This was for an engagement ceremony of a client in Taman Sungai Kantan, Kajang. She booked me a few days before her engagement ceremony with a IIUM graduate. It was a truly beautiful ceremony, where the decorations were made by her uncle who is a wedding planner. Many relatives and friends came to witness the joyous event for both her and her fiancé.
If you would like to view more photos of my make-up work, please log on to my website www.abayasuraya.com and click BRIDAL MAKE-UP under the MAKE-UP EXPLORATION link.
Photos below were taken around the ceremony. Might be useful for those who are soon to have engagement or wedding ceremonies. Since I love bridal gifts arrangements or hantaran thus I am starting a new label in my blog which is Bridal Ideas. Hope you will like it! =)
The backdrop and seat for my client, where her future mother-in-law puts on the engagement ring for her. The backdrop is gorgeous using cloth flowers which look real, kudos to her wedding planner uncle.
By the way since I love her uncle's work so much, my client told me that her uncle is Razak Ahmad of Floral Etc. in AmpWalk. Oh my God, I've been a fan of his since so long, ever since I watched about him on Nona. He is one Malay that I am so proud with his achievements. He used to work in Hollywood and had done flower arrangements for numerous events and his clients were Hollywood celebrities as well such as Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Cameron Diaz etc. As for local celebrities and socialites, he had done flower arrangements for the weddings of Datin Norjuma Habib Mohamed & for the daughter of Naza Motor's late CEO, Tan Sri Nasimudin.
So yes, of course everybody love to have fresh flowers for their events especially weddings, but it's only a matter whether you have the right amount of kaching kaching! :p His flower arrangements for events start from RM 3000 onwards.

The tepak sireh or betel leaves set; very synonim with the Malay culture especially for marriage matters. If the engagement is cancelled, the man's side will return the tepak sireh as a sign of breaking off with the woman.
The man's side came with the golden trays while the female side prepared the baby blue and violet trays.
Telekung (Female praying attire) and tasbih (rosary). I think it is a fresh idea to put the gifts in some sort of 'treasure' chest. Nice.
The Sugar Cookies for the guests as a thank you note. I think they are really adorable and fun looking :)
