The opulent ceremony brought together the best of Chinese and Western wedding traditions

After her lavish guo da li (过大礼) ceremony last week, billionaire heiress Kim Lim held her wedding solemnisation on what was reportedly one of the most popular days to get married this year: February 22, 2022.

Starting off at Lim’s family home, the ceremony saw Lim dressed in a white wedding gown from The Ivory Bridal. The two-piece Vera Wang ensemble featured a long-sleeved crop top and a tiered tulle skirt. The look was complemented with a floor-length gossamer veil.

Lim finished the look with a classic French manicure by homegrown nail salon Glitzy Fingers. She also showed off their wedding rings, which were Laurence Graff Signature wedding bands from luxury jeweller Graff.

Her groom, whose name we can now reveal as Leslie, was dressed simply in a black tuxedo with a bow tie.

The ceremony itself was garden-themed and designed by wedding planner, The Wedding Atelier. The location featured a backdrop covered in pink and cream roses as well as various abundant arrangements of hydrangeas designed by The Floral Atelier.

The couple’s initials ‘K’ and ‘L’ were also artfully placed and were decked out in roses that matched the backdrop. The ceremony reportedly took place on the patio of her 6,000 sq ft duplex penthouse.

Lim and Leow also wore matching traditional Chinese wedding attire for the tea ceremony with Lim donning an ornate kua as well as gold necklaces, gold bangles and an elaborate headpiece.

During the ceremony, Lim reportedly cried when her father, Peter Lim, gave her a red packet after drinking a cup of tea offered by his new son-in-law.

The packet contained an SG$10,000 banknote, which Singapore stopped issuing in 2014, as well as a handwritten note by the elder Lim.

“Dear Hwee & Leslie, this special note has followed Pa for a very long time and overcame many difficult years. Treasure it. All the best wishes for the future,” he wrote.

Ever the philanthropist, it was reported that the couple donated 100 bags of rice to the Animal Lovers League charity to celebrate their union.

They also repackaged the flowers used in the ceremony and gave them out to the elderly at Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home. Canned and dry food from their guo da li ceremony were also donated to different charities.
