Mighty in Heart

by Avery Khuan

Being Asians, big rambunctious weddings are a staple! We love a good party and what better reason to gather than at a wedding filled with aunties, uncles, cousins, family friends, Dad’s friends, Mum’s friends and so the list goes on! But there is a subtle beauty in holding a small, intimate wedding and with the pandemic limiting the total attendance as social distancing measures are set in place, intimate weddings once considered a novelty, are now the norm.

As we emerged from the first Malaysian lockdown just last year, Sheng and Roe Seann seized the opportunity to say their vows in front of their closest of family and friends while sharing a simple but heartwarming lunch reception. Their guest list was small but the laughter and love were immeasurable. It took only a few dashing touches of florals in a classic white, blush and gold palette to compliment their venue. Sheng and Roe Seann also added a cheeky touch of the personalities to their decor when they replaced the table numbers with the places that they've been together as a couple accompanied by a little snippet of the memories they created together!

Filled with personal touches from the attention to detail in the decor, warm touches like personalized seating and stationery, creating the perfect menu and carefully curating the guest list of your most important people, Sheng and Roe Seann's heartfelt reception captures what makes the small, intimate wedding so appealing. Although the reception is tiny in scale, it is mighty in heart.
