Wedding Décor Couture by Bryan Chew
Bryan Chew’s Profile
At a young age of 24, Bryan inherited his family’s floral business. To aid him in his floral design and creative skills, Bryan completed a series of workshops with renowned flower design centers both in Asia and Europe. His tremendous growth in the floral industry has made him a force to reckon with in the field of creative floral arrangements from small- to large-scale events.
Over the last 15 years, he has experiences particularly in destination décor, which requires exquisite tailor-made design to suit the specific ambience. Also, he has undoubtedly expanded into first-aid flowers and customizing designs when unforeseen circumstances occur that can still spice up the theme and ambience perfectly. His impeccable work has earned him numerous requests to various locations such as Bali, Cambodia, Singapore, and throughout Malaysia to decorate for corporate and wedding events.
