“We had two celebrations – the solemnisation and a chic gala in Singapore last August, and a glamorous Great Gatsby-esque do in Batam a week afterwards. It was very meaningful to have all our loved ones celebrate both occasions with us.
Holding a second reception in Batam for my Indonesian relatives, who couldn’t make it to the first one, didn’t make our wedding any less meaningful. In fact, knowing we were already husband and wife made it all the more romantic as it marked the start of a new beginning together, and we absolutely loved that. Our photographer captured many precious moments that I’m glad we hired the right guy for the job. The pictures were amazing, and allowed us to revisit memories from both occasions.”
