#nynaenzo - The Reception

Sunday, March 5, 2017

Done with the nikah ceremony, we now move on to the fun part of the wedding - the reception!

We were very humbled to have Ustaz Abd Hakeem and his qasidah team at our wedding. Very saddened by the news of him leaving Masjid Sultan late last year. That place hold a special place in me and danna's heart so not having him as the imam there anymore feels so different. In fact I was there last night and the bilal sang the selawat without him. I didn't enjoy it as much as I used to :(

Anyhoots, totally regret not taking a pic with him. Boo hooo

Walking into the hall with more eyes on me this time round turned me into a bundle of nerves!

Danna making his entrance with his entourage and the kompang boys from @akrabservices.

First hadang was from my brother and cousins. Standard lah my paternal family kalau tak hadang pengantin with pantun tak sah! I've been warned like a hundred times by the danna before the wedding that he doesn't want to be told to dance or sing, which is okay for me cos it's not my thing also. Not forgetting the fact that our favourite Ustaz is watching from the side so a bit paiseh also hor.

Sesi berpantun pun bermula. How I wish I was able to witness all this but..........

.....I mampu senyum belakang kipas je guise. & yup, I have both Ilah and Nora wimme on the dais!

Second hadang of the day - my girls! Sesi balas-balas pantun also.

The part when my girls asked for money and Naz said that they will have to dance first. CHET

Dapat $$ happy la dia...

Last but not least, hadang from mak andams!
Mak andam tak puas hati cos $ was given in a Peti Solek envelope lololol ish(q) ish(q), tak patot!

Shy shy cat part two hehe

Silat by the kompang boys.

Budak tak betul hahaha

Bro fist the halal version LOL

Next up was Akrab's performance..

..AND I ENJOYED IT SOOOO MUCH! I bagi dorang 5 bintang!

Ustaz Hakeem recited a few prayers for us.

& right after we did the whole salam with my parents and his grandmother, it's photo taking time!

Family of six now.  


So you know how I designed my own wedding invites, right? Well my dad has this collection of invites from my cousins dated since 2011 so one day I randomly took one to take a look. Coincidentally, the one I picked was from Azmi's wedding.(Azmi is danna's friend) It was then I realized we are second cousins! & Azmi only learned about this when he bumped into his parents at the wedding. I was there at their wedding back in 2012, and guess who the photographer was - my danna! Funny, huh!

Actually there were many other instances, like how my cousin and danna's cousin are actually BFFs. Just like our grandparents, which I mentioned about here. Many of my parents' friends are also friends with my FIL. Even my own friends informed me they spotted many familiar faces there.

Small world right!!

Poly girlfriends!

At last, the moment I've been waiting for ever since I walked into the hall!

As always, @puteri_wedding never disappoints but the only thing that I was disappointed with was the fact that we had less than 15 mins to enjoy our food. It was a mad rush and I had to get my girls to stand in front of the table to stop guests from coming up to us to take photo.

Details of my songket. Once again, I was the first bride to put this gorgeous piece on. Love it!

& before we know it, it's already time for my final outfit.

One last touch up.

One getting ready for the reception, the other looks like he's ready to nikah again hahaha

Fizi Woo on me, Benjamin Barker him.

We entered the hall together for the last time to the piano & cello cover of "A Thousand Years" and headed straight for the most redundant part of the wedding reception -  cake cutting.

 Yes this is that ONE & ONLY macaron I get to eat :')

With the paternal cousins.

My ibu(s) and ayah together with my best friends' siblings.

 The group of people who make you look good in picture and in person on your big day!


 Erm who is that why are your arms around him and not me? -___-

Details of my Fizi Woo dress.

We went to a few tables to say our goodbyes and thanks to our guests before leaving for our short photoshoot just outside the hall.

Behind the scene shot. Shy cat no more :p

And with that,  the wedding is over!! Nov 19th 2016 was perfect to me and of cos, it won't be possible without the all the great people working hard preparing for it. Once again, I’d like to thank our darling family and friends who spared some time for us to celebrate our big day. Your presence, wishes, help and ang pow$ mean a lot to us and we truly appreciate them a lot.

Much love!

xoxo, N
