The vision of the recent Raffles wedding show was to instill a new attitude towards the trends of creating inspiring wedding experiences, and setting a new wave for future wedding shows in the industry. We wanted to create a totally new look and feel for Raffles Romance show, allowing couples to envision designs within spaces. I am really thankful to the management of Raffles Hotel for giving Heaven's Gift this opportunity to work with them, a team who believes in us, a team who has put in much efforts and diligence to make this vision come alive.
And I am also grateful to all my participating partners who stood by us, and everyone taking the extra miles to create impressions that demonstrate who they are in their works in a short span of 3 weeks' planning . Bravo! Guys, you are awesome!!!. Special thanks to Hari & Team from Boenga Flowers & Design, Kim from Divine Couture, Shuming & Chris from Mischka Aoki for the amazing flower girl dresses (Shuming, thank you for believing in me!), Eng Hong and team from 39 East Photography, Ead from Plush Photography, Brian from The Galeria, Chris from More to Purple, David & team from Live Studios, Yang and Nancy from Substance Films, amazing team from Showmakers, Eddy from ET Music.
The outcome of the event : There is excitement in the air, somehow, when there's newness, there's a new faith and new energy. I was reading through all the comments from the couples as well as the partners who have given us the feedback, I was very encouraged. The journey has launched a new level of expectations, and a new wave of looking at wedding experiences. We really believe, more and more couples are looking for intimate weddings. Gone are the days where weddings are large and structured, where couples do not get sufficient time to mingle with the guests, or to enjoy the entire evening in their very own party. Hence, couples are now looking new ways to create intimate events, to break down their celebrations into more than 1 event. The couple will eventually get to create each event differently and accordingly to the dream of the couple and to needs of their guests.
So what is going to be new to couples who are keen to sign up with Raffles Hotel for any of your wedding events (remember, considering breaking one main event into intimate celebrations) :
1) There is an array of food and wines concept you can get to explore with Raffles culinary team
2) The pastry team has introduced many unique and pretty details for your desserts
3) A new floral partner has been brought in to create your beautiful decorations. You now have a choice of flower designs from Boenga Flowers as well as Sir Charles, they will be both assigned florists for your weddings.
4) And most importantly, have you ever dreamt of having your wedding in one of the most historical venue in Raffles Hotel - that's right, the Bar & Billard. It is now open for couple to create private functions. I having been hoping to create a wedding party in this charming restaurant. And when we did the catwalk in Bar & Billard, the venue was just perfect... Love it!
