We are truly impressed by how MerryLove Weddings transformed this small space into a glamorous set, while keeping within the bride’s budget! Thanks, Samuel Goh, for capturing all this goodness.

June: “The fact that we both came from the same school meant that Ray and I have the same group of friends. Hence, our wedding was like a mini school party, minus the teachers! Our wedding day was even more meaningful because it was also our 4th anniversary of being together, and my birthday. We were truly blessed to have been able to celebrate such a special day with the people who matter most to us.

“Right from the start, I’ve always known that I wanted an intimate, cosy wedding rather than a traditional Chinese wedding. Both of us grew up in huge extended families that we are very close to, and it wasn’t easy to come to this decision. We were extremely blessed that both sets of our parents agreed to have a small, intimate wedding, and let us plan our wedding the way we both wanted it to be.

“I didn’t have any idea how my wedding decorations would look like till the day itself, an hour before the wedding started. I just put my total trust in ShuYing, and was pleasantly surprised by her and her talented team. Everything was perfect, exceeding my expectations.

“We brought in miniature bottles of Sutter Home wines from the States, in different grape varietals. Wine wedding favours always add elegance to any wedding. My guests loved the adorable, colourful bottles of wine; they couldn’t resist taking more home!”

“Our wedding was ‘The Great Gatsby’ inspired. I love the glitz and sparkle of classy old Hollywood glamour. Together with our wedding stylist, ShuYing of MerryLove Weddings, we used the character ‘Jay Gatsby’ as inspiration for my solemnisation and reception, with the main colours of white, black and gold. These were the iconic colours of ‘The Great Gatsby’, and so, even with budget constraints, we could still evoke a strong Gatsby atmosphere with that colour scheme.

“For the indoor banquet, we used the female lead ‘Daisy’ as inspiration for the banquet centrepieces to create a softer feel, with the main colours of pale pink, silver and ivory. Silverware and glassware were incorporated to create a vintage, luxurious dining space.

Tips from the bride: “Remember why you are getting married. No matter how well intentioned, family and friends will undoubtedly lend advice, ideas or even objections to your decisions. Arguments between the couple are inevitable. But in the end, this is a celebration of your love and future together, and so every choice should be yours alone. Keep your focus on what matters most, forget what you think you should or shouldn’t do, and go with your heart.

“Have faith in your vendors and photographer, and trust that they will do their job well! The rest will fall into place. A friend once told me ”The biggest thing is that when your wedding day finally arrives, it literally flies by in the blink of an eye”. How true. Enjoy the whole planning process, do not get too caught up with ‘perfection’. Make sure to take little moments throughout the wedding day to savour everything—the emotion, the sights, the smells, the sounds. Because when its all over, you’ll miss it and want to do it all over again!”
