Weddings in Pictures: A Fairytale Come True

One of the five lucky winners in our Most Memorable Moments Contest, Kellyn and Darren, relives their fairytale proposal and beach solemnisation on SingaporeBrides.

Kellyn Chng and Darren Lin were first introduced by a common friend during a movie outing at The Cathay. They remained as friends for the next two to three years before they started noticing each other and exchanging messages and phone calls privately. One thing led to another and today, they’re happily married.

Every girl dreams of a fairytale proposal and you were one of the lucky ones who received one! Tell us more!

He proposed during our trip to Hong Kong approximately 2 years after we started dating. Although we were starting to plan for the future, I was completely taken aback by the surprise proposal since our trip was meant to be our graduation trip! He went down on one knee and popped the question in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle in Hong Kong’s Disneyland and I said “Yes”!

Walk us through your solemnisation.

Upon our first visit to Mana Mana Beach Club at East Coast Park, we fell head over heels with the venue and that it was the perfect spot for a beach solemnisation. Since it was by the beach, we decided on a garden and beach theme for the day. As a DIY bride, all the decorations, candy bar setup and cupcake stand were handmade by me. Even the planning for our solemnisation was done by me.

The actual day turned out perfect, except for the heavy downpour in the afternoon and the regrettable but unavoidable decision to move the initially outdoor solemnisation indoor. Dr Phua Tan Tee was our solemniser for the day, and he was a perfect choice. He calmed us down and had me at the brink of tears when he reminded us of our filial piety and to return home every once in a while to visit our parents.

Did your family and friends enjoy your ROM celebration?

Although they had a really wet experience due to the heavy downpour, they were really taken aback by the beauty of our venue. Most of them even commented that they didn’t know a place that beautiful existed in Singapore! They were also very impressed that I did a good job with the candy bar setup and cupcake stand.
