Samantha & Yan Ming's Peranakan-themed Wedding

Color:

Globetrotting couple Yan Ming and Samantha love travelling so much that they decided to incorporate their shared passion into their wedding decor at Indocafe The White House - a restored colonial house filled with Indo-Peranakan culture and cuisine. The venue came alive with bunting, fairy lights and vintage-looking props, plus a honeymoon voting area set-up for guests to nominate destinations for their next adventure.

With only three months to the actual day, the couple decided to bite the bullet and engage Perfect Unity to help with the wedding planning, coming up with an appropriate Peranakan-themed wedding to suit the location. Of course, there were many little decorative details that also showcase the pair's love for travel.

To make the event more lively and intimate, they engaged a saxophonist and guitarist band to entertain the crowd with live music. “We wanted something casual and more relaxing where everyone could just mingle and enjoy the party," says Yan Ming.

Despite the wet weather season, the sky cleared just in time for their solemnisation ceremony to be held outdoors in the courtyard of the restaurant. Judging by these photos, the party was filled with lots of fun and laughter with lots of audience participation. Guests were given bubbles to blow for the couple's second march-in, and instead of the traditional yam seng, they settled for a classy champagne toast and cake-cutting.

To end off the jubilant night of festivities, the singles were all gathered outside for the ceremonial bouquet toss!
