Ellora + Esben: Day 2, Nikah

And we’re back! Yet another amazing day spent covering Ellora and Esben’s marriage celebration. This day is called Nikah. It is the Muslim equivalent of the everyday Church ceremony. Only the closest friends and family were present a this time when the couple pledged their commitment of marriage before God. Ellora’s uncle performed the ceremony and he formally and traditionally asked for their consent before the marriage could take place. And luckily, they both agreed! ;) It was a very exciting and emotional experience for everyone.

Ellora. Looked. Absolutely. Stunning!

We couldn’t get over how beautiful, colorful and intricate all the designs were on the jewelery and clothing!
