Your Day, Yours Truly

Singapore Tatler Wedding - - EDITOR’S NOTE -

whether you have been a cou­ple for six months or 12 years, your wed­ding her­alds the start of a life­long covenant to love, to com­fort, to hon­our and to keep the other in joy and in sor­row, in good times and in bad, in sick­ness and in health and to be faith­ful to each other till death do you part. It marks your tran­si­tion from Miss to Mrs, from mak­ing solo de­ci­sions to mak­ing joint ones, and yes, from hav­ing one fam­ily to two. So it is only fit­ting to mark the mo­men­tous oc­ca­sion in the most mag­nif­i­cent and in­ti­mate way pos­si­ble. It is for this rea­son that this is­sue is ded­i­cated to all things be­spoke.

Flip the pages to read about how so­ci­ety’s new­est It cou­ple Ch­eryl Wee and Roy Fong cel­e­brated their nup­tials in a grand fete that fused moder­nity with tra­di­tion for a union that truly re­flected their per­son­al­i­ties and val­ues on page 52. From the wed­ding of the year, the spot­light shifts to three mar­ried d cou­ples in The Yin and Yang of a Happy Mar­riage (page 74). They share anec­dotes on how they’ve bridged their dif­fer­ences to build mar­riages that are so strong yet with the kind of en­ergy usu­ally as­so­ci­ated with new­ly­weds. Also in the Dreams sec­tion, see how other cou­ples ditch pop­u­lar wed­ding themes to put their own spin on their big day for a very per­sonal cel­e­bra­tion. In­deed, if there’s one wed­ding trend that’ll never go out of style, it’s the one that cel­e­brates you.

Else­where, you’ll find dreamy gowns, ex­quis­ite jew­ellery and an achingly beau­ti­ful spread on wed­ding hair­styles to help you make a splen­dorous entrance. Even grooms aren’t left out, with the lat­est in cus­tomis­able suit de­tails to help them ex­press them­selves (page 89). Then, turn to page 118 to feast your eyes on the cre­ations of bou­tique bak­eries which are in­cor­po­rat­ing paint­ing tech­niques, metal­lic touches and even ed­i­ble se­quins to tra­di­tional bou­quet cakes, to cre­ate ed­i­ble art­works in their own right.

Our Top Wed­ding Venues sup­ple­ment re­turns this is­sue and in­cludes some of the new­est event spa­ces set to be the next hot spot for op­u­lent soirees (see them first, from page 147). You’ll also find breath­tak­ing des­ti­na­tions for your hon­ey­moon, and yet more ideas to put a bit of you into ev­ery­thing from favours to fur­nish­ings for your new nest.

As you en­ter the thick of wed­min, re­mem­ber to take time to un­wind and re­con­nect with your other half. To help you do just that, we’ve rounded up the most lux­u­ri­ous spas for the in­au­gu­ral

Sin­ga­pore Tatler Wed­dings Spa Awards (page 100). Af­ter all, as one new bride puts it so suc­cinctly, “get­ting mar­ried is more than just about the grandios­ity of the party, the flow­ers and the wed­ding gown; it’s about cel­e­brat­ing what mat­ters most to you.”

NO OR­DI­NARY LOVE From cus­tomised cakes (page 118) to the heart­felt nup­tials of Ch­eryl Wee and Roy Fong (page 52), this is­sue cel­e­brates the per­sonal touch
