THEME & CONCEPT
Right after securing Capella Singapore as their wedding venue, the couple appointed The Wedding Entourage to orchestrate a glamorous and elegant event. “Thereafter, we left most of the decisions and planning to our wedding planner Caroline,” says Keith. “As the door opened for our first march-in, we were mesmerised by the fabulous decorations, romantic candle lights and grand table settings. In addition to that, being welcomed by all the special people in our lives made it a special moment we will never forget.”
The gate-crashing festivities included the groomsmen wearing hula skirts. Dressed in a light grey suit with a calla lily corsage, Keith finally “claimed” his bride, who was stunning in a bespoke gown by Silhouette that needed little more accessorising than a bunch of white lilies. The entourage then adjourned to Keith’s home for the Chinese tea ceremony. Instead of a cheongsam, Lily wore a long-sleeved scarlet dress with intricate embroidery on the bodice and topped off the ensemble with pearl earrings and a red hat.
An outdoor solemnisation ceremony was held later that day, with the couple exchanging wedding bands from The Canary Diamond. Later that day, a classy dinner reception at the hotel ballroom saw guests come in their black-tie best. More than half were the groom’s business associates from abroad. The stage was bedecked with strings of shiny beads suspended from the ceiling that danced in the light. Round and long tables were mixed for a modern feel while candelabras and white and pink flowers upped the romance factor.
