Pakistan & India – in Sweet Harmony

Sharmine & Mutaqeen

My friend, Sharmine Aziz, recently got married to Mutaqeen Kapasi. Although I was unable to attend the wedding, I was blown away by the pictures of the festivities. Sharmine, being a Pakistani, had the first few wedding events in Islamabad, our gorgeous home town and capital of Pakistan, followed by the rest of the events in Pune, India, which is where the groom is from. 

The wedding was an unforgettable, thirteen-day long affair where, as this was not a cricket match, both Pakistanis and Indians united in celebration in both countries!

While in India, Sharmine and Mutaqeen  had the opportunity to be photographed by Pravin Talan. Talan, as you may know, is one of the most talented and contemporary Indian photographers who has travelled the world working with many models & international brands. His use of lights, natural elements and his composition is just perfect and although I liked each and every picture of his portfolio, this was one of my favorite photographs of Sharmine and Mutaqeen …

    Awww, OUH! I love it! – I’m going to forward this to the groom and to Pravin as well!

  2. Beautiful! Sharmine, you look gorgeous – what a lovely couple, mashallah!

  3. MashaAllah, such a gorgeous couple!
    My sister’s friend recently married an Indian Muslim from Mumbai. I find it pretty sweet. It’s irrelevent where your partner’s from, it’s all about the couple and whether or not they can make their relationship work. All the best to the newlyweds. 🙂
