A Yellow and Grey Industrial DIY Wedding In Kuching
This was a wedding of contrasts, as the venue was rustic with its exposed brick walls yet industrial with its steel staircase and high ceilinged warehouse interior. Strung with lights and set up in a combination of yellow and light grey, this wedding was literally brought together by the efforts of the bride and groom. Their DIY project brought them closer together and they made sure their wedding reflected their personalities and love story. We love the little details too: succulents in the bride’s bouquet, and the various decorative accents. Many thanks to Andrew Yep Photographie for capturing this beautiful wedding.
Andrew Yep, the photographer: “Terence and Karen wanted something happy and bright so they chose a colour palette of yellow and light grey. The Granary Kitchen + Bar was chosen for its combination of industrial and rustic aesthetic. They wanted to keep the décor simple with various shades of yellow and grey, and pretty lights. Terence built the arch and the marquee lights with their initials and the heart. They also designed the invitations and ceremony program sheets together to match the theme, and the rest of the decorations were set up with the help of family members. A lot of the décor for both the ceremony and reception were DIY. For example, the white cones hanging from the arch were made with paper doilies, all 200 of them cut and put together by hand. The couple really enjoyed the process and also learned new skills (such as graphic editing, woodworking and electrical wiring) while doing it.”
Tips from the bride: “At times during the wedding planning, it felt like time was passing too quickly and that we didn’t have enough time to do the things we wanted. So do schedule your time properly. DIY is great fun too if you’re up for it. It gave us the chance to spend more time together as well as save some money. We really believe that good communication is right on top of the list of required skills to make a strong marriage. Never assume and play the guessing game. If there’s something on your mind, good or bad, let it out.”
