I don’t know why the boys continually cannot walk the centre of the aisle! From rehearsal to the final day! Haha…boys. Maybe they felt lonely and wanted of a partner?
Happy to see my girls got it right.
We could have gotten married in any Catholic church, but this was picked for its understated beauty (simple and small), history and special meaning to me.
My grandpa passed away a few years ago, and he is very missed by the whole family. His funeral and the 5 day wake was held in this church, and while that sounds really morbid, it’s actually not. We see the church as “his” church and I feel his spirit around.
Some people expressed surprise that we would pick this particular church to get married in: it’s one of the smallest churches, it’s not in the east, where both our families (including us!) stay, and, and some who perhaps don’t have “friends from other races” have said, “but it’s the Indian church”.
Erm. So?? Yes, it’s just off Sungei Road, is relatively near Little India and offers masses in Tamil (not all Catholic churches have Tamil masses), which could be reasons why more Indian friends attend this church, but we really didn’t see the point in making such a statement. I, for one, find it to hinge on a slight racism, which doesn’t generally sit well with me…
Anyway, I digress. So we decided to hold our church ceremony here, which to both of us, is the most important part of the entire wedding. I really appreciate how friends who had packed schedules on the day and couldn’t make it to the luncheon after, made time to attend the church ceremony – thank you!
