THAT MOMENT WHEN RING DIDNT FIT BRIDE'S FINGER

It's the most beautiful moment when our hubby sarungkan cincin kan?
And if we hire photographer we sure want them to be alert, do close-ups and whatnot.
But what if the ring shrunk? Nahhhh the ring won't shrunk! Our wedding band sure made of gold! It's our finger yang kembang!!!

Nightmare semua bride-to-be ok?! Sumpah panic kot.
And it happened to kate middleton! Yerp, the ring didn't fit her finger mannnnn!
So, pengajarannya, 1 month before wedding kena cuba.
Kalau dah bg bakal mertua pegang pun, mintak pinjam jap. If tak muat at least can besarkan. Kan?

Hurmm I asked mum. Mum said-- nak kahwin ni, bride-to-be selalunya tak duduk diam. Angkat itu, angkat ini. So jari kembang. Make sense kan? Nama pun bridezilla. Hahahaha

WEDDING SPY -- FASHION DESIGNER!

Wedding spy kembali! Takde niat malukan sesiapa. Nothing but the honest truth, I promise.
Kepada fashion designer yang service bagus, u deserve segala pujian I'm about to give!
Kepada fashion designer yang service kurang bagus, u can improve. Remember, each and everyday ada je nama baru dalam industri fashion yang mampu beri persaingan, so jangan kekwat ok?

1) RizmanRuzaini: Nama gah seiring dengan servisnya. Rizman ni very soft-spoken. Open for budget discussion. Kalau kita nak simple, bolehlah minta kurang. If duit berkepuk, ikut saja budget rizman. Dengan nama yang sering menang anugerah, harga masih reasonable. Kain sendiri,starts from Rm1500(tunang=kalau tak byk songeh)to 4k, depends on material/design/applique work. Terkenal dengan beading sarat. Mail him, plg lmbt 2hari, dia mesti reply. Sms him kalau tak dpt call,mesti reply.

2) Syomir Izwa: Juga nama yang meningkat naik. Harga pun meningkat naik. Siapa yang suka a twist of modern touch, hire syomir. Pandai bermain dengan chiffon. But syomir needs to improve on time management.sekali tu,dia terlupa appointment saya, sekali lagi tu dia terlambat almost 2hours. 2kali terjadi pd saya, maybe not my luck. Bride2be lain mungkin lebih bernasib baik. Harga baju nikah I tanya; kain sendiri starts from rm1800. Reception, latest I called, he said 3k ( mungkin ikut design kot)

3) Najib Salman: sedang meningkat naik. Cepat sangat reply pm di FB. Ayat2 yang digunakan juga ringkas dan menyenangkan hati (takde unsur kekwat) Harga teramat reasonable. Kain sendiri, RM1500 (workmanship baju+veil+kasut=lengkap!) nahhhh!

4) Qudyn Aziz: bajunya cantik-cantik. Berpengalaman 7 tahun bekerja dengan razwan radzwill. Mula terkenal selepas buat baju bride cantik, Aliah. Qudyn tak reply e-mail saya 2minggu. Saya msg dkt facebook, dia reply. But saya taktau dia sendiri atau assistant. Ayat yg digunakan sewaktu respond customer harus improve. For example I ckp : "I adore ur baju so much. And I wish to send one of my baju to you" and he replied "bajet bapa?" Ya, CAMTU JE! pastu I bagitau my bajet, and beria nak jumpa dia. Ayat I dengan nada excited ok? Dia reply "ok". Hurmm mungkin I yg sensitive but it irks me mannn. Qudyn, if it's u, u should improve commnication skills with clients. If that was ur assistant replying, get a new one! Seriously. Ur great baju should come with great PR! However, harga baju berpatutan! :) our kain, price starts from rm800 (onwards. So,jgnlah feeling mintak 800 ngam2)

5)Arma Couture: tergoda tgk baju hijau yang arma buat for exclusive engagement katanya. Mmg cantik, lekap di semua bahagian, detailing pun cantik. Namun, arma tak fokus pada fesyen, he's doing everything from hantaran to pelamin. It' good expand business, but only if u're in conrol of everything. And the price agak mahal sedikit, baju tunang hijau tu I tanya rm3k (kain I sendiri hokay?)

6)Unaisah Azlan : seorang yang baik, reply e-mail cepat. Open for suggestions. But unaisah needs assistant since she's getting busier. Imagine 2011 order dah closed. And 2012 until reda baru she can take orders. Cah, awak kena start amik pekerja. U're good, invest a little I bet u will be able to maintain the quality product n service. Her price dulu starts from rm360, last time we talked she said dah naikkan harga sikit.

7) Calvin thoo: my friends ckp dia baik, tapi dah 2kali e-mail langsung tak pernah reply.

8) Hazwani Osman: design sweet. Reply cepat dkt FB. Harga sgt reasonable (kurung modern toucg+ patch lace+ minimum beading) rm900 :)

Itu je yang saya pernah survey n tanya sendiri. Siapa ada pengalamn baik/buruk dengan fashion designer-- baik yg disenaraikan di atas atau tidak, sila share. Love.

she's engaged to the love of her life last month.
i was excited all the way when she announced that she's getting engaged, mmm that was 10months back kot!

apapun, i'm happy for her.
she had the sweetest engagement day ever that i have to share with each and everyone of you.
theme was pink+soft yellow.
from her veil to her shoes--- all perfectly done by Zery Zamry.

MY OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHER

Hello love,
I found my perfect photographer!
Yeah! Serious best!
His pictures are great, he can work the photos out with white background! (Mind u, not all photographers pandai amik gambar with white deco/background, apatah lagi if bride pakai baju putih. Ada technique to make the bride standout dan tidak jadi mcm sesumpah dgn backdrop putih di belakang.)
Seriously, saya sangat particular bab technical.

And guess what, he has all the criterias:
- skills n techniques
- editing is very subtle, natural n glowy
- shots are creative without neglecting the sweet moments
- humble n friendly
- tak berkira langsung!
- his photos are beautiful and portrays a hardworking photographer
- he's new n fresh (from the oven hahahaha)
- he talks my language :)
- I love intelligent people. Hey he studied architecture! (Penting to me org yg bijak sikit ni. To me la.. Just my 2cents)some photographers are skillful but bila bercakap je, it irks me until I can die while sleeping coz telinga bernanah terngiang-ngiang rempitness talk. No.
-RATE IS SERIOUSLY REASONABLE
*starts from rm1800 per event. Take more events-- can nego the $$$.


Who's the talented dude?

BAK HAFIZ!!!

He has it all. Skillful macam yang dah kerja 10years.. PR sgt bagus. Very prompt in replying mails and sms. Like seriously, he can reply the annoying me like everyday. So-- I like him. (I always pretend fussy with vendors to see how they can handle the pressure coming. Hahahaha)
Tak diva, tak berkira, open to suggestions, straight forward, honest and reliable.
Ok, I like him! (As my photographer)

I hired him for 3events of mine! And deposit he mintak RM500 only :)
Best kan? Photographer lain suka nak mintak 2ribu kan??!

Please mail him at bakhafizhisham@yahoo.com

Tell him u dpt reccomendation from nurulhuda tv3. :)


***ni i letak 3keping je gambar***credit to bak hafiz***
visit him at : http://bakrihafizhisham.com


the feeling i had when i placed booking for my 3events with bak, sama dgn the feeling i had waktu booked sue cantik for both events!
you get what i mean?
saya rasa lega dan extremely gembira
woot woot!
