jaynevern10.jpgThe couple, who met through their mutual friend on Facebook five years ago, only started dating two years later.

Jayne Tham, and Vernon Anthonisz (also known as Vernon A from one half of 987FM’s Muttons On The Move), celebrated their marriage with a fun-filled celebration peppered with personal touches and intimate moments. She tells us:

“The wedding was a simple and meaningful one. The fact that we celebrated it with close friends and family made the night special for us. We were happy to receive our loved ones’ blessings and well-wishes.

We began the festivities with the gate-crashing ceremony in the morning, followed by the tea ceremony, then went to the Shangri-La Hotel, and made things official with the solemnisation ceremony. We also had our banquet dinner (for 200) there on the same evening.

There were several highlights during the wedding: our vow exchange, (which was such a heartfelt moment for the both of us), when my parents put the veil on for me before the gatecrashing ceremony (my mum got emotional and made the entire family cry!), and when Vernon’s colleagues at 98.7FM did a hilarious karaoke performance onstage along with our wedding video at the reception!

I had on three outfits (my wedding gown, qipao for the tea ceremony, and the evening gown, a piece inspired by Lady Gaga), all from Olive Suite, while Vernon looked sharp in a suit (for day) and a tux (for the banquet) from Dylan & Son. He even bought a pair of white leather Louboutins to go with his suit!

We were grateful to have Bobby and Wei Xiang capture our wedding so beautifully. In retrospect, the day went by so quickly, and each moment captured helps me to relive it all over again.

THE BRIDE’S TOP FIVE TIPS
1. . Hydrate a lot and take Vitamin C every day for 1 month before the wedding. It really helps to keep your skin hydrated and glowy, plus it keeps your immunity high so that you are unlikely to fall sick on your big day.
2. Be open to trying different types of gowns; you never know what you look good in.
3. Try not to sweat the small stuff! Don’t stress yourself out with the tiniest details; get your bridesmaids to help you out!
4. Stock up on your $2 notes! Nobody ever told me about that so on the day before the wedding, I didn’t have enough $2 notes for red packets!
5. Husband’s credit card. ‘Nuff said.
