Joanne is Malaysian Chinese and Stephen is British. Joanne may have grown up in Malaysia but she lived a huge chunk of her life in Singapore and Australia. Their origins weren’t the only thing that was different about them, their personalities couldn’t be any more different. The bride has a cheery and outgoing personality while the groom is much more reserved and introverted. It’s true what they say about opposites attracting. The couple, who now resides in Singapore, decided to host their wedding in Joanne’s hometown just 1 hour across the border at Pulai Springs in Johor, Malaysia.
Their wedding was a mix of their unique styles including colours and a theme of east meeting west or Chinese meets Modern Victorian that we were able to display through signature cocktails, flower arrangements, decor style, stationery designs as well as games and entertainment.
The Romance of the Rainy Weather & How Everyone Pulled Together to Make it Work
When the weather outside is less than ideal, it can be a challenge to make your wedding day special and memorable. On their special day, the rain came pouring down and threatened to ruin the entire wedding. Despite this, all the vendors involved kept moving forward and made sure that the wedding went on as planned. Joanne and Stephen as well as their families didn’t let the rain ruin their evening either.
TIPS FOR FAMILY: At times when a situation is less than ideal for the couple, we encourage family and friends to show positivity and encouragement instead of putting fire to the flame, making it more stressful for the couple. You can still make the most of a rainy-day wedding.
Joanne’s Malaysian childhood snacks were served up at the after-party, while a DJ kept everyone grooving with old-school hits from the 2000s.
We love the same day edited video produced by The Sanren, featuring the Tea Ceremony session which took place in the morning.
