Malaysian songbird Shila Amzah and husband Haris Idraki Elias hosted their grand wedding reception last night, 22nd April 2018 at Marriott Hotel, Putrajaya.
The prestigious ceremony saw the attendance of more than 800 guests including families and friends from both sides of the bride and groom, as well as fans from China, Singapore, Australia and other parts of the world.
Members of the Pahang Royal family also attended the event, and some celebrity friends were also spotted during the reception. They include singer Jaclyn Victor and husband Shawn Rivera, host Aznil Nawawi, singer-host, Alif Satar, radio host Fara Fauzana and more.
The theme of the ceremony is inspired by the “Chinoiserie” of old Shanghai during the 1960s, featuring exuberant decorations with Chinese artistic traditions.
During the reception, there were several performances various artistes including Soul, Shila’s favourite hip hop and R&B group; Ruffedge, a band Shila grew up listening to; and Syada Amzah, Shila’s younger sister.
But that’s not all, Shila herself also took the mic and performed her own rendition of Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect”, and she wrapped up the event with an original love song dedicated to her husband Haris, “如果我们老了” (If We Get Old), her latest Mandarin single.
Shila and Haris had their solemnisation ceremony on 19th April at Shila’s family residence in Cheras. After the wedding, the couple plans to depart to England immediately for their honeymoon.
Shila will be resuming her busy schedule in May which will include the launch of her new Mandarin album in China, and the preparation of her new concert world tour for 2018 and 2019.
