Celebrate Love in Luxury, Elegantly with Intercontinental Kuala Lumpur

No, this is not an invitation to you for my wedding. But I had the chance to attend a special wedding presentation by InterContinental Kuala Lumpur. 

When you are planning for wedding (especially when you don't have a wedding planner), can be such a hassle. But you can still have your dream wedding in the city’s leading luxury hotel, InterContinental Kuala Lumpur, with a choice of celebrated banqueting spaces and stylish thematic wedding set-ups - because no matter how large or small the guest list, the hotel’s creative wedding planning team can help to personalise and customize to ensure guests’ weddings are a dream come true. This is what I experienced during the wedding presentation session for media.

A thematic setting, welcome your guests to your wedding.... 

The setting is designed to wow guests, the moment you sit down at your seat. Everything is personalized.
With the experienced wedding team on hand to advise on menus, decorations and mood, guests can be sure that their World of Weddings Packages including Berlian (RM2,388 nett per table, min. 15 tables), Oriental Splendour (RM2,888 nett per table, min. 15 tables), Maharaja (RM2,388 nett per table, min. 15 tables) or I Do (RM2,888 nett per table, min. 15 tables) will be a distinct expression of exclusive romantic elegance and sophistication.

The package comes with exquisite seasonal themed décor including Splendour of Opulence (Autumn), Secret Garden (Summer), Blossoming Petals (Spring) and Enchanted Fairytale (Winter).

On top of that, they will have full access to state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment and side function room facilities.

With 15 years under his belt, the award-winning Chef Wong constantly reinvents and creates new dishes; preferring vivid seasonal flavours and ingredients that are rich in colour and aroma set to impress discerning taste buds.

Tao houses six private rooms all named after the dynasties in China - Han, Song, Tang, Yuan, Ming, and Qin which can be utilised by the guests for all kinds of purposes including the Chinese Tea ceremony with the family. Accommodating up to 100 persons, Tao offers two menu options for guests to select including eight course (RM 2888 nett per table of ten persons) and six course (RM 388. 80 nett per person).

Wedding guests are also presented with a memorable occasion from start to finish, with elegant wedding invite cards sent out beforehand, a special accommodation rate inclusive of breakfast for family and friends and stay at the Bridal suite.

Designed for different markets, the World of Weddings packages offer assorted menu options that are specially created by award-winning chefs; Berlian (Malay cuisine), Oriental Splendour (Chinese cuisine), Maharaja (Indian cuisine) and I Do (Western Buffet). To ensure a seamless and memorable wedding ceremony, guests are treated with a new menu layout featuring chef recommended cuisines, giving guests the opportunity to upgrade their menu based on their liking without compromising the food quality and presentation. The menu enhancement options are available for each course from appetiser, main course and dessert at rates between RM 70 nett and RM 550 nett per table of 10 persons.

To add a bit of international flavour to the guests’ menu, they can incorporate recipes from other InterContinental hotels around the world into their wedding menu package. Let the chefs revive personal memories into the menu flavours such as the Chinese seafood and vegetable stuffed cabbage, Thai crispy sea brass with green mango, bean sprouts and cilantro salad, or French croquembouche.

The soup: Braised North Canadian Lobster Claw with Bird's Nest, Fish Maw in Golden Broth

Braised North Canadian Lobster Claw with Bird's Nest, Fish Maw in Golden Broth
Although I do think that if it's served warm, it will be nice, mine was in room temperature, not that it's bad but I appreciate it more when it's warm 

I am very particular with yam - I am teochew (FYI) - fish is ok, the fruit dressing is not overpowering but I see that the yam ring can be improved

The little, small touches in decor really make the dish much more appreciated!

This is a surprise to me. Apparently, I thought the gu-zheng is from audio/playback, but no... it's live from this lovely lady - I think the planner really know how to impress people! This really showcase how well the planner look into details! 

Braised Australian Five Head Abalone, Morel Mushroom Dumplings, Farm Greens - I want to thank the chef and kitchen team for presenting such beautiful plating and effort. I like the sauce, the black stripe is complementing the mains.

Experience a modest and intimate wedding reception at the Tao Chinese Cuisine, featuring a distinctive peach blossoms setting for guests to celebrate your special day with a perfect blend of authentic Chinese touch and luxury with spectacular, cloud-like inspired ceiling that grants the momentous impression of dining under the stars, some of Tao Chinese cuisine’s most distinguishable and memorable feature are the carefully selected ornate Chinese teapots that have been collected from around Asia and are displayed for guests to enjoy.
