Time flies! It has been 6 months since Malaysia popular singer and National songbird, Shila, tied the knot with her beloved Harris as husband and wife.
I was honoured to be personally invited by Shila to be part of their big day as a Master of Ceremonies at their wedding reception in Kuala Lumpur. Knowing how popular Shila is on the International and Malaysia’s music scene, I knew that their wedding was going to be amazing, and yet I was still immensely impressed by the details they have put into their actual wedding day. The wedding encompassed the traditional Muslim culture practices as I would expect to see, but I especially love the modern twists they have added to make it a highlight with an International flavour.
If compared to the typical Aussie wedding celebrations, Shila and Harris’s wedding reception would be considered a huge celebration with guests of over a thousand. It was certainly an eye opening experience for me. Not only was it the first Malay wedding that I have the privilege to emcee, it was also one of the most formal event proceedings too with the presence of the Royal family in attendance with all its trappings.
As the wedding reception began, Shila took everyone’s breath away with her elegant styling with a gorgeous black princess gown. She sang the song ‘Perfect’ while walking down the aisle with Harris – It was indeed a Perfect moment that was filled with love and happiness for all to witness.
The night went on with a number of lively entertainments, songs and dances. The most memorable ones include the performance by Shila’s sister, Syada, and the speech by the Father of the Bride. Between these two events, Shila and Harris went to cut their cake and delivered a speech together. This was when Harris shown his humorous side by showing off the first Mandarin phrase that Shila has taught him long time ago “this is my wife!”.
I think Shila has taught him well as we all know “Happy Wife, Happy Life”
Their celebration of love then reached another higher level when Shila debuted her new Chinese song “When We Grow Older”, which symbolises the union of two souls into one heart forever and ever, dedicated to her Harris!
With the ending of the wedding celebration comes the new life chapter for Shila and Harris. To me, the night was fabulously concluded with this lovely group photo that I know I will remember for a long long time.
Wishing Shila and Harris a lifetime of love and happiness!
