Hafez M Hashim and Nur Liyana Taff cel­e­brated their union in a lav­ish wed­ding re­cep­tion

The phrase ‘op­po­sites at­tract’ could not be more ac­cu­rate when it comes to the love story of Hafez M Hashim and the beau­ti­ful Nur Liyana Taff. The more re­served Liyana com­ple­ments Hafez’s out­go­ing per­son­al­ity and to­gether they make a per­fect cou­ple.

Hav­ing known each other for 10 years as Hafez was a friend of Liyana’s sis­ter, it was only in 2012 when the pair got closer. Af­ter a year with Liyana, Hafez knew she was the one. “He pro­posed to me on my birth­day. We were walk­ing around a shop­ping mall in Sin­ga­pore and he said he had to go to the toi­let. Turns out, he went to Tif­fany to get a ring and luck­ily it was the per­fect size! The fol­low­ing week, he brought my

par­ents out for din­ner to ask for my hand in mar­riage while I was away on a work trip. I thought it was re­ally sweet,” Liyana tells us as she re­calls the events lead­ing up to her en­gage­ment.

When she fi­nally walked down the aisle, she was filled with a rush of emo­tions, feel­ing both ex­cited and ner­vous at the same time. She looked gor­geous in an Alia Bas­ta­mam lace wed­ding dress while Hafez fit the role of her prince charm­ing wear­ing Radzuan Radzi­will. Ev­ery­thing from the decor and am­bi­ence to the food was per­fect. Cho­sen for its gen­er­ous size, the Grand La­goon Ball­room of Sun­way Re­sort Ho­tel and Spa was beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated with rib­bon-like drapes that hung from the ceil­ing and classy table­ware which con­trasted well against the chic black table­cloth. The guests of hon­our at the re­cep­tion in­cluded the Sul­tan of Se­lan­gor, HRH Sul­tan Shara­fud­din Idris Shah as well as the now Sul­tan Nazrin Shah of Perak to­gether with his con­sort Tuanku Zara

Salim David­son. The fa­ther and mother of the groom, Datuk Seri Raz­man and Datin Seri Lat­iffah Ka­marudin to­gether with the bride’s par­ents, Shahryir Ah­mad Taff and Rina Ab­dul­lah, warmly greeted their guests as they en­tered the vast wed­ding hall.

Dur­ing din­ner, a video clip put to­gether by one of the cou­ple’s friends brought a wave of laugh­ter as it de­tailed the story of how the gre­gar­i­ous Hafez and the stu­dious Liyana met. How­ever, the high­light of the night was when Datuk Seri Raz­man and his youngest daugh­ter Melissa Hashim ser­e­naded the room dur­ing the cake-cut­ting cer­e­mony with a lovely song for the newlyweds.
