Juwaid & Farheen

Read all about Juwaid and Farheen's love story below:


How did your love story begin?

Our love story began at a friend’s party where we felt our first spark of chemistry and from that moment on, we grew closer and fell in love over time.

Tell us about the proposal

We went to Moyos restaurant at Ushaka overlooking the beach. Juwaid handed me roses and a love letter he wrote for me. He got down on one knee and proposed. He even got the waiters involved to video the proposal.

How did you find the planning process? Did you make use of

It was relatively simple and stress-free as we had a very intimate wedding with only 30 people. I used SA weddings for inspiration and ideas.

Where did you draw your planning inspiration from?

We used Pinterest, various wedding websites and Instagram

What was the most memorable and special part of your wedding day?

Having our loved ones to be part of our special day. The reaction of our loved ones when we entered the venue will forever be imprinted in our memories.

What was your wedding theme (if you had one) and why did you choose it?

Our theme was rose gold and elegant. We wanted it to be classy with a hint of modern colours.

What was the inspiration behind your wedding dress as well as the bridesmaids' dresses?

Elegant and vintage with lace and beadwork (my dress). My bridesmaids got to choose their own dresses, own style, colour, etc.

Your décor and flowers: Do you have a specific reason why you chose what you did?

My engagement ring was rose gold so that was my inspiration for the décor and flowers. We picked all the décor items and the flowers that complemented the ring.

Did you incorporate any DIY items?

We designed and printed the wedding menus in addition to the e-invitation we sent out to our guests.

What song did you choose for your opening dance and why?

We are Muslim thus having an opening dance is not traditional.

What is your favourite, will-never-forget memory of your big day?

Seeing each other for the first time as husband and wife.

Any advice for other brides-to-be/grooms-to-be who are busy planning their big day?

Our advice is:
- Enjoy every moment of it while still having quality time with your partner where there is no wedding talk at all.

- Have a budget and try to stick to it.

- Get a good photographer and make up artist. Your wedding pictures will be a lifetime remembrance of one of the best days of your lives.

Did you go on honeymoon and if so, where did you go?

We went to Protea Fire and Ice Hotel at Melrose Arch.
