A Luxury Romantic Wedding

It's been a peak season for weddings in June and we finally had time to sit down and reminisce the luxury romantic wedding we had two weeks ago at the EMPRESS. One of our favourite wedding venue.

Melvin & Lynn came to us exactly a year ago to help plan their wedding from scratch. They had no idea where they should hold their banquet but their only concern is to have good food and entertainment. We short listed a few venues and the couple decided on EMPRESS. With lots of superb reviews on their food and services, EMPRESS quickly became a popular wedding venue in 2017/2018.

Conceptualised and styled by our exclusive styling partner 8Dec, the couple went for a luxury, & romantic theme in colours of Navy Blue, Gold and Teal.

The couple wanted their guests to bring home a little something that could blossom with happiness just like their love for each other. These succulents by Meadows & Clouds were loved by the guests and some even asked for more

As some of their family members are from overseas, the couple wanted to show them their childhood pictures not as the usual childhood montage, but as a table number display that runs according to their age. They encourage their guests to go around the tables mingling with each other while checking out their pictures at different ages. How nice is that.

The evening kick start with the Matrimony Ceremony with Dr Phua as their Justice of Peace. Just like all the reviews, Dr Phua was friendly, jovial and funny. 

Surrounded by the landscape and overlooking one of our Singapore's famous tourist spot. Their guests from overseas had a wonderful time. After the Solemnisation, the guests proceed indoors for their wedding reception.

An intimate wedding means no elevated stage, so everyone can be close to each other and mingle at ease. The main stage area is right in front of the bar counter where we hung a huge signage suspended from the bar shelvings. "Perfect Imperfection", it's the imperfection that makes them perfect for each other. What a beautiful quote.

In line with their theme and colour, Creme Maison baked this tiffany blue contemporary looking fondant cake but keeping its tastiness with 3 different flavours made up of Caffe Kaya Toast, Nutella Brownies and our all time favourite, Earl Grey Lavender.

Entertainment is a huge part of most weddings. The couple wanted their guests to have lots of fun and excitement, so got our host for the evening TGW (Twins Gone Wrong) to get everyone moving and laughing as they played floor games revolving around their hashtag #mnlhappymoments.

Following the games, we had everyone mass singing along to some of the classic tunes performed by our live band by GC Live Music. It's good to see that everyone is enjoying the night!

Finally, it's time to bid farewell and slowly everyone stroll their way out with the succulents and the tailored hand drawn Thank you cards in their hands, giving their blessings to the couple as they say goodnight.

We can't wait to see the official pictures by Joy De Vi.

Congratulations to Melvin & Lynn for finally tying the knot. It's been such a great pleasure and honour bring your wedding planner. We had lots of wonderful laughing and sharing sessions that make this journey a memorable one. Wishing you both eternal bliss & happiness. Cheers to Love, Peace and Happily Ever After!

Glamping Wedding Proposal

Thank god for the fine weather today after the weekend downpours!

About two months ago, we got an email from Nimalan, a Soith African living in Australia asking us to plan his proposal. As an expat, he often travel between Singapore and Australia for work. He wanted to bring his girl, Kynatt to visit Singapore for the first time and propose in this green city!
After the browsing of the photo album, we had them appear with a paper flower bouquet (as Nimalan is allergy to pollen) and a 3D Up house ringbox, all specially hand crafted by Peili from @8_dec !!!

And so we chose the largest beach in Singapore with lots of greens and sea view for this significant event!

And so we told Kynatt that Nimalan’s company is giving complimentary picnic photoshoot for their staff to spend time with their family and love ones.

We rented a tent from glampingcity with outdoor picnic lounge topped with snacks and tea for them to enjoy and spend some romantic time together while the camera is clicking away.

In line with the “UP” movie theme which Nimalan requested for, Peili from @8_dec styled the interior of the tent with vintage furnitures, briefcases, little details and the signature coin savings in a mason jar!

We arranged live music entertainment from GC Live Music featuring David Tan & Khim Ng to serenade songs over picnic.

The acoustic duo performs the song #bookoflove by #petergabriel as they browse through a handmade photo album just like the movie.

The album is full of love containing pictures and little captions and notes.

How can a woman not be touched when she sees that!!!

Her eyes were tearful as she read the little messages and notes in the album

The surprise was elevated by the appearance of nimalan’s mother and sister who flew from South Africa just to withness this special moment!

And finally the man is down on one knee to sincerely ask for her to marry him 😍😍😍

Of coz she said YES and everyone is celebrating with a sparkling wine! 🍾

Despite the sunburn, thank god for giving us sunshine this morning for a successful wedding proposal! Congratulations Nimalan & Ky! This will definitely be Ky’s unforgettable memory on her very first visit to Singapore!
