THE COUPLE

James Chen & Diane Tay

THE LOCALE

Singapore Flyer and Wild Rocket restaurant

THE INSPIRATION

The couple wanted a departure from the run-of-the-mill weddings that they had attended or were about to attend. Hence, the notion of being the first couple to tie the knot at the Singapore Flyer appealed to them. Standing at 165m above ground, this giant observation wheel is currently the world’s largest and touted to be one of Asia’s biggest tourist attractions.

THE BRIDE WORE

An off-shoulder white gown that was tailor made to perfection for the solemnisation ceremony. At the dinner reception, she wore an elegant red and black satin dress with an elaborate hair accessory.

THE GROOM WORE

A black tuxedo with matching bow tie at the Singapore Flyer. He wore a long-sleeved red shirt underneath his jacket on the day of the dinner to complement the bride’s dress.

THE EVENT

On Valentine’s Day of 2008, James and Diane exchanged their matrimonial vows in the air, with the evening skyline of the city providing the most picturesque and romantic backdrop. Their special day was made all the more memorable with media frenzy from the local and Hong Kong press, who had flown in to cover the opening of the Flyer.

The couple’s wedding dinner was held the following day at the enclaves of Mt Emily, in a restaurant called Wild Rocket. On both days after their solemnisation and reception, the couple retreated to their luxurious loft at the Fullerton Hotel.
