Yan and Fen’s wedding was the first to be held at the trendy Container Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, shot by Kent Teh Photography and styled by Prep. The venue’s high ceilings let in plenty of natural light while its open spaces created communal areas where the couple and their guests could mingle freely both before and after the wedding.
How did you meet?
“Our relationship began with an afternoon jog that ended with us watching the sunset together. When we first started dating, we decided that we didn’t want our relationship to affect our friendships with other people. Because of this, most of our dating life was spent in the company of friends.”
The Container Hotel is such a cool venue! What was the planning process like for you?
“We wanted our wedding to be unique to us as a couple, and meaningful to all who come to witness it. We decided to take on the task of planning the wedding ourselves to ensure that every aspect of the wedding would be an embodiment of us. We also decided to host our wedding in a hotel that looks almost like a dormitory, in a space that allowed our guests to mingle freely. The sheltered venue and its surrounding greenery made it the perfect place for a garden-style celebration.
Agnes of Prep did an amazing job with the décor, as well as turning the bridal bouquet into a work of art. We also received top-notch service from all our other vendors; our big day wouldn’t have been as perfect without their passion and dedication.”
Any tips or wedding advice for other brides and grooms-to-be?
“There are many factors that should be considered when selecting your vendors: their experience, the quality of their services, the before/after services they offer, their ability to meet your budget and their responsiveness.
Also, don’t underestimate the importance of your relationship with your photographer. Do you get along with him? Is he excited by your vision and passionate about his work? Is he experienced in actual day wedding photography? We were lucky to have Kent as our photographer; he did a great job capturing our wedding.”
Congratulations on your marriage, Yan and Fen! May it be every bit as beautiful as your wedding!
