The Wedding Film Of Zainab and Mouhanid
As a wedding cinematographer, it is always a delight to film a wedding. However, Zainab and Mouhanid gave me the privilege of shooting two wedding films in one thanks to their two-day Iraqi Muslim wedding celebration. The bride Zainab and groom Mouhanid certainly showed their personality and style with two days filled with fun, family and friends. Luton Hoo – The Country House Wedding Of Zainab and Mouhanid The first day of the wedding was the civil ceremony and the Nikah. Both of which took place at the resplendent Hoo Hotel In Luton. The Luton Hoo is a luxurious five-star hotel set in stunning surroundings and a magnificent 18th -century mansion house façade. The grounds of Hoo Hotel were perfect for wedding cinematography as they allowed Zainab and Mouhanid to explore the infinitely romantic setting on the expansive 1,065-acre estate. For a country house wedding, Zainab and Mouhanid couldn’t have chosen anywhere more romantic thanks to the breath-taking views across the estate, or the marble statues and intricate decorations inside the Grade 1 listed mansion house. For their wedding film, it was brilliant to uncover all of the beautiful shots that the mansion house and its estate provided. What’s more, with Zainab stole the show in her beautiful royal blue dress complete with a white jewel-encrusted headscarf that sparkled in the sunshine wherever she walked. The ceremony featured plenty of heartfelt speeches from family members and loved ones. All of which show their joy for the occasion and how special the wedding of Zainab and Mouhanid is. “Two souls educate each other and complete themselves”
“The husband and wife need to share openly. Beyond anything, they have to be caring friends to each other.” As well as speeches, the ceremony also included captivating music. Zainab and Mouhanid chose the guitarist, Zana Asia, to perform. His music was so beautiful; I had to include it in the wedding video too. Principal London – The Wedding Reception Of Zainab and Mouhanid Day two of the wedding elebrations of Zainab and Mouhanid took place in the Principal Hotel in London. This was the wedding reception, taking place one week after the ceremony. The Grade II listed building in the heart of Bloomsbury was the perfect location for family and friends to meet, gather and celebrate in style. It was a joy to film all of family and friends of Zainab and Mouhanid coming together and celebrating. Everywhere you look there were laughter, smiles and loving embraces. It was clear that all of the guests couldn’t be more thrilled for Zainab and Mouhanid and their marriage together. With stunningly designed candlelit tables, all the guests took their seats, chatting, laughing and sharing stories about the couple. When everyone was in place, the bride and groom made an exciting entrance complete with an arch of swords and dancers welcoming them into their wedding ceremony. After the meal, and the cutting of the beautiful four-tiered wedding cake, the dancefloor filled with happy, jubilant guests. It was certainly a fun-filled wedding day that from releasing balloons to a full band playing, really had it all.
