Not surprising, my blog stats jumped these past three days with people searching for photographs of two celebrity weddings happening this past weekend. While one has been publicly known for quite some time and even made known in this month’s issue of Manja magazine, the other has been relatively low-profile and not even announced or mentioned on radio where the radio presenter works, other than subtle hints being dropped by the other presenters. I know there are still question marks out there with regards to Adi Rahman‘s marital status, but yes, indeed he got married over the weekend to Ms. Sharifah Mukminah. Apologies if you entered this domain hoping to view pictures of the wedding, but yours truly was not invited as the event was low-key and attended by those close to the groom and bride. But fret not, cos I’m here to share photographs of Fauzie Laily and Nurul Huda‘s marriage solemnisation ceremony and will share more photographs of their event at both sides of the family in the days to come. So be sure to return sometime at the end of the week for more.
5th October 2013 was indeed a memorable day for both Muhammad Fauzie Laily Bin Ramlaily and Nurul Huda Binte Abdul Khalid, a day they both, and the people around them, have been waiting for ages. The couple have known one another since primary school but only got closer together about five years ago. Finally they have tied the knot and I could see from the faces of all the guests who attended on both days, how happy they were for Fauzie, a person who is very likeable and adored by those who know or have worked with him. I am sure most, if not everyone, who has rubbed shoulders with him only have nice things to say about him. Likewise for yours truly who has known him since before he joined his first Anugerah competition back in 2003, I only have positive things to say as his personality from the first time I got to know him, never changed nor waned till today. He is still the same humble, down-to-earth, friendly, goofy and affable guy I knew. Fame certainly has not changed him for the worse, but make us all respect him even more. He is afterall the local Malay entertainment scene’s favourite younger brother to most of the established personalities.
In truth, I have known about Fauzie‘s wedding date on the day Fiza O announced her wedding date to DJ KC on 12 September 2012. He told me to keep it low for the time being and out of respect for his wishes, I complied to the point I nearly forgot all about it. But as the days neared, we could see the couple getting excited on their respective social media accounts, and who can blame them??? I’m sure anyone in their shoes would be equally excited. Some of us have been through it before and we all know how exciting and stressful it was at the same time for all of us who have gone through our own wedding events. It’s a happy experience afterall and one that we would like to go through again if given the opportunity, but of course with the same person we’re married to. Kudos to Nurul for inspiring me to get back on the healthy lifestyle regime I have somehow stopped-started over the past year.
The couple solemnised their marriage in front of a crowd of about 200 guests, made up of mostly close friends and family members at the multi-purpose hall of Blk 316 Tampines St. 33 at about 12:10pm on 5th October 2013. The setting itself was like a page out of a fairytale wedding and credit should go to the bride and groom’s wedding planner and team for making it possible. Ustaz Syed Ahmad Bin Syed Mohamed was the Kadi who solemnised the marriage. What caught my eyes that day were the wedding gifts which were simple, but an honest reflection of both bride and groom who are down-to-earth people. Instead of a wedding cake by the dais, they had Pulut Kuning instead, in line with the traditions of our Malay culture. Though the groom was nursing a very bad cold that day, he was still upbeat and cracking jokes from time to time to ease any tension felt from within.
Fauzie & Nurul, congratulations once again on your union!!! May Allah bless you both with good health, more happiness, patience, guidance, love and understanding to go through the trials and tribulations, the challenges and cinches, the good and the bad times in a marriage relationship and subsequently parenthood. Also for HIM to grant you both beautiful, filial and pious children. I’ve seen with my very own eyes how you both adore kids, especially how Fauzie‘s eyes light up when he sees my kids. Always touches my heart whenever I see him greet my children with so much warmth and candour, to the point I feel that he already has the attributes of being an excellent father-to-be. All the best guys in your new life chapter as husband and wife!!! Praying for the best for both of you… 🙂
