Due to the nature of her job as a radio deejay, Lin Pei Fen placed more emphasis on the entertainment value of her wedding rather than décor. To keep the crowd enthralled, she got acoustic duo Jack and Rai to perform a repertoire of contemporary love songs at InterContinental Singapore attended by 350 friends and family."Even though it was not a small banquet, the mood was warm and cosy, and the emcees kept spirits high and provided many laughs," she adds.
A regular host of the Singapore Hit Awards, she and hubby Wei Xiang orchestrated a parody of the awards. In Mandarin, the phrase for "Newly-weds" is the same as "Newcomer" (新人), so they did a play on words and gave themselves a "Best Newly-wed Award" (最佳新人奖). They even shot a nomination video of themselves trying to out-do each other!
That evening, the bride changed three times European vintage-style gowns, such as her favourite baby-blue confection from WhiteLink pictured. Wei Xiang looked exceedingly dapper in a suit in an unlikely light grey with white checks, paired with a floral tie.
With three cats between the two of them, the couple wanted a representation of their feline friends at the wedding, so they created a wedding logo — a cat wearing a double happiness collar tag. Other DIY elements included Pei Fen's hand-made crystal hand bouquet and a decorative corner filled with photos of all things sweetly vintage.
