An Intimate Wedding at The Marmalade Pantry
Our couple chose to celebrate their once-in-a-lifetime union among the horses and the surrounding natural greenery in the romantic colonial settings of The Marmalade Pantry at The Stables. Melvin met Joanne while working in the same company and being the quiet and shy guy he is, it took him quite a while to ask her out. He planned an intimate and low-key yet utterly romantic proposal, with a video montage of them and Train’s Marry Me in the background. With a garden themed wedding filled with summer flowers and the cosy-chic settings of Marmalade Pantry, Joanne and Melvin’s wedding was filled with warmth, love and laughter – everything a girl needs for the wedding of her dreams.

Looking at your beautiful wedding photographs just left us feeling all warm and fuzzy! Walk us through your wedding planning and share with us how it felt to have full rein over the planning process.
Melvin pretty much left the planning to me, as he wanted me to have the kind of wedding I wanted. But it was his wedding as much as it was mine, so it was important to get his input too! We decided on a small and intimate wedding with just our family and close friends witnessing our union, and Marmalade Pantry at The Stables was a perfect choice with its intimate set-up and proximity to Mother Nature and animals, two elements I’ve always loved! To complement our warm and intimate reception, we decided on a garden theme with summer flowers for our wedding theme, and Floral Magic did a great job in creating flower arrangements that were a perfect match for our theme.
Having a small and intimate wedding meant that I was able to take time to catch up with my family and friends leisurely throughout dinner, which would have been impossible at a larger scaled wedding dinner. The whole day felt more like a family and friends get-together rather than a formal wedding celebration. Everyone loved that it was different from the usual hotel wedding dinner, and enjoyed the food, drinks and ambience – the most important thing in my opinion!
