Tatlergrams Of The Week: Inside The Fairy-Tale Wedding Of Faliq Nasimuddin & Chryseis Tan
On 2 February 2018, #chrysfaliqeverafter set the wedding bar high with a spectacular union that saw the coming together of 2 powerful Malaysian families, the Tans of Berjaya Corporation and the Nasimuddins of Naza Group.
The Chateau in Bukit Tinggi was transformed into a dream castle for the radiant bride Chryseis Tan, who wore a finely embroidered Yefta Gunawan wedding gown with mandarin collar and floor-sweeping veil. Faliq Nasimuddin complemented his bride in a traditional baju Melayu and songket in their turquoise and peach theme colours.
The ceremony, attended by respectable society figures, began with a jovial akad nikah and a noteworthy pantun recital by patriarch Tan Sri Vincent Tan, a fun-filled chip san leong, and an emblematic tea ceremony to seal their cultural bond.
The bride stepped into married life, fittingly dressed in a traditional-meets-contemporary bridal gown by Indonesian designer Yefta Gunawan. It featured a delicate, billowing veil that swept the floor as Chryseis made her bridal march.
Chryseis and Faliq's big day was made possible by the decorating wizards of Thai group Rainforest The Wedding.
Just married! The couple couldn't be more blessed, sealing their union in the presence of their nearest and dearest.
