Wedding Date: 18 October 2018
How many guests? 70+
How did you and your partner meet?
We met at work in 2014. According to him, it was love at first sight! Clearly, he had a crush on me the moment we met.
How did he propose?
He proposed on his own birthday, when we got back to the hotel room after dinner. Quiet, peaceful, just the two of us. He booked a night at the St Regis (Kuala Lumpur) and I thought he was being sweet because he wanted to celebrate his birthday weekend!
What do you love most about your partner?
His unshakable faith in God despite going through a whole lot of rough patches in life.
What’s your most important piece of advice for creating and maintaining a strong relationship?
To never lose yourselves and your own identity in the process of loving each other. Have your own quiet space – with yourself, with family, with God.
Tell us about your wedding gown and how you chose it?
I am really petite and it’s almost impossible to find a dress off the rack. I had my white dress custom made – right from the start,, I knew I wanted it to be full lace, but most importantly light enough to travel from Malaysia to Melbourne. Nothing over the top that would overwhelm me for an outdoor ceremony. With my second dress, I knew I wanted it to be entirely different from the first. I loved the idea of a flowing, fluffy dress to dance the nighht away! It was such a fun dress, it was very me.
What was your favorite moment from the day?
When I was walking down the aisle with my Dad and as I got closer, it hit me really hard that Kar was crying. He rarely cries, it was then the emotions kicked in.
Any DIY décor elements?
Any tips that you can give to future brides?
While it’s important to make sure your guests are taken care of, remember that it is your wedding day. You and your partnerneed to let go and enjoy the moment. When the day is over, when the photos fade, you want to remember the real moments, moments that fill your heart, ugly crying, tripping over your dress and hugging one too many people you love!
Anything else you’d like to add?
We love travelling and we chose Melbourne because whenever we’re here for a holiday, good things happen. It’ll always have a special place in our hearts, yes even with the erratic weather! It was the best decision ever – A mega holiday celebration and being able to work with a bunch of awesome vendors, exploring styles and stories that we normally wouldn’t.
Where did you go on honeymoon?
We’re back at work after a month away! Honeymoon will have to wait.
