My BIL's Wedding : Part II

...Continued from Part I


The Wedding Dinner/Solemnization was held at Raffles Hotel.
We reached there an hour before the solemnization commenced at Casuarina Room B, 7.30pm.
My hubs was supposed to be the witness for my brother but somehow it was changed to my SIL which he was only informed last min. He felt less tense (I supposed....) we walked around the hotel to take photos since it was still early.

The 2 men walking towards the wedding suite. We only brought Zac alone, Amos still too young.


Zac such a good boy that day. He walked around with us without putting up a fuss. I was worried that he may not co-operate since no "playround" for him to enjoy. He behaved much better than I expected. Muaccckkkks :):)

Inside the Solemnization Room
This is the solemnization room, nobody there yet !! Saw the lovely pink flowers there, so long didn't receive any flowers, can I keep it? Who say I don't like flowers? ;p


The guests haven't arrive yet, so I took photos first lah !! hehe ;p
Can you locate Zac at the background (wearing yellow/black top). He felt so much at ease & walking around mingle with the crowds. haha :D

Finally managed to grab hold of him to take photo with me. Look at his smile, so reluctant loh.... ;p

Solemnization Commenced

The couple entered the room. Lovely gown with the long trail. I think I would trip if I ought to wear that, clumsy me... hahaa :D
Exchanged of vows. Pretty young bride :):)
Such a meaningful day for the couple. They are offically husband & wife ...
At the Banquet
The photos at the reception.

The couple walking in... ...

3-tier wedding cake! Flowers & Champagne glasses. Also the lovely gift for the guests. So cute :)

Din managed to take much photos after that cos was busy serving Zac, who was starving. I myself was hungry too.... *slurp*..... hehe ;p
~~~~~~ The End~~~~~~~

42 Hugs for Amos & Zac:

Blur Ting said...

Wah, you look so pretty! Good idea to leave small kids at home. I remember my best friend's wedding... I spent the whole night running after YK who was 1 yr +. So tiring...

Amel's Realm said...

I agree with Blur. You look SO pretty, Jan! I LOVE the colour of your top and skirt and the choker looks GOOD on you! ;-D

I can't help laughing at Zac's forced smile ha ha ha...

And yeah, such a long train for the bride! WOW!!!

J@n!ce said...

Blur Ting : Yes, I thought so too that's why chose to leave Amos at home with the helper. I ever tried to bring Zac to my best friend's wedding too when he was 14 mths... Oh man, hubs n I had a hard time rotating between us to take care of him. It was the toughest dinner I ever had *sweat*

J@n!ce said...

Amel : Thanks. Zac seems to be smiling like that nowdays. I bought the choker for my ROM 6 yrs ago. wowow.... how time flies. I'm glad to be using it again. Got chance I show you my ROM photo :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Lili : For me, I dun really like to attend formal events like this. In actual fact, I dun really like to put on full make up. Its a hassle, I prefer causal wear, really :)

Glad that you think I look good for the occasion. I had been worrying what to wear for past days prior to it. I dun want to look too formal nor too casual. So I chose something in between.... hehe ;p

Mummy to QiQi said...

Janice, u look even more fantastic than anyone in the picture...a mother of two somemore...so envy!!

illusionaire said...

Dear Jan,

Hope you don't mind me for asking, but since I come from a completely different culture, tradition, demography, geographical location etc, I am quite lost.

Is the marriage without any religious ceremony? She kinda resembles a Christian bride, or is that what all brides wear over there? If it involves a religious ceremony, what religion is it?

Over here at my place, everybody's extremely religious. The christians follow a strict Church wedding, the Hindus follow a strict hindu-ritual wedding, the muslims follow a strict muslim tradition wedding, etc etc.

If the wedding does not involve religion, then its like a "court marriage" over here, where couples are married off by somebody in the Legal system authorized to do so. But then, they don't dress up like that for such kinda marriages.

Hence I was wondering what kind of marriage is your BIL's. Love the pics as usual.
:-)

J@n!ce said...

Chin Nee : haha... thank you thank you :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Sandman : Very good qns. Back here, we do follow according to different religion. Hindus, Malays & Chinese. For the latter, there are church weddings (for christains) & traditional chinese weddings for the other chinese. My brother followed the tradional chinese wedding although the bride I think is a christain. It depends very much on how complexity the couple wish to go. No fix rule actually. The wedding day was the first time I saw the bride, I don't really get to know her yet. LOL :)

Most of the modern couple prefers to wear those western gown you see in the picture, so it gives pple the impression they are christains I think.
