Ismaili Mosque, Play Food & Wine Wedding : Ferenaz + Adil

When Ferenaz and Adil first began planning their wedding, Ottawa’s new Ismaili Mosque on Conroy Road was still under construction, and they had the privilege of being the very first couple to be married in this gorgeous facility.  Ferenaz and Adil are extremely involved with the local Ismaili community in Ottawa, they volunteered countless hours overseeing, assisting, and advising in the construction of their new Mosque.  In fact, when we met for their engagement photos earlier this summer, they said they had been up until 5am the night before, working on some final details.

Over 400 invited guests witnessed the beautiful ceremony, which went flawlessly.  This wedding had a few firsts for me, not only was it the first Ismaili Muslim Wedding I’ve had the privilege of shooting, but it was also the first wedding where there were 3 receptions – the first was at the Mosque, immediately after the ceremony, the second was a dinner for close family and friends, and there was a party at Play Food & Wine afterwards, for the “younger crowd”.  It was also the first wedding where I’ve had to witness planned littering – where the new bride and groom are supposed to place the pieced of the smashed clay pots into a fast-running stream or river (we did this at Rideau Falls, and I’m sure there is a lot worse than some small pieces of clay in the Ottawa River).  🙂

The day was perfect, and laced with a mix of tradition and fun.  We did some photos before the ceremony, and were able to get a few more after the sun went down, before receptions #2 and #3.  Congratulations Ferenaz + Adil – all the best for this next chapter in your lives together!
