Wee Jin + Shanru at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur
Posted on 03/9/17 3:13 PM
Classic city weddings always have our hearts. And when they’re as glamorous as Wee Jin and Shanru’s wedding reception held at the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, well… let’s take a look the beautiful photos Louis Loo captured that evening!
As our couple met in London as college students, they wanted their wedding decor to have “elements related to something British”. A hint of “British vintage” then!
When Wee Jin and Shanru came to us on Grand Hyatt’s recommendation, we had a total of six weeks to prepare for this wedding reception. You read right, six weeks! Shanru was in Taiwan preparing her side’s pre-wedding dinner, which meant she was away for half the time.
No matter, we’re good at taking down clear instructions. So, for this even at the Grand Hyatt – a Western-style decor, simple and elegant, blue hydrangeas, no pink, red or purple flowers.
Our couple liked a black and ritzy gold palette and a tablescape that wasn’t overly complicated, so we created this look for them.
“The long tables draped in black, with the gold candelabras, crystal vases, and gold candles represented the theme we wanted and even created an unexpected fairytale atmosphere,” says Shanru.
“All our guests loved the decor, and some actually came up to me to ask which design company we hired,” Shanru tells us happily, “We loved how Wishing Tree put together so many different kinds of flowers without making the designs complicated.”
Six weeks is a pretty short time to put together a wedding, but we’re so glad to have pulled this off together with you. Thank you so much dear Jin and Shanru for sharing your wedding day with us, and with our readers!
Here’s a little note from dear Shanru for our blog…
“Wishing Tree is a decor company that thinks ahead of their customers and always gives their customers more choices and advice since they have countless experience in decorating the events and weddings. When I told Lily I wanted blue and white for the wedding, she reminded me these two colours may not be popular in the Chinese culture especially to elderly, so she used ivory roses instead of using all white flowers. We loved the black table linens throughout the ballroom, but to ensure the main table would stand out from the rest, she covered ours with a shimmer tablecloth.
“Wishing Tree is a super efficient company. Lily, she replies very quickly, which is something I’ve never quite experienced in Malaysia (please forgive me as I used to live in Hong Kong so I think people here are a bit more relaxed).
“I told Lily that I wanted a bouquet and some decorative arrangements in my place, just one day before my wedding. I didn’t want any pink in my bouquet, but would like some green. So she found me an imported green dianthus to brighten up my bouquet. I remember hearing the girls at Grand Hyatt say that they had never seen such a beautiful and unique bouquet!” – Shanru
