In an age when we communicate so much through social networks, it’s now normal that that should be the place where two people to come to know each other, talk and learn about each other, and build that relationship into full love. When love ripens and matures, it’s the auspicious time for those two hearts to join in a life together.


Khun Golf and Khun Lek first met through social networks; one of Golf’s best friends introduced them and got them chatting on their BlackBerry’s. After getting to know each other for some time, Golf invited Lek and her friends to join his birthday celebration in Melbourne, Australia their first face-to-face meeting. Afterwards they kept talking, chatting, and building their relationship, caring for each other and caring for each other’s family as well. As the days passed the feeling grew ever stronger that “this is the one.” In the end, the decision was made and the wedding bells rang out as they promised to love and cherish each other forever.

The couple began looking for a wedding planner to take care of their special event, and decided to take on Chic Planner to organize and manage their wedding in entirety, impressed with weddings they had seen Chic take on and confident that Chic would fulfill their wishes to the utmost. The color theme for the wedding was “Burgundy red” as the bride was born on a Sunday (red is the color associated with Sunday in Thailand). The backdrop was festooned with dark red roses, flown in from Kenya specially for the occasion, interspersed with green stems to represent the groom, born on a Wednesday. The bride wanted a western-style, sophisticated and elegant wedding, so VIP tables decorations were made with real European crystal. Dinnerware and flatware was also switched out for a more elegant choice, along with tables draped in sleek black cloths trimmed out with silvery lines of diamond stitching.  Oversized, tall illuminated “light fountains” were erected throughout the wedding space to give guests the tantalizing feel of being transported into an elegant and luxurious fairytale land.

The highlights of this nuptial celebration from the illuminated fountains to the massive number of dark red roses spread everywhere cloaked the entire event in an atmosphere of sophisticated beauty. Guests were delighted and marvelled at the event’s interior decor. Thanks for all of this goes to Chic Planner to help design and look after, down to the smallest detail, every part of the wedding’s grandeur. The day made a real impression and was a true success.

Love that starts from intimacy and is nurtured in the bonds of relationship leads a couple to this day: the day they decide to start their lives together as one.

Khun “Toffee” and Khun “Rung” first met in college. Studying in the same classes together, they started with friendly meet-ups and talk that soon led to the decision to be a couple. After eight years of growing more and more into each other, they decided to take the plunge and tie the knot.
Bride and groom chose the Renaissance Hotel, and took on Chic Planner to look after organizing every aspect of their wedding after seeing an example of Chic’s work that made a big impression on them. They entrusted Chic to create a spectacular floral wedding, with flowers covering every inch of their wedding, since both bride and groom were flower-lovers and wanted something special. Chic Planner came through with elegant results.

Guests coming into the wedding hall first met a registration table decked out in flowers. Just beyond that, an enormous wall of flowers awaited guests’ group shots as dramatic floral backdrop. Once inside, they’d run into a dazzling wall of giant orchids, along with bouquets. A chandelier made entire of crown flowers (in Thai, “love flowers”) and adorned with crystals was draped from the ceiling, setting off beguiling twinkles. A dining table was built special-order for the wedding and decked out in French lace and set with flowering vases. Even the base of the cake stand was covered in flowers to match everything else in the room.

This wedding was outstanding in its use of fresh flowers, especially orchids, in decorating every nook and cranny of the event space. Aside from being visually stunning, the flowers created a beautiful aroma; like the scent of the couple’s ripening love, sweet and fragrant. Toffee, the bride, gave big thanks to Chic Planner for their help creating her dream wedding and the professionalism of their team. Thanks to their careful attention to detail everything came out perfectly and made a lasting impression.

LOVE BEYOND THE HORIZON

Khun Shin Ju Ah  and Khun Sarawut   Rachanakul

Centara Grand at Central Plaza Ladprao Bangkok

 


Love Beyond the Horizon
Different nationalities or even different languages are no match for true love. For Yun Sarawut, a sincere and striving heart was what it took for him to win over the heart and hand of Korean actress, Shin Ju Ah. In courting her, he charmed not his bride-to-be, but also her entire family and friends. So their wedding became a classic romantic-and-family affair, done up in the midst of a sea of flowers, all in traditional matrimonial white.

When Love Was Born
The couple first met while Shin Ju Ah was in Thailand on holiday with a friend. Khun Yun was doting and caring during the entire time she was in the kingdom, though at the time they could barely communicate with each other—Shin Ju Ah only spoke Korean! But love conquers all and, after two years of them discovering each other’s hearts and language—Yun gathered up all his courage and made the treak to Korea to ask Shin Joo’s family for their blessing to make it official.

