Mujib & Nadia's Wedding
Mujib met us in 2015 during one of his cousin’s wedding. Mujib and his family have been following our work since then and in 2018 they got in touch with us to take Picturthat to Qatar, Doha for his wedding (event held by the bride’s side).
For the Qatar event, they booked us for photography only. We were booked for two days, wedding and post-wedding shoot. It was an incredible experience, one to remember for sure.
Come summer 2019, Nadia and her family flew into the UK for their second event held by Mujib and his family. This took place all the way up in Edinburgh/Glasgow.
A day in Doha
As there was a small team booked in to fly out for this event it was challenging at times. We managed to overcome this by sticking to the itinerary and where we have additional time on our hand we used this to capture additional moments and create additional scenes.
An event in Edinburgh
You would think an event abroad would be harder than travelling to Edinburgh, think again. Nadia stayed over at a hotel near to the venue in Glasgow and Mujib was getting ready at his house in Edinburgh, we had two teams capturing from both sides.
We took Mujib and Nadia away from the venue while guests were eating to capture their portraits and general couple shots. We left a team at the venue to capture guests and general candid moments of them.
This was probably the most emotional event we have captured. I guess the emotions were that Nadia had to leave her family in Qatar and move to start her new journey in England.
“The team is always on hand to support. If you want someone to capture that special moment which you want to relive, use Picturthat!”
– Mujib & Nadia
The wedding day started with having both teams working at two locations. Edinburgh which is Mujib’s house and in Glasgow where Nadia was at a hotel. After capturing their pre-ready shots we then set off to the venue to capture the décor shots.
Mujib entered first and then Nadia made her grand entrance with her family. The team were delegated in a way where the one set would capture the bride and groom and the other the reactions of the guests as they both entered.
During the Bidai (where the bride says her goodbyes for the last time) we had the team capturing these emotional moments in a similar style, one team to focus on the bride and groom and the other on the family and friends as they see them walking out.
