A Sophisticated Oceanfront Destination Wedding at Cove 55, Sarawak

- 5 March 2023
As wedding planners, we are always excited to plan and execute unique and unforgettable wedding experiences. One of our most exciting destinations last year was Sarawak, which has been inconspicuous as a wedding destination despite its beauty.

This destination wedding that was held at Cove 55, a boutique villa located at the foot of Mount Santubong in Sarawak, Borneo Island. The villa boasts stunning ocean views and is nestled within lush mangroves, making it a scenic location for a romantic and intimate wedding ceremony. This picturesque venue’s claim to fame was when Sarawak-born Crazy Rich Asians star Henry Golding got married to his sweetheart Liv Lo. 

The planning for this wedding began several months in advance. We shipped all the decoration props in a 40ft container to Sarawak, while the flowers were especially air-flown to Kuching and then transported by lorry to the villa. We wanted to create an elegant all-white wedding with gold accents that would blend seamlessly with the function space. Our floral team styled the space with white hydrangeas, white O’Hara roses, rose spray, baby’s breath, hyacinths, phalaenopsis and freesias to create a timeless and ethereal ambiance.

We also wanted to ensure that the guests had a memorable time. We arranged various activities to keep them entertained throughout the wedding. Prior to dinner, the guests enjoyed game stations and couple’s favourite local street food by the poolside, which offered a stunning view of South China Sea and Mount Santubong. The cocktail session was cut short by 20 minutes when it started to rain so the candlelit dinner was held ahead of schedule. The evening ended with an afterparty featuring Borneo’s Miss Grand Sabah 2017 DJ Felcy.

This wedding is also featured on Bridepay.
