This is the beginning of a song lyric sung by country singer Carl Smith.....its so happened I was looking for a title to befit this set of hantarans.
Firstand foremost my sincere thanks to Datin Sazilah for giving me this opportunity and trust to do this set for her daughter Mariam s wedding.I must say this young, stylish mother is all excited as this is the first wedding in their family....and she was prepared with what she had in mind.The dulang which she had was a beautiful porcelin tray....With the theme given...that is peach....my mind was set on orchids and roses..peach and purple so to speak.
i was in frenzy when the florists told me the colours i had ordered did not come due to the cold weather...and so these were the final results....please view below.I am glad the family loved them.To Miam and Awi have a blessed married life together till Jannah.Amiin.To Dato and Datin thank you again.
If anyone can remember this 1985 song sung by diva Whitney Houston. .. called Saving all my Love for you.....? it is such a beautiful love song and it reminded of this handsome Mohd Sirajuddin and his beautiful bride Hazlin from Ipoh.
When Mohamad first called me..he already knew what he wanted .I was pleasantly surprised .His mom gave a lot of suggestions which really made it easier for me .
White orchids was the choice and he wanted the hantarans to be perfect for this special lady.They were going to Ipoh for the ceremony.....I was told they were neighbours during their childhood days.
Thank you Mohamad for your trust ...I wish you well and a happy married life together till Jannah.Aamin.
The pictures were not so good as they were taken in a hurry....
Alma and Zul are friends of my son and his wife ....they came by one day to get me to arrange for Zul s brother who was getting engaged.Such a lucky guy ...to have a brother so concern .
Having decided on the colour theme ...which was brown...I chose to use roses eustomas and carnations in peach and purple.As the function was going to be after maghrib the colours have to be bright enough to be eye catching.
Glad they turned out well and Alhamdulillah the family was satisfied....
I kind of like the wooden stand they brought.....it adds to that English feel....please view below
In November 2013 I did a set of hantarans for Azilah from Shah Alam.Peach and green werethe theme colours....Peach seems to be a favourite colour these days.
Anyway, having requested for orchids here I opt to use cymbediums again and this time I combined it with peach roses, champagn eustomas, cream carnations and of cos baby s breath too.Babys breath will always softened the whole arrangement.
Once again congratulations Azilah and partner may you have a happy married life.Aamiin.
The things that one can give away as favours on your wedding day are countless from food, cookies, cupcakes, to decorative items like soaps, notebooks, candles, etc.
Gone are the days when we give away boiled eggs or bunga telur....although some still do .
Here are some that I have picked up from the numerous weddings we attended and liking them too...
Little containers and bottles....filled with honey, flavoured salt, mixed nuts, or even dried fruits...this one here is filled with dried cherry tomatoes...you can even use dates, cranberries,apricots, kiwis, pineapples to name a few....
Be creative and dont overdress the containers ...keep them simple!
