Kelvin and Fiqah's Cross-Cultural Singapore Wedding

Happy Valentine’s Day, Wedding Scoopers! We love it when love builds bridges and brings different cultures together, and on this special day we celebrate the power of love with a beautiful and inspiring wedding – Kelvin, a Chinese groom, wed Fiqah, his Malay bride, in a cross-cultural Singapore wedding filmed by Sidetrack Productions. The couple wore both traditional Chinese and Malay outfits during their celebration, which included a Chinese tea ceremony and nikah (solemnisation ceremony).

"It wasn’t all smooth sailing but every time we met bumpy roads, we always managed to stay strong. Despite the diversity and hurdles over the years, we still found our way back to each other every time." ~ Kelvin and Fiqah

Tell us about how you both got together and how did you know he/she was "THE ONE"?
"We met 8 years ago when we were both tertiary students working for a 3-day part time events job. Our friendship continued after that and the rest is history. It wasn’t love at first sight, nor was there an exact magical moment when we realised we were meant to be." ~ Kelvin and Fiqah

"Kelvin has always shown that he was sincere in the relationship. He met my parents on our very first date when we were teenagers and attended religious classes to learn more about my religion throughout the years." ~ Fiqah

"Fiqah has always stuck by me no matter the circumstances. She is filial to her parents and respectful to elders. Our interracial relationship was never easy to start off with, which is why it took us 8 years to finally tie the knot." ~ Kelvin

Why do you think your video has received such a strong response?
"We were on our honeymoon when we received news from families and friends on the response to our video. It was puzzling (laughs). Our guess is that the public liked how we had integrated both our cultures into one wedding and had both of our families and friends witness and partake in the occasion. Credit goes to Sidetrack Productions for producing such good highlights that captured both our family and friends' joy and blessings for us.

It also seems like our wedding is a motivation or inspiration for other interracial couples to have faith in their relationship. We had a few people send us personal messages asking how we cope with and handle the problems or issues that arise in an interracial relationship similar to ours." ~ Kelvin and Fiqah

 

Congratulations on your marriage, Kelvin and Fiqah! May it be every bit as beautiful as your wedding!
