Indri and Kevin’s Elegant Blue Wedding at Caroline’s Mansion, The St. Regis Singapore
Indri and Kevin celebrated their matrimony at the Caroline’s Mansion in The St. Regis Singapore, which pays homage to the luxurious and elegant home of late 19th century prominent socialite Caroline Astor.
After a successful surprise proposal in Melbourne, Australia, Indri, 26, Digital Marketing Specialist, and Kevin, 30, Process Engineer, got married at Caroline’s Mansion, a beautiful event space in an adjacent annex at The St. Regis Singapore. The wedding was exactly how the couple had wanted it: simple and elegant. With their family and friends, who praised their choice of venue and food, the couple ended the night with loud cheers and blessings.
How did the proposal happen?
Indri: Kevin brought me to Rockpool Bar & Grill, a fine dining steak house in Melbourne, to celebrate my birthday. We invited two friends to join us on this occasion. As we ate our steaks, the restaurant staff brought out a chocolate cake. I had initially felt embarrassed because it was awfully quiet in the restaurant, and suddenly the whole restaurant was playing the Happy Birthday song. After the song was over, Kevin suddenly knelt down. I thought he was going to carry me and panicked. Instead, he pulled out a ring and he asked, “Will you marry me?” I cried from the shock and happiness. Of course I said “Yes, I will”. Everyone in the restaurant cheered and the staff squealed behind us.
Where was your wedding venue and why did you decide on it?
Indri: The wedding was held in Caroline’s Mansion at The St. Regis Singapore. We chose this place because it had its own private building and a beautiful staircase. There was also butler service for the guests. The package also included a personal handmaid who followed the bride around all day, attending to her every need, which was very (VERY VERY) helpful. The other reason was because Christine, the hotel’s event’s manager, was extremely helpful in every way from recommending themes, food, and rooms.
Did you have a wedding theme?
Indri: We just had a pastel blue theme with hints of gold. The flowers are the ones that help the theme stand out the most. It was simple yet elegant.
How did your wedding day go?
Indri: On the day of the wedding, both of us were extremely overwhelmed and tired. However, we were also very excited to finally see each other in our wedding outfits.
What did your family and friends have to say about your wedding day?
Indri: All our guests were impressed by the special wedding dress I had on. They also commented on the playlist and loved the food. The playlist was a compilation of original soundtracks from the games Kevin and I used to play together. They also loved the photo booth because they could bring the photos home.
What is one lesson you’ve learned from your wedding planning that you’d like to share with other couples?
Indri: Start planning as early as possible. One year is not enough, especially if you both have full time jobs and limited time. You should also make sure to ask both families to tell you in advance if there are any traditional customs to follow. Be prepared for last minute changes due to certain family requests.
