A Regal Affair

Ella Bella's sister tied the knot last weekend. The akad nikah (solemnisation ceremony) took place on Saturday night at the bride's house and it was followed by a grand wedding reception held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on Sunday night.

The bride, Nik Azura (Nikky or Azura), and the groom, Erwan, looked amazing on both nights but of course Nikky was the centre of everyone's attention. Be prepared to be mesmerised while viewing these pictures*.

The Wedding Reception | 11 July 2010
Theme Kesultanan Melayu Melaka (Traditional Royal Malaccan Kingdom)
The reception hall was decorated with all things traditional - Malaysian fruit centrepieces, dangling golden leaves, olden day-inspired umbrellas

The bride is on her way

Walking down the aisle


A queen awaiting her king. In the Malay culture, the bride and groom are considered king and queen of the day

"I'm almost there, honey!"

"Finally with my beautiful queen."

By far the best traditional Malay food I have ever tasted

Sautéed bananas with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. Absolutely delish.

Notice the colour co-ordination? It was a total coincidence!

Yay, a picture with the king and queen!
(Why do I have the darndest feeling that all of us ladies were wearing 'Ruby Woo' by MAC?)

At the end of the night I remembered thinking, "Wow, Nikky's married now.... it doesn't feel like it was too long ago when she was my senior in high school." Time really does fly and understandably, the most popular question directed towards the eligible bachelors and bachelorettes at the reception was - "So when are you getting married?"

Here's to a joyous and everlasting marriage for Nikky and Erwan. May your life together bring you more happiness you could ever imagine!
Selamat Pengantin Baru. Semoga bahagia ke anak cucu.
