On April 8 -- at the private residence of Tengku Tan Sri Abdullah Abu Bakar -- royal delegates, family and friends alike witnessed the engagement between his daughter, Tengku Shaheera and Dimash Serikov.

The young couple promised their commitment to one another in an intimate yet traditional majlis bertunang, which began shortly after 3pm. Guests were seated around the pelamin which was bedecked with installations of classic gold flowers. Shortly after the engagement ceremony took place, guests were ushered to the vast patio overlooking a lake, where they were treated to a lavish afternoon tea feast.

Among the guests that were present were HRH Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah Sultan Iskandar, Dato' Seri Hishamuddin Hussein, royal family members from various states, society regulars and close friends of the family such as the Geneids and the groom-to-be’s relatives from Kazakhstan.