White Classic Entrance
The wedding planner came up with an all-white entranceway, decorated in the front with photos of the bride and groom, and the walkway into the wedding hall cordoned off to both left and right with walls completely covered with bouquets of small flowers sprinkled with white rose petals. In the center a white peacock stood nobly over a fireplace. All of this was designed to draw guests eyes and focus their gaze on the wedding event, and counter the distractions of the surrounding hotel atmosphere.

Orchid Backdrop
White orchids were extravagantly arranged on a backdrop to just properly balance the Thai touch with a classic traditional wedding motif. The groom had requested that the wedding be realized with elegant and luxurious simplicity, and use as few flowers as necessary, per the Korean style. Thus, the planner gathered all of the floral beauty into this single point for the pleasure of Thai wedding guests.

Luxurious Crystal on Stage
The central stage was lavishly decorated with over 100 crystals, sending flickers and sparks of light twinkling all across the stage. Directly in the center, a gazebo draped in pure white cloth and adorned with pure white roses anchored the stage—the groom’s idea, inspired by Korean-style outdoor weddings. An oversized chandelier was hung from the gazebo to lend an air of refinement, then dressed with gypso flowers lit with candles to create romantic atmosphere. A tall catwalk-style was included on the main stage, decorated with pots of gypso flowers and classically-styled water fountains from end to end of the catwalk. In the end, everything fulfilled the bride’s utmost wishes for a less-adorned—and not overdone with flowers pure white wedding swathed in elegance, luxury and romance.

Special Wedding Cake
Yun and Shin Ju’s wedding cake was placed on a stand at the end of the center aisle, surrounded on all four sides by oversized pots with bushy floral arrangements. A Continental style special-order cake, designed exclusively for the bride and groom’s wedding, took center stage. Beautifully dazzling all-white and well over two meters tall, it drew in all eyes for the traditional cake-cutting ceremonies.

Romantic Ceremony
The ceremony began as the groom entered onto the stage, en route to meet Shin Ju Ah, herself walking down the aisle with her father. Before groom, bride, and bride’s father met at the end of aisle, where her father would give away the bride to ascend onstage with the groom, Khun Yun surprised and moved everyone to tears when he prostrated himself at his bride’s father’s feet. During their interview, bride and groom made almost unbearably sweet promises of eternal love and fealty, followed after by a video presentation of scenes from the couple’s pre-wedding photoshoot at a beautiful seaside location. Finally the couple headed off to cut the cake and ceremonially toss the bride’s bouquet. Crowded to overflowing with single ladies both Korean and Thai, this bouquet toss didn’t need a word of explanation or hype from the master of ceremonies to get these women excited to catch the bouquet and see who’d be next in line to tie the knot!

Thai Style & Korean style
Korean style weddings are very similar to western church-based ceremonies. Bride and groom are separated and kept apart until the wedding officially begins. The bride enters on her father’s arm, and then her father gives her away to her new husband-to-be, after which bride and groom proceed onstage together. The best man and bridesmaid also come on stage to sing and dedicate their songs to the happy couple. After that, the couple cuts the wedding cake—in Korea, massive, authentic pound cake is preferred. The entire ceremony takes about one hour, and there are usually no more than 200 guests present: usually only close friends and family. Guests sit in assigned seating and there is no standing, and no food served during the ceremony. Instead guests receive food coupons for the after-service banquet held elsewhere in the hotel.

Cultural Compromise
– Koreans stick to a simple color palette with few ostentatious colors. For this wedding, white was the color of choice, to easily control color coordination. An all-white photo backdrop, however, lacks visual flair, so it was adjusted by adding mirrored glass to give an opulent feeling to the backdrop.
– Koreans use flowers only sparingly. Flowers were inserted at various spaces in the ceremony: on tables and along aisles, to add detail and dimension.
– A long catwalk was installed, as Korean weddings normally have, that extended all the way to the end of the stage. The planner adapted this to fit a more Thai style by adding an additional stage for the cake at the end of the walk and adding some decorative details to the sides of the walkway.
– Both Thailand and Korea have different approaches to shooting pre-wedding photos. Koreans mostly shoot in studio, where they can set all the elements and create a life-like look: anything from a garden setting to various rooms and indoor locations. Most couples who want to shoot outdoors go abroad to take their photos.
For their pre-wedding shoot in Korea, Khun Yun and Shin Ju Ah didn’t have any specific concept in mind, they only asked that the images look good, stylish, and most importantly, stay focused on the bride and groom above all else. With the focus almost entirely on the couple, their wardrobe, hair, and makeup had to be completely on-point. Shin Ju Ah took on the job of personally finding the right studio that, in the end, produced beautiful, perfect pictures that met the approval of both bride and groom.
