Real Wedding: Christina and Chun Hou

Congratulations to our bride Christina and her husband, Chun Hou, who were married towards the end of last year. They held their wedding reception at Carcosa Seri Negara in Kuala Lumpur, which Christina planned all the way from London, and without the help of a wedding planner! Well done, Christina!

We have a few photos to share from the evening wedding reception; many thanks to Zung of The Photoz.

This is the second white-and-green themed wedding reception we are featuring in a row. In the previous post, we have Paula and Andy's wedding held at Bankers Club in Kuala Lumpur. While Paula and Andy's wedding was done up in a more contemporary style, Christina and Chun Hou went for a classically romantic evening, with full, white blooms, warm lighting and romantic candles.


White roses, white chrysanthemum pom poms, green apples and pearl accents for the guest registration area.


The main table is magnificent with a lush centerpiece that is not overly done. Pillar candles and round candles together with flower balls placed around the centerpiece for an ornate feel, while lighting from the chandelier and the multitude of candles casts a magically romantic mood on the wedding reception.


A close-up of the centerpiece, arranged with lots of big, white roses and majestic phalaenopsis orchids... with green apples and strings of glittering crystals, of course!

We received a note from our dear bride and groom, which we are so proud and excited to share:

Dear Lily and the whole team at Wishing Tree,
Thank you so much for decorating our wedding at Carcosa Seri Negara, we had a wonderful evening and enjoyed every minute of it. The flowers were absolutely gorgeous, elegant, and we LOVE them all!
It was a pleasure working with you to create the ambiance we wanted for our special day. Planning our wedding in Malaysia from London was not an easy task but you made me feel calm and relaxed, knowing that we were in professional hands. The attention to detail was amazing, service unparalleled, and your lovely team was exceptionally talented.
Lily, you are the most wonderful wedding vendor I've worked with in KL, from the start of the process until the end. I have found not just a talented, creative and thoughtful vendor, but also a friend - what a great bonus!
You captured the essence of what we wanted our wedding to be, and with floral arrangements that was best suited for the Grand Marquee - what a wonderful, breathtaking experience. Thank you again for the hard work and for creating for us a magical and truly memorable wedding in KL.
With much gratitude,
Christina and Chun Hou

Real Wedding: Paula and Andy

Hi everyone! Happy New Year 2010!!! We can't believe another year as gone by. That means the Wishing Tree Blog has been up and running for a year already! We want to thank all our readers, friends and clients who have been dropping by and letting us know how much you love our blog - it means so much to us. We've had a very busy few months, as it is peak weddings season in Malaysia, and, with Valentine's Day and the first day of Chinese New Year falling on the same day this year, it is definitely an interesting time in our studio.

We also have a line-up of weddings to blog about, and first on our list is Paula and Andy's wedding, held at Bankers Club in Kuala Lumpur. Special thanks to weddings and events planner, Natasha of The Peak Xperience, and to Sam Leong of Keep Gallery for the photos!

Paula at Bankers Club

For our lovely bride, we created an elegantly chic bouquet of green cymbidiums, white tuberoses and green eustoma.

Paula and Andy, both from Kuala Lumpur, wanted something refreshing and simple, yet elegant and classic. Since Paula loves green apples and wanted to give them away to guests at the ceremony, the colour palette of green and white seemed to be the perfect choice for our modern couple.

Paula loved her bouquet very much, as do we! Green apples for their 180 guests add a touch of whimsy that is both decorative and edible - extra points for double duty props!

For the reception table, a centerpiece with green hydrangea, white eustoma, green helicopter stems and white dendrobium.

In the foyer, a table arrangement consisting of white roses, green eustoma and green dendrobium.

One of the things that stood out the most to Andy and Paula was the staircase that connected the two floors of the penthouse unit where Bankers Club is located. Paula tells us, "The first thing that caught our eyes was the amazing staircase. Andy stood there and admired it for a while!"

For the staircase, we used green hydrangea, white satin ribbons and thick garlands of dendrodium orchids. The same theme is used throughout the wedding decor, for the chairs as well as the flowergirl's flower ball.

Thank you, Paula and Andy, for letting us be a part of your big day and for sharing your wedding with our readers! Also, we enjoyed the three bottles of wine, courtesy of our lovely couple - thank you so much :)
