KC & Fiza O’s Wedding Dinner Event

The couple’s first appearance donning outfits created by Hatta Dolmat

This is the final installment of the snapshot series taken during last weekend’s widely touted “Wedding-of-the-Year” event between popular radio personalities KC and Fiza O of RIA 89.7FM. I did say I will be putting up video highlights of the wedding event, but that one will have to take a backseat for now, as there are other important events round the corner like later today’s Anugerah Planet Muzik 2012 Media Conference where the list of nominations will be made public. Anyway, editing video clips are a bit more tedious than editing photographs so in that respect, I will need more time and cannot give a specific time frame when I will put it up. Maybe before the year is out??? Hahahaha… I will definitely try my darnedest to do it as soon as possible…

Zany as they come – A B Shaik and Syah Ibrahim

The wedding dinner event was the penultimate of a three-day celebration for the newly-weds and was attended by dignitaries, sponsors, close family members and friends from the local entertainment scene. Hosted by the wacky duo of A B Shaik and Syah Ibrahim, they entertained the guests non-stop with their impromptu jokes and ad-libs and had everyone in stitches. They even brought up the Class 95FM couple Glenn Ong and Jean Danker on the wedding dais to simulate a Malay wedding. To their credit, the pair were sporting enough to go through the motions and even added a bit of humour into the proceedings. What’s more, the wedding dinner was graced by the soulful voice of Malaysia‘s Alyah, who is a personal friend of the bride. She sang Lee Ann Rimes‘ “How Do I Live” and another single in Malay titled “Kau Yang Terindah“…

Alyah performed two numbers that night…

Donning outfits by first, Hatta Dolmat and then by Raffiey Nasir, the bride and groom was a picture of bliss and grandeur, even if the three-day wedding affair was already taking its toll on them physically. What was special about the dinner event was the screenings of two music videos to the guests, one which was created by CST Productions with the help from the newly betrothed couple’s close friends, family members and the production teams of the wedding event, and the other by the groom himself, as a surprise gift for the bride. The music video by CST Productions was a work in progress throughout the three-day event, and it was simply amazing that they could screen it in its entirety during the dinner event, when they were still filming in the same afternoon.

Fiza was moved to tears by KC‘s gesture in the form of the music video…

Listeners of KC‘s “Kelab Kelakar Seram” programme would note how talented the guy is when it comes to composing parody songs, and was also the composer of B8‘s “Bidadari Hatiku“, but he raised the bar higher with his new composition “Aku Sayang Kamu (Isteriku)” specially for Fiza. It was no surprises that the bride teared upon watching the music video, touched at her husband’s efforts and that he had kept so many of their photographs together and featured them in the video. I would like to thank KC for having me involved in the production of his music video a few days before their solemnisation, albeit my small role behind the cameras. It was an enriching experience seeing and experiencing how a simple music video is filmed and recorded. It looks easy but the whole filming process took a whole day to complete!!!

To my bro KC and sis Fiza, as well as the wedding manager Rafil Kamaruddin from Manggiz Communications, thank you for having me and my missus and family over at all the events and letting us cover it, even allowing us to come onboard the FunVee Hopper Open Top Bus on the second day en route to Singapore Flyer to meet the couple’s loyal fans. The journey has just begun for the two of them and like what I had penned in their guestbook, the essence to an everlasting relationship / marriage are patience, tolerance, respect, acceptance and love. Loads of it!!! I wish them all the very best and pray that their life together will be eternally blissful, with lovely children in tow, cos kind people like them deserve nothing less than prayers and well-wishes for the best… 🙂

KC & Fiza O’s Wedding Event (Day 3)

Second outfit by Raffiey Nasir

I’m back again with another entry on arguably, no, make that THE wedding of the year between RIA 89.7FM‘s KC and Fiza O. The third day of celebrations, 21 October 2012, saw the couple sharing their joy with guests from the bride’s side, over at Customs House, situated in the vicinity of the Fullerton Bay Hotel. Appearing twice wearing outfits by first, Weddingku Gallery, and the second by Raffiey Nasir, the couple was a picture of pomp and regalia befitting their title as King & Queen for the day. Not even the early downpour and subsequent gloomy weather could dampen the spirits of those who came to celebrate along with the wedding couple.

