    Hi,

    I just had my solemnisation on 12 Dec 2009 at 1pm.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Phua for his patience and his services. I would say he is the best solemniser. I receive compliments for his lively speech and the whole process was done perfectly =)

    He has a fatherly look and he is very punctual and not to worry he will definitely be there for your big day once u engage him. =)

    He makes my whole wedding ceremony full of joy and laughter. I will highly recommend you people to engage his services for a memorable day.

    I will upload pictures soon once available =)

    I have invited Dr. Phua as my solemnizer as well... my rom will be in feb 2010..

    Is it the norm practice that Dr. Phua will not meet us and just sent the consent form to us by mail?

    Hi Mayshalws,

    It depends whether he has any other things to attend, if not he will stay.

    For my case, he didn't stay for long once he finish my solemnization as he is rushing for another solemnization.

    If Dr Phua can make it he sure will come not to worry he will fly aeroplane unlike others mention in the forum...

    On our wedding day, he actually had another appt at 2pm at Tampines but he say he will do it for me coz he knows its a special occasion for the 2 of us and the best was that our solemnization was at 1pm so he only have half an hour to settle our stuffs.

    Although we tried to start at 1pm, we were a bit late due to parents late arrival coz need some fetching to and fro and limited car usage. We started at abt 1.05 to 1.10pm and he actually calm the whole ppl and manage to finish the whole ceremony without rushing us by 1.30pm. This makes me feel really comfortable and feels that he really is the best JP of all.

    He really is someone you can trust and he is a very responsibility person. I am really glad to have him as my JP. =)

    Hi All, I am so glad that I had Dr Phua as my solemniser on 29 November. Dr Phua reached my solemnisation venue early and was very very patient with us. I would like to apologise to Dr Phua for all the waiting as my make up artist came late and as a result, I was at least half an hour late for my solemnisation. He was so understanding....I couldn't ask for more....the ceremony went on smoothly and touched our hearts...Once again, thank you so much, Dr Phua!

    Hi Jocelyn!
    My solemnisation was held on 12 dec 2009 at 12pm and Dr Phua is also my solemniser! OMG, I couldn't believe that the world is so small. haha. I totally agreed with you that he was the best solemniser I had ever seen. Not only does he makes us feel comfortable, our guest were relaxed as well. He was able to communicate in dialect which makes it even more heart warming and not so formal and tense. I am eternally grateful to have Dr Phua to be our solemniser as solemnisation can only be done once. [​IMG]

    Hi missmeow

    Dr Phua do not have a mobile number. Under the contacts found in MOM registered solemniser, he has the following:
    Dr Phua Tan Tee
    62130705 (Office)
    67531028 (Home)

    Remember to try his home number cos sometimes he's at home and I got through to him via his home number too. haha... Hope this information is useful to those who wants to engage Dr Phua!

    PS: To those who are afraid of calling, please don't. Dr Phua is a very friendly person and usually, he will end up chatting and giving you advises over the phone. [​IMG]

    Hi All,

    I juz had my solemnisation on 28 Dec 09 and Dr. Phua as my solemniser. He's a wonderful JP. He's make the whole event so comfortable and enjoyful. He didn't rush out the whole thing and takes about 30mins to finish (including the photo taking session) But too bad he's not joining us for dinner. Thumbs up for Dr. Phua [​IMG]
     
  15. adelzline

    adelzline New Member

    Yup mayshalws, mine is also about 30 minutes and the atmosphere is good. Eventhough he has another appointment after mine, he does not show his anxiety to leave and was very effective... i think he is very experience and he likes solemnising couples.
     
  16. mayshalws

    mayshalws New Member

    the best part is he even co-operate with the photograher. ask the photogrpher what, where and how to get a best shot. and something unique abt Dr. Phua is he will ask the groom to say 'may i kiss u' to the bride instead of 'u may kiss the bride'
     
  17. adelzline

    adelzline New Member

    wah... he forgot to ask my hubby to say that to me before kissing me..
     
  18. mayshalws

    mayshalws New Member

    hehe..before the event start..i hint to Dr. Phua that i want a kiss from a groom.. :D

    Dr Phua used English, Chinese and Hokkien for my friend's wedding. I feel that he's better in Chinese than English. He's very entertaining and take effort in explaining the whole solemnization process to everyone. It took about 30mins. Think he's very busy and hence was a bit late. Overall, I think he's good from the viewpoint as a guest to the event.

    Which group is he under?

    Thanks.

    linusz New Member

    Okie, my gf found it. He is under single constituency search.
    ROM doesnt have a centralised search system.
    Some JPs are not in the JP pdf listing.

  36. piggeekgirl

    piggeekgirl New Member

    pink_lady00: Hey! You just need to ask him that you're inviting him on which date and what time and whether he is free during that time. That's what we asked and he replied saying he is free and asked for more details. That's bout it. [​IMG]

    Now we just need to find a parking space for him! Forgot to take note that he might be driving so need to find out where he can park his car. :X

    Hi Kat,

    Thanks for ur advice. So should i call or drop him an email?
     
  38. piggeekgirl

    piggeekgirl New Member

    Hi pink_lady00,

    We emailed him that time. So it's up to your preference. [​IMG] Do note that usually Dr. Phua seems to only reply to email at night since we only got his reply around midnight or so.

    Hope that helps! ;)

    Hi Zac,

    hi all.. just ROMed last sat... I had Dr Phua as my solemniser... all I can say is... he is really great....

    he reached 1 hr earlier.. and quite patient.. all my family members and guests were late.. instead of rushing me, Dr Phua still comfort me telling that everything will be fine...

    lucky my solemnisation starts on time..

    to some, Dr Phua can be quite long-winded.. but hey.. can feel that its from his bottom of his heart... my family members and frens had good comments about him..

    yes.. he managed to calm both of us down with his jokes.. =)
