Singapore Tatler Wedding - - DREAMS -

The bride wore a be­spoke lace gown from Ri­coA-Mona Bridal’s Garden Col­lec­tion as she walked down the red car­pet on the arm of her beam­ing fa­ther. The sweep­ing soft-laced mermaid gown was in­tri­cately tai­lored with flo­ral de­tails. She had three other out­fits, all grace­ful, and each evok­ing a dif­fer­ent feel. While ca­nary yel­low isn’t a colour nor­mally cho­sen by brides, she car­ried it off with un­mis­tak­able poise at the solem­ni­sa­tion cer­e­mony where she wore a sari from In­dia in the rich colour.

Her wed­ding bling were a com­bi­na­tion of pieces from Larry Jew­elry and CW Jew­els. As a spe­cial gift, Ganesh per­son­ally de­signed her ring and emer­ald ear­rings which were then hand­crafted by a pri­vate jew­eller. “I can still re­mem­ber run­ning to the jew­ellery shop in be­tween see­ing pa­tients and per­form­ing op­er­a­tions,” he re­calls. “See­ing her smile on the big day made ev­ery lit­tle ef­fort worth it.”

Care­ful at­ten­tion was paid to out­fits for the seven brides­maids, too. From girly in flowy pink gowns at the day­time cer­e­mony, they mor­phed into sul­try sirens in satin gold dresses that ac­cen­tu­ated the el­e­gant decor of the St Regis ball­room dur­ing the din­ner re­cep­tion.

The G & L theme was also con­veyed through the cou­ple’s choice of favours, which were hand­made by the dis­abled. It was their way of do­ing good through their wed­ding. “We wanted to give back to so­ci­ety by collaborating with less priv­i­leged in­di­vid­u­als and tap­ping on their po­ten­tial in sim­ple acts of love,” says Lisa.
