A wedding is one of life’s main events. Therefore, it is understandable that many bridal couples want to make this special occasion an extremely memorable one. A dream wedding does not necessarily mean it has to be an 800-table reception. It could also be a cosy wedding dinner with family and close friends.
Now, I am no expert when it comes to weddings although I have attended my fair share of them, but as a blogger who has received uncountable enquiries on where is the best outdoor wedding location in Ipoh, it is high time I let you in on the secret.
In my opinion, the best outdoor wedding location in Ipoh is within the property of The Haven Resort Hotel & Residences, where the secret garden could be transformed into a magical ground where guests could dine under the stars.
With the geological wonder of the 280-million-year-old 14-storey high rock named Rockhaven as the backdrop and in a pristine, prehistoric setting, this secret garden is able to accommodate smaller receptions of 50 pax to up to larger ones of 500 guests, depending on the seating arrangement.
Last evening, yours truly, together with invited guests from Ipoh, Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore were given a preview of what could be done should an outdoor wedding reception be hosted at this secret garden.
The wedding showcase was expertly handled by international wedding and social party planner, Spellbound Group, who flew in from Singapore. This collaborative effort with The Haven was mesmerising, to say the least. It was certainly not a fluke shot that The Haven won the World Luxury Wedding Venue Award for 2016.
The Haven does not only provide the perfect setting to host your dream wedding reception. It is also an awesome venue to solemnise your wedding nuptials or for a wedding proposal, flash mob or otherwise.
Ipoh had recently been a tourist destination to be reckoned with and we are seeing more and more travellers, both domestic and international, taking a short break here. Being listed by Lonely Planet as the number 6 Asian destination to visit in 2016 has further shone the spotlight on Ipoh, which also boasts one of the lowest cost cities in Asia to retire in.
Direct flights from Singapore served by both Firefly and Tiger Air meant that the city is just an hour away for Singaporeans. Therefore, this new ‘hipster town’ is fast becoming an ideal alternative for Singaporeans looking to get away from the little red dot for a few days. Obviously, the three-time stronger Singaporean Dollar against Malaysian Ringgit does help!
If you are not aware yet, The Haven Resort Hotel is very conducive for family vacations because every unit comes with two or three bedrooms. These suites provide the opportunity for families to spend quality time together as they are all housed in the same unit, which is not possible in conventional hotels.
By now, you are probably already screaming to know the cost. Well, below is the 2017 Wedding Package at The Haven.
