How did you first meet?
Adib: We first met at a sharing session for creative industries where we were both presenting our projects. I thought she was sweet, smart, and had a very warm and pleasant energy around her.
Mizah: He caught my attention as he was confident, smart, and has a good-boy charm.
What is it about each other that made you realise that this person was “The One”?
Adib: There was no sudden magical moment but rather, as each day went along, I just knew she was the one that I wanted to grow old with and have new experiences together every single day.
Mizah: Same as above!
Wedding planning must have been quite a new experience you shared. Can you tell us about your theme?
Adib: We both wanted a wedding that was intimate, “effortless,” and just a relaxed gathering of family friends. Right from the beginning we also wanted a semi-outdoor venue, one at is close to nature, and it led to a garden-inspired wedding. The theme became “Wedding Under the Trees.”
We took about six months to plan for it, looking for the venue, pinning inspirations on our Pinterest board, and looking for vendors that we felt shared similar aesthetics and values with us. We set up our wedding website which is our way of keeping our family members who are based overseas up to date on our wedding. At the same time, we want this website to become a digital record of our journey together where perhaps one day, we can dust the cobwebs off the site and show our children how their folks did it in 2013. We also wanted our wedding to be made together with family and friends, so we had long chats with them to see how they can help, and piece by piece, the wedding was created.
Can you share with us the most memorable moment of your wedding?
Adib: For me, the most memorable moment was just before stepping out into the hall in our suit and gown. Our marriage was solemnised about an hour before that and as I waited for the cue to step in, a realisation washed upon me – that I am now standing here beside my wife, surrounded by family and friends from all around who have helped to put together a beautiful wedding.
What did your friends and family have to say about your wedding?
From what we’ve heard, everyone enjoyed themselves and felt that it was a beautiful affair that had great attention to details but felt simple. Exactly what we had hoped it to be!
