re­splen­dent Melissa & Jef­frey ro­mance

A dreamy solem­ni­sa­tion at Cald­well House was fol­lowed by a night of splen­dour at The St. Regis Sin­ga­pore for Melissa and Jef­frey, who wanted to cel­e­brate in timeless style.

We first met nine years ago over a dim sum sup­per in Gey­lang with a bunch of friends, one of whom was a mu­tual friend of ours.

Jef­frey pro­posed to me on a yacht in front of our fam­ily and friends. Fire­works from Sen­tosa went off right af­ter I said yes. It was a mag­i­cal mo­ment that was per­fectly timed by Jef­frey. We then set off for Lazarus Is­land to cel­e­brate our en­gage­ment.

For our wedding, we wanted it to be classy and also timeless, so we went with soft ro­man­tic colours for our solem­ni­sa­tion and lunch, and a luxe and el­e­gant theme for our ban­quet.

I wanted a mer­maid dress with a beau­ti­ful tail for my solem­ni­sa­tion, and I fell in love with the de­tails of my Berta wedding gown the mo­ment I saw it. It fit­ted me like a glove. For my ban­quet, I chose an elab­o­rate ball­gown by

Ju­lia Sposa from Jakarta.

“I was over­whelmed with emo­tion as my dad walked me

down the aisle.”

“It was a huge re­lief when noth­ing ma­jor went wrong. Al­ways start your wedding plan­ning early!”

I was re­ally pleased with our florist CC Lee De­signs, who decked out the stun­ning John Ja­cob Ball­room with a pro­fu­sion of pe­onies and hy­drangeas – both of which are my favourite flow­ers. It felt grand yet ro­man­tic.

For a per­sonal touch, we had a mono­gram cus­tomised for the wedding, and it was in­cor­po­rated into our sta­tionery and decor.

One of the high­lights of the evening was when our guests popped the con­fetti canons along the aisle while we did our march-in. That re­ally in­fused the at­mos­phere with some fes­tiv­ity and cheer.

“The mir­rored pan­els and high ceil­ing of the ball­room cre­ated a

mag­i­cal at­mos­phere.”

“We would love to do it all over

again, even though it was tir­ing. Time went by in a flash that day.”
