Lisa Surihani and Yusry are getting hitched

Local celebrity couple Lisa Surihani dan Yusry Abdul Halim are tying the knot soon.

Yusry announced to the media on Saturday that the date for their big day has been fixed on Feb 23, next year after discussing with members from both families.

He said the families had met the night before, prior to the wedding announcement.

"However, there won't be any engagement ceremony as we have decided to get married straight on the date announced," he added.

Meanwhile, Lisa said the akad nikah (solemnising of the marriage) ceremony would be held at Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque in Putrajaya.

Their wedding reception is scheduled on Feb 26, at Putrajaya International Convention Centre.

The 25-year-old actress said she and her husband-to-be wanted an average and not too lavish wedding.

Asked if their wedding would be telecasted live on Astro as speculated, Yusry said no one from the company had contacted them yet.

"As we have said, we just want an average wedding and not (something) to show off.

"Anyway, we will consider sponsorships and telecast rights carefully before making any decision," added the member KRU.

The wedding will be the second for Yusry, 38, who ended his three-year marriage with singer-actress Erra Fazira in 2006.
