The first gown is my favourite among all... I custom made it according to my size and also a design from a famous designer.... I decided to wear a long sleeve gown as it look very vintage and also look like those dresses from the Victoria era. My dress took about 4months to complete from the day I confirm the design with the bridal shop. I made my gown from Simply Gorgeous, my favourite shop among all as the owner is super friendly...I especially asked her to make a sweetheart neckline with scallop detailing for me...and can you see the detailed lace on my sleeve?isn't it beautiful?? and the back, I ask for a V shape to cover my birth mark on my back....

At Simply Gorgeous, all gown design is kept simple, minimal yet sophisticated. Al their gown are almost lacey type and most design look very modern. They have really sweet design and pastel colour evening gown for you to choose from too…
Sadly, most mermaid for now are for petite girl and now they have add in quite a number of plusize gown so you can drop by Simply Gorgeous to take a look if you are plusize. The owner Alanis is a very nice and friendly girl. She makes you feel like you are the princess in her shop, you choose which ever gown you like and you can even take picture of the gown no restriction at all. You can make appointment with them and try as many time as you like until you found the right gown. Even you decided not to rent their gown it is okay. Only set back is they do not have gown rental & photography package together so you have to hire photographer & make up artist separately. However, Simply Gorgeous has partner with other Photographer and Makeup artist so they can recommend to you. On gown rental, the more you rent the cheaper the price. So make sure you discuss with Alanis on your required number of gown rental for best price ya. Their price range for gown rental is from RM 380 - 1k++.
I have rent two gowns from them for my Santorini prewedding shoot and I have also order customade gown from them for my actual day. If you want to see more of my Santorini prewedding picture you can checkout this link. Below is one of my favourite picture that showcase the beautiful peach/nude/pink dress from Simply Gorgeous.

Established in 2000, GTC Bridal (Glamour, Trendy and Creative) launched a Big Outlet Expansion Project, with investment of over RM 1 million. This was an aggressive step for GTC to become the KL largest Bridal Gallery in 2014. It believed that it is the best way to provide better service to their clients.

With most of the well-known bridal shops being moved to SS2, here's one located at Jalan Ipoh KL for those who live in KL area. GTC Bridal does the photo Shooting for My Wedding Magazine since 2003 and for Miss Astro. Their gowns are mainly from D&L Fashion Design (which was Dato Lee Chong Wei's wedding planner and gowns provider). They have more than 500 designed and ready-to-wear wedding gowns.

Their customers are in general pretty satisfied with their service and gowns, the price is affordable too. This bridal gallery attracts a good distribution of clients from different ethnic background. GTC offers the trendy “floating on the air” pre-wedding photography, an interesting alternative that presents a new experience in wedding photo taking.

Video With Passion | Lovebirds Video - LunaG

As the bride and groom celebrate their love in a wedding, their love story and special moments can be recorded in a meaningful way. It is capturing the movement and real time expressions that create these sweet memories, not photos alone. Each couple's story is different, and Lovebirds Video's mission is to help you tell your own truly unique version in the form of a video.

They may not be top or award winning videographer, but Lovebirds' LunaG is very passionate about creating an unforgettable memento for the couple and their family. I believe that Passion and hard work produce quality result. Although Lovebirds Video has the artistic eye and special technical effects to bring out the best shot and capture the sweetest moments, sometimes it is just the most basic essence of the video that matters.

One may think that the story of Cinderella becoming a princess only happens in fairy tale. However it is the dream of many little girls to be a princess. This bride has got her fairy tale dream come true thanks to Lovebirds Video.


I love the way he zooms in for certain shots especially the ring exchange part in the church wedding. The video is well edited, everyone was very comfortable and natural, all the important moments have been captured beautifully. The wedding vows are recorded clearly, so there is no running away from these promises! Some scenes are well choreographed so they won't appear so messy. I am amazed at how he managed to angle the shots at the right spot. When the cinematographer shoots with passion, every detail is taken care of.

Original Italian Ciao Ristorante KL

This restaurant received a fair bit of positive reviews. The buffet food was good and tasty. Pretty and romantic environment. They booked the restaurant without second thought, as they love the environment a lot. The place is already beautifully decorated, did not have to spend a fortune on decor, has a rustic Italian feeling, relaxed ambiance.
Buffet dinner finishes fast and guests may leave the venue earlier. You can plan more activities such as opening up the dance floor, wedding entertainment, speeches, dessert table.

Amazing venue with attentive staff
Had our wedding party at Ciao and got to know Wan (Manager) well. Excellent service and Wan gave us the best consultations throughout the build up to the event, he listened to our needs and gave us valuable advice.
Can't recommend Ciao enough. The food, service, drinks and venue are perfect for wedding parties and all our guests have said what a fantastic event it was. Really amazing place with excellent management.

theyre well known for their aunthentic Italian food in a rustic venetian country house. We went on a Friday night, there was a wedding happening outside by the lake side area. Yes, this restaurant has been well known for an area for wedding receptions since it overlooks the golf course. Stepping into the place also makes you wonder if you might have your wedding reception there too? hehe. OH! They provide free jockey service so you dont have to worry about getting your car parked since its usually packed.

I decided to have my wedding reception & tea ceremony in the indoor section of Ciao Ristorante, and it was perfect for my 120+ guests. The venue is beautifully rustic and dreamy, the food was great, and the service was amazing! Wan Iscanda the event manager is awesome to work with, which definitely helped as I was planning my wedding remotely from Dubai. I had plenty of great comments from my guests that it was one of the best weddings they've attended. Thank you Ciao!

I attended before as the role of official photographer and it was buffet style that time. The food was good actually for that buffet, but one thing to bear in mind is that the dinner will finish faster for the buffet. Some guests even leave the venue earlier once their stomachs are filled up. Environment in Ciao, needless to say is pretty and romantic.
