Real Wedding: Siok Chin and Kevin

As busy doctors living and working in Singapore, with very little time to plan their big day, it was extremely important for Siok Chin and Kevin's wedding planner Michelle (of Michelle Wedding Consultants) and us to get everything right.

We can't emphasize enough how exceedingly grateful we are for the Internet, to be able to plan a wedding through e-mail correspondence. Our couple, despite their hectic schedules at the hospital, were quick and decisive, which made a huge difference. It was also incredibly helpful as well to have Siok Chin's dear mum in KL to oversee the details and planning.

And so, here we are, with treasured memories of Siok Chin and Kevin's wedding, snapped by Zung of The Photoz. Congrats on your wedding and thanks for sharing with all of us at the Wishing Tree Blog!


Pink, white and green made up the colour palette for the wedding ceremony at Wesley Methodist Church in KL. Our beautiful bride carried a sweet, elegant bouquet of pink hydrangea, white tulips, Lady Pink roses and green amaranthus, tied together with white lace and white feathers.


For her bridesmaids, pretty bunches of white and dusty pink roses.


One of the decor highlights of the church wedding was this floral doorway arch that framed Siok Chin's grand entrance and provided for many great shots by Zung. We used plenty of white dendrobiums and Lucy pink orchids, white feathers, white ribbons and shiny bell!

The wedding dinner reception was held at Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur. From the soft, sweet colours for the daytime, we take on a dramatic turn for the evening with pink, purple and blue.


We used lots of flowers for this look! On the main table, the arrangement featured blue hyndrangea, lilac roses, purple eustoma, pink cymbidium orchids, Lucy pink orchids, with lace, light pink candles and strings of crystals. How lush!

To think, 10 years ago you couldn't order any of these flowers here...oh, how times have changed :)

Thanks again, Siok Chin and Kevin, for letting us be a part of your big day and for being so awesome with the planning!

Real Wedding: Angie and David, Part II

Angie and David's evening reception was also held at Cyberview Lodge where their tropical garden wedding ceremony took place. Thanks again to The Photoz for the pictures!

The Chinese-style wedding banquet was done up in the beautiful, vibrant colours of Spain - in red, orange and yellow, with lots of fresh lemons in the arrangements.


Of course, plenty of candles for a warm, romantic glow!


More Baby's Breath, but this time to complement the bright red, orange and yellow colours.


We really enjoyed working with this theme, and it isn't often that we get to combine these strong, vibrant colours. We hope this inspires  you to get colourful, creative and adventurous with your wedding . Thank you so much, Angie and David, for sharing your big day with us!

A message from Angie and David that we received recently:

Dear Michelle,

our wedding was the most exciting and wonderful moment Angie & I have experienced together. We were extremely happy to see our relatives and dearest friends sharing this moment with us. And this wouldn't have been possible without the magnificent work you've done. Everything worked better than a Swiss watch, which allowed us to really enjoy that magic moment. I sincerely thank you for having prepared so well the most beautiful and emotional wedding we ever attended.

At the beginning I was reluctant to hire a wedding planner but you have proven how wrong I was beecause having you as our wedding planner was the right decision, for your services, as well as Wishing Tree, The Phötoz and Cyberview Lodge were the highest level and have more than fulfilled our expectations.

For Wishing Tree, we are especially grateful to deal directly with Lily, who immediately captured the essence, elegance and harmony we were looking for.

This was a fantastic experience we will never forget. Thanks again for making it possible.

Hopefully we will meet again soon. Until then please receive our warmest regards,

Angie & David

Real Wedding: Angie and David, Part I

Dear readers.... We have a new blog post, and it's about time! Today we bring you the wedding of Angie and David in Cyberview Lodge Resort & Spa. Thank you, Zung of The Photoz for the pictures!

Our Malaysian Chinese bride and her Spanish husband live abroad so most of the planning was done via e-mail, handled expertly by our friend Michelle of Michelle Wedding Consultants. Our couple live and work in the city and travel often for work, which inspired their decision for a tropical garden wedding in a relaxing, resort atmosphere, away from the city's bustle.


We love that Angie and David incorporated elements of their Malaysian Chinese and Spanish cultures into their wedding, from decor to programs and ceremonies. Cyberview Lodge provide the lush, tropical garden ambiance of Malaysia - perfect for a touch of rustic charm, using the delicate Baby's Breath. This was a great opportunity to use Baby's Breath as primary flowers instead of as fillers.

For the wedding ceremony, we used a simple and cheerful palette of white and yellow - which represents the lemon, which is one of Spain's biggest exports.


Baby's Breath is very versatile to work with, it holds up well in the heat and humidity of our weather, is available all year round AND goes with virtually any color palette. We also adore it for its sense of femininity in a rustic, romantic way.

Next, we have Part II of Angie and David's evening wedding reception!
