FAIRY TALE IN THE WORKS
Before we met with Harijanto Setiawan of Boenga Flowers & Designs, I only knew I wanted the colours to include blush and champagne, and that roses and hydrangeas had to be part of the flower arrangements. Inspired by my ballet background and our love story, he suggested a whimsical fairy-tale concept, which I totally loved. Personally, after sharing my preferences, I prefer to leave it to the pros, so that we can work together without cramping each other’s style.
COMMUNITY OF SUPPORT Roy was every bit the supportive fiance, and so patient and accommodative to my needs. I also received plenty of hands-on help from my wedding planner Clare Yuru of Bliss Pact and Benjamin Tan of Dick Lee Asia, as well as my mum and aunts who worked on the wedding night after night. This community of support allowed me to not sweat the small stuff. A huge thanks to my mum for holding up the sky and moving mountains for me, so I could enjoy the entire wedding journey!
OPPOSITE Cheryl also wore a custom Vera Wang gown in a one-off colour. “I was amazed that it was made for me before the collection was even officially launched,” says Cheryl. 12 The bride’s parents took to the stage to kick off the banquet’s festivities. 13 Tears and joy. 14&15 The resplendent ballroom set the ambience for the musically-styled dinner programme that had the couple singing and dancing for their guests.
