Just before Christmas, I had the pleasure of photographing Aisha & Dave’s intimate candlelit ceremony at their beautiful home in Edmonton. Aisha & Dave were surrounded by their closest friends and family who witnessed them make a commitment to each other to spend the rest of their lives together. They wanted to keep things simple and weren’t interested in throwing a big lavish wedding, so with the help of some close friends, they were able to put together a beautiful wedding in just a few short days. They wanted the photography to focus on the ceremony and candid moments rather than formal or posed photographs of them together.
One of Aisha’s close friends Sonia (Stylebar by Sonia Sajnani), helped coordinate the wedding and also looked after her hair and makeup. While she was getting ready, Sonia surprised Aisha with a beautiful custom headpiece that she had seen once in a store. Sonia had let me in on the surprise when I arrived at the home and it was such a sweet gesture of friendshipÂ that was so much fun to capture.
Here are a few photographs from their intimate candlelit wedding that took place in the front room of their home in Edmonton.
