Shermaine and Kelvin’s Wild, Botanical Wedding at Chijmes Singapore
Shermaine and Kelvin showed their wedding guests a wild time with a lush flower bar and a coffee cart at their beautiful botanical wedding, held in Chijmes Singapore.
Shermaine, 29, and Kelvin, 32, really wanted their guests to have a good time at their wedding, and in lieu of traditional wedding elements, the couple kept their guests entertained with a coffee cart and a beautiful flower bar. With lush botanicals and bright neon signage, their wedding at Chijmes Singapore on 18 March 2018 was a beautiful and intimate celebration that involved a lot of fun and laughter
How did you create your wedding?
Shermaine: Having attended numerous weddings before our own, we knew the importance of engaging a wedding planner if we wanted to enjoy ourselves throughout the wedding journey. We are grateful to have had Ashley from The Wildest Dreams, who was there for us every step of the way.
Coming from a fashion background, I worked closely with Ashley to conceptualise and develop a wedding theme based on our personalities and stories. As guest experience was our top priority, we had to create a wedding which was relatable and entertaining.
What was your wedding day like?
Kelvin: We are not fans of traditional wedding practices and so we did away with many elements such as the gatecrashing, “yumsengs”, video or photo montages, cake cutting, table-to-table photo-taking, and second march-in.
In place, we worked with several vendors, whom Ashley fully liaised with, and had a coffee cart, photo wall and flower bar installed. All these meant we had all the time and energy in the world to mingle and catch up with our friends and families!
What was the most memorable moment of your wedding?
When one of our guests commented that it was the most unceremonious yet entertaining wedding she has ever attended, we knew we had our dream wedding.
