It’s a scorching afternoon in Singapore and we’re out at the Fort Canning Hotel to celebrate SL & Sam’s Registration of Marriage, when I turned to Ben and proclaimed that I wouldn’t want to entertain a ballroom full of guest after our wedding ceremony. Being innately introverted, I’ve always chosen to shun the crowds, always choosing to stay on the sidelines when forced to attend events.
The Ritz Carlton Millenia, where we’re staying for our wedding, was an obvious choice for a dinner location. It’s reputed to have one of Singapore’s best dinner buffet, with the wide variety of seafood and superb service. Situated in the lobby, the Colony had the perfect space for our intimate dinner. Sliding wall to ceiling mirrored doors and partitions carefully designed by the award-winning New York based Tony Chi, provide the comfort and ambiance we had desired.
Sitting a group of 20 was no easy feat, couple that with varying groups of people from our lives could have proven disastrous, but it was a success. The conversations on the table flowed endlessly, laughter, giggles floated through the air.
Towards the end of the night, friends were seen cozying up with one another with cakes in hand and smiles on faces. The party promptly proceeded to our wedding suite where we showed off the night view of the Marina Bay area and endless photographs to seal those fleeting moments.
