Derrick Chan and Cyn Chua's love story goes back 10 years, where they met the first time in Singapore Polytechnic. Eight years later at a surprise trip to Bulgari Hotels & Resorts Bali, Derrick proposed over a romantic dinner on a cliff, overlooking the beautiful Indian Ocean.
Their wedding day started off with the traditional Chinese gatecrashing, followed by a tea ceremony – but not before stopping for a fun and nostalgic photo session at their alma mater.
The couple held their banquet reception at the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel Singapore. Its brown and gold interiors with high ceilings provided the perfect backdrop for a Great Gatsby theme which hosted 250 guests.
Together with the amazing styling team from MerryLove Weddings, they added romantic Art Deco accents to the ballroom such as an ornate frame for the guestbook, fairy lights, soft tulle, feathered aisle stands and black table linen with gold tableware. Cyn even went online to learn how to use gold foil to turn plain cards into classy place cards for the table setting.
"The day was surreal. Everything turned out exactly how we wanted it to be. It was money well spent on our vendors. We were glad that we didn't compromise on quality and things we wanted for our wedding."
