John and Sher continued their adventure on the little red dot as they celebrated their nuptials with a reception at Food for Thought at the National Museum of Singapore (complete with an 'Up' inspired wedding piñata!). The reception echoed the spirit of adventure at the couple's wedding in Phuket, with handcrafted decorations lovingly created and styled by the girls of In Merry Motion and snapped by Yi Ting.
A word from the bride…
“On one of our first dates in Singapore, we went to Food For Thought in Bugis (this was the original branch opposite the National Library). To our great dismay, the cafe was closed as it was almost midnight. We returned the next day on our Vespa and were surprised to find that the waiter actually remembered us from the night before and offered us a drink on the house! We fell in love with the place immediately and loved the concept of having great food that supported a great cause. Since then, we couldn't think of a better place to celebrate our Singapore reception and chose the new branch at the National Museum of Singapore.
Chen Weiyan and Joyce Li from In Merry Motion crafted a lovely space for us where we could walk down memory lane: from when we first met, dated in Malaysia and Singapore riding our Vespa to our engagement and marriage. The whole setup was based on the idea that ‘Adventure is out there!’, inviting our guests to celebrate our old and newfound adventures together. We called it ‘Our Grand Finale’ - I almost cried because I was so sad there wouldn't be any more wedding celebrations!
We rode in on Jamie, our Vespa and started the night with a piñata containing packets of little pom poms of the infamous 'Ellie Badge' from the animated movie, Up. As previously mentioned, Up was the movie we saw on our first date, and it ended up holding a lot of significance in our lives.” ~ Sher
Congratulations on your marriage once again, John and Sher, and thank you for sharing your lovely celebration with us!
