Church Weddings

A Glamorous Garden Wedding: Kevin & Cherylina

Kevin is a technology enthusiast who loves starting his mornings with a good self-brewed cuppa, spending time in nature with God, and serving people at his church. Cheryl loves fashion, all things extravagant, and has excellence taste in décor. She was very sure that she’d be all caught up in the moment during the day and so the photos had to capture everything she would be a part of or even every minute that she might miss. “I’d like for our pictures to capture the raw, honest, and emotional moments” she told us. We loved that brief!

The couple met at their church almost seven years ago. Kevin says, “I knew from the moment I saw her that she was the one”. That was a Saturday evening apparently, and so the very next day he got to work. “When I saw her on Sunday, I had butterflies in my stomach and clumsily bumped into her ‘accidentally-on-purpose’ to get her attention. It worked! I added her on Facebook soon after and that’s when we started talking.”

“I liked the way he spoke to me and how gentlemanly he was on our first date. He opened the door for me and has been doing that ever since,” Cherylina recalls.

“We have gone through a lot together and even though the journey wasn’t blissful all the time, we’re happy with everything we’ve been through because that brought us to where we are today. We have always been there for each other even through family hiccups and sickness. We know how each other handles stressful moments and we’ve been supporting each other through it all.”

She also tells us that Kevin has been giving her flowers every single month since they first met. In return, she’s helped him level up in fashion over the years (according to him). A decent exchange if you ask us! Of course, the couple have shared many more meaningful memories over the years.

“We’ve got a lot of happy moments and I can’t wait for more to come!” Cheryl says.

Also, we have to say… as far as the new norm of weddings go, this has been the most glamorous one we’ve been to so far. How the couple managed to pull off this level of detail and planning for their big day (despite many changes going on around them) can only be a testament of their shared determination and faith.

Congratulations Kevin and Cherylina! Here’s to building Forever together!

The Wedding of Daniel & Prisila


Daniel and Prisila’s fate was brought together by a dental visit. She was a practising dentist and he was her patient. He needed to see a dentist urgently one day and got her number from a mutual friend. Making the appointment just the night before, he told us, “From her profile photo, I realised she was hot!”

He didn’t have another reason to see her after that appointment but she definitely lingered on in his mind after. “She was very professional yet ever so sweet and gentle. She put on a surgical mask and started treating me. All I could see were her eyes and I couldn’t help staring. I distinctly remember being mesmerised by them. I remember having drinks with some close friends that evening and telling them about how gorgeous she was,” Daniel recalls.

Chinese Peranakan Wedding: Mike & Sarah

Mike and Sarah’s wedding felt like a massive reunion of old friends. That usually happens when the bride and groom have known each other since childhood. Sarah’s earliest memory of Mike was in Sunday School. “He’d be the noisiest boy in the hall and be picked out instantly because of his vibrant personality. Till today – Mike has that extrovert personality!” she tells us. We could tell Mike certainly loves being around people and has a good sense of humour. As for Sarah, she expresses herself through writing, singing, and describes herself as an introvert (although Mike disagrees with that last one). Over many years of friendship which eventually blossomed into a relationship, both their best qualities rubbed off on each other – making them a perfect team. The story of how they first met and grew together is really the stuff of a romance novel.

Church wedding at The Collective: Frankie & Shiyou

Shiyou

In November 2016, I was with two of my girlfriends in KL, Denise Tan and Jane Seb. Like any other girly conversations, we ended up talking about the kind of husband I was looking for. It was a very casual conversation, full of jokes and laughters. I gave Jane my list. She glanced at it and said… “You’ve got to meet Frankie!! This list is Frankie!” Who is Frankie? I was not interested and I did not want to pursue it further.

Frankie

Jane told me about this Singaporean girl I had to meet. All I said was… “another finance person? I’m not interested.” I don’t want to be with another accounting person.

Shiyou

In January 2017, at the Kingdomcity Team Advance in KL, we met for the first time and were coerced into saying hi to each other. It was a very awkward situation as Andre Dique (our spiritual father/mentor/boss/friend) tried to get us to talk. There was nothing more than a awkward hi. I found out he was going to be the Kingdomcity KL Business Manager, so perhaps we would need to have some form of communication throughout the year. After all, I was taking care of Kingdomcity Singapore’s finances then.

In May 2017, I went to KL for a KPMG audit conference. Derwin decided to organise dinner with me, together with Sean Chang and Frankie. I said sure, cause I mean, what else was there to do at night? Frankie and I had our first real “hang out” then. I thought he was arrogant and he thought I was snobbish. I was thinking “how can Andre think that I would ever want to date a man like this?” So that was it. We never spoke again. Continue Reading

Wedding at St Joseph’s Church Sentul: Nicolas & Cassandra

We make each other laugh even during the hardest moments.

Nicolas and Cassandra’s motto is something that every married couple needs to adopt. Laughter is definitely a key ingredient to a happy relationship. On the wedding day, it is easy to laugh, enjoy every moment but the key to marriage longevity is to keep on laughing through the years. I have seen so many couples who allow the hardship and challenges of life rob them of their joy. Parenting is one major area where many couples focus so much on their children that they forget each other.

It is a good reminder to myself too to relax, loosen up and enjoy my 12 year marriage to Alex. Thank you, Nic and Cassandra for your laughter, friendship and wisdom.
