Singapore’s most beloved radio DJs Glenn Ong and Jean Danker have finally tied the knot after an epic 5-year engagement with an intimate (but very rambunctious) wedding yesterday at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa.
A self-professed “bridechilla”, Jean looked like a vision of loveliness in a form-fitting lace Berta Bridal gown with plunging V-neck from Belle & Tulle, and hair and makeup by Jeric Salon and Makeup Entourage. Supposedly she’s the first person in Singapore to don a Berta, ever!
As a special honour to her late mother who passed three years ago, Jean affixed a gold heart-shaped pendant from Tiffany & Co. to her hand bouquet engraved with "You're always in my heart Mum. Love, Jean."
Her dashing groom wore a snazzy black suit with bow-tie and walked down the aisle with the couple’s Jack Russel, Biscuit. Supposedly, the pooch was slated to wear a matching tux but it was too loose on him!
In cheesy fashion, Glenn walked down the aisle with Biscuit to the song Hooked on a Feeling of Ally McBeal/Guardians of the Galaxy fame. Under a modern contemporary altar designed by Merrylove Weddings and Fiona Treadwell, the couple exchanged self-penned vows (some parts hilarious) facing a gorgeous sunset, officiated by pastor Lawrence Lim of New Creation Church. Guests sat around the open-air Straits Veranda in a mishmash of colourfully clashing furniture by Second Charm.
During cocktail hour, everyone enjoyed a delicious array of canapes, assorted sweet treats from Enjoué, and mobile bars – freshly brewed coffee by Of Mice and Men and whiskey by Johnny Walker.
As with any DJ wedding, the 280-strong guestlist was also a starry lineup of well-known faces like Class 95FM DJs Yasminne Cheng, Tim Oh, The Muttons and Simone Heng and Glenn’s spirited gang of colleagues.
A traditional Chinese dinner menu was served in the Straits Ballroom, decked in minimalist white with a custom-made aisle with verse “And two shall become one”, calligraphied by The Workroom. Fairy lights draped from the ceiling and stage backdrop added a dreamy element to the memorable affair.
The music connoisseur couple definitely did not disappoint with the dinner playlist, complete with top hits of the 90s, and live music from veteran band Jive Talkin'. Hosted by Gold 90.5FM DJ William Xavier, dinner was filled with side-splitting speeches by the couple where Jean took digs at her groom hoping his third marriage to her will finally stick!
Some special details that elevated the night were hilarious photobooth moments by One Night Spaces, an impressive tiered cake by Bengawan Solo embellished with colourful blooms by Boenga Flowers & Designs, and after-party dance music spun by Chris Ho.
