THEME & CONCEPT
Having a clear vision of what they wanted for the theme of their wedding made planning their two-part event a breeze. Florence’s heart was set on a church ceremony, so the couple instinctively decided to hold it at The White Rabbit, a beautifully restored 1930s Ebenezer chapel, without scouting for alternative venues. The high ceilings and abundance of natural light set up the perfect backdrop for an intimate solemnisation ceremony and luncheon. Entertainment was provided by Live Conclusions.
Their dinner reception a week later at Capella Singapore was just as well planned, and consequently, just as stunning. Again, picking the venue was an easy choice. “The Grand Ballroom—the only round ballroom in Singapore—is unique,” says Florence. “We felt it represented going full circle in our relationship; we were right where we started—choosing to embark on our next journey together.”
In stark contrast to the pastel colour palette at their church ceremony, the couple went with a darker, more sensual theme for the evening event, even decking the ballroom out in black tablecloths, and deep purple and pink blooms from Boenga. Florence attributes the successful ambience and decor—which received praises from friends and family—to the florist. Artistes from Compass Entertainment kept the mood buoyant throughout.
