Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa Presents a Beautiful Malay Wedding

Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa Presents a Beautiful Malay Wedding

Shangri-La’s Sayang Resort & Spa, Penang was filled with a festive atmosphere during the grand wedding ceremony of Najieb Ariff bin Datuk Seri’ Nazir Ariff and Wan Hasnida binti Wan Shuib.

The traditional Malay wedding ceremony with a modern touch was held on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in the Grand Pelangi Ballroom, which was entirely decorated with pretty fresh roses in cream, beige and light pink colours along the floor and as a centrepiece on every table. The table cloths, seat covers and pelamin (bridal dais) featured the same colour theme. The guests in attendance were the ‘who’s who’ in the Penang business fraternity and close relatives of both the bride and groom.

The groom’s relatives were dressed in baju melayu, while the ladies were in baju kurung in coordinated light-purple shades. The presence of the couple’s family and friends, the joyous occasion and the artistic decorations made the beautiful Saturday a highly memorable one. The banquet served pearl grouper, Oriental dishes, a noodle station by a ‘Ramen’ chef and desserts featuring a wide selection of sweet and savoury styles, plus many scrumptious decadent treats.

Family, friends and guests feasted on a sumptuous buffet of local and international delicacies while being serenaded with good music as they, importantly, joined the bride and groom in celebrating the beginning of a wonderful life together.

The marriage of the handsome couple was solemnised in the ballroom itself during the akad nikah (solemnisation ceremony) witnessed by religious officials, family members and guests. The highlight of the wedding was the bersanding (sitting-in-state ceremony), with each family members taking their turn to perform the renjis (blessing) on the grand pelamin (stage) decorated with white roses. Family and friends later took turns to take pictures with the lovely couple.
