After a five-year-long engagement, Mediacorp CLASS 95 DJ Jean Danker and Glenn Ong, a DJ at SPH Radio ONE FM 91.3, finally upgraded their relationship status to husband and wife yesterday (Dec 16).

The event, which took place at Hotel Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa, began with a sunset solemnisation ceremony on the Straits Veranda at 6pm. Glenn, wearing a tailor-made tux from The Bespoke Club, marched in with their beloved pet dog Biscuit. Jean followed soon after, looking stunning in a low-cut, lacy Berta Bridal gown (reportedly worth five figures) as she entered arm-in-arm with her father.

The vow exchange and signing of the marriage certificate were witnessed by about 80 close friends and family members. Jean and Glenn wrote their own vows, which were heartfelt yet also humorous at the same time. “I promise to love you and protect you, especially from all the creepy crawlies you’re so afraid of,” said Glenn, 46, while 35-year-old Jean promised to cheer with – or comfort – her husband whenever his favourite football team won or lost.

After the solemnisation and a cocktail reception, the banquet commenced at about 8pm and was attended by about 280 people, including many of Jean’s colleagues across the Mediacorp radio stations such as Yasminne Cheng, Bobby Tonelli, Rosalyn Lee, Simone Heng, Justin Ang, Vernon A and many more. Jean and Glenn wore the same outfits from their solemnisation, with Jean’s train and veil removed.

Guests tucked into a sumptuous dinner spread as they were entertained by a video montage, speeches and live performances by local band Jive Talkin’. The banquet was followed by a post-dinner party, where guests and the couple boogied away until midnight.

“What a great, great day, my heart is so full with love and gratitude right now. And I think I just had the wedding of my dreams. It was absolutely wonderful seeing everyone I loved in one room, laughing, eating and loving. So, so blessed. Thank you to each and every one of my guests for making the effort to be there with us!” Jean shared in a statement through The Celebrity Agency.

The newlyweds have no plans for a honeymoon, but will jet off for “a chill holiday” in Bali, Indonesia.

They started dating in 2009 and got engaged in 2011. This is Jean’s first marriage and Glenn’s third.

Jean reveals how Glenn snagged her

The day before her wedding, Jean shared a selfie of herself in full bridal gear on her Instagram page and mused about her relationship with Glenn. “We've been through it all, the ups, downs, the whole rollercoaster, and we've both arrived - thankfully still in one piece”, she wrote.

She also went on to reveal how her husband possibly won her heart. “I still remember how Glenn came to pick me up at my house, and when I stepped in, I heard Barry White playing in the car!! I found it completely hilarious, coz it's so ol skool (sic), just adorable. I think it made me fall in love with him right there and then.”
