Singapore Tatler Wedding - - DREAMS -

any­thing, be­cause the groom’s fa­ther Steven Seow, a dis­cern­ing gour­mand, took it upon him­self to lend his as­tute palate for the se­lec­tion. He worked not just with the chef at Capella, but also Möet Hen­nessy and Rémy Coin­treau to en­sure the drinks paired per­fectly with the dishes. Guests were treated to ex­quis­ite tipple such as Ruinart Blanc de Blanc, Hen­nessy Par­adis Im­périal and Do­maine Du Grol­let. “We recog­nised the im­por­tance of show­ing our re­spect to our friends and fam­ily with fine food and drinks to ac­com­pany them through­out the evening’s events,” says Damian. While the cou­ple says they could not have pulled off their hic­cup-free cel­e­bra­tions without the help of their wed­ding plan­ner Our Fairy­tale Wed­ding and the var­i­ous pro­fes­sion­als, it was, as with most wed­dings, the in­volve­ment of fam­ily as well as close friends that made their big day that much more mem­o­rable.

One par­tic­u­lar in­di­vid­ual who went all out for the event was, again, the groom’s fa­ther. A month be­fore the big day, the car en­thu­si­ast took de­liv­ery of a Rolls-Royce Dawn con­vert­ible—the first one in Sin­ga­pore— be­cause he had in­sisted the cou­ple tie the knot with a white car.

And it seems his fel­low car afi­ciona­dos were just as ded­i­cated to the oc­ca­sion. Mid­way through their an­nual Fer­rari drive from Sin­ga­pore to Phuket, sev­eral of Steven’s friends paused their trip just to fly home to Sin­ga­pore for the wed­ding ban­quet. The next day, they were back at their wheels and cruis­ing through Phuket.

As joy­ous as wed­dings should be, they would not be com­plete without a few tears shed. Dur­ing the day cel­e­bra­tion, Florence’s best friend made a heart­felt speech, which moved the bride. “I was aware that she would be mak­ing a speech, but I was not ready for the touch­ing words of bless­ings and in­sights she had brought,” she re­calls. “That was truly mem­o­rable for me.”
