Sorry for not updating the entire weekend but have been living in a “wedding bubble” since Friday.

TomTamara got married on Saturday and it has been a hectic weekend starting off with me meeting some friends for drinks on Thursday evening. Not the cleverest of ideas as we had the hen party for Princess T on the Friday but thankfully it was not until the afternoon so managed to get myself atleast a couple of hours sleep.

Friday was a mix of laughter, champagne, willy-straws, more champagne, pampering, happy tears, even more champagne and some nibbles. And this was just in the afternoon. In the evening the hens (without Princess T as she had a family dinner) went out for dinner at Graze, joined by one poor guy…but he held himself pretty good in the company of very chatty women. Impressive. After dinner we continued down to CQ and China One for more partying. Some of us were still going at 5 am. Another not so clever decision.

Saturday was wedding day. Me and Di, one of the other bridesmaids, went to the location in early afternoon to check that all was in order. Being Singapore of course it wasn’t. And it the middle of the set-up someone decided to open up the heavens and it started pouring down. When you have an outdoor location that is not exactly what you want. Thankfully it stopped in time for when the guests and the bridal couple arrived so all was well and good in the end.

The bride looked absolutely gorgeous. The groom very handsome. And the ceremony, it was just heartwrenching. Not a dry eye in the house. As it should be at weddings. As I, apart from being one of the bridesmaids, also was the official photographer that was a tough moment…trying to focus and take good pictures with tears in your eyes is not the easiest thing. They did turn out good though.  The dinner, the dancing and the afterparty was great but after having been out two nights in a row I gave up at 1 am. At that point my brain had done a complete shut-down and I could no longer feel my feet so the only thing I wanted was my bed, and a good nights sleep. Which I did get. Bliss.

On Sunday I met up with Ellen for brunch at Pump Room. The weather was perfect for sitting outside and it was just what I needed to get my energy back. Brunch was followed by an 1.5hrs balinese massage. Talking about feeling like you’ve been to heaven and back afterwards.

It has truly been a weekend filled with love, happiness and meeting of new wonderful people and I feel so blessed to have friends like T&T in my life – and it was such an honor to be there, sharing their special day!

Weddings alike

Congratulations to the gay community in Sweden who after having fought long and hard finally are allowed to get married in the church. The decision was finalized yesterday and will be in place from November 1.

I think this is great news and know that a lot of my gay friends are thrilled about this.

And I couldn’t be happier for them.
