Sheraton Langkawi Beach Resort where I attended my first beach wedding


Congrats to the newly weds Mark and Sharlene. An invitation to their beautiful beach wedding brought us to Langkawi for the first time in my life. I've been to outdoor garden weddings but this was my first encounter of a wedding on sandy beach. I waited zealously for D day because it was also a short vacation for hubby and I, besides the fact that Sharlene had been carefully planning the western-style wedding celebration which had limited number of invited guests.

We took off with AirAsia from the fly-infested LCCT :( landed in Langkawi airport. The fun part was we saw a few of hub's friends on the same flight as guests had to travel to the island specially for the wedding. The resort was cosy. Our room was in one of the huts spread across the resort hilly compound. The hotel provides shuttle service if you do not wish to walk. We walked to the ceremony location where blue ribbon furnished chairs, solemnization altar, white cloth and pastel flower petals carpeted aisle await us. Nice!

Having experienced the entire wedding proceedings, I felt like I got to know the couple in person, Thanks to the well-planned events when their friends and family spoke about their relationship and all of us were having fun together. Apart from the hosts, the credit also goes to the hotel's PIC for a job well done. The service was good. The attendants made sure that our glasses were always filled, new plate was replenished when needed and there was a team of technical personnel who took care of the sound system, lighting, music and video projection.

Food wise, the butter prawn was superb. The rest of the dishes was just ok and not fantastic. I was enjoying myself, entertained by the live band, heartfelt speeches and we did quite a bit of dancing that night. The wedding planner seemed extremely enthusiastic. She danced together with us, casually mingling with the hosts. The Grand Ballroom accommodated about 20 tables, a bar section and dance floor space. The ballroom was nice but not very grand.

The next morning before departing for KL, we played tourists and did something most visitors would do, hop on to the Langkawi famous cable car. I had to practically drag my husband there because he is not a "cable car" person. Equipped with sun hat and dark glasses (it was a hot day) we ventured to the top. I enjoyed the cool breeze so much I didn't want to take the ride down. So we just stayed at the sky station for a bit snapping images of the island scenery.

Transported up the hill in one of these. Cable car fee: RM15 for Malaysian adults. It was really pleasantly cool and nice up there.
