Singapore Tatler Wedding - - DREAMS -

On their vi­sion for their big day, Glo­ria says, “We wanted the event to in­vite ev­ery­one to step out of their mun­dane ev­ery­day life to truly cel­e­brate love and cre­ate new ad­ven­tures and mem­o­ries.”

The solem­ni­sa­tion cer­e­mony took place in Septem­ber 2016 at a sprawl­ing Ri­d­ley Park res­i­dence, which was decked out in blue, white and navy, with plenty of flow­ers and fairy lights. Live rib­eye carv­ing and prata sta­tions, as well as a dessert ta­ble by Lit­tle House of Dreams fu­elled con­ver­sa­tions. The bride wore a Romona Keveza toga gown from Belle & Tulle Bridal while the groom was spiffy in a three-piece suit from Boss.

Two months later, the cou­ple were in a Rolls-Royce Ghost on the way to The RitzCarl­ton, Mil­lenia Sin­ga­pore for a Great Gatsby-style fete to mark their union. Evok­ing the splendour of the 1920s, a navy and gold colour pal­ette was used in the ball­room decor and seen in ev­ery­thing from the stage back­drop to ta­ble run­ners. To bring out the decadence of The Great Gatsby, large feather sprays were used in the ta­ble cen­tre­pieces, at the bar coun­ters and in stage dec­o­ra­tions. The five-tiered cake bore the colour con­trasts and geo­met­ric and an­gu­lar shapes unique to 1920s Art Deco de­signs. Seven brides­maids donned navy dresses while the grooms­men sported black suits and black ties.

A strings trio played as guests im­bibed cock­tails, nib­bled canapes and took fun snaps. Just as Amer­i­can au­thor F Scott Fitzger­ald’s novel would be in­com­plete without liquor-fu­elled back­drops, this party in­dulged guests with be­spoke cock­tails by Elite Bar So­lu­tions. For favours, the cou­ple pre­sented lug­gage tags.
