Everything for a dream wedding
Story and Photosby DEBBIE CHAN
A DREAM-LIKE fantasy and romance cloaked Carcosa Seri Negara when it held its first Bridal Fair in collaboration with weddingsmalaysia.com recently.
The fair was also aimed at promoting Carcosa Seri Negara as a potential venue for couples intending to tie the knot.
Being a heritage building, the hotel presents an exclusive location, luxurious ambience and a distinctive setting for such a memorable event, said general manager Carla Petzold-Beck.
The photography aspect of the wedding was represented by ex-hibitors like Signature Photogra-phers, Covershots and The Wedding Shop, Manggis, Davelab Motion, and KidChan Studio.
Wedding planners were represented by Tres Beau Momento, I Do Weddings, and Events Wizard.
Couples looking for floral arrangement were awed by One Red Lily, Garden Fairies, and Floral Etc while de-Catano, Margaret Mccallum Weddings and That Special Occas-sion presented an array of wedding gowns and suits.
Other services, including cards, gifts and chocolate decor, were represented by Sunflower, Wicked Wax, Beauty Haven, Just Heavenly, Chocolate Chapters, Pernod Ricard, The WeddingCard Shop, Eleena Lamat and Avicenna Studio. High fashion jewellers Mouawad also participated in the fair with their exquisite and creative pieces of jewellery.
Also present at the exhibition were the representatives of The Saujana, The Datai and The An-daman that are sister properties of Carcosa Seri Negara under GHM Hotels and Resorts.
Among of the prizes that were up for grabs were a Carcosa Seri Negara honeymoon package worth RM2,450, photography package by Covershots worth RM5,000, spe-cially designed wedding gown and veil worth RM2,000 from the Wedding Shop, bridal make-up and hairstyling by Beauty Haven, a three-tier wedding cake from Just Heavenly, bottles of wine from Pernod Ricard, and 300 pieces of chocolate treats from Chocolate Chapters.
