Oia, Santorini, Greece

Santorini is actually what remains after an enormous volcanic eruption. This island slopes downward to the Aegean Sea. Several towns are perched along the cliff.

Oia is a scenic and popular village on the northern edge of the caldera (a large volcanic crater) that forms the island of Santorini within the Cyclades (an island group in the Aegean Sea). The town has clusters of white washed buildings, blue domed churches, bell towers, charming shops/ hotels, traditional Cycladic and cave houses that are carved into the rock on the cliff. It is set in a location with breathtaking views of the sunset over the white houses and the caldera.

Oversea Restaurant Imbi

oversea restaurant imbi wedding

This restaurant is loved by all for its delicious food particularly the barbecue pork (char siew). The Oversea Imbi is a famous restaurant for treating guests from other countries/ states, located at a very busy spot at Jalan Imbi, KL, hence parking could be a problem. Here you can still see the self appointed "parking attendants" collecting money from car owners.

While it is a popular Oversea restaurant outlet, nothing much has been mentioned about its wedding services. There are some pillars in the banquet hall.

de Pré-mariage Photoshoot à Paris

I've been told Paris is the most romantic city in the world. Then again I remember my ex-boss telling me he found nothing "romantic" about Paris... it is simply a bustling city full of people. This city is definitely a popular location for pre-wedding photoshoot: Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, Pont des Arts, Notre Dame Cathedral, Palais Garnier (Opera House), etc. I have not been to Paris but would love to experience it for myself one day if love is really flying all over the air of Paris and visit beautiful places like these:

Restaurant Oversea Subang Parade

Wedding Packages 2018:from RM798nett | Capacity: 800 pax | Oversea is a well established brand in Malaysia F&B scene for Chinese cuisine. The Subang Parade outlet particularly is famous for wedding banquets. They have the experience and basic amenities in organizing medium sized wedding receptions. This is a good option if you are looking for quality food at an attractive price and good parking access/ availability at the shopping mall. Their staffs are friendly and efficient. However some part-timers have not been trained very well. The design of the banquet hall is of long rectangular shape, the guests at the back may not be able to view what is happening in front at the stage clearly.

To be improved are the equipment such as the projector screens, and time management. Dishes served should be paced out at the right intervals to ensure comfortable dining of the guests.

Macalister Mansion Penang

The name Macalister Mansion honours Colonel Norman Macalister, one of the first British Governors of Penang (then known as Prince of Wales Island) from 1808 – 1810. Colonel Norman Macalister also gave his name to Macalister Road, where the boutique hotel is situated. Within Macalister Mansion, there are different spaces which are branded as distinct rooms found in an actual mansion – Dining Room, The Den, Living Room, The Cellar, The Lawn and Eight Rooms.

The Lawn offers the perfect space to have an outdoor wedding by the pool. The dining room looks perfect in white with quirky interiors and great lighting. This classy venue is most suitable for holding a small, elegant and dreamy reception. The person in-charge of wedding event planning is polite and friendly. However the bad follow up and lack of transparency may send some potential customers away. 

Macalister Mansion is designed around the idea of an old English mansion where guests can enjoy that traditional warm ‘home’ hospitality but with all the conveniences of modern technology. You can book their eight tastefully designed rooms for guests who require overnight stay. Encompassing all day dining and casual space to hang out, Living Room offers a delectable selection of local cuisine and international flavours.

Celebrate your wedding in style

Dec 2013
The dining room looks perfect in white with quirky interiors, dreamy and classy! The person I had been dealing with via emails and whatsapp messages "X" was all smiles and polite. I wrote to X telling her we decided to go with the 'chicken menu', priced at 120++ per pax for 60 pax and will book all 8 uniquely decorated rooms of Macalister Mansion. Emails were exchanged for the menu selection, still a lil on the pricey side but within our budget. At that time, we knew we had to have our wedding done in this place.

Then, it pretty much went downhill. This whole recount of event was based solely on our experiences with Macalister Mansion. It was really a beautiful place with great lighting for a small wedding reception, but too bad it didn't work out for us because of the bad follow up and lack of transparency. We found out so many additional costs much later (PA systems, using the courtyard, breakfast for room guests etc etc) and were IGNORED - seriously the worst thing one business should do to their customers.

Alex and Mun Wai wedding reception has been held at the Macalister Mansion. This place has give me a Woo factor somehow specially in their decoration (simple and yet elegant feel). Feel like I am Alice in the Wonderland. But seriously, I love the mood there. (And the room is very cozy in deed). :")
Anyway, A small dinner with some really great food. Where all the attendees could just get close together to talk and chat. the dinner ended with a short portrait session around the mansion compound with Mun Wai and Alex.

Levitation Wedding Photography

Conceptual photography is unique and fun. Imagine yourself defying gravity and floating freely in the air. To create levitation photos for weddings, have the couple stand or lie down on a support object such as a stool,
  • Use a software (such as Snapheal) to erase the stool and you will create the impression that your model is floating in the air. 
  • The second method is to take two photos which are framed identically; one with the model and the second one without it. Post processing can be done in Adobe Photoshop with layer masks. [Instructions here]
To create a more dramatic scene, capture the image in an open field with debris flying around, like the bride is going to be pulled by a storm, and the partner tries to rescue her.
