KL Golf and Country Club (KLGCC)

The beautiful fairways of Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club (KLGCC) lie in the unspoilt landscape of Bukit Kiara, just 8km away from the heart of the city. Strategically placed amongst the capital's prime residential suburbs and well served by major roads, KLGCC has breathtaking views of beautifully kept lawns, lakes and rolling hills. It is a great location for pre-wedding shoot.

This place makes a good option for holding a wedding reception as they have banquet rooms of different sizes to cater for big and small group and nice landscape to organize an outdoor wedding surrounded by a greenery.

Rolling hills, dodging golf balls, beautifully kept lawns, little lakes… what a great location for a pre-wedding shoot! I’ve always wanted to shoot in a golf course, but somehow it never happened…till I met Kenneth and Marie. They shared with me their idea of shooting their pre-wedding at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club (KLGCC) and I absolutely loved it!

I learnt of Sunny Days from this website and after comparing with other florists / decorators, I decided to go with Sunny Days as (1) Alice was quick & responsive to my queries and gave good ideas and (2) reasonably priced and within budget. She brought in Pat from Lovey Doveyz to provide the additional props required in my wedding venue such as a customised backdrop, signs, lanterns and pool deco etc and the results was stunning. I am also very pleased with my beautiful bouquets and table centre pieces.

As usual, I'd do my extensive research on the entire Facebook page, stalk all the photos and albums that they have, and see for myself if they're good. After looking through everything, I decided to give Sunny Days a text, and we subsequently communicated very frequently via emails and texts. Their flower deco and arrangements are really pretty! The prices of flowers and wedding packages were surprisingly very reasonable! They're the most reasonable I ever came across. Thankfully, Sunny Days isn't one of those florists who would charge super cheap, and give your mediocre service. If you look at their past works photos on their Facebook page, you can see that they really put in 101% of effort and attention to details into making their work stand out.

The area is flanked with many hotels. Arriving at the main entrance of the grand convention centre shows that this place is the right place to hold your wedding banquet or to celebrate an anniversary. The convention centre is set against a beautiful landscape of the city and its architecture brings out the prestigious of the venue that you have chosen. The convention centre is also home to many local delights from all ethnics in Malaysia and even to the more continental cuisine. Parking is also made easy at the convention centre. If you are driving here, you could choose either from the west or east car parks that have many parking bays available to make parking a breeze. Do remember that the car parks here are auto pay car parks. So, if you are put in charge of planning an event, you now know that the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre is a safe choice you could consider.

Before each course was served, a video on "behind the scene" was shown with executive chef, Richmond Lim explaining how each dish was prepared. I thought it was a great idea as it allows us to appreciate the food more. Each course comes with different wine pairing, all personally handpicked by the couple. White goes with seafood entrees and red australian wine goes with the main course. Table settings was done in a proper way, four forks in different sizes on my left, four knives on my right. I knew then and there that we're in for a treat, and yes.. the dinner did not dissapoint. =)

A friend of mine had her wedding at Holiday Inn last year, but it was lunch at their 2nd level cafeteria. I think one thing good about it is you can avoid the jam compare to equotorial (always very bad jam at theold road in front of Mahkota there especially during weekends, but to Holiday Inn just need to go by the bridge). And, it's a new hotel, sure the interior design will be newer. Maybe you can try to get quotation from them.

The best in melaka is still Holiday Inn when it comes to ambiance and pillarless balroom. Yes...PILLARLESS! Another good thing about HOliday Inn is that their technician is very helpful to us. Their Sound System is much better than Equatorial...so you will save on hiring external sound system if you hire a Band.
