KC and Meilan took a page out of a fairytale for their storybook wedding at The Chateau Spa & Organic Wellness Resort in Bukit Tinggi, Malaysia. Shot by Live! Studios Interactive Photography and planned by Spellbound Weddings, the wedding abounded with pink and purple hydrangeas and orchids, and the castle venue boasted a scenic view overlooking Berjaya Hills.

How did you meet?
"We met while studying in Melbourne, during a gathering hosted by a mutual friend. We did our first duet together that night, singing 'Myth' by Jacky Chan and Kim Hee-sun. Up to this day, this song holds an important place in our hearts." ~ Meilan
How did he propose?
"KC proposed to?me in my hometown in Fuzhou, China. It was a heartfelt proposal under a clear blue sky, and I am grateful that my family members were there to experience this memorable day with me." ~ Meilan
What was the theme of your wedding?
"I love purple and pink as I feel that they are naturally romantic colours, so I chose them to be the colour scheme of our wedding." ~ Meilan
Tell us more about your unique wedding venue.
"When we saw how The Chateau Spa & Organic Wellness Resort overlooked the picturesque tropical rainforest in the Berjaya Hills, it immediately reminded us of the clear blue skies back home. This made it an obvious choice for our wedding venue." ~ Meilan
How did you decorate your venues?
"The decoration of our wedding venue was spearheaded by the Spellbound team. We had purple and pink hydrangeas, eustomas and white moth orchids line our tables, and tall centrepieces added another layer to the floral arrangements. Our wedding had a romantic atmosphere with hanging tea-lights in glass bubbles and fairy lights overhead.
To make our wedding more personalised, we had the guests’ tables named 'Orchid' and 'Pine Tree' as they are translations of our Mandarin names. We gave out custom-made cookies as wedding favours that doubled-up as place cards, and our menu was such a wonderful and unique concoction by?Spellbound that we had guests taking home leftovers!
Thanks to the hard work of Anna and the Spellbound team, KC and I were able to fully concentrate on savoring every second of our?special day. They truly did a great job planning and?decorating our wedding. Their assistance and guidance made it much easier for us to focus on getting married." ~ Meilan
What was your favourite moment of the evening?
"Our favorite moment has got to be the launching of the sky lanterns; it was like watching our dreams for the future take flight on our wedding night. The spectacular sight of the illuminated lanterns suspended against the starry sky was a beautiful sight that will be etched in our minds forever." ~ Meilan
?Any tips or wedding advice for other brides and grooms-to-be?
"Don't try to do everything yourself and find a wedding planner whom you can trust and connect with to assist you in planning your wedding." ~ Meilan
What do you think makes a strong marriage?
"We believe in a simple formula that we would like to share with everyone: The most important thing is to strive to give it a 60/40 in all matters, in favor of the other, i.e. putting the other person before ourselves. Always feel thankful for the?small acts of love done by your other half and?don't ever take each other?for granted.?If you have love and understanding towards one other, there is nothing that can break your marriage!" ~ KC and Meilan
