Designer's Wedding

Our wedding ceremony was held on the 10th October 2009. It was done in Seremban Negeri Sembilan which is at my wife family's house. I named this ceremony as the 'Designer's Wedding' as we both were designers and the most interesting when the important part of the wedding is designed and done by both of us (me and my wife). Even the invitation card was designed by us and we had cut and paste 1500 pcs of this invitation card!Other than that, in Malay, we have wedding gifts which is to be gift to both part. Husband will gift to hes wife and vice verse. Normally the wife will return her gift to the husband extra of two gifts. Below is a set of make up the i gift to her, we design our own platform and also the decoration and arrangement for all the gifts set.First off all we choose the material that suits the color of our wedding concept which is white, pink and silver. She choose the nice quilt fabric that had a layer of sponge inside, it was really nice fabric.All the boxes were done by us together. We even used house wall paper for this platform boxes.
Below is the 'Sirih Junjung' that had done by us.

Below is the display for our wedding ring also done by us.The close up of the ring.her gifts to me was gold range of color, the platform was covered with Burrberry's checkers design material as i'm a fan of Burrberry.Below is the perfume set.This is the set for my office attire.And this one is for casual attire.Below are some other display that i gave to her handbags and clutch.Patchi chocolate that she gave to me.And off course the Quran exclusively for her.But that was not the end of the story, behind the scene of the beautiful ceremony, we had a great experience in doing our own wedding setting which is called 'pelamin' in Malay. 'Pelamin' is where both bride and bridegroom sit together and wait to be blessed by all the family members.We had designed and done it by our own. The reason was we really wanted our own touch for our wedding setting. Only ourselves can satisfied both of us. We create a simple wedding setting that we can make us easy to handle it. We bought all the needed material like organza, sponge, paint and others. The wooden part we design and measure and let the carpenter built based from our drawing, then our job is the finishing of it. The sponge were pasted on the plywood panel to create the spongy effect.Then it was covered with a thick silky fabric that stretch at every corners.Then we make a marking for to put on the studded.Then make a hole using drill to tied the studded from behind.Here goes the chrome studded tied from behind the panel wood.Now you can see the ready panel with nine chrome studds on it. on the top of this wedding setting, we had a metal rail that done by the metal guy. I measure this metal rail and illustrate for him and this is the result. What we going to do is a flow of fabric draped from the rail to the centre of it.It was not an easy job, we ended up draping at 4.30 am!and the final touch.Below you can see before the setting is done.and after it was done perfectly.This synthetic flower was arrange by us in a tall glass tube vase the we bought.This bench was originally in black color, we then sew up the cover that made of white vinyl and cover up another layer off synthetic white fur. It was really hard to find white vinyl bench here.This chandelier was also not in white, we decided to repaint ourselves this chandelier and bought crystals and hang it up to enhance this chandelier. Now it looks nicer!The red carpet was in pink. We bought 12 metres long pink carpet and decided to spread up synthetic flower petals along it. Here goes cutting the flower and paste it on.the pink carpet was done before the setting.Theres a lot more minor arrangement that had done by us. The reason to do by our own was we really wanted the people who came to feel our own touch. Only ourselves will satisfy us, and this is the only moment for us to use our own ideas and creativity for people to appreciate it.Finally the ceremony was really happening and successful! all the crowd were really happy, i can see they really appreciate our design and touch! Below is the picture of a well known Malaysian fashion designer Datuk Tom Abang Saufi, she was really happy to see our workmanship.
