Eh Da Kahwin Ke!! Part 2

Ok I da ader mood to blog..still on leave/hospitalisation leave. I was supposed to be on my operation but it got cancelled since I am still recovering from fever,flu and bad cough.

Let’s talk about my WEDDING! I just got back the mood coz hubby was watching youtube on all our wedding videos done by our wonderful family of Akrab Kompang and Dendang Mutiara Dikir Barat.

19 Dec 2015~ The awaited day of #barnana marking a history of #barnanajourney. That morning at 1030am was our nikah… I woke at 6am to prepare myself bathed and stuff. MUA came nearing to 8am. At this point Mr.A had gone off and went to have breakfast at Telok Ayer witg his org kuat! (That was what i heard!) Sucha a bochap couple eh…org lain da panic kita dua chill je…I was busy getting ready at the same time berzikir…it calms down the nerves alot!
By 915am I was ready to go and my family were gone! Lencah pe! They were out by 9am..mind you nikah 1030am at Masjid An-nur…cam nak gerak gy JB..I went out of the room with no family members around…hmmmmmmm thanks!

So yea I was travelling with my gf in her car to masjid…eating biscuits and talking…busy story telling..Al maklum my brunei cousin was there and its been ages we met! So lepaskan rindu la skali…busy eh!

At masjid! After berpantang for 3 weeks or so..i SAW Mr.A back and it got me excited…tgk belakang abang berbaju kurung bersamping songket..tak handsome ke?! Of coz la handsome kan! I sat down. This was at 10am. How punctual was everybody…Kadi came early as well! WOW!!! we were at main prayer hall Masjid An-nur..

Within 5 minutes, formalities were confirmed. And the ceremony began! Sekali lafaz yang super loud and clear. Mr.A became my official HUSBAND…WOOOHOOOOO

Love how our songkets colour pop out! Its customised made..i got my baju tailored in JB. It was a happy occassion. ALHAMDULLILAH!

We suck at taking official lovey photos…muka annoying la please!!!

Sorry on shaky photos as we were laughing too much…these are not my bridesmaids! But these ladies are my support system! PEARL FC LADIES…WAGS(wives and gfs) of Dendang Mutiara which tudungs are sponsored by me..Alhamdullilah…they look like ready to nasyid! again..and I have my other two good friends beside me.

After Nikah Mr.A siap at his bestman place while I proceed with my siap at CC backstage room. Thank goodness for awesome aircon I was cool and calm. This is where sanggul lintang is placed. I demanded a less extravagant outlook! But nevertheless as painful! And berat.

Pantang petua by my MUA i was to think positively and keep having nice tots to my head. NEVER ever say its painful. Again alhamdullilah i forgot I was donning it. It felt comfortable heavy but not extreme.

I even had time to nap while waiting for Mr.A to come. With my sanggul lintang i slept for 10 mins hahahahha!

At the sound of kompang, i was behind the kipas MUA not knowing what was happening but you can catch the video here:
#Barnana BerArak 19 Dec 2015

The boys silat and cried. I was holding back tears. These boys were literally under my care . I literally hold back when my fav boy silat and cried so much. Ibarat “mommy” proud moments!

After performance we were flooded with dear friends taking photos with us. Colleagues and friends came which just make me sincerely appreciative and happy. Photo taking was overshot we ended 1st half near to 4pm! When I was supposed to be out for 2nd outfit but I did not want to compromise and cut short meeting up with my friends. So it was alot of play by ear moments.

Vendors were on full force. Guests came blessed with a glorious spread of choices of buffet from SMR…10 choices for air.. desserts were to die for! Makanan jangan cakap main staples were so sedap! Thumbs up! I am a fussy eater..and this was up to my standard. I had guests saying they felt like they were at hotel buffet eh.. yela makcik and pakcik nie semua rezeki masya allah..thank you so much! It is so nice to hear it.

Epure flavoured ice cream was on the ball as well! Gooooood service awesome toppings…very very nice vendors. They also served guests at the tables with order taking as well. AWESOME!!

