The first thing I noticed was the K&G for Kimberly and Gareth ice sculptures which dominates the entrance to the ballroom where the wedding was held. There’s also an archway above with roses – nice touch, that.
This is my favorite bit – there’s lots of nostalgic candy with witty place cards at the lounge where wedding guests can help themselves to.
I haven’t had some of these since I was in primary school! It certainly brings back fond memories.
…so much so I had a brain fart while writing the guest book. Lives, not lifes. -_-
Kim and Gareth’s wedding was held at The Saujana Hotel last Saturday on the 27th October. I was there at 6:30 pm for the cocktail reception.
Vintage Coke bottles from Thailand.
Here’s Yee Hau with Yee Haw! That’s the tag for the haw flakes of our childhood.
Rabbit Candy! Anyone remember these? I still love them.
I think this was a really great idea too – having photo cutouts to take photos with while the bride and groom were busy, very tongue-in-cheek. Heh.
The wedding favors on the table were hugely popular too – we had an impromptu game of volleyball while waiting for it to start, made by Nicholas with the goo you can blow up into a balloon (also an artifact of 80’s babies – we had them in school).
Kim and Gareth both had speeches going and I thought it was really nice, what they said, weddings always makes me feel good.
There’s also an 8 course dinner, with the soup dish called “Save the Sharks Seafood Soup” – obviously no fins in there but it tastes surprisingly good with the mini abalone and other seafood inside and it’s a great departure from traditional wedding soups by being clear, yet flavorful.
A lot of us at the table went for second helpings, myself included…and I’m not even a fan of soup.
I love the single malt whisky that was offered too – had a dram each of Yamazaki 12 y/o and a The Glenrothers Select Reserve. I preferred the latter, despite the novelty of drinking a Japanese single malt whisky – it had more character and complexity.
Here’s the obligatory table-to-table yam seng session!
…and a photo with the (real) bride and groom at the end. Hope you have a wonderful life ahead together, Kim and Gareth! :)
