FION & XIU LONG

Herworld Brides (Singapore) - - Wedding Albums -

Fion Ye, 26, an­a­lyst, and Tay Xiu Long, 29, third gen­er­a­tion owner of dried food whole­saler Buan Seng Boon Kee, held a ball­room cel­e­bra­tion filled with unique events.

UN­SPO­KEN AGREE­MENT We met dur­ing at our uni­ver­sity’s ori­en­ta­tion camp, and I asked Fion out af­ter we got closer. Dur­ing one of our dates at MacRitchie Reser­voir, I held her hand so she wouldn’t fall – and I con­tin­ued to hold it even when the trail flat­tened out. She didn’t let go, so I took it as a sealed deal! A SPOILT SUR­PRISE We got to­gether at MacRitchie Reser­voir, so I de­cided to pro­pose there. I wanted to sur­prise Fion, so I told her that we were meet­ing our friends there for an­other friend’s pro­posal. Un­for­tu­nately, she found out about my plan! Thank­fully, the pro­posal video I pre­pared touched her enough to make up for the spoilt sur­prise.

TASTE OF TRA­DI­TION To keep our guests en­ter­tained dur­ing the cock­tail re­cep­tion, we had a photo booth and a tra­di­tional ice-cream cart that served old-fash­ioned at­tap chee ice cream. It was a de­light to see so many of our guests en­joy­ing this touch of nos­tal­gia.

VIDEO TRIB­UTE Both Fion and I aren’t the most elo­quent, so in­stead of giv­ing a speech, we played a video com­pi­la­tion of pic­tures and mem­o­ries from over the years that was ac­com­pa­nied by our recorded nar­ra­tion. It was our way of ex­press­ing our grat­i­tude to our fam­ily and close friends.

IN­TER­VIEW TIME There was also an in­ter­view seg­ment where our wed­ding em­cees went around ask­ing our guests for their wed­ding ad­vice. Many funny mo­ments en­sued. The re­sponses were hi­lar­i­ous, though some were not en­tirely ap­pro­pri­ate.

1 The cou­ple were both in Rico-A-Mona. 2&4 “Dur­ing our solem­ni­sa­tion, our Jus­tice of the Peace asked us to share our prom­ises to each other. It was at that mo­ment, when we were look­ing at each other, stum­bling over our in­co­her­ent but heart­felt words, that we knew we made the right de­ci­sion to marry each other.” 3 Im­ages from their prewed­ding shoot formed part of the re­cep­tion decor.
