Wild orchids and a thank you note

When making flowers for hantaran, I'm always intrigued to explore more and make something out of the ordinary using materials available around me. That's why you may find that most of the creations here in Anggerik Weddings are unique in its own style; as each of them is carefully crafted in harmony compositions of colour, shape and textures. My journey in perfecting the arrangement is still far though, I am anyway, a newbie in this demanding and challenging industry.
Nevertheless, i enjoy every moment i spent making flowers and building up AnggerikWeddings in this virtual diary here. It's been a wonderful year (yes we turned one last March! no birthday party pun :O). So i do hope that you loyal clients, readers, family and friends will stay along with me through this journey, till sometime someday, Anggerik Weddings will fully bloom into something pretty and inspiring to everybody. Thank you so much dearies for all support given, opportunities handed to us and most of all, thank you for believing in AnggerikWeddings. :)

I leave you with some pictures of dip orchids i did recently; pretty yellow ones with orangey center.

Till then, take care and happy working!

Anggerik Weddings in the media :)

Last February, I received a call from Fatin, a journalist in the all-time favourite wedding magazine published by Karangkraf (can you guess which magazine is it already? hehe). We were invited to do a photoshoot of hantaran arrangement with given theme (Modern & Unique).
So then appointments were made, flowers were carefully picked, pretty photos were taken & processed, and Alhamdulillah, our hantaran will be featured in the shiny pages of May issue in Pesona Pengantin, available tomorrow! So make sure you'll drop by your local magazine shop to get fresh new copies of that hot selling magazine! I can't wait for it myself, will definitely drop by the shop first thing tommorow morning :D (lepas gosok gigilah tapi :P) . For Fatin & Ben (and her friend!), thank you so much for the opportunity & trust given, we are truly honoured to be working with you guys and be included in a magazine that needs no introduction :D
So until you get that copy in hand, let's have a look on some behind-the-scene photos first, shall we?
