It all boils down to sound decisions, a quality venue and efficient vendors. Believe it or not, this couple hosted three wedding reception dinners with just six weeks of planning!

Lacking the time to even consult with a wedding planner, the bride picked her favourite colour – pastel blue – and left the rest to her décor vendor, Wishing Tree. The combination of hydrangeas, ivory roses, white tulips and phalaenopsis softened the grand ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, and helped to create a dreamy fairyland ambience that the guests loved.

Drawing inspiration from their college days in London, which was where they met, Shanru and Wee Jin themed their wedding “British Vintage”. The intimate setting was perfect for the meaningful celebration, which was also a happy reunion for all who attended. Meanwhile, the gold candelabras and crystal cut vases, set against the black tablecloths, made quite an impression and brought the touch of glamour that the couple sought. Many thanks for these fantastic photos, Louis Loo Photography!

Shanru: “Most of our female guests were delighted at the prospect of wearing little hats, just like the British do when attending a formal event. We loved the combination of black and ritzy gold, as the colour palette induces feelings of bliss.

“No one would believe that I’d only spoken to my décor vendor, Wishing Tree, once about my preferences. And fortunately, securing the Grant Hyatt Kuala Lumpur ballroom meant we had the backing and initiative of a highly professional team. They were very well trained compared to other five-star hotels I’ve been to. Furthermore, the waiters were consistently right on cue and always poured the drinks at the right time. They even sent two main dishes and some dessert to our room after the wedding when they noticed that we had been too busy to eat.”
