    Modern Wedding with Tropical Touches at Gita Bayu

    We love the way this couple played up the invigorating tropical environment at Gita Bayu with modern touches. Aiming for an organic and effortless feel, they chose a rustic colour palette of iced coffee, orange, green and white for a modern inspired theme fused with calming tropical elements. Thanks, MunKeat Photography, for capturing this.

    An Intimate Teal And Yellow Wedding At Gita Bayu

    Outdoor weddings are beautiful – but only if the weather permits! Despite the weather dashing these newlyweds’ hope for an outdoor wedding, their ceremony was warm and love-filled, with the teak wood interiors, ample greenery and accents of deep green. From the eucalyptus leaves in the bridal bouquet to the cheery pops of yellow in the décor, the colours all came together beautifully, creating a dreamy yet romantic mood. Teal was a lovely complement too, and the bride looked resplendent in her teal evening gown. Many thanks to Anson’s Photography for capturing this sweet set of photographs.

    A DIY Outdoor Wedding In Shades of Red At Gita Bayu

    Simple yet elegant and surrounded by nature, this bride and groom tied the knot overlooking a lake at Gita Bayu. While she chose to keep things DIY, she had envisioned a colour scheme made up of varying shades of red, from pink to dark red, from the hanging paper cranes and décor to the bridal bouquet. We love their ingenious guestbook idea – guests wrote their well wishes on a salvaged piece of wood that was later turned into a coffee table top for the couple. What a wonderful memento of their special day. Many thanks to Dennis Yap Photography* for the sweet set of photos!

    This couple sealed their 10-year friendship with ‘I do’s, and everything about their wedding fell into place just the way she wanted it. We love how the bride worked creatively within her budget to come up with such a beautiful wedding. And of course, a good wedding photographer is a must. Hui Wen: “The night before our wedding, the forecast was rain. As I was making my way to Gita Bayu, I felt sick to the stomach looking at the swirling dark clouds. I was mentally beating myself up for not opting for a clear tent as a Plan B. I was so nervous and worried the whole morning! Nonetheless,…

    18 Venues To Have Both A Garden Ceremony And Reception In Malaysia

    It is quite the norm these days to have a garden ceremony right before a dinner reception. Here is a list of specially selected venues that have both a lush, green garden for your ceremony and a great ballroom or space for your reception. The great things about having both the ceremony and reception at the same venue is that your guests will not need to move from one place to another, you could possibly get a better deal from the hotel, and you will be able to start the reception earlier since your guests are already there. #01 Eastern & Oriental Hotel, Penang Photos by Alextan Artworks from The…
