Cindy and Tuan Hung’s Wildflower Garden Wedding at 1-Atico
After falling in love with 1-Atico on their first visit, Cindy and Tuan Hung decided to tie the knot at the beautiful and airy restaurant.
Cindy and Tuan Hung was match-made by a common friend. Interest definitely sparked in Cindy when she saw him on Instagram, but Tuan Hung took a little while to discover her kind and bubbly nature, and eventually found himself enjoying her company. A long story short, the sweet pair found love with one another as they got to know each other better. Since they officially became an item at a 1-Group restaurant, Cindy and Tuan Hung wanted to tie the knot at another of 1-Group’s restaurants. Upon their first visit, they fell in love with the floor-to-ceiling windows and high ceiling at 1-Atico, and the rest as they say, is history.
What is it about your partner that you love the most?
Tuan Hung: I love how supportive she is of me and the things I enjoy doing.
Cindy: I love how he respects me so much and always put me first in everything. He never disregards my feelings too in every situation.
What was the proposal like?
Cindy: He told me it was a Christmas dinner with his colleagues at Dusk. When we arrived at the carpark, he walked towards another side and told me his friends were there waiting for him. While walking, I saw balloons and fairy lights. That’s when I knew he was going to pop the question instead of a Christmas dinner gathering!
Tell us about your wedding.
Both: We chose 1-Atico as our wedding venue. We officially became an item at one of 1-Group’s restaurants, so we were looking at their restaurants while we were looking for a venue. When we visited 1-Atico, we simply fell in love with the windows and high ceiling at the designated solemnisation area at the restaurant, so we decided to have ours there.
We wanted to have a wildflower inspired garden wedding and we are incredibly thankful that our fellow vendors helped us bring our vision to life! To help us visualise the look, they came up with mood boards and illustrations of the decorations.
What was your wedding day like?
Tuan Hung: It was tiring, but definitely happy! I was so excited the night before that I couldn’t sleep. Our wedding day went accordingly to plan and I was amazed to see how beautiful my wife looked that day. When we arrived at the venue, we were absolutely in love with how the place was done up! Having our beloved friends and loved ones gathered there made the place look even better and heartwarming.
Cindy: I was so excited to marry my best friend and couldn’t sleep the night before. I even woke up earlier to prepare myself! It was definitely tiring but my heart was so full that day. I’m so glad that everything went smoothly and accordingly to plan, all thanks to our groomsmen and bridesmaids, as well as our fellow vendors!
It was also great to see our family and friends gather and witness our union after so many changes to due the pandemic.
Share with us the most memorable moment of your wedding?
Our wedding day was actually the birthday of our friend who match-made us, so we surprised him with his favourite strawberry cake and sang him birthday songs! Without him, this ceremony would not have happened.
What is one lesson you’ve learned from your wedding planning that you’d like to share with other couples?
Enjoy the process with your partner, don’t rush into it! Also, don’t be too stressed if things don’t go the way you want, because honestly, there are no perfect weddings!
