“I went with burgundy and navy as we wanted a classic English feel. We spent some time looking for the bridesmaids’ dresses as most retail shops carry pastel dresses, and we had to tailor the trousers pants for the brothers so they’d match the women,” shares Hui Ying.
A fun photo op with the bridal party.
“Stanley Tan of Windflower Florist created a bouquet that suited our theme and style to a T. Before I met him, I couldn’t find anything that I liked.
I was very happy to see the bouquet for the first time when Poh Lin brought it into the bridal room. I couldn't ask for more! The individual flowers complimented each other very well and I received a lot of praises for the bouquet throughout our wedding day”, gushes the bride.

A rather epic proposal story:
"The proposal took place on a private beach in Bali. I thought we were there to watch the sunset, but Poh Lin had arranged for a campfire and for the pavilion to display our photos. He sang a song he’d practised for months and then proposed.
The next surprise was a pre-wedding shoot planned for the next day – complete with a photographer and gown. It was such an unexpected adventure. He even flew in two of his friends to help him set things up."

"With the help of the two friends who helped us for the proposal, we replicated the proposal set up that was done in Bali as the reception decor."
Arrangments of red and pink blooms in glass vases with contrasting blue ribbons graced the tables of their dinner banquet.

"Our guests – many of whom flew in from around the world – were our priority. We wanted them to take home as many memories as we would when we planned a heart-warming celebration."

"We wanted something different. Poh Lin started singing at the front of the stage and made his way to the ballroom entrance where I was waiting behind the doors.
At the last verse, they opened and we walked in together. I’m so proud that he pulled it off. Many guests were full of praises for his performance," shares Hui Ying.
