    A Chic, Nature-Filled, Dusty Blue Wedding at Tamarind Springs, KL

    Weddings don’t always have to be formal affairs, you can get all dolled up for a low-key celebration too. Here, we love the combination of a dusty blue colour palette and wooden textures, surrounded by lush greenery and elegant blooms. The bridal couple also added personal touches in the form of a sports jersey guestbook and a delectable gelato stand featuring Malaysian flavours. Many thanks to Zach Chin of MunKeat Studios for this delightful set of wedding photos! Jocelyn: “Our highlights of the day were multiple tear-jerking speeches, as well as a surprise video from my dad. He had spent several months practising and recording a song! “We have always…

    A Casual, Chic and Intimate Wedding at Tamarind Springs

    We love how these newlyweds changed things up – a doughnut wall instead of a floral arch, a hanging garden instead of lush tablescapes, and exchanging their vows in a little slice of forest within the city. The bride’s choice of wedding dress was on point too – chic and demure yet elegant. Thanks to Fixer Photography for capturing this beautiful set of photos!

    A Lush Tropical Wedding in Tamarind Springs

    Rain just might be the perfect accompaniment to your wedding, especially if your celebration is set amidst a verdant jungle on a sultry day. For this bridal couple, rain meant a pair of classic black umbrellas to match the tropical backdrop, rustic wooden textures, lush foliage and sunny smiles all round. Their wardrobe was suitably relaxed: the bride wore a gown with a detachable train while the groom was folksy in a teal vest, beryl pants and rolled-up sleeves. Above them, glass bulbs adorned the timber beams of a pavilion, and in the night, the warm lights burned intensely. Here’s to a wedding that popped with so much colour, and…

    Oh My Succulent!

    Here’s a refreshing alternative to flowers: succulents! These low maintenance plants are sturdy and resilient when it comes to withstanding transportation and unpredictable weather, and they’re gorgeous and versatile too. Available in different hues of green, succulents are known for their dewy texture and intricate leaf patterns, which makes them easy to style – be it glamorous, rustic, vintage, classic or cosy. Our thanks to Cindy Chang of Nupts & Such and Bryan Chew of Ohara Florist for this idea and decoration tip: using wine and martini glasses as dainty and aged mercury vases for the succulents.

    A Rustic Floral Wedding at Tamarind Springs, Kuala Lumpur

    With those soft pastel colours and warm wood tones plus that framing backdrop of Mother Nature, we’d never have guessed that these newlyweds actually exchanged their vows in an intimate ceremony right in the heart of KL. The lush greenery and traditional white, accented with pops of pink, painted a beautiful picture of their union. Many thanks to MunKeat Photography for this lovely set of photos.

    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…

    Fuchsia Pink, Yellow And The Tone Of Happy People

    This outdoor ceremony and lunch reception was filled with sunshine and happy details, from the sunflowers and colourful macarons to the polka-dot lining and more. The bridesmaids, all dressed in fuchsia, looked really pretty in the photos – instead of stealing the bride’s limelight, the strong colour actually created a greater contrast against the white bridal gown. Great choice. The lovely desserts were made by the bride’s cousins and friends.
