A few weeks ago I was asked to photograph a Muslim engagement in Wembley. I wasn't really sure what that would involve so I asked loads of questions, brought a whole load of kit and made my way there.
I arrived early so the bride-to-be's brother drove me to where she was getting her hair done. Then we went back to her house and she finished getting ready.
I met her husband-to-be outside as he arrived with his family. They went into the garden and then the bride-to-be and her family came outside too.
We took a lot of group photos then we went inside and said some prayers. The groom-to-be got down on one knee and asked the bride-to-be to marry him. She said yes and everyone congratulated them, took pictures and exchanged gifts.
It was such a pleasure to be let into such a personal occasion and I'm so grateful to the family for allowing me to share the pictures.
