Judd Sanchez whisks Sonya Dav­i­son away for a dream wed­ding in the beau­ti­ful is­land of Bali

Seen in com­mer­cials as well as tele­vi­sion shows like The Apart­ment, model and tele­vi­sion host Sonya Dav­i­son has a deep ap­pre­ci­a­tion for all things artis­tic. How­ever, just like any other young lady, she has had her fair share of ups and downs when it came to find­ing Mr Right. Her luck changed for the bet­ter when she met her hus­band at the VIP preview party for the grand open­ing of Ku Dé Ta in Ma­rina Bay Sands, Sin­ga­pore. “I at­tended his birth­day party a few months later and we be­came great friends the fol­low­ing year. We would work­out, meet for drinks, and have many lunches and din­ners to­gether, but we were al­ways see­ing other peo­ple,” Sonya re­calls.

One spe­cial day, af­ter a night of end­less con­ver­sa­tion un­til the sun came up, the two fi­nally ex­pressed their feel­ings for each other. “I guess our feel­ings have al­ways been there, but it took that spe­cial mo­ment for us both to re­alise it... fall­ing in love with your best friend is truly the best kind of re­la­tion­ship in my opin­ion,” Sonya re­veals with a con­tent smile. Af­ter get­ting to know each other for more than a year, Judd de­cided to pop the ques­tion. His ro­man­tic pro­posal in­volved a trip to Bali where he pro­posed at sunset on an iso­lated beach trailed with lanterns. He went all out with but­lers and a seven-course meal set out on a four-poster bed. “I hardly ate a thing; I felt like my world was spin­ning in such an amaz­ing way. When he dropped down on one knee, I was sur­prised, dizzy and ab­so­lutely elated! Of course, I said yes, im­me­di­ately,” Sonya tells us.

The cou­ple en­joyed be­ing en­gaged for a year be­fore ac­tively plan­ning the wed­ding. They de­cided on hav­ing it in Bali as they have many ro­man­tic mo­ments there and wanted to share the lo­ca­tion with loved ones. Si­t­u­ated on a cliff top and of­fer­ing a breath­tak­ing ocean view, Villa Lat­i­tude was the per­fect

venue. With Judd’s sup­port and his only re­quest was to have an open bar, Sonya planned her dream wed­ding over the span of two years. She de­signed ev­ery de­tail from the wed­ding cer­e­mony flo­ral arch and the six­tier wed­ding cake down to the nap­kins and cus­tom lo­gos on the goodie bags. The clas­sic, time­less and el­e­gant white theme en­sured that the am­bi­ence of the wed­ding re­cep­tion was noth­ing short of a fairy-tale.

Sonya walked down the aisle with her fa­ther to Time to Say Good­bye by An­drea Bo­celli and then walked out with her hus­band to Viva la Vida by Cold­play. The cer­e­mony in­cluded the re­lease of two white doves and per­son­alised vows which brought the cou­ple to tears. This was fol­lowed by a two-hour free flow cock­tail ses­sion which re­ally got the party go­ing. Thanks to the amaz­ing DJ, guests were danc­ing in be­tween cour­ses and had to be ush­ered back to their ta­bles so they could be served. There were fire dancers and py­rotech­nics dur­ing the cake-cut­ting cer­e­mony, fol­lowed by the bou­quet toss and a spe­cial garter toss con­tain­ing a flask of whisky to en­sure that the guys par­tic­i­pated.
