Nikah & Shangri-La Reception: Fariz & Nadia

By 19/09/2012 2 Comments

Lovely. Down to earth. That’s how I would describe Fariz and Nadia. Johan and I were glad that we were given the honour and privilege to capture their special moments from their berinai ceremony to their akad nikah and finally to their grand dinner reception.

We kick start this post with some pictures from Nadia’s berinai ceremony. The berinai ceremony involves the staining of the bride’s hands and feet with henna, which is similar to the mehndi ceremony in an Indian wedding. Usually guests participate in the event too. It was held at Nadia’s beautiful home…

Nadia you looked amazing!

Beautiful designs on the hands…..such intricate patterns.

Next up is the Akad Nikah. It was held at Nadia’s home too but with a completely different and amazing decor set up! Her home was transformed into an indoor garden. What a romantic setting!

Thumbs up! You did well Fariz!

The dinner reception was held at the grand Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur. Purple seems to be a very ‘in’ colour! I adore the purple hues of the pelamin which was extremely captivating.

Don’t you agree that Fariz and Nadia look every inch a Raja sehari?

Malaysia’s famous celebrity songstress, Sheila Majid was there to entertain the guests.

It was indeed such an awesome setting fit for a king! Not forgetting, Nadia was such a beauty to behold.

On behalf of the Stories team we wish both of you an awesome marriage!
