Wedding of the Year!

Assalamualaikum,

Let me tell you my story. I had an exhausting but fascinating week last week. I was oncall on last Tuesday (21/06/2011) and I took a 3 days leave from wednesday onwards, till sunday for my siblings' wedding. It is the most important event in my family's diary this year. The wedding of my three siblings:-

Nadia (Ya) and Fahmi
Naqiuddin (Naqi) and Rafahiah
Najwa (Wa) and Khairil


It is going to be the Wedding of the Year!


I like to dedicate this entry for my mum who is an iron lady. She is the person that responsible in making this wedding a success. I admire her patient, determination, courage and dedication. I love you Ma.

My mum...Toh Puan Datin Wan Zaharah binti Wan Yahya


I arrived at my family's house in Chukai, Kemaman at 1030am. Most of the preparations were already settled by my father's staff from Pejabat DUN (Dewan Undangan Negeri) Chukai. The tents were all resurrected, tables and chairs were all already arranged. Inside the house, the sofa set was put aside, carpets cover all the floor. The interior designer people came around 2pm to set up the pelamin. *It was marvelous!!*

NADIA'S SOLEMNIZATION NITE
 
We received Fahmi's delegation at 830pm. It was such a big number of his family members that came that nite. It was like a show of force *laugh*

I was one of the official witnesses (saksi) for the solemnization ceremony, Iju was the second witness. Imam Zaki came a bit late that nite, around 9:15pm. The ceremony was a success. Fahmi aka Tomatoman got through after 2nd akad, just for forgetting to mention the word "yang" in the phrase "mas kahwin yang tersebut itu" during the first akad *laugh*.

"Never mind lah Fahmi, Nadia is your wife now"


Ya was so pretty and gorgeous. The make-up was perfect. The wedding gown and veil were nicely fitted. Fahmi is one lucky guy to be married to her. Tahniah Ya, I'm so proud and so happy for you!! Sayang Ya!
Then, it's time for food and pictures. We slept at 1am that nite.



Princess Nadia! - Pretty and Marvelous

"Tomatoman menjadi milik ku kini" Ya berkata di dalam hatinya...

My happy family...

Mak, Abah, Acik dan Ijah pun datang meraikan majlis dari Seremban...terima kasih!

Hasif...masam nyer muka dia!

NAJWA SOLEMNIZATION CEREMONY

On Friday, 23/06/2011, it was Najwa's turn to become the center of attention. She was like a princess, so beautiful, sweet and adorable. Najwa and Khairil know each other since they were in form 1. Their relationship had lasted for 10 years before they were engaged last year. AlhamdulilLah, they are now husband and wife.


Khairil's delegation arrived early at 10am. I became the MC as well as the witness for the ceremony. Ajib became the second witness. Khairil was so relax and confident. He handled the pressure really well. With one akad, Najwa officially became her soulmate. I am so happy for both of you! Sayang Wa jugak!


Khairil cool ajer...Sekali akad aje babe! Tahniah!

Akhir nya kau menjadi milik ku...chewah!

Ibu ku memberi restu...sayang Ma!

Bagai pinang dibelah dua!

Seronoknyer anak2 sedara Cik Wa dgn Uncle Khai ni!

"V" for Victory...Rania bukak lima2 jari!
After friday prayer, all of us depart to Kuala Terengganu for the most major event, the Wedding reception.


WEDDING RECEPTION

The event was held at Taman Tamadun Islam (TTI), Kuala Terengganu. It was such an attractive tourist attraction site with the Islamic monumens and Crystal Mosque. We arrived at Kuala Terengganu at 9pm, and at 930pm all of us were already at the hall for the rehearsal of the event.

Naqi and Rafahiah arrived from Bandung at 11pm. The all new besan were involved in the rehearsal together with my parents and the 3 couples.

Patik tumpang duduk tuanku....nak merasa duduk di kerusi di Raja

Pentas 3 pasangan mempelai megah berdiri


It was such a major and delicate event as the King, Tuanku Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin and Queen Nur Zahirah, together with Tuanku Puan Pahang, Tuanku Azizah, Undang Luak Rembau, Negeri Sembilan, and The Menteri Besar of Terengganu, YAB Dato' Seri Ahmad bin Said will be present. There are strict protocols that need to be followed - how to walk, who walks first, how to raise your hands, how to sit, what not to do and many other things...No mistake is allowed!


PASANGAN PENGANTIN OF THE NITE

Okay, let us put our pengantinssss into pictures. In summary we have 3 couples:

Nadia (my 6th sibling) dan Fahmi - Fahmi dengan matanya yang ayu kihkih! Jgn marah haa..

Naqi (7th sibling) dan Rafahiah - Aki asyik melentok aje kepala kat Yah...sayang nyer kat bini...

Najwa (8th) and Khairil - bagaikan cerita fairy tale...
Nak masuk jugak...pengantin lama hehehe 

It was an extravaganza nite. I am so proud of the Sultan. He symbolises the royal lineage, the history of Malay traditions and cultures in Malaysia. It must be uphold, observed, honoured and protected. Each of the three couples appeared smart and prominent in the traditional Malay costumes. The food was delicious. My dad delivered an excellent speech, addressing all the parties involved, welcoming all the new besan and most importantly, expressing her grattitute towards my mum for her never ending effort. We are very, very,very happy and satisfied to hear the acknowledgement.


The presence of the flower girls (my 2 daughters - Maisarah, Nabila, and their cousin - Sofea and Rania) together with their flower girls's Mama (a.k.a my wife hehehe) made the event very special, memorable and very close to my heart. All of them perform tremendously well! Thank you dear, you did a great job!!

Lovely Nabila in her flower girl dress!

Pretty Kak Long Maisarah in her dress!

Reserve flower girl - Sumayyah...maybe masa Cik Yatul Mayyah boleh action, kali ni boleh pakai baju aje...

My lovely wife, Shahnaz aka Mama Flower...

Pengantin-to-be in 20 years time...excited betul budak2 ni



Now my family is left with my youngest sister, Adik who is still single. The time will come for her wedding...I pray she will get a pious husband, ameen.


Adik sorang aje yang tinggal...(adik yg sebelah kiri yer rakan2, yg sebelah kanan tu dah ada 3 anak heheh)

Ida pun ada dengan baby Iman...Ma, congratz for the success!


Last but not least, special tribute to my cousin, Amru, who is also a professional photographer and acts as the photographer of this wedding. He owns a photography company in Shah Alam. I really recommend you to hire him for your function. But you have to be quick, early booking is advisable...dia macam goreng pisang panas, memang laku.You can reach him by this website: www.flickr.com/photos/amrufm


Amru - His character amuses everybody, his professionalism speaks for itself



That's all for now...time to sleep!
