About us

WAF – Weddings.Arts.Fashion is a carefully curated event that will see the best in the industries come together to push the boundaries of the wedding scene in Malaysia. The only bridal event really worth your time, this is where everything you’ve seen online comes to life.

The Team

WAF is a collaborative effort by leading vendors in the wedding industry, brought together by Wong Chai Yen and Andros Xavier Chan of The Wedding Notebook, and Elaine Yuen and Iz Mady of Funkydali. Together, they harbour a great desire to bring the local wedding industry to new heights.

Chaiyen

Founder and creative director of The Wedding Notebook, an online magazine with a great desire to push the wedding industry in the region to the next level. She also has her own design house, Crossline Studio, which has been working with renowned publishing houses in both Malaysia and Singapore for more than a decade.

Elaine

She spent half a decade in the advertising industry before co-founding Funkydali. An all-rounder who is known to “mother” people she meets, she brings warmth and cheer to everyone she works with, young and old. As the link between creativity and practicality, she tries to strike the right balance for both the couple and the photographer every time.

Andros

Andros is a former banker with his fair share of experience in wedding planning. A self-proclaimed fashion obsessed metrosexual gentleman, he’s always giving his friends advice on fashion, grooming and style. Armed with a great interest in fashion and a detailed understanding of the anatomy of men’s suits, he now shares his knowledge and passion with grooms-to-be through The Wedding Notebook.

Iz Mady

A self-taught photographer, he spent almost a decade in design and advertising before getting into photography. Known for his creative flair and eye for detail, he brings both to his work. Constantly gaining knowledge and being experimental are just two of the factors that drive his success at Funkydali.
