"It was love at first sight for me when I first saw him in person."
Malaysia, famed for its white sandy beaches and flavourful cuisine, is home to over 2 million Indians.
Grand Indian weddings are therefore not in short supply on the tropical peninsula.
Muralitharan and Kausalia tied the knot in Kangar, the capital city of Perlis.
Situated near the south border of Thailand, Perlis is the smallest state in Malaysia.
And it is in this beautiful little place where their friends and families witness the union of two loving souls.
Kausalia, in a purple and fuschia saree, and jhumka earrings with pearls, looks every part the perfect Indian bride.
Muralitharan, a pharmacist based in Perlis, is her handsome prince in white.
The blissful bride tells us: “The happiest moment of my wedding celebration was literally tying the knot.
“In Indian customs, we tie thaali (husband ties the yellow sacred thread in three knots around the wife’s neck), which officially makes us husband and wife.”
Wedding photographer Bestian Tan and Kelly Chui, of BestianKelly Photography, beautifully capture the important moments at the ceremony.
No detail is too small for their lens and no object too idle for their imaginative frame.
So how do the Penang-based pair work together to create such incredible imagery?
Kelly explains: “We started as a hobby to capture all the beautiful moments. We then work harder to improve ourselves from time to time. Thankfully we are now a full time professional photographer.
“Our vision is to provide photography class from fundamental, intermediate and advanced level where everyone has a chance to shoot, ask questions, try again, grow and learn.
“We usually prepare a list of questionnaires for the couple to fill up so that we can understand our couple needs.
“We also create a relax and fun environment to reduce stress and tension of the couple on their wedding day.”
Muralitharan and Kausalia’s wedding reception in Ipoh, where Kausalia originates from, is a Western style party. The couple is accompanied by a parade of gorgeous flower girls.
They met each other through an arranged date set up by their families.
Kausalia, a chemical engineer from Ipoh, says: “It was love at first sight for me when I first saw him in person, and fell even harder as we got to know each other.
“It was already a marriage proposal from his family to begin with.”
Looking overjoyed in their wedding photos, DESIblitz hopes their love grows day by day and wishes them an amazing married life together!
