A Wedding Planner’s Dreams

Dear Friends,

Beautiful Gathering is a chapter in my life that I am about to close. I want to end it beautifully, to tie a ribbon on it all.

It’s time for me to give back.

I want to give the entire business away, for free. Many wonderful people have helped me along the way to realise this dream of mine and I don't want their efforts to go to waste.

They are many names that come to mind like Jessica Claire Chew, Tan Wei Wei, Leana, Norman Teh, Ilina Ye, Wilson Chua, Jeremy Long, Rubina, Andri Tei, Ivan Tan, Ly Leow, Sarah, Joanne and the list goes on.

The world is cynical with people who are more concerned with  the “I”. Yet, I always believe in creating magic and miracles. I hope the chosen candidate will be able to carry this along with them.

Things you should know:

1) It’s free!
2) Application closes on 30th June 2017.
3) All are welcome to apply!
4) Selected candidates will get to own the Beautiful Gatherings brand, website, portfolio and mentoring and coaching from me and my wedding planner friends and me.
5) When you are ready to give, you do the same for others.
6) Everyone who applies, whether you are chosen or not, will be invited to have a Google Hangout call with me. You can ask me anything!

Who should apply?

Everyone is welcome to apply! If you are a student, a working professional, or a teacher, a designer, a writer or an entrepreneur and you are interested in joining the wedding industryI would love to have you send in an application!

Marriage Preparation – the tough questions to prepare your marriage

Beautiful Gatherings-1

‘Till death do us part’ – a simple statement brimming with profound meanings. Marriage is a winding road filled with unexpected hurdles. For the sake of love so worth fighting for, are you ready to co-pilot this future into unchartered water together?

Most people view marriage as a beginning of a new chapter. It may be right but it is in reality the toughest, most emotional and rewarding chapter of their life. To prepare for it, we realise that expectation is the key ingredient to a successful marriage. An advice given by married couples: ”be open about communicating expectations”. [Matthew Boggs & Jason Miller, 2007]

More than wedding planning and wedding coordination, we gain immense satisfaction seeing fulfilling and happy marriages. Working with many couples and providing wedding coordination has provided us with insights of useful questions prospective wedding couples should know before planning their wedding.

Here is our compilation; we hope its useful in preparing  both of you for the next chapter of your lives.

Wedding Shoot – Tropical Garden


The inspiration for this shoot came from two areas in my life, the fascination of nature’s offerings and my traveling experiences. I grew up in a humble home built by my grandpa. I spent many morning running around in the home, helping mum with garden and eating lots of home cook food. Returning to Asia after a sabbatical in South America, I came back yearning for all the exotic fruits. When I discovered Bollywood Veggies, it almost felt like my playground from the young.

When putting together a garden shoot, I visited the local fruit stall. The red hue of Lychee and blue Mangosteen tones became the anchor of inspiration. Upon tabletop, a hand-died table runner from northern Thailand, placed with stunning florals by Floral Magic, placed in tree-bark containers, and a array tropical fruits for the guests to enjoy. The day set the tone bringing together a quiet happiness and rejoice in the company of closest friends and family.
