Dinner Reception: Mandarin Oriental Hotel, KL

A few months ago, I photographed Adam and Dalilah’s engagement event, held at her beautiful home. Considering the engagement event was done really tastefully, I could not wait for the nikah and wedding reception to see what they had planned. I was not disappointed, for on that day, I was greeted by beautiful decorations that satisfied my taste buds and my shutter happy finger. Adam and Dalilah were surrounded by friends and family who were extremely warm and who obviously loved them very much.

I felt a little sad for them though that Adam’s mum was not able to attend the wedding as she fell ill during that period. Luckily for her, the videography team recorded every moment and she even witnessed the event online as it happened.

The dinner reception was held at the Mandarin Oriental for a large group of 800 people. There were royalty and VIPs present for the dinner that night. The ballroom was transformed into an elegant and grand space – the entire ballroom was covered with dark purple curtains. I love the colour theme and I think purple just looks great in every wedding! (That was why my wedding had a purple and white theme too!).

Hope you like this series of images, as much as we enjoyed creating them! To start off, here are some more decorations from the day of the nikah ceremony.

Some of the many hantaran that were exchanged that day.

Dalilah, you look gorgeous!

And Adam, you looked a little nervous! :)

And now, some dinner reception images…

Love the main table decorations…

And this amazing cake by Delectable by Su and of course, who can go wrong with Jimmy Choo’s?

Look who was the emcee… Yasmin Yusoff…

Congratulations, Adam & Dalilah! Thank you for giving us the honour to photograph your wedding and for booking us even though you did not meet us in person till much later. I appreciate your warmth and thoughtfulness towards the team. Have an awesome marriage.
