Reception: Fauzul & Izzat

A week later, another wedding reception took place in Bangi, Selangor for the guests of Fauzul’s and his parents’. True to Malay culture, this time, the bride’s family pays a visit to the groom’s reception in a ceremony the locals called “Majlis Sambut Menantu”.

My favorite shot of the day. Yeah!!!!

Something quite unique to Johorean custom, during a wedding, the bride and groom is expected to share their joy by tossing some coins together with sweets for the kids to collect. Just that in this case, Fauzul manage to pull that session with style. :)

Siblings have the tendency to express their happiness in group photos. So does Fauzul and Izzat.

And I do mean that for both sides of the family.

Thank you Fauzul and Izzat for the two weekends bundled with joy and laughter. You two made a great couple.

Cheers to that!

Solemnisation: Izzat & Fauzul

Well, my latest wedding assignment was for this sweet couple, Izzat and Fauzul aka Pau. We were introduced to each other by Fauzul’s sister, Fatin last year and after months of waiting, the glorious day finally came by. This time, I headed south to Seremban, Negeri Sembilan to capture their solemnisation ceremony which was held in the same day with their reception. It was a beautiful morning, with the sun shining so bright, with the sky so blue. So before we get to the latter part, I’m sharing some images from the auspicious morning.

Reception : Idzam & Izza

The next day, the reception was held at Menara Tun Mustapha, another prominent building in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Both Idzam and Izza were being prepared at home before driven to the venue.

Some of the common accessories for the groom in transforming them into a warrior or what we call “Pahlawan”. Left is the head gear, “Tanjak” while the right one is our famous local weapon of distruction, the ‘Keris”. :D

930_izza_reception_props04.jpg

930_izza_reception_preps01.jpg

This is one of the things a bestman of the groom should be assisting with, helping the groom secure the “Samping” with a “Bengkung” so that everything looks handsomely neat like a well, warrior of course!

 This here people, is how a Malay bride checks out her own husband gracefully in a ceremony.

The ceremony would not be completed without some traditional dance performance.

And if you are lucky enough, the bride (which used to be a dancer herself) and the groom would hit the floor and join the fun.

After all the important items in the ceremony are checked, we headed out for a short portraiture session.

All in all, Idzam and Izza make one sweet husband and wife. Because of that, I can’t help myself ending this sweet update with a photo of Idzam, when the day almost ended.

Cheers people!

Solemnization : Idzam & Izza

This next assignment took me all the way to East Malaysia, a town called Kota Kinabalu in Sabah state. This particular client of mine has witnessed my colourful photography journey from the humble P&S camera (it was the Panasonic Lumix TZ1) to the days of DSLR. I met Izza back in the university when both of us were in the same department during an orientation program. Oh wait, you might have even noticed her from the photo banner at the top of this blog (fancy a guessing game now?). It took me her wedding just to be able to land my feet on the beautiful town of KK as I do not have much friends coming from that part of Malaysia. Idzam on the other hand, we just met during our ice-breaking session in KL. He may look so darn serious at times, but he can surely crack some jokes to live up anyone’s mood when he’s around. ;) I shall bring you through their solemnization ceremony now. Enjoy!

Once everything settled down, we went to Masjid Bandaraya that located nearby Izza’s place for some quick outdoor portraits just before the rain starts pouring.

I felt so blessed to be part of this history, Idzam and Izza. These two love birds can’t even contain their happiness, looking at the amount of smiles they threw to each other through out the day. So much in love. And that’s why I love this job.
