THEIR solem­ni­sa­tion was held on July 23 which was kept a se­cret from ev­ery­one. Last Thurs­day, the new­ly­weds, ac­tress Ummi Nazeera Nur Hi­dayah Zain­u­la­bidin, 26, and Dr Mohd Iz­zar An­wari Ab­dul Khani, 30, had a spe­cial re­cep­tion to an­nounce their union at Le Meri­dien Ho­tel in Putrajaya.

The in­ti­mate cer­e­mony was at­tended by 200 of their fam­ily mem­bers and close friends.

The bride and bride­groom wore a match­ing off-white ensem­ble de­signed by In­nai Red.

Among those present were Sul­tan of Tereng­ganu Sul­tan Mizan Zainal Abidin’s younger brother Tengku Seri Pan­glima Raja Tengku Baderulza­man Sul­tan Mah­mud and his wife, Toh Puan Seri Wan Hi­dayah Wan Is­mail.

“We of­fi­cially be­came hus­band and wife on July 23. The date was brought for­ward from the orig­i­nal date planned for Aug 3.

“It was a re­quest by both fam­i­lies that we wed ear­lier,” said Ummi, who had re­ceived Iz­zar’s bless­ing to con­tinue her act­ing ca­reer.

Their solem­ni­sa­tion was held at her un­cle’s (Datuk Aziz Mat Akhir) house in Bukit Tunku, Kuala Lumpur.

It was wit­nessed by 20 of their fam­ily mem­bers.

“I feel hap­pier and calmer now that I’m Iz­zar’s wife. Oh, and my hus­band is quite the ro­man­tic guy, some­thing that I just found out only now,” said the beam­ing bride as she glanced over at her groom.

The two were in­tro­duced by Iz­zar’s mother in Jan­uary last year, and got en­gaged the same year in Novem­ber.

Ummi said af­ter the solem­ni­sa­tion cer­e­mony, Iz­zar had to re­turn to Bin­tulu, Sarawak. Orig­i­nally from Kuala Lumpur, he is serv­ing at Bin­tulu Hos­pi­tal.

How­ever, be­gin­ning next month, he re­turns to serve in Kuala Lumpur.

The wed­ding re­cep­tion on Ummi’s side will be held tonight at Shangri-La Ho­tel, while the groom’s fam­ily will host a re­cep­tion at Me­nara Felda’s Ban­quet Hall at Per­siaran KLCC on Aug 12.

The new­ly­weds plan to have their hon­ey­moon in Sabah and Switzer­land.
