From Muhibbah snapshots to fairytale-like receptions, 4 memorable Malaysian weddings of late have tugged on our heartstrings in more ways than one

1. Ili Sulaiman and Avinesh Kutty

Celebrity foodie and Asian Food Network Malaysia ambassador Ili Sulaiman just got hitched! At the tail-end of 2019, her Instagram feed was peppered with stunning portraits of her and hubby Avinesh Kutty decked out in gorgeous traditional Indian costumes.

Starting with an akad nikah ceremony in Sentul, the festivities continued with the traditional Indian wedding custom of tying the 'thali' and a Chinese tea ceremony before the elders. Finally, a dazzling Bollywood-themed reception sealed the deal for the 2 lovebirds.

"Let's just say our wedding was a crash-course on Malaysian kahwin culture in a very good way," Ili posted on Instagram in November, expressing hopes that her multi-cultural wedding would inspire more Malaysians to embrace their differences.

2. Ain Sabri and Zhareef Zamry

Last April, Ain Sabri tied the knot with her high school sweetheart of 12 years, Zhareef Zamry in a lavish reception at JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur. After the akad nikah ceremony in the beautifully adorned Bayu Ballroom, the reception kicked off without a glitch with Ain managing to surprise her groom with a song performance of Can’t Help Falling In Love (we're told he teared up instantly).

The night was made even more memorable by yet another surprise performance by the bridesmaids and the father of the bride, Datuk Mohd Sabri Alwi, who sang his rendition of Endless Love.

4. Jane Chuck & Han Pin Ma

When Jane Chuck and Han Pin were married in true wanderlust flair in Mykonos, Greece, they knew they had to transport those amazing memories in a properly stunning wedding reception back home in Kuala Lumpur.

The stage was thus set for what was undoubtedly the most lavish KL wedding of December 2019: a carnival-themed reception within a Winter Wonderland setting at The Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur.
