A Romantic Colonial-Inspired Wedding At The Majestic Hotel
This had all the makings of a classically beautiful wedding, from the venue to the breathtakingly glamorous floral elements and décor. The abundance of white flowers, set against the white walls and colonial architecture, together with the dripping beads, crystals, candles in gilded candleholders and tea lights, all came together so perfectly. Many thanks to Louis Loo Photography for capturing these stunning wedding shots!
Pei Shuen: “The most memorable moment was the father-daughter dance with my dad and our first dance as a couple! We decided to have a small intimate church wedding in London, where we had our legal ceremony, before heading back to Malaysia for the wedding ceremony. This allowed us to enjoy ‘us’ with our closest family and friends. It was also well worth it as we used these photographs as our ‘pre-wedding’ photos so we saved some money there!
“Our theme was white, classic and timeless. We liked the old-school British style, and loved the exterior and old wing design of Majestic Hotel. Bonus: the butler service for the bridal suite was exemplary!
“We decided to go with a charity donation in place of wedding favours, and we donated to Cancer Research Malaysia. They supplied us with pins for our guests, which served as a favour as well as improved awareness. My parents helped to painstakingly tie hundreds of ribbons to the cards holding the pins! Ash and I felt it represented us well, as this is something we both hold close to our hearts, and as an oncology trainee, I treat cancer patients daily on my job. Why buy hundreds of pens / bells / spoons / shot glasses with your names on it only for it to end up in a dark corner of the cupboard? We were told that our donation has been used to support a program aimed at improving outcomes and the quality of life in cancer patients in poorer communities. I would urge future couples to consider donations to charities, although it isn’t the easiest to organise as it’s not the norm in Malaysia yet, but it won’t get better until you start!”
Tips from the bride: “This day is about the both of you, so enjoy it! Your differences will be evident during the preparations leading up to the wedding, so embrace each aspect and learn to compromise. This will be the first of many big projects you will embark on together! Don’t get too bogged down by choices and what others think – who cares if you choose pink or blush pink? Life is too short to worry about whether you chose the uglier font or colour, so enjoy the process of choosing songs together where you find out his secret love for a certain band, or visiting the tailor with him and laughing at the fact that he is trying to get the slimmest ‘James Bond’ cut. It is the little moments – keep that in mind when you are stressed!”
