UN­FOR­GET­TABLE PRO­POSAL

Herworld Brides (Singapore) - - Wedding Albums -

It took place dur­ing a rick­shaw ride through the Arashiyama bam­boo grove of Ky­oto, Ja­pan. I was led to be­lieve that we were there to cel­e­brate my par­ents’ an­niver­sary. Mid­way through the ride, I heard our song

Wouldn’t It Be Nice by the Beach Boys. Roy, who’d dis­guised him­self as my rick­shaw driver, had flown in a string quar­tet from Osaka to per­form it live! It was such an in­ti­mate and grand pro­posal, and I said the most im­por­tant “yes” in my life.

FAM­ILY UNITY Our fam­i­lies hold tra­di­tions and her­itage close to our hearts, and we like to fol­low our cus­toms dur­ing im­por­tant oc­ca­sions while in­ter­pret­ing them with modern touches. Through­out the cel­e­bra­tions, we re­ally felt the com­ing to­gether of our fam­i­lies.

1 Ch­eryl and Roy bowed and gave thanks to their par­ents be­fore pro­ceed­ing with the tea cer­e­mony. 2 Joy and hap­pi­ness dur­ing their frst-look mo­ment. 3 Ch­eryl trav­elled in a sedan car­ried by the grooms­men. Later, af­ter the cer­e­monies, her hus­band car­ried her into the bridal room – a mo­ment they both found es­pe­cially mean­ing­ful. 4 The brides­maids wore red with man­darin col­larscum-chok­ers. 5 Ch­eryl com­ple­mented her qun kua with lav­ish gold and sil­ver em­broi­dery with equally or­nate head­pieces. 6 The modern theme of their lunch re­cep­tion was in­spired by the vi­brant colours of a pea­cock.

OP­PO­SITE Ch­eryl’s fa­ther, Mervin Wee, holds a red um­brella to sym­bol­i­cally ward off any neg­a­tive el­e­ments as she leaves her home with Roy.
