“Ming (or Nigel) and I are both Singaporean but we decided to hold the wedding at Glasshouse because the venue is unique and we were able to freely execute what we had in mind. It was also a mini getaway for all our guests to relax and have fun.” ~ Hanni
Love was certainly in full bloom for Singaporeans Ming and Hanni’s nuptials at Glasshouse at Seputeh, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, planned by Tie The Knot and captured by Munkeat. A commanding circular wood-and-floral arch and a ceiling hung with wisteria by Pax Floral Studio set the tone for the dreamy indoor-garden party, a theme carried through to other details like the invitation suite designed by the bride herself. After the ceremony, guests nibbled on elegant canapés before taking their places at tables decorated with green wreaths and personalised marble coasters.
Watch this video of the couple captured by Istudio Video Production:
How did you meet?
“We met through a mutual friend Shane, at Zoukout 2013. I was very reluctant to go on the first night but when I had another friend who sold me a ticket at a heavily discounted rate, I relented. Instead of partying, we chatted through the night and he held my hand through the crowds to lead me to my taxi.” ~ Hanni
How did Ming propose?
“We were on holiday at Hokkaido, and we went for a pony ride near the hot springs. There was a little hut and absolutely no one in sight. We stopped the car to admire the view and that was when he dropped on one knee and asked for my hand.” ~ Hanni
What were some unique or personal touches?
“The wedding invitation suite was designed from scratch by the bride, as well as some the hand-written calligraphy on the marble coasters which were given out as wedding favours for each of the guests.” ~ Hanni
What was your theme/style/color palette?
“Our colour palette was blush, gold, grey and lots of green!” ~ Hanni
How did you decorate your venues? Did you undertake any DIY projects?
“We decorated with hanging wisteria, a huge arch, a swing, and lots of greens on the tables. We DIY-ed the invitation suite design and wedding favours, including the wax seals on every menu and wedding card.” ~ Hanni
What sort of wedding favors did you opt for, and why?
“We wanted something that guests would use and remember. After the wedding we received many messages saying that they loved the favours and showed us how they were using it.” ~ Hanni
Do you have any tips or wedding advice for other brides and grooms to-be?
“We are both Singaporean but we decided to hold the wedding at Glasshouse because the venue is unique and we were able to freely execute what we had in mind. It was also a mini getaway for all our guests to relax and have fun.
We were searching for alternative wedding venues that were relatively close to Singapore (that guests could get to without a flight) and Tanarimba was the first venue I fell in love with. My Google search also showed Glasshouse as one of the potential venues and when we went for a recce, we knew it was the perfect place for us to hold our dream wedding - high ceilings, glass roof, lots of light, and an indoor garden reminiscent of our very own Gardens by the Bay. Best of all it was nondescript from the outside - being in the middle of a residential area - which was a nice surprise for the guests when they stepped into the venue.
My instructions to the husband: To show up. I made decisions that were well within our budget and that reduced conflicts during planning.” ~ Hanni
Congratulations on your marriage, Ming and Hanni! May it be every bit as beautiful as your wedding!
