Here’s another example of how picking the right venue for your wedding ceremony can save you lots of time and money in the decorating department, while also keeping your guests as comfortable as possible.

This lovely wedding was held in the beautifully kept gardens of The Old Smokehouse in Cameron Highlands, which needed absolutely no additions at all to make it picture perfect. With lovely flowers and foliage everywhere, you can see from the photos how much everyone enjoyed the setting. How we wish there was a way to fill every outdoor venue in Malaysia with cool, sweet highland air!

For the reception in the dining hall, the table settings had an English countryside feel, with red and white gingham placemats, and fir boughs and pine cones decorating the length of the table. This would also work very well for a Christmas season wedding or party. Many thanks to Daren Chong Photography for sharing these photos with us.

Emily: “The most memorable moments from our big day were our vow exchange, witnessed by all our loved ones, immediate family members and close friends, and also our first dance together. We used our favourite Chinese song — ‘The Moon Represents My Heart’. We sang it on our first date, and when he proposed. My mother put together my bridal bouquet and my gowns were from a very close designer friend of mine. So everything on that day was done with love.

“We both love retro things and we fell in love with the venue the moment we saw it. It gave us a very English, old school kind of feel, which we both loved so much. Besides, it was also a good way to escape the heat. Thus our wedding theme was lounge suits for the men and fascinators for the ladies. The groom wore a smoking jacket and I had a fascinator to match my champagne coloured gown. The decorations, invitation cards and cake all went with our retro English theme. We served beef wellington, which fit with our theme as well.”

Tip from the bride: “Get a wedding planner as you would not want to be running around worrying about this and that on your big day. I am glad I had one!”
