Rummana and Mick’s wedding highlights
Newspaper journalists Rummana and Mick met at a party – and their love story grew from there. The wedding was held at the bride’s home with nearly 80 friends and family in attendance for the traditional Muslim ceremony as well as a bounty of food and friendships.
But wait, there’s more! Their big party is later this summer with a guest list of nearly 600, so we are really looking forward to that event as well. Congratulations to Rummana and Mick, and thank you for trusting us to capture your perfect day : )
