Half­way through their life jour­ney, Chrys­tella Chai and Tris­tan Soh de­cided to give a new name to their re­la­tion­ship as they joined hands in a sa­cred bond of love

Apure love story about two souls find­ing each other and de­cid­ing to spend the rest of their lives to­gether: Chrys­tella and Tris­tan first met when they were only 15 years old. It was, in­deed, love at first sight for the two, who, since then, have never been sep­a­rated from each other, and who have spent more time with one another, than be­ing alone.

Both now 29, she a prac­tis­ing den­tist in Mel­bourne, Aus­tralia, and he a global busi­ness man­ager and in­vestor for three ven­ture cap­i­tal backed busi­nesses in the UK, they knew it was time to take their re­la­tion­ship into a new phase. They first met 14 years ago at the Sabah Golf & Coun­try Club through mu­tual friends. That mag­i­cal day brought the two closer to­gether, and made their union pos­si­ble. Af­ter years of jug­gling be­tween two com­pletely dif­fer­ent con­ti­nents (Europe and Ocea­nia), Chrys­tella and Tris­tan man­aged to strengthen their re­la­tion­ship even more.

Tris­tan pro­posed to Chrys­tella in Paris while she was vis­it­ing him in the UK. He made sure that the whole mo­ment was

ro­man­tic and un­for­get­table as he or­gan­ised a trip to the Palace of Ver­sailles, tak­ing care of ev­ery sin­gle de­tail. “For once he was very clued up on where to visit in Paris, as the norm was usu­ally me do­ing all the plan­ning,” said Chrys­tella while shar­ing this mag­i­cal mem­ory with us.

It was right at that mo­ment, in a quiet room at the Palace of Ver­sailles, that he went down on one knee, looked her straight in the eyes that went through her very soul, and these words were spo­ken: “Would you marry me?” The an­swer was in­stant, and a year and a half later the two were united in holy mat­ri­mony in front of par­ents, rel­a­tives and friends. The cer­e­mony was in­cred­i­bly unique, fea­tur­ing ev­ery sin­gle de­tail that ev­ery woman would wish to have in her wed­ding. First was the tea cer­e­mony,

fol­lowed by the sun­set solem­ni­sa­tion, and fi­nally the din­ner re­cep­tion. Dur­ing the tea cer­e­mony Tris­tan and his groomsmen were dressed in tra­di­tional Chi­nese at­tire as they picked up the bride and her brides­maids in an el­e­gant Porsche 964. Not to men­tion the in­cred­i­ble solem­ni­sa­tion cer­e­mony that was held at the Shangri-la’s Rasa Ria Re­sort in Kota Kinabalu, where the two young lovers ex­changed their vows.

Fi­nally on De­cem­ber 27, Tris­tan and Chrys­tella were of­fi­cially de­clared hus­band and wife in front of 450 guests, most of whom flew in for the wed­ding. The din­ner was an ab­so­lute dream, fea­tur­ing amaz­ing dec­o­ra­tions, ex­cel­lent food, and a joy­ful at­mos­phere. Later in the night, the grand ball­room was turned into a place where the guests danced and en­joyed them­selves to the delight of the newlyweds.
