A grand fairy tale ballroom wedding at The St. Regis Singapore

A dreamy solemnisation at Caldwell House was followed by a night of splendour at The St. Regis Singapore for Melissa Yong and Jeffrey Neo, who wanted to celebrate in timeless style.

How did you meet?

We first met nine years ago over a dim sum supper in Geylang with a bunch of friends, one of whom was a mutual friend of ours.

What was your proposal like? 

Jeffrey proposed to me on a yacht in front of our family and friends. Fireworks from Sentosa went off right after I said yes.

It was a magical moment that was perfectly timed by Jeffrey. We then set off for Lazarus Island to celebrate our engagement.

Share with us your wedding theme and celebration! 

For our wedding, we wanted it to be classy and also timeless, so we went with soft romantic colours for our solemnisation and lunch, and a luxe and elegant theme for our banquet. 

I was really pleased with our florist CC Lee Designs, who decked out the stunning John Jacob Ballroom with a profusion of peonies and hydrangeas – both of which are my favourite flowers.

It felt grand yet romantic.

“I was overwhelmed with emotion as my dad walked me down the aisle.”

“The mirrored panels and high ceiling of the ballroom created a magical atmosphere.”
