Karima and Steven in March 2009

Karima and Steven, who live in Kuwait, celebrated their wedding in Steven’s home country. They exchanged their vows during a romantic wedding ceremony at Edinburgh’s registry office. I managed to take some nice photographs during the preparations in the morning. Even though there was a language barrier with Karima’s family who are from Algeria, we had lots of fun and I was offered some traditional Algerian wedding cake which Karima’s mum specially made and brought to Scotland. My husband spent his time with Steven and the guys and tried to keep everyone on time.

After the ceremony, we took some photographs on Edinburgh’s Calton Hill and then we joined the rest of the party at the Balmoral Hotel in Princess Street.
