Blush Pink Chic Wedding at City Harvest Kuala Lumpur

Unfortunately, Malaysia’s (often uncomfortable) tropical weather just doesn’t lend itself well to outdoor celebrations. But with its expansive windows and high ceilings that added to the glamour and beauty of this ceremony, City Harvest KL is arguably the next best thing to an outdoor wedding.

From the bridesmaids’ mismatched gold and glittery dresses and groomsmen’s dapper grey suits to the soft pink, white and green bridal bouquet, everything came together for this wedding, complementing each other perfectly. Just like the bride and groom. Thanks to Alextan Artworks for capturing this stylish and glamorous affair set up by Mint Events & Soirées.

If all brides planned their wedding like this couple, every wedding party would be a blast. From wedding favours you cannot say no to and free flowing booze to music that lasted into the night, these two were the perfect thoughtful hosts! We also adored their choice of bridesmaids’ dresses and the stunning bride’s bespoke dress by Jessicacindy. Thank you Axioo, for sending us this story. It must have been quite a treat to photograph this one.

A DIY Urban Industrial Chic Wedding

This couple made DIY so much more enjoyable. Their courage to explore different materials and prototypes to come up with something different and new made this wedding thoroughly theirs. They might have co-founded a laser cutting company but they didn’t just use it, they took the opportunity to push boundaries and reveal even more possibilities. We love the contemporary industrial theme. Thanks, Jonathan Ong, for sending this set over.

This bride headed out of town to hunt for her dream wedding venue, and she found it – a gorgeous chapel overlooking the ocean. These photos are lovely, and we have to thank MangoRed for them.

Olivia: “One of the most memorable parts was when I was waiting to walk down the aisle and the confirmation of our marriage. The bridegroom photo session at ‘Marlboro Country’ was breaktaking too, and I loved the father daughter dance, as well as our first dance as husband and wife.

There is so much to love about this wedding. Besides the fact that the couple looks gorgeous, they are also extremely talented. Their wedding totally charmed us with all its fun colours and lovely details. We will let the photos speak for themselves. Thanks, Axioo, for sharing this wonderful story with us.

Tips from the bride: “I’m pretty sure you can find wedding inspiration everywhere. The most important thing is to find not just good vendors, but the right vendors that will complement your style.”

Confessions Of A Bride: Destination Wedding At Le Meridien, Koh Samui

Photo by Chris Spira Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

This Malaysian bride met her Australian groom while working in Hong Kong. They frequently walked to work together, and a relationship blossomed. He proposed in the Napa Valley after three years of courtship. This is more than just another beautiful wedding shoot by Chris Spira; it also provides great insight into the bride’s wedding planning process.

Bride: “We wanted a simple, cosy and intimate wedding. We wanted all our guests to get together for a holiday and hang out as a big family somewhere relaxing and calm, somewhere that most people hadn’t been to. Koh Samui was a strong choice – it was relatively easy to travel to and quieter compared to the more popular Phuket. We chose the date 13.12.14 because in Chinese, it sounds like ‘one life, one heart, forever’.

“Initially I wanted a lawn overlooking the sea, but it was very difficult to find a location in Koh Samui that could house the number of guests we had. We eventually chose Le Meridien because of its size, and we also fell in love with the idea of having The Pier that floats in the sea for the ceremony, and the lawn for the dinner.

There is no better spot to have a wedding than in front of an artist’s masterpiece, wouldn’t you say? The ‘Golden Mirror Carousel’ by Carsten Holler is breathtaking, with light reflecting off the golden surface. It is beautiful and, needless to say, not much décor is required. A bride who knows how to appreciate such a venue certainly has a creative flair, and this bride put much thought and DIY work into a lot of her wedding stationery. Thanks, Sayher Heffernan, for capturing the best moments of such a beautiful wedding.

Weddings like this one that break out of the conventional box put a smile on our faces. They had us right from the start, when she turned up in a tulle skirt and denim jacket. We love the modern minimalist set of stationery and posters that were set up with a hint of rustic, and with baby’s breath and soft pink hydrangeas. Thanks, Fabulous Moments, for sharing such a cool party with us. One of this bride’s tips was “be yourself”, because she certainly was!

Among the unforgettable highlights from the day was this travel video that was shot in Taiwan, Korean and Thailand, edited by the groom himself. A photographer once said that he would like to photograph his own bride because it would be so much more meaningful when she saw the beauty that he sees in her. We think this is true for Alan too, because Xuanti looks so adorable and beautiful here.

A Beautiful Exchange Of Words

Photo by Nigel Lim Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We honestly never imagined that the Tropicana Golf and Country Resort could be transformed into such a beautiful garden wedding venue. This isn’t overdone; it has just enough details to make it lovely and warm. Sometimes, brides worry so much about their wedding that they lose the essence of the day itself. With this one, it feels like love was infused so deeply into the bridal couple’s love story that it was enough to make people believe in love once again. Thanks, Nigel Lim Photography, for the great photos.

Tzi-Li: “We remember waking up and thinking to ourselves, ‘Yep, today is the day. It has finally come!’ It wasn’t just a celebration of our love, but also a chance for our families to gather and meet each other again. Our most memorable moment was when we exchanged our vows – vows that spoke to our hearts and were so meaningful to the both of us. We did not practice it beforehand, and it meant the whole world to hear him utter those words. We didn’t vow to be perfect to each other, but to live life as one under our Creator, for better and for worse. It definitely brought tears to my eyes.

“Having our wedding rings etched with a symbol that represents ‘a tree that is deeply rooted, let our Love grow through all seasons’ was one of the highlights of the ceremony, as we both deeply understood what it meant when we exchanged rings. It was also an honour to wear my mum’s traditional wedding dress that she had worn for her wedding 30 years ago. It was very well kept and definitely a gem to be passed on.

“It didn’t rain, which was a huge relief for an outdoor wedding! We were so thankful and grateful that it was cloudy though, because it meant less heat. We wanted to have it outdoors during sunset (circa 6-7pm), when natural sunlight is at its best. Our intention was to have a warm, private and casual wedding ceremony without too many grand elements, which matched our personality. We had a curtain that closed as I walked in so that the environment was contained to family and friends while the ceremony was going on.

“The theme was rustic spring, with coral and white being the main colours. We took advantage of the abundance of greenery around, and matched it with brown for a more masculine touch for the groom and groomsmen. LDR was a big part of our relationship, and so there was a tinge of Scandinavian in our wedding, with pine cones as boutonnieres, salmon canapés and berry-inspired desserts. Suits and ties were out of the question because of the equatorial heat, and so we opted for a more casual yet proper dress code.

“We had fan cards that served as a fan for the weather, and that also had a 10 Fun Facts sheet on the two of us. Melvin is always full of surprises, and I fell in love with him all over again when he surprised me with love songs. He’s a very good singer, and I swooned. And he was singing to me on our wedding day! How romantic!”
