Dempsey Hill boasts a hip cluster of interesting wining and dining spaces that are extremely suitable for small, cosy weddings and ROMs. Hidden amongst the lush greenery of Dempsey is The Green Door, the perfect garden bar. With just a few simple touches, the place instantly becomes extremely cosy. We love how everyone just has such a fun and chill time, and look at those cocktails!

Andri: “William and Joelle’s love story is an interesting one. They met each other while on exchange at a university in Korea, after which they kept in touch and Joelle eventually followed William back to the Netherlands to work for a few years. Finally, they decided to settle down and get married in Singapore, tying the knot in a small, cosy bar with their close friends. It was a very simple affair with less than 30 guests, and William and Joelle spent more time catching up with their friends than anything. It was pretty amusing to see them tell their friends about how they met, and both their versions were quite different.”

A Surprise Proposal

Surprise proposal in Singapore. Multifolds Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

No pressure, all you other guys out there, but this is really sweet. Girls never expect their man to sing for them, write them love letters or cook them a candlelight dinner, and because it is so unexpected, it’s sure to bring forth tears.

Charlotte was blindfolded from Big Splash at East Coast Park all the way to the mystical tent lit up with fairy lights and filled with Polaroid photos of moments she and Desmond have shared, as well as a long handwritten love letter. When a man makes the extra effort like what Desmond did, our hearts melt and of course we will all shout, “Marry him!”

We will let Multifolds Photography photos tell the story.

Having a small wedding seems to be an unattainable dream in Asia, which is probably why more brides make it a point to plan engagement parties these days. It gives you the space to do some DIY stuff and be creative. Here is one such party, complete with all the DIY ideas from Pinterest here.

Jit Min: “I wanted something bright and fun while he wanted something cool. After much research, we decided to go with yellow and grey with a polka dot pattern. It was all good in the beginning, then halfway through we just got more excited and started adding more and more things. But it turned out great! Our families and friends helped with the décor arrangements.

“Everything was memorable for us – the exchanging of rings, not to mention our ‘first-kiss’. It was a good time with family and close friends, some of which we had not seen for a long time.”

Let’s get all sugar high in this pink-themed engagement party planned by Pineapple Studio. The pastel blue wall in Marmalade Café definitely makes it an even more joyful place for special occasions. We are definitely fans of short dresses; brides should so start wearing them for garden weddings.

Yumie: “I wanted something warm and cosy. Pink because it’s my favourite colour. I’m a very meticulous person, so I told my wedding planner the kind of design I was looking for, right down to the cake design I wanted. I’m so glad that Naomi understood and was able to translate it to reality.

“My favourite moment of the day was when the registrar announced us husband and wife. It was so emotional. This is the guy I want to spend the rest of my life with!

“I also absolutely loved my custom-made dress. I’m a tutu lover, so the dress had this fluffy bottom.”

Behind Closed Doors

Regine and Joey are clearly not your typical couple. When we first found out about the venue, we couldn’t wait to see what their engagement party would be like.

Fat Spoon Café evokes a warm feeling of nostalgia. Most people probably wouldn’t do much to its beautiful mix of raw and retro aesthetics for fear of ruining it, but the couple’s added touches were seamless.

Regine’s DIY bridal bouquet was a masterpiece in itself, created from hair accessories that she had started collecting from way before. The couple also had everyone beaming from ear to ear when they served custom-flavoured ice sticks that were labelled with each of their guest’s names.
