“What’s exciting about the metaverse wedding is that you’re not limited to getting into your physical human form or wearing typical clothes. You can come as an alien, a robot, a polar bear… the possibilities are endless,” Mr Chan said.
The wedding venue was decorated with super trees, a Cinderella horse-drawn carriage and a giant calligraphy sign of the word “xi”, a Chinese character often seen at Chinese weddings that means “double happiness”.
Ms Tham walked down the aisle at the virtual venue – a digital reproduction of the popular wedding venue The Alkaff Mansion on Telok Blangah Hill.
The mansion’s distinctive architecture and recognizable key features such as the garden conservatory, European-style water fountains and wide balustrade staircases were brought to life in their digital forms by design firm Smobler Studios.
The agency said that with the metaverse celebrations are no longer limited by physical presence or distance.
“We are delighted to be able to create Singapore’s first-ever metaverse wedding… allowing friends, family and loved ones from afar to join the celebrations around the world,” said co-founder Mrs Loretta Chen.
