Germaine and Mitchell’s Glamorous Wedding at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore
Germaine and Mitchell celebrated their love in a beautiful church ceremony at Calvary Baptist Church, followed by a glamorous reception at Shangri-la Hotel.
Germaine, 25, Education Executive and Mitchell, 26, Business Consultant, celebrated their commitment and shared convictions on 27 June 2015, in a beautiful church wedding ceremony glowing with soft pastels, botannical florals, handmade details, and the love and joy of their family and friends.
How did the two of you meet?
Even though we pretty much grew up as little children in the same church, it wasn’t till secondary school days that we got to know each other through a common group of friends. What sealed the “deal” for both of us was that we shared a strong conviction about faith, life, and love.
What was the proposal like?
Germaine: Very genuine – It was just both of us and Mitchell prepared flowers, candles, photographs of our journey and a heartfelt letter.
What was the theme of your wedding, and how did you create it?
Rustic romance. We had the help of our décor planner, the lovely Jessica from Wedrock weddings who helped put things together so efficiently. There were a mixture of items – both handmade and purchased.
What was your wedding day like?
Our wedding day was truly meaningful because we were able to express our love for each other as well as our convictions about life and love in the midst of those closest to us – some of our guests specially flew in from around the world just to spend the day with us! It was also special because of the love and dedication put in from many of our friends who sacrificed many late nights to help us with the planning and decoration. Everything just came together beautifully, beyond what we could ever imagine and we are simply thankful for that.
Can you tell us the cost of your wedding?
It was between S$20K – S$30K for the church wedding.
Can you share with us the most memorable moment of your wedding?
Mitchell: Definitely when Germaine was walking down the aisle and when we declared our covenantal love for each other through our vows.
