Sufi MAJLIS BERBEDAK at Residence of Pehin Penyurat Maidin in Kota Batu.

Friends (and/or) collegues from work are in sync when they share their love from BIBD.

Bride seemed relieved this 2nd function (Berbedak) was mainly over to relax for photographs.

Special bowls made of gold plating are prepared for the Berbedak Cermony on the Pelamin.

Sufirena Binti Pehin Penyurat Maidin (23rd May 2010) Majlis Akad Nikah

SUFI now officially completed the 'main ceremony' is congratulated by a happy grandmother.

With one breath Putra makes it sound easy and easy for his (almost-future-uncle-in-law-khatib) to declare the seal of marriage legal and binding. Followed by smiles and giggles always after this auspicous event, family members crowd the main entrance hall and living area to witness the AKAD NIKAH and then BERIAN followed by BEDAK BEDAK MANDI.

With just one breath ('Satu Lafaz') Shahrin managed to sqeeze wife's name(s) during the Nikah ceremony on 12th March 2010.

A much more relaxed night tonight and everyone look fresh and well rested and happy (especially with a secret dinner menu that wowed the guests into a great appetite). The Karaoke was there from the beginning of Ambil-Ambilan but guests and even the newly weds only realised the 'Magic Mic' and 'Easy Catalog' made singing really fun whilst everyone joined in.
I have never seen so many people wanting to take photos with the bride and groom on the stage on this day. I had a crew of shutter bugs to capture the moment from the start, but they said they felt it when family, friends, colleagues, and everyone else were eager to share the limelight. An AV crew had to add a place of camera controls firing away stage way because it was so busy ( while I directed all the shots and angles as much as I can)
The exterior landscape of IGS College Brunei is very convenient for the groom's arrival and well shaded with an over head entrance roof. Here we see the procession begin with 'Pusing Naga' ( Dragon's Twirl ).
Presentation of the a Pelamin was well prepared with a 50 foot runway sidelined with decorative flower posts.
To avoid any hassles or mishaps we came as early as a full day ahead to set up another P.A.System right beside the stage (pelamin) adjacent to washroom doors, and had two guys in charge to help out with the volume to be controlled by 'Tausyeh'. ON D-Day, the hall was still empty at 10:25am and we had enough time to get ready with any last minute adjustments until 11:15 to 11:45am the guests kept flowing in and Hallow Buffet Seats become seamingly full. A reserve accomodation was made within a galzed enclosure ( the room with a theatre stage) which started empty but was filled up right to every chair just before the arrival of the groom and family.

In attendance on behalf of Bride's mother (Dyg Hajjah Habibah binti Haji Mohd.Hussain-far left in pink) were close relatives and relations from Singapore and old frends of the family.

A Khatam Al Qur'an session was held right after Friday Prayers at No:578 Kebangsaan Lama just prior to the main event which is the Akad Nikah and Berian (held sometime between 2:30-5:00pm). With a single breathe, the groom, Awg.Mohd. Shahrin Bin Abdullah, declared his 'Lafaz' with ease and comfort. Everything went on time and guests were ushered to have afternoon refreshments at the tents outside. Photo taking kept us busy throughout the entire afternoon as friends and family are eager to congratulate the newly weds or officially married couple.

Ak. Md. Alli Putera & Sufirena gets ingaged today. (Dec.18th 2009)

Another close friend of PUTRI ZARA gets ingaged in Kampong Kilugus (en-route via Kota Batu) on Friday afternoon 18th December 2009. It started out as pretty heaty afternoon when guests began pouring in the function at around 2:45pm to 3:45pm. Hosts made sure all of 'Sufi's Side' waited in comfort awaiting the arrival of the 'Groom's Side' emerging at around 4:30pm. The actual engagement ceremony only took a mere few minutes with formalities in presentation of local customs and a recital of a 'doa selamat'. Followed by the engagement ceremony was a photo session with the very eager new-to-be-husband-and-wife with their friends, relatives, their engagement tokens, while guests were ushered to enjoy a late afternoon 'stickless satay' served with traditional satay sauce and packed rice ketupat, then two selection of noodles, beef, and assorted desserts and refreshments.
