Fari Thazin & Syah - Reception

Myanmar weddings exude elegance, that's for sure.

I really like the way Fari (also known as Princess Mandalay to her friends) & Syah planned the look of their wedding. The location at Palace of the Golden Horses complemented the feel of the wedding, and combine that with warm & friendly families on both sides, the night went very well for me.

I felt like I was in Myanmar as well, which isn't hard to feel when everyone around you is speaking in the Myanmar language. There were too many moments to photograph that I didn't have the chance to learn some words. I'll try to learn some when Mariam & I visit them for their Hyderabad briyani ;)

Congratulations again to both of you!

Fari Thazin & Syah - Nikah

Fari & Syah are doctors, yet they are obviously very much in love as the stresses from their jobs were nowhere to be seen on their faces that day :)

The Akad Nikah ceremony went smoothly and I enjoyed the simple elegance of the d├ęcor. The family members were very warm and funny too!

The best part of the day was making use of Fari's room which has so much character to it. It really goes well with Fari's classic Audrey Hepburn look.

Oh wait, the best part was actually the Hyderabad Briyani which Fari's mom cooked herself. Oh my.... the whole combo of condiments such as mint, dried prawn chilli, cucumber yoghurt coupled with the rice and chicken... speechless!

I really hope they see me as part of the family now so that I get more of that briyani.
