My Wedding Day, Part 2

This is part 2 of a 2-part series featuring our wedding day (Ken & Celes). If you haven’t, check out part 1 first: My Wedding Day, Part 1 ♥

Our Relationship Montage [Video]

As I was telling reader Calae, one of my goals of this series is to allow all of you to experience my wedding as if you were there with me on my big day. Really, if I could have my way, I would have loved to have all of you at our wedding, but it wasn’t possible due to logistical constraints!

I now invite you to watch a video montage of our relationship, put together by myself. :) This was the same video we played to our guests right before I walked in with my dad. It’s a montage of our lives: starting from when Ken and I were babies, to growing up (individually), to getting together, to his proposal, leading to our big day. It took me a week to make it and I’m really happy with how it turned out! For those of you with no background of our relationship, this video will give a nice quick overview.

Our Solemnization [Video]

Following the montage, my dad then walked me down the aisle, followed by the wedding solemnization — where Ken and I exchanged our vows and officially got married! (Video edited by myself)

Some Pictures from Our Solemnization…

His vows ♥

Exchanging wedding vows

“Before I met you, I could never understand why anyone would want to enter a lifelong commitment like marriage. After I met you, I realized that there is no one else I want to marry but you. […]”


“I promise to cover you with a blanket every night so that you will never be cold. I promise to take care of you no matter what happens, be it in times of sickness or in good health. […] I promise to be a better man every day so that we can create our best future together.”

Exchange wedding rings

“As your friend, your soulmate, your lover, and your life partner, I make this vow in everyone’s presence. Today, I marry you.”

Celes reciting her wedding vows

My vows ♥

Ken smiling

“When we met 10 years ago, we were mere acquaintances. I never thought in my wildest dreams that you would turn out to be my soulmate. […]”

Celes reciting wedding vows

“[…] I promise to always love you and cherish you: through thick and thin, the good and the bad times, sunshine and rain, and sickness and good health, for as long as I shall live.”

Exchange wedding rings

“Today, I give you my hand, my heart and my love. Two hearts as one, two souls as one. Today, I marry you.”

Kissing the forehead

Kiss ♥


We’re married!! :)

March in with flower petals

Re-entering as Mr and Mrs!! :)

Special Thank You’s ♥

To you reading this, thank you for reading this wedding series. :) I’m very glad to share my happiness with you and I’ll continue to share more of myself, in an unadulterated and unfiltered form, in the years ahead.

Special thanks to

  • BlackcurrantWorkz, for the amazing photos and videos taken during our wedding;
  • James, for being our secondary photographer and capturing many great shots (James is Ken’s friend and he also helped film our proposal!);
  • Cindy Cai, for being an amazing wedding manager from Shangri-La;
  • Leleng, for her support and love during the wedding preparation journey;
  • Fanny, for her amazing work on my hair and makeup;
  • Dr. Kwoh, for being our Justice of Peace; and
  • All our guests for being present on our big day!

Thank you to my overseas guests — Sulthana, Rashna, Fenix, Sarah, Rita, Alwin, and Alyssa — for coming all the way from London, Hong Kong, China, Thailand, and Malaysia, to Singapore just to attend our wedding. You guys are the best. :) Special shoutout to Tatt from Thailand — he had booked his ticket and hotel but couldn’t come at the last minute due to the 2014 Thai Coup d’état where there was a nationwide curfew. Tatt, thank you for sending us a wedding gift despite not being able to attend!

Thank you to my special PE readers for coming to our big day. :) Thank you to Sam for your BEAUTIFUL one-of-a-kind wedding collage book — it’s very special to us and quite possibly the best gift we could ever get as a couple! As I mentioned to you, it’s in our living room now along with our wedding photo guestbook as our special keepsake. :) Thank you to Cherene for your beautiful Thomas Sabo wing necklace — I’ve hung it at a special spot on my “PE-dedicated” noticeboard! :) Thank you to Roxanne, Wanxuan, Sam, Sharon, Alyssa, Hilda, Stanley, Eric, June, Adeline, Cherene, Irene, Jie Lin, Sultana, and Rashna for coming and your long-time support of my work.

Thank you everyone for your well wishes — I really appreciate it!

PS: Did you see the secret clip at the end of the wedding video? :) That one caught me by surprise — I only saw it for the first time last week when sorting through the raw video files, 9 months after the wedding!
