The ballroom doors opened to majestic scenes of the pre-wedding photo shoot in New Zealand playing on loop. The newlyweds then made their entrance to Ed Sheeran’s Tenerife Sea—she channelling romance in an Anne Barge gown, and he in a bespoke tuxedo by Kevin Seah. The cake-cutting and speeches by the couple’s fathers, Tommie Goh and Joseph Cheong, were followed by a dance segment by the couple’s sisters and two bridesmaids—a return gift to Gloria who danced at both her sisters’ weddings previously. Later, the bride emerged in a flowy multicoloured dress by Emanuel B Couture as she and Edward did their first dance to the tune of Endless Love by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie. It was her third gown, a dazzling gold sequinned number from Renee L Collections, that probably signalled that the party was just about to get better. It was matched with a headpiece to suit the Great Gatsby the theme. Jewellery for her various outfits we were from More Than Diamonds, Diamond Ind Industries and from the couple’s mothers. At both wedding events, a live band per performed as guests made merry. There we were also singing performances by Max Su Surin, frontman of popular 1980s local band To Tokyo Square, Gloria’s father, a relative, as w well as family friend Tan Soo Khoon. M More tributes to the couple came in the fo form of a song specially written for them b by Edward’s cousin. What surprised Gloria was her h husband’s delivery of a medley of two s songs—Parachute’s She is Love and W Wang Lee Hom’s Forever Love. “It was t touching, memorable, surprising and heart-warming all at once,” she says.