The event was equally as beautiful as the previous day at Serangoon Gardens Country Club and this was evident by the good organisation by all parties involved, as well as the likes of Rose Catering Services, Dessert Artisans and Madame H Creations pulling out all the stops in ensuring that guests were spoilt for choice on what to savour during the celebrations. To top it off, Malaysia-based Singapore artiste Imran Ajmain serenaded the couple with his haunting ballad “Seribu Tahun“, a song that is so apt for a wedding event and performed with so much emotion by the crooner himself.

Before I leave you with the photographs, here’s wishing all Muslim readers of this blog, Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha… Have a smashing celebration and long weekend with family and loved ones… 🙂

KC & Fiza O’s Marriage Solemnisation Ceremony…

As promised, here I am with photographs snapped during the marriage solemnisation ceremony of RIA 89.7FM personalities Abdul Karim Sadali (DJ Karim Champion) and Nur Hafiza Osman (Fiza O). It was a solemn and beautiful event held at the annexe building of Masjid Sultan on the evening of 19 October 2012. I will not be putting up video highlights just yet due to time constraints, so my next three entries will more or less be the same as this one with selected photographs for your viewing pleasure. For better quality video highlights, you guys might want to check out the Facebook page of CST Productions, the official videographers of the wedding event. I believe they have also put up some video teasers and those one-minute clips are already of excellent quality. So do look out for them when they are up and running.

The solemnisation ceremony left an indelible impression on me for the fact that there were a number of surprises. In an unprecedented and unheard of move, Fiza took the microphone just before the solemnisation began, choking back tears, thanking her parents and expressing her hopes of building a family as good as how her parents had brought her up. Fiza‘s father, Mr. Osman Shawkat Ali startled the groom momentarily when he posed two questions, if KC was ready to carry the responsibility of being a husband to his daughter and can he promise to look after Fiza for the rest of his life and not disappoint her. To his credit, KC remained poise and calm and answered that he promised he will. I, along with some of our close buddies like Warna 94.2FM deejays Dyn Norahim and Zan Sofiyan, were chuckling away by the side observing him being grilled that way.

But what impressed me the most was right after the solemnisation ceremony had ended and just before the groom went up to his bride to place the wedding ring on her finger. KC led the supplication of prayers for the blessings and well-being of their union, ceremony and those who attended. Not many grooms I know would even dare to do that, no matter how high profile they are or how well-versed they are at addressing a large audience. The pressure of a marriage solemnisation ceremony can be very daunting to most people, but I really take my hat off to KC for doing that. It shows that he is ready, he meant what he promised and a sign that he will definitely be a good husband, father and leader of his family.

Looking stunning in their wedding outfits designed by talented Malaysia-based fashion designer Raffiey Nasir, the bride and groom proceeded to leave the solemnisation venue on a ride on the FunVee Hopper Open Top Bus, which was waiting for them and their entourage along Beach Road. But before that, the groom had planned a small surprise for the bride. Walking towards Beach Road from Masjid Sultan along the Arab Street Mall and row of shophouses, the newly-wedded couple were greeted by a flash mob of strangers from all ages and race with a stalk of rose each. It was not your normal flash mob whereby you have dance performances and such, but it was a pleasant sight and gesture to behold, with curious onlookers snapping away with their camera phones.

The wife and I did not board the open-top bus as it moved along the city centre, and the entourage filming the “One In A Million” music video, which some of you might have seen via the CST Productions Facebook page. Actually we were invited to hop along, but because I had to rush over to Mediacorp TV Theatre for the live telecast of Muzika Extravaganza, I could not soak in the fun that those who boarded the bus had.  And so we left the scene once the bus had moved off, anticipating what was in store for the next two days of the wedding celebrations. You guys got to give me some time to edit photographs from Days Two and Three of the wedding event. I will definitely try to post them by end of this week or latest next week. For now, enjoy the photographs!!!
