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.

Jiayi: “The most beautiful thing was to see our friends from all over the world attend this intimate wedding of ours. It was nothing formal as we had already gone through the formal church wedding earlier this year in May, in a beautiful cathedral in Jakarta.

“We wanted a semi formal reception and we didn’t want it to be too glamorous, as it’s getting too mainstream in Jakarta to have a grand wedding. We’re definitely blessed to have understanding parents in law who let us have a small and intimate wedding. I fell in love with the venue when I first met my husband – he brought me to his villa in Rancamaya where I was spoilt by the fresh air and impeccable view of the mountains.

“I like blue and purple, and our theme for the wedding reception complemented my bespoke dress. I’ve always loved practical gifts and I asked myself, what would I want to receive if I were a guest attending Jiayi and Bryan’s wedding? Then an idea struck us: a travel adaptor! Most of our friends travel a lot. Isn’t it such a handy gift? We ordered extra wedding favours in case there weren’t enough. At the end of the day not one favour had been left behind. It was that popular. We were glad that our guests loved it.”

Tips from the bride: “Just relax and enjoy your day as this is a once in a lifetime experience. There’s no way you can enjoy a wedding if you’re constantly stressed about making things perfect.”
