We have to admit that we love this area. It breaks away from the usual hotel ballroom mould yet carries the same five-star service. It is perfect for an ROM. What we love the most about this wedding, though, is the kind of details that went into it. Never underestimate DIY; it creates a warm atmosphere that will set the right tone before you even walk in. The bouquet and solemnisation table put together by Fiona Treadwell deserve credit, as do the equally colourful dining and cocktail tables that were set by Mirage Flowers. Thanks, Melvin Ho, for this whimsical and fun set of photos.
Lijie: “The most memorable moment, for me, was definitely the exchanging of vows. It was heartwarming and funny at the same time! We both wrote our own vows, and we didn’t think we were the best at giving speeches, but we realised that you don’t need any skills or talent – just be yourself and let the person that you are marrying know how you sincerely feel.
“We wanted a summery feel with a vibrant mix of flowers to enliven the place, and DIY decorations to cosy up the venue. As we were fans of the film ‘500 Days of Summer’, the colour scheme was easy to decide – we mainly used the movie’s pastel blue and coral palette. We even added details onto my shoes and on the favours.”
Tips from the bride: “Hours were spent scouring websites for inspiration, and of course, many more to transform those ideas into reality, but it was all worth it. Those sites were a godsend! There were even some free printable templates – a money-saving tip!”
