Slowly becoming one of the most sought after venues in Penang, this space is elegant on its own, both inside and out. Heartpatrick has been absent for a while setting up his studio, and this is the perfect way to mark his return. His work is amazing as usual, and it is rare for us to actually love his actual day photography as much as his bridal portraits. Enjoy this wedding, which was planned mostly by the couple themselves.

Ben: “The wedding was sweet and emotional, with a beautiful and spontaneous wedding reception after. The theme was built around the concept of 3Cs – chic, classy and contemporary. The modern, rebuilt mansion and French cuisine provided the perfect excuse for guests to really dress up for the occasion. The colour combination of white and pink further substantiated the minimalist concept. DIY items were used to add fun to the atmosphere, creating a classy yet casual setting for everyone.”

Tips from the bride: “Enjoy every step and moment along the way, and get someone you really trust to help you. A good live band and emcee are essential to spice up the atmosphere and to match your wedding theme. Make sure you check their portfolio beforehand. Also, get a pair of really good and comfy shoes! Trust me, you will need them all day long. A few makeup trial sessions are a must! Don’t leave it till the last minute to create your perfect look.”