DAINTY CANDY my wedding cake was sooo pretty and super yummy!!

The day ended with us rushing off from wedding at 530pm to Woodlands Waterfront to catch the sunset moments.
I had 90% bridesmaid involvement….and this was our stress relieved moments for once!!

The flow of wedding was smooth sailing. EVERYONE WAS HAPPY! Some cockups but I was always involved via Whatsapp and despite everything..My BMs ran the show smoothly…thank you ladies and my babyboy!

I have been in discussion with my photographer, passed on ideas such as following;

Engagement Shoot Inspiration: 15 Couple Poses You've Just Got To Try!

Wedding Photoshoot - Night time lights

Extremely excited! I can’t wait of coz I have to always keep in mind that there is batas to jaga no lovey dovey photos and stuff..belom HALAL babe! Like my uncle keep pesan “Jangan ikot the western so much”

Nevertheless Elfean, my photographer from Nifty Degree is sooo gila-gila…after showing all my ideas, he was requesting all these

1) Mini handgrill
2) lap-lip battery
Alot more actually I could not stop laughing coz the jokes were overwhelming as well.. I could not imagine why he would need that but those were his requests.

I thanked Pinterest for providing me with loads of ideas as well! I tak SABAR Jah! for this Friday..

Photographers excited..videographer excited…my friend who will driving us around also excited! That’s sooo awesome when you are working with friends for your wedding..it makes memories feel so much more memorable and SWEEEEET!!

Photoshoot Locations

I will be having a pre-photoshoot with Mr.A + cousins + 2nd sis, hopefully with Akrab Boys as well. I love to do things in groups coz it looks more fun than just me and him in photos nak lovey dovey. Blueks! Maybe a few photos but not all.

So I was asking my dear cousins where to do a photoshoot. 1 suggested in botanic gardens, fair enough it is one huge place I could definitely play around with.

After that, I cannot think of other wonderful places. So here are my thoughts of some other locations which signifies us.

1) Botanic gardens
– We do picnics at times and loves just lying around looking at the skies

My fave shot I've shot so far! #wedding #photography #malay #traditional #outdoor #singapore #botanic #garden #silhouette #love
2) Dempsey hills
–  I love hanging out at Dempsey as Ben & Jerry’s is awesome there..super chilled
3) Singapore Flyer
– Our official 1st date was on the Singapore flyer

I have tried contacting IKEA, another favourite spot for us but apparently we cannot do photoshoots on Public Holidays and Weekends! Boooooo! It would have been wonderful if we do it there.

So another idea is supermarkets…because I spend tonnes of hours in supermarkets. Mina suka grocery shopping and that is my therapy session. So I cannot think of wonderful supermarkets that is convenient, I might be approaching AgroBazaar in Arab st area for supermarket shots. We could do lane shots as well!

Lotsa prepping as I am doing it loads of the itinerary planning on my own….

Videography Sealed!!!

So its almost end of December and as mentioned me and fiance supposed to seal the deal for our videography..abd we DID!!!

Well we have selected Bizkode as our wedding videography vendor! Sooo excited gila…coz i am actually working with my own group of friends…

image

I da pilih package Cinematography! Its sooo cheap and all the required things i would need! 🙂 da settle da video! left to seal with photography lak! But i would settle that in January instead..and I would be done depositing all my core vendors…
Unfortunately Bizkode is fully booked for 2015 & 2016 afterwhich wedding videography are out of their jobscope…sedih kan! Baru nak promote dorang…well they will be focusing on TV video production lak…So all the best for them and I am 1 YEAR left to the WEDDING!!!

On a sidenote! AKRAB KOMPANG got invited to TV3 on 23 December on Malaysia Hari Ini (MHI)! For an interview and performance… Alhamdullilah…due to the viral FB posts we have receive enquiries on overseas weddings…this is ultimately good news and such a motivation for us to strive forward!
