A Zesty Modern Romance Styled Shoot at The Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar

This fun and bright set-up is perfect for a Summertime wedding at The Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar.

Tucked away discreetly in the quiet of Dempsey Hill lies The Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar, a relaxed but refined restaurant-and-bar by acclaimed Michelin chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Known for its Instagrammable interiors, the restaurant’s monochromatic colour palette offered the perfect canvas for stylist Years & Co. to play with for our styled shoot. Together with fellow creatives Bloomen, Kiss My Pans, Luzerne Global, Lovera Collections, Pine on Paper and Natalie Wong Photography, they created a beauty that promises to inspire.

I wanted bright and vibrant colours to complement the restaurant’s black and white colour scheme, and Jessica from Years & Co. cooked up a fun and zesty Summer theme featuring lively shades of orange and yellow. Daryl from Bloomen brought Jessica’s cheerful vision to life with adorable Summer blooms like Craspedia and Chamomile in his elegant floral installations.

Jessica incorporated contemporary luxe elements to complement the venue’s modern minimalist look with opulent, gold dinnerware from Luzerne Global and gold cutlery from Lovera Collections. She also included candles, circular candle holders and sleek lanterns for a touch of romance and whimsy.

Drawing inspiration from Jessica’s vision of a fun and lively modern Summer wedding, Pine on Paper crafted a set of wedding stationery with elegant and whimsical florals to complement the cheery blooms from Bloomen.

Instead of the usual dessert table, we worked with Jeanne from Kiss My Pans to incorporate a cheese grazing table. Grazing tables are a rising trend in weddings overseas as it is both beautiful to look at and encourages interactions between guests at the same time. Fueled by her love of cooking and hosting, Jeanne started transforming tables into gastronomical delights of appetising cheese boards filled with delicious, fresh and wholesome cheese, charcuterie, fruit, veggies, homemade dips, fresh bread and gourmet crackers that are perfect for a group to savour and mingle freely and casually.

Filled with yummy food and fruits in vivid shades of yellow, orange, green and white, Jeanne’s cheese grazing table was a perfect addition to our fun and zesty Summer wedding setup! And what’s a wedding without some sweets? So, we incorporated a variety of cakes by The Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar into Jeanne’s masterpiece.


We would like to thank all creatives who collaborated with us on this styled shoot at The Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar! It was a dream come true to work with you all and we had lots of fun – we hope you did too! Last but not least, thank you The Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar for inviting and providing us with such an Instagrammable space to work with!

The Dempsey Cookhouse and Bar is located at 17D Dempsey Rd, Singapore (249676).
