A year and two months after his elaborate proposal in Japan (complete with an enormous banner and a group of excited witnesses), local singer-actor Daren Tan and Malaysian doctor Nadia Lum finally became man and wife yesterday (Nov 18).

The couple, who were introduced to each other through a mutual friend and were together for less than two years before Daren popped the question, exchanged vows in an outdoor solemnisation ceremony at the Grand Hyatt Singapore. According to their wedding photographer’s Facebook album description, the event was attended by only “the closest friends and family” and they “were blessed with glorious sunshine”.

“Praise the Lord for a great morning!! I officially married [Nadia Lum]!!! (sic)” Daren gleefully announced on Instagram after the ceremony. The 34-year-old Project SuperStar Season 2 winner later shared a quick quote with Toggle, saying, “Our wedding night is like an appetiser, the real adventures with each other begin right after but we are looking forward to it.”

The newlyweds’ “Secret Garden” themed banquet took place that evening at the same hotel and was attended by many of Daren’s famous friends in the industry, such as Shane Pow, Dennis Chew, Aileen Tan, Hossan Leong, Alaric Tay, Cheryl Wee, Alfred Sim, Tay Kewei and more. During their second march-in, Daren and Nadia sang popular wedding song, ‘Lucky’ by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat, while walking down the aisle together.
