A round-up of the Singapore Tatler Weddings Journey of Love celebration
Celebrating love and grand gestures, the 2017 Singapore Tatler Weddings event captured hearts with dazzling jewellery, bespoke gowns, dreamy flowers, top tipple and more big-day inspiration
Entering the warm embrace of the charming Fullerton Hotel, some 300 well-heeled guests were whisked off on a journey of a different kind: the Singapore Tatler Weddings Journey of Love.
The ballroom of the heritage hotel was a spectacular sight, with candles in glass lanterns and pastel-hued blooms lining the aisle and a life-size Tree of Love centrepiece, all set aglow by the glittering chandelier overhead. It was more than just romantic settings and all things beautiful, however, for this was a soiree of substance. Paying tribute
to the many forms of love—not just that between couples, but also between siblings, parent and child, grandparents and grandchildren, and all the significant others who journey with the couple to “I do”—the event opened with a moving mother-daughter (and even grandmother!) walk-in segment to honour the passing of values from parent to child during marriage.
Helping to orchestrate the event was wedding planner Spellbound. After a dazzling presentation of bridal gems by prestigious French jewellery house Chaumet that saw guests whipping out their mobile phones for photos, Edipresse Media Singapore managing director Corinne Ng and group editor Jane Ngiam warmly welcomed guests.
Among them were soon-to-wed couples, married couples and friends, who were given a sneak peek into the magazine’s latest issue.
The entrance of good pals Nada Jumabhoy and Meaghan See wearing bespoke gowns from the Rebecca Caroline atelier marked the start of a model showcase of intricate bridal gowns handmade by the talented dressmaker. Clearly a highlight for many, the appearance of the young ladies drew cheers and applause from the room.
The finale video of secret love notes between three married society couples— Dolly and Bernard Cheong, Yenny and Desmond Neo, and Serene and Benjamin Kim—rounded up the evening on a high before guests freely explored various wedding vendor booths by wedding planner Spellbound, videographer and photographer Allure Weddings, florist Flora Recipe and more. All this, over sparkling exchanges, exquisite canapes by the hotel’s culinary team and delectable concoctions shaken up by bartenders at the evening’s popular wedding bar by The Macallan.
The parting gift for each guest: a goodie bag containing the Spring/Summer 2017 issue of Singapore Tatler Weddings for more beautiful wedding-day inspiration.
