Sometimes it’s the little things that make all the difference.
Shaf and Naz could have been a “love at first sight” story, but wires were crossed, signals were mixed and both ended up thinking the other just wanted to be friends.
So what was it that finally brought these two together? Noodles. Naz had told Shaf she wasn’t feeling well, so being the thoughtful man that he is, Shafeeq raced over to drop off the ultimate “get well soon food” hot and spicy noodles, which he left in her letterbox.
On the 25th November 2015, Naz finally picked up the courage and asked Shaf to take her out for ice cream. Their first official date.
On the 25th November 2016 – Shafeeq got down on one knee and asked Naz to marry him. (Well technically he only got as far as getting on one, and before he could even ask Naz said “YES!”)
And exactly one year after that, in front of all their friends and family – they were married!
Shafeeq and Naz wanted to acknowledge each of their families wedding traditions, so a few days before their wedding they had “Shanzzy wedding day number one”- they managed to blend both of their different cultures beautifully into an amazing celebration and we were stoked to be able to capture this part of their wedding.
Shafeeq and Nazneen – thank you both so much for inviting us to be a part of your wedding day. There are many, many more photos (and your film!) to come.
