It’s not often that we get to feature an Iban wedding, and this one was beautifully put together, from the cosy and intimate celebrations with close friends and family to the open reception that included everyone in Kapit. What’s even more amazing is that a clear theme was maintained throughout – the blush, grey and light gold palette tastefully brought together with textures such as drapery, florals and other traditional elements. Many thanks to Andy Phe of Bespoke Photographics and Melia Linggi of the Tun Jugah Foundation for all the important information on Iban weddings and customs.
Amanda: “The theme for our church blessing was ‘Rustic Garden’. Our altar stage décor had two-toned drapery, and we used fresh flowers in pink, white, pale yellow and green. Jonathan wore a navy blue suit paired with a pineapple-printed dark blue bow tie to add a bit of fun, and I wore a vintage off-shoulder trumpet dress in Chantilly lace from ThatWhiteDress and a Swarovski-dotted veil from Designer Bridal Room rimmed with a bunch of fresh baby’s breath in my hair.
