Asriel and Aslim’s Asian Wedding in Whitchurch

In Chris Francis Photography Wedding Blog by Chris FrancisLeave a Comment

Asriel and Aslim had a Muslim Ceremony in Whitchurch Rugby Club and I was privileged to be asked to document the day for them.

Asriel got ready at her mums house in Grangetown where I met them to start the day and the ceremony was held in Whitchurch Rugby Club. It was the first time I had covered a Muslim wedding ceremony. I was aware that it was similar to a Christian Wedding where vows were given and certificates are signed and I love new experiences and challenges, so I was very excited to capture the event. When I arrived the Imam was very accommodating to me and welcomed the documentation of the event. It was certainly similar to a Christian wedding, with the events switched around a little and the imam sitting between the couple during the ceremony. Some beautiful words were said and although Islamic, which I was unable to fully understand, it was poetic and felt very kind and forever. I really enjoyed the experience.

After the ceremony we went for a short walk and took some portraits of Asriel and Aslim where there was some lovely light gifted to us.

The party continued later on that day with amazing food provided during the evening and into the night with a local reggae soundsystem playing out. I was so tempted to stay and party!

Congratulations guys. Can I come to the next party please 🙂


I am only able to share a few of these images as the happy couple requested privacy for the photographs being available to the public.  I try to respect my clients requests at all times. If you do not want your images shared please just ask and I will ensure that your request is met.
