Exactly what it says -- "fairytale kampung wedding". Just let your imagination go wild, although I think it needs little imagination.
This fairytale kampung wedding will be an informal affair, according to her.
Yes, our very own Diva Ning Baizura is to wed her fiancé Omar Sharif Christopher Layton Dalton.
According to the Star, she wants her wedding to be a "fun event". It will incorporate the Malaysian concept of gotong royong.
Ning is 32 and her fiance is 33.
The Star spoke to them when they were at a fitting for Omar at Lord’s tailor in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur.
Here's the rest of the story by Rubin Khoo:
To create the atmosphere, Ning and Omar have used the concept of village life for the decor of the wedding, which will include the construction of a wooden house for the bersanding ceremony, set to take place at the Matrade Exhibition and Convention Centre on Feb 2.
The ceremonies are planned on different days to ensure that there will be a build-up to the bersanding. The celebrations will begin on Jan 29 with the berinai, and the akad nikah and a private reception will then take place on Jan 31.
For the bersanding, the couple will wear three outfits. The first will be the traditional outfit of the state of Pahang, designed by Riezman & Ruzaini. Next, Ning will wear the Java Ceribon outfit - because of her Javanese heritage - created by Jovian Mandangie, and finally, she will wear a colourful gown designed by Michael Ong while Omar will complement her with a suit by Lord’s.
“I didn’t want to wear white because it is so cliché,” she said.
The artiste will, however, not be taking time off from her career as her English album is planned for a March release.
Ning met Omar, a 33-year-old gas and consulting manager from England, in September 2006. The couple were engaged in July last year.
Since their engagement, he has been adjusting to the fact he was marrying one of the nation’s biggest celebrities.
“I accept it and go with the flow.”
Well, I wish the couple all the best and hope that their wedding will really turn out as they had planned it to be.
And...aaah... Ning has Javanese in her blood..
