Publication Date : 28-05-2012
They are not like the characters of the hit TV police drama Blue Bloods, but the five couples from the Salak Selatan Baru police station are true-blue cops with a strong bond that makes them almost a family.
Yesterday, they set aside their uniforms and made heads turn during an light rail transit (LRT) ride with their radiant white wedding costumes.
Taking the role of kings and queens for the day, the LRT train served as their royal carriage for their journey from Cheras to Salak Selatan, where a convoy of five police bikes accompanied them to their wedding reception.
It was indeed a day that will be etched forever in the mind of Norshiffa Azemi who married Rizuan Anuar Zakaria, both 28.
“We often met at train stations which is why we decided to use the train to get to our reception at the police station,” she said grinning from ear-to-ear.
“Besides, it is unique and I believe it is the first time such a wedding is being held in Malaysia.”
Mashita Mansir, 26, said she also constantly used the train to meet up with her husband, 29-year-old Bakhtiyar Bachor.
“Therefore, trains hold a special significance for me,” she said.
Norhafizah Ishak, 24, said they all wanted a wedding unlike any other.
“We also wanted a date where all our friends and family will have the time to celebrate with us,” added the lance corporal who married constable Nik Mohd Shahfiz Nik Danya, also 24.
Muhamad Ridzuan Halim, 28, and Meslinder Masturi, 26, were speechless due to the excitement, when asked about their unique wedding.
“All I can say is we are very happy that the day is finally here,” said Ridzuan.
Azrul Azuan Asmawi, 29, and Nurul Suhadah Nordin, 26, were also too happy for words.
The couples are all attached to the Salak Selatan Baru police station, where their grand wedding reception was held amid smiles and cheers from colleagues, family members and friends.
Except for constable Nik Mohd Shahafiz, the others are all lance corporals. Adding to the glitter of the occasion, each bride had a silver tiara on their heads and held a bouquet of red and white roses.
LRT commuters came forward to offer their best wishes and congratulations to the couples.
