An evening at the Raffles

It was a lucky evening. We went from Plan A(outdoors) to Plan B(indoors) and back to Plan A (outdoors)as the weather cleared up in time.

The evening started with guests enjoying their cocktails in the Palm Courtyard of Raffles Hotel during sunset and swaying to the voices of Equivox. The couple made a small walk-in across the courtyard with guests throwing rice on them and flower girls blowing bubbles in the air. At the top of the East India room steps, they exchanged their personal vows which brought tears to the eyes of some guests!  

Red had been chosen for the theme, which complemented the classic look of Raffles Hotel. Deep red roses were used in the flower decorations and the wedding party wore pink cymbidium orchids tied with red satin ribbons. Each guest was given a chinese style porcelain teacup  wrapped perfectly in black boxes(favours) and a small note listing out 10 random facts about the couple.   

The evening continued with a string of speeches by the Father of the Bride, the Groom and the Bestman. Live jazz music was provided by Shili and Adi throughout the night making the evening even more intimate, relaxed and romantic.
