Singapore - Highlights (August 6 - 10)

The final destination - Singapore, for our dear friends Beverly and Chris' wedding.

Arriving in Singapore was quite a shock to the system. It was so hot and humid, it was like swimming through the air to try and get anywhere. In light of the weather, I could see why the national past times are eating and shopping.

We arrived in the evening, had a relaxing night, then spent the next day with the bridal couple for their hens and bucks days.

At the joint brunch in the morning.

Brunch was followed by manicure and pedicures, and then high tea! What a gorgeous day.

The girls - all primped and polished.

The next day, Saturday the 8th, was the big wedding day. I was honored to be asked to be one of Beverly's "sisters" for the day, which meant we arrived at Bev's aunt's house early in the morning to participate in the claiming of the bride ritual, as well as getting to observe the tea ceremony.

The "sisters" plus bride and bridesmaid.

The next part of the day was the church ceremony - Bev looked stunning in her white gown.

Finally married! Massive congrats guys!

The reception was fabulous fun and a great way to end the day. The evening was punctuated with touching slideshows, particularly one from Bev's parents, which made several of us shed a few tears.

Dressed in our finery.

Bev's last dress change - stunning in red.

With the gorgeous couple. Love you both - thank you for including us in your beautiful day.
