Inspiration from Nature - Our Heaven's Gift

Just got to see the pix from a wedding in Jan this year. I can't help to realise I love the concept of trees in weddings, many of our weddings last 1 year was inspired through nature particularly trees.. and I love the silhouette of trees. This is another wedding inspired by Nature, and I was reminded : Nature - The Heaven's Gift. Pix taken by Kelvin Koh from Lighted Pixels

Garden Bugs Kids Party.... I just love it..

Last week, we did a school garden party cum 6th year old birthday celebration at Eton House. It was great fun, creating those details, the overall concept from decor to cake to the stationery, and as usual, I have my team to look into all aspect of details and designs to make the party pretty and fun. It was a concept of garden bugs filled with pretty lanterns & balloons, cheery flowers & butterflies with customised bugs games and telematches.... and having the kids dressed up in garden bugs was the best final touches.. I really love the final outlook.
To be honest, doing a kids' party takes up more energy than creating a wedding... but all the charming faces of the children and their spontaneity on that day brought us so much joy and laughter.. and it's worth it.

I am certain we will have more children parties coming on our way...simply because I definitely getting younger planning those parties ;) And Aloysus from 39east did a great job capturing those moments.

A beautiful concept...

Managed to gather sometime to take a look at all the past months weddings we have created. And one wedding concept was worth sharing, and one that we are happy to showcase. The wedding that we spent substantial efforts developing the theme and creating all the pretty details.
And what pleases me most was the essence of the concept was well captured by Eadwine Lay from Thank you Ead.

I just love the colours, all the little details, and I am sure you will enjoy it as well.

Excitement is in the air...

Back from Turkey, and somehow I was inspired by the Asian part of Turkey. I marvelled at the wisdom of Ancient Man, and I stood in awe the special provisions of God to His people. These were some of the places I love. Somehow I know 2009 and 2010 is going to be a year of unexpected reaping of His provisions... like what the saying goes : Soon all will be revealed and all will know in His time, He makes all things beautiful.

Colourful Spices of Turkey

Ephesus TheatreImagine a theatre that holds 25,000 pax, and the Ancient architect could create it in such as way that when the speaker spoke from the stage, everyone at the theatre could hear him clearly - without any need of mikes and sound system.. that's genius.

Pamukkale - Beautiful Limestones..It was awesome walking down on these nature-crafted land

Bali Weddings - More to come

These days, we see many advertisements and featured articles on Bali weddings.. and indeed Bali is a great place to get marry in. Received some great shots from Kuang (from 39 East Photography) who is such a great chap to work with. So enjoy some of his details shot I have asked him to take for me for this wedding..

And I simply love Balinese and our people who worked there. They just know how to serve the guests. And as simple as we think they can be, they are a joy to work with, we have a good team in Bali who we are proud to have. Building a floating stage and a floating dance floor was never an easy task.. but our team did it to our precision, and it is just perfect when all is completed. Our guests always have fun at our weddings, and you bet the photographers have great time capturing those moments.
So look out for more Bali Weddings Heaven's Gift is offering : Be it Simple Exotic Bali Weddings, or An Extravagant Celebration you want to spend with all your loved ones, we have something for everyone.

A Celebrity Planner Coming to Town...

I just got back this week from Turkey, was a rested trip. I am pleasantly surprised when none of my couples called me, it was as what they have wished for me : Have a good rest Hannah, you deserve it. And I did have a great time.
Back to office, lots of things to consolidate. We got a few interesting updates and calls from the industry players. "Do you know David Tutera is planning a wedding in Singapore?" "Who is working with David Tutera?" "Are you one of them?" "Which florist has he chosen?" etc etc etc
It is not surprising, since this is the first time a Celebrity Planner from the States is coming to town to plan an event, and no wonder all of us want to be a part of it. We are all curious to see the players that will be involved.. but I am sure of one thing : It will be a great experience to see David, the genius at work.

A part of me is tempted to know the outcome, yet a part of me just simply trust the One Almighty.. If it is yours, it will be yours. If it is not, better things is awaiting for you. So I learn to focus on what I do best : Continue to conceptualise the best ideas for your couples, and wow your couples what you can do. And who knows, you may one day become a Celebrity Planner.
