Growing up, we always wondered what people felt on their wedding day. When we actually tied the knot, we finally knew because everything in our life seemed to fall into place, and we felt incredibly content as well as blessed to be sitting beside each other. The celebrations ran over four days and we wore eight outfits in total! But the wedding was so much more than the grand feast we prepared for our guests. It was a celebration of our union and cultural backgrounds – he is from Brunei and is Chinese and Malay, while I am Indian and Malay. And nothing else could have measured up to the unconditional love, warmth and support we received from our families as well as friends. It touched our hearts to see everyone celebrate the love we have for each other.
The most romantic moment had to be when my dad passed his responsibility as my guardian on to Ali, who agreed to take me as his loving wife. Getting together after nearly four years of commuting and communicating long distance as Ali worked in Brunei felt surreal. Love, patience and perseverance pulled us through, and for that we are grateful for the blessings bestowed upon us by the Almighty. The pictures captured some truly touching moments. All the tears and laughter made our wedding the best celebration of our lives.
