Another couple from Singapore nailed it when they chose a vintage travel theme for their wedding ceremony. Despite the fact that it was in a traditional church, they managed to pull off the theme very well. Their invitations and wedding favours were DIY, and we have to applaud Frances for being one of the rare brides to wear a short wedding dress. Of course, we’ve also got to thank John Lim for sharing these photos with us.

Frances: “We wanted our wedding to be different and something that represented us. The concept behind the wedding is vintage, something that we’ve always loved and that is a part of our life. Even the church is apparently the oldest Teochew church in Singapore.

“We used a VW Kombi as our bridal car and our own 1976 Vespa Sprint Veloce as part of the decorations. We welcomed our guests with things like maps, suitcases, etc. around the reception table, to represent travelling, which we love. To make our lunch area cosier, we had long tables instead of the usual round ones and Tiffany chairs.

“My most memorable moment was seeing the joy in my family and friends, as they shared my big day with me.”

Tips from the bride: “Think of something that represents you or something that you love the most, and work around it. Always plan ahead and give yourself time.”
