Vin­tage Verve

Proof that two hearts beat bet­ter than one, the in­ti­mate union be­tween Vicky Hung and Kane Lightowler saw cel­e­bra­tion themes of travel and vin­tage lux­ury come to­gether to spec­tac­u­lar ef­fect

Malaysia Tatler Wedding - - CELEBRATIONS -

chance meet­ing in Syd­ney in 2010 even­tu­ally led to ro­mance for bank­ing pro­fes­sional Vicky Hung and Kane Lightowler, the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor at a cy­ber se­cu­rity soft­ware com­pany. The cou­ple’s de­ci­sion to re­lo­cate to Sin­ga­pore to­gether in 2013 was a clear sig­nal of their com­mit­ment to each other. Still, Vicky was sur­prised when the fol­low­ing year, while on a Euro­pean va­ca­tion, Kane pro­posed to her in the city of love, Paris. She shares, “It hap­pened while we were on the lawn in front of the Sacré-Coeur Basil­ica. Lit­tle did I know that he had also or­gan­ised for sev­eral pho­tog­ra­phers to dis­creetly cap­ture the mo­ments lead­ing up to the pro­posal and the pro­posal it­self!”

With the cou­ple’s friends and fam­ily jet­ting in from Aus­tralia, Thai­land, Tai­wan and the US for the cel­e­bra­tion, travel formed one half of the cel­e­bra­tion theme. The other half was vin­tage lux­ury. Plan­ner Chère: Wed­dings & Par­ties wove the two themes to­gether to cre­ate a cel­e­bra­tion like no other.

In­vi­ta­tion cards were de­signed to look like pass­ports and came with a travel guide to Sin­ga­pore, while favours came in the form of per­son­alised vin­tage-style leather bag­gage tags. Two days be­fore the big day, over­seas guests were taken on a spe­cially ar­ranged tour where they soaked up the city’s sights and sounds and tucked into lo­cal cui­sine.
