ANTHEA & VIN­CENT

Herworld Brides (Singapore) - - Wedding Albums -

Last year’s Her­World Brides Cover Brides con­test win­ner, Anthea Zhou, 29, mar­ried her beau, Vin­cent Lim, 30, in a se­cret-gar­den­themed wed­ding.

IN JEJU Vin­cent popped the ques­tion with a hand­writ­ten let­ter at our cute and cosy Airbnb. It was re­ally sweet and funny at the same time! Later on, he told me that his ini­tial plan had been to pro­pose in a canola field, but all those bright yel­low flow­ers were wilted when we were there (laughs).

JOY AND TEARS We had a se­cret-gar­den theme for our wed­ding lunch. It was a light-hearted af­fair with 200 guests who had a good time laugh­ing over our comedic prewed­ding video. But there were also plenty of tears when our ap­pre­ci­a­tion video for our par­ents came on. It was a roller­coaster ride of emo­tions. See­ing their re­ac­tions was well worth our ef­forts and those of Alan­mitchi Cine­matog­ra­phy.

A DAY TO RE­MEM­BER See­ing Vin­cent for the first time that day had me ex­cited, ner­vous, and sur­pris­ingly shy – which is so un­like me! The hap­pi­ness I felt through­out was so sur­real. Al­though we did run a lit­tle be­hind sched­ule, it was easily re­solved. We had an awe­some team of grooms­men and brides­maids who ran our wed­ding well, and we can’t thank them enough.

5 Shots from their pre-wed­ding shoot made up part of the re­cep­tion decor. 6 Guests were asked to share their ad­vice on mar­riage in a hand­made book­let. 7 Lush and whim­si­cal flo­ral cen­tre­pieces added soft ro­man­ti­cism to the ban­quet set­ting. 8 The re­cep­tion area was jazzed up with a dreamy fairylit back­drop for photo taking. 9 Pour­ing the cham­pagne. OP­PO­SITE “I fell in love with my wed­ding gown be­cause of its back-lace de­tails and how it com­ple­mented my body shape.” 9
