"Adventurous" is how we'd describe YJ and Simin. Simin said "Yes!" when YJ got down on one knee near the giraffes and lions in South Africa. Not long after the couple went on an icy cold pre-wedding trip to Iceland where they brought back not just beautiful photos but also plenty of inspiration for all of us to build the wedding concept.
Simin got way more adventurous after that and found herself designing all the wedding stationery from the wedding invite, envelope and wax seal to the table number cards and menu that served as place mats. Then we too, got adventurous and decided to propose using moss as the main piece for the table decoration. This time around, much to our delight, YJ also said "Yes!"
The wedding celebration of Vicknesh and Silvia was an exceptionally vibrant one. This cross-cultural marriage between an Indian and Italian saw the festivity bursting with lots of colours, laughter and entertainment. The wedding was put together from zero because the venue space was a bare ground except for a small cafe that stood by the side. Everything from the tentage, generator, decoration, air coolers, tables, chairs, flooring and carpeting, utensils, glasses, kitchen equipment and tools were all brought in separately. The wedding was held outdoors but under a tentage that was decorated with twinkling lights, soft drapery and peeks into the night sky beyond. It was magical!

Think you can handmade everything in a wedding? No, we don't think so too. But that was the idea we had when we started building the concept for Richa & Mo's wedding. Together with the couple, every single detail was thought out so delicately as if we have handmade everything; from the little animal escort card holder, to the groomsmen lapel pins, and then an individual handwritten letter to every single guest that also served as their place cards just to list a few. We cannot don't mention how beautiful the coming together of two different individuals from two different backgrounds is. The celebration was not just cozy and wild but also vibrantly rich in colours and cultures.
If the photos aren't already telling it, the bridal party made up a huge part of why this wedding was so dear to us. Coming from the same school and CCA, Kristian and Claire's friends and siblings literally grew up together. While they gathered to celebrate the couple's love, we think the friendship and cameradie they've built deserve a celebration too! The fact that Claire was picked up from her family home (a shophouse along Joo Chiat still left very much in its original state since her great-great grandparents lived there) added more charm to this already beautiful and happy day. Laughters were plenty and we were all left with memories that serve as good stories to tell.

The cherry blossom arrangements along the aisle on the tables, created by Fiore Dorato, were inspired by the couple's first trip to Tokyo together. A few highlights from their wedding included an 8-piece orchestra for background music, custom mapping on a 1.8m x 1.8m giant wedding cake and Laduree macarons as wedding favours for all their guests.

The Wedding Scoop
The inspiration for the styled shoot stemmed from Soori’s very own story (and mainly its architecture). This styled shoot was conceptualized with the hope of creating a look that not only fits in but also complements with the existing design and features that are unique to Soori Bali.
The colour scheme remains largely neutral with ivory as the main focus but accentuated with shades of blue for a calming effect. Overall, an airy look was maintained for the shoot to bring about the peace and tranquility that Soori Bali is known for. For the dining shoot in the evening, a rather whimsical touch is added to bring about a more magical look.

Based in New York, Navin and Manal were not with us physically during the majority of the planning. We recall plenty of early morning calls (due to time difference) and visits to their family home to get the wedding plans sorted. With everyone's effort, we managed to put together not just one but two celebrations!
In Bali, the celebration was kept intimate with Navin and Manal exchanging their vows in the garden of St Regis Bali followed by a cosy dinner reception under the stars by the sea, highlighted by fireworks and a packed dance floor! At the Capella Singapore, a formal celebration was hosted with cocktails held at Bob's Bar followed by a sit-down dinner. Apart from tear-jerking speeches, we also witnessed a splendid dance performance - where they managed to get the time to practice remains a secret to us but there is no denying that we were impressed!
The Legian, which was where the shoot took place in, is located at Seminyak in Bali; an area we consider to be one of the chicest part of the island. Dainty boutiques, cafes and plenty of nightlife fill this area and it's a place that will appeal to the modern bride.
With that as an initial thought, we moved on to conceptualize a shoot that is not too overly lush and that will be what a modern bride would like - vibrant colours were the way to go and the element of pressed flowers and acrylic were added for the modern look.
The wedding concept was heavily inspired by Michelle’s favourite flower – the blue hydrangea. We carefully made use of this element to create a concept that remains classy and not too overpowering. The existing décor of the venue worked to our advantage by complementing our chosen colour scheme perfectly. The wedding day stationery also followed the same concept with the blue hydrangea taking centre stage for most of the stationery.
