I’m fortunate to work in the mountains, a wedding destination, and to have seen how special it is for couples from outside the area to celebrate at one of our beautiful retreats for a whole weekend.

While the day always has its spontaneity, it helps to plan so that the day can unfold almost of its own accord. Read about this wonderful celebration – again, cross-cultural: Italian-Australian and Chinese Malaysian. The arrangements really are a gift to the guests for being part of the celebrations, and no gifts to the couple was a firm request!
