Hilton Kuala Lumpur

hotel kl wedding

Packages 2018: RM3288 nett | Capacity: 1000 pax | Connected to KL Sentral transportation hub; Railway (LRT & Komuter, linked to MRT), bus and Nu Sentral Shopping Mall, Hilton Kuala Lumpur is located in a very strategic area, perfect for traveling to the airport and KL city. Wedding guests were impressed with the good service, lovely table setting with fresh flowers, decorations and the fine dining experience. Dainty appetizer, delicious food and dessert. They know how to create a memorable wedding party. The after party is good too.

Negative comments:  Couple was told on the wedding day the wine they had chosen more than a month ago was not available. The hotel informed the couple that the guests could adjourn to Zeta Bar for after-party. However the bar was not open on that night. Perhaps they have to be more attentive to details and manage disappointments considering the expectations from the customers.

Nice Chinese wedding dinner spot. Excellent wait staff that are courteous and professional. Food was wonderful, especially the seafood soup (opted for no shark fin) and first course (see picture). The steamed snapper was excellent as well as the fish's natural flavor was allowed to shine instead of a flash condiment. Overall, I hope more of my friends have weddings here so I can eat the food again!

Malay Wedding and Islamic Marriage in Malaysia

There can be many things to do in a Traditional Malay wedding. Some of the steps are omitted or combined depending on the arrangement of both sides (man/ girl and their family) taking into consideration time, cost, requirements and practicality.

Merisik (Visit and observe) - This custom is practiced to observe or see. The man's parents or representatives pay a visit to the girl's house, ensure that the girl is eligible for marriage, as well as to get to know her - what does she do, does she know how to cook, etc. It's also an opportunity for the girl's family to find out about the man. Normally this step is skipped because in this day and age they would already know each other well enough before deciding to tie the knot.

Meminang (Proposal) - The male side sends a propose delegation consists of immediate family members to propose and ask the girl's parents for her hand in marriage. 

Bertunang (Engagement) - Barangan hantaran (gifts) consisting of a ring, clothing, food... will be given to the future wife. The ring is put on the girl's finger as a symbol of engagement. Both families will discuss about the akad nikah/ wedding ceremony, wedding gifts, amount of money for the girl (mas kahwin)... A small feast will be held usually at the bride-to-be's home.

Islamic Pre-wedding Preparation and Marriage Application (see below)

Adat Berinai - The bride and groom will have henna applied on their hands the day before akad nikah. 

Akad Nikah (Ijab & Kabul/ Offer & Acceptance) - Enactment of the contract to make the marriage valid according to Islam. The groom sits facing the wali (father of bride)/ the imam. They hold hands in handshake manner. The imam will say the words as to offer the bride in marriage and the groom replies to accept the offer. He prays and advices the couple. Marriage contract is signed and the man provides mas kahwin (gift money) to the bride.

Infrared Photography | Redfeel Wedding SS2

Infrared, or “IR” photography, offers photographers the abilities to explore the world of the unseen. Our eyes cannot see IR light, as it is beyond what is classified as the “visible” spectrum which human eyesight can detect. When we take photographs using infrared-equipped film or cameras, we are exposed to the world that can look very different from that we are accustomed to seeing.

Reflected IR light produces an array of fascinating and unique effects; vegetation appears whiter. Skin takes on a very milky, smooth texture. Black clothing can appear gray or white depending on the fabric. Blue skies become more dramatic.

Pre-Wedding photos by Redfeel Bridal Studio. Now you can have winter scenery in Malaysia, kinda reminds me of The Chronicles of Narnia.
