For those multi-cultural couples out there, we spent less than $15000 AUD for everything already. Including my parents’ flights, our accommodations before and after the wedding, 55 persons with 3-course meal.
Please do contact me if you need help preparing your wedding. We got our stuff from the Philippines, Singapore (where I used to be based) and here in Australia.
For my own reference, and to help other couples have a rough idea about how much is it to have a simple wedding like ours, I’ve come up with a table of our Suppliers and their prices. I will share it if you need it.

On how good the videos and photographs are, I can’t say yet as I haven’t seen the results 2weeks post-wedding. Why are they taking a bit long? I am not sure and I really don’t care. So long as I get them eventually. I am not sure about your own urgency, but I don’t really feel like rushing artists. =)
Mr. Hobson was great. Nice sunset view, yummy food, great people to deal with.
Cake, was super yummy and affordable. Mr. Hobson helped cut it as dessert and embellished it with jelly-like toppings which made it heavenly.
Shades of Sheryn was good. She made us look beyond presentable during the wedding.
Mimi was fun and easy to work with.
Simon is a friend to my lovely groom, so he didn’t charge us but to thank him for his help, we….. He’s very talented, seriously very very good!
To our suppliers, thank you so so much!
