A director of Dreams Establishment, Gloria Goh met Edward Cheong in 2010 but they lost touch after he moved to Sydney. A reunion two years later led to a long-distance relationship for the pair. Fast-forward to 2014. On a visit to Hunter Valley in November, Edward took the youngest daughter of noted businessman Tommie Goh, chairman of 2G Capital, to a stunning vantage point in a vineyard where he got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife.
Put A Ring On It
Navy & Gold
For their wedding banquet at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore in November 2016, the couple went for a Great Gatsby theme. To evoke the splendour of the 1920s, a navy and gold colour palette was used in the ballroom decor and was seen in everything from the stage backdrop to the table runners.
Light As A Feather
Art Deco Touches
The wedding cake was a five-tiered confection by Little House of Dreams, one of the business arms of Dreams Establishment. It bore the colour contrasts and geometric and angular shapes unique to 1920s art deco designs. Draped with strings of lustrous “gold pearls” for that much more extravagance, it was crowned with a monogram of the couple’s name.
The New Guest Book
Hey, Soul Sister
Getting into character for their own Great Gatsby story, Gloria wore a gold fully-sequinned evening gown from Renee L Collections matched with a feather headpiece, while Edward was all suave in a black bespoke tuxedo by Kevin Seah and slicked-back hair.
That’s The Spirit!
Just as American author F Scott Fitzgerald’s novel would be incomplete without liquor-fuelled backdrops, this grand party indulged guests in a bespoke cocktail bar on top of red and white wines and champagne. “We worked on the bespoke cocktail bar together with a vendor, Elite Bar Solutions, to design the lighted bar counter, taste and select our drink options, and even came up with names for the personalised bar menu,” shares Gloria.
