A Magical Raffles Hotel Wedding Proposal

A Magical Raffles Hotel Wedding Proposal

When we were engaged by our featured groom-to-be, we initially planned for his once-in-a-lifetime event to be held at the most magical place on Earth - Disneyland!

While it was unfortunate that his plans could not be realised due to COVID government restrictions, we, alongside the couple’s wedding planner and stylist, brought the magic to Singapore instead!

The Wedding Stylist Singapore found the fairest fountain of them all, right in central Singapore’s national monument - Raffles Hotel.

Taking cues from the ornate powder-blue fountain, we opted for a burgundy and blush colour palette.

As shades of complementary colours, the burgundy added a perfect contrast to the cast-iron relic of a bygone era.

Keeping it light and dainty, we paired blush hydrangeas together with dusty red foliage.

One of the focal flowers was a spray of red roses paired with garnet baby’s breath, signifying the groom-to-be’s true love and passion for his life partner.

To recreate Disneyland's magic and ethereal feel, our team got their feet wet by installing some floor arrangements right in the fountain!

The floating pink lily arrangements gave the overall installation depth and added to the sentimental ambience.

When night fell, the beautiful Palm Garden transformed itself into a mystical setting with our finely curated motifs.

Warm lights cast graceful shadows across the courtyard as we set up enchanting pillar candles to enhance the atmosphere.

During the day, we planned that most of the flowers would be subtly lit by the fountain lights and pillar candles.
