    A Rustic Rose Gold Garden Wedding At Eastern & Oriental Hotel Penang

    A union between two people brings together two hearts, two families and two sets of friends. For this bride and groom, it was also a combination of flavours! As co-owners of an ice cream business, they celebrated their wedding with an extended Christmas holiday for friends and family, complete with a “Marry Christmas” theme and wedding favours that were a mix of their favourite ice cream flavours! Special thanks to Munkeat Photography for sending us this gorgeous set of photos.

    Timeless Elegance

    This wedding was held at Penang’s two most sought-after venues – a beautiful white garden ceremony at E&O Hotel followed by a chic dinner reception at the Blue Mansion. We love the bridal party, the bridal car and, of course, the stunning bridal gown. This is another good example of how to keep a traditional essence without missing out on some fun.
