.  So, to catch up, rather than long blog posts, I thought would share a few pictures of what has been going on with a few words. Hopefully that will help clear my head to write something more interesting insh’Allah ๐Ÿ˜Š
You can also keep up with everything on my Instagram page, and via my Insta stories – I have a lot of fun capturing things for this, and it feels much easier to engage with sisters in this way.

My cousin’s wedding was just before Eid and we had a lot of fun dressing up, eating good food and catching up with family.  The bride was beautiful – her make up was perfect and I loved that she had a bog smile on her face the whole day and didn’t let anything bother her mash’Allah. 

Interestingly, there was a party in another hall at the same venue for a Pakistani film launch, so some of the actor’s randomly came up for a photoshoot…

My outfit from Malika Boutique, really nice quality and really reasonable.

Got the boys kurtay in the colour scheme of jewel tones.  Of course they insisted on wearing them with their trainers.

Henna on the brides little sister:

All of the guys:

The ladies: my mum, sisters, sister-in-law and daughter. We joked we looked like the Power Puff girls with the red, blue and green.

Lots of nice details and the cakes were a feast for the eyes, I never actually got to taste any!

I thought the wedding favours were a nice touch – pure, local honey and Zamzam water:

Lots of good food:

This fruit tree got demolished – the little ones were making mini fruit kebabs for themselves.

The bride looked like a doll, may Allah SWT keep her always happy, smiling and contented insh’Allah.

It was mostly a nice wedding, with a lot of good cheer and wishes for the bride and groom.  It says something about their lovely natures that not one person in the room could have wanted anything but the best for them.

I did struggle at this wedding with the bad behaviour of a very small number of people.  I had to keep my mouth firmly shut and my tongue polite, because I don’t believe in causing drama at other people’s weddings.  As my siblings know I can be very fierce and for all of my love and kindness, there is a side of me that will rain down lightning and thunderstorms on your head if you cross a line with me.  So I had to reign that side in and be on my best behaviour despite the rudeness and unkindness of a few others.

Well the wedding is over now, and I don’t have to be nice if I don’t want to ๐Ÿ˜Š
