By the time you’re reading this, Sheila Sim would officially be a married woman. 

The 22-table wedding luncheon was attended by close friends of the couple; people who have seen them grow up, friends they have grown up with, friends who have witnessed their journey as a couple and even some who flew in from Taiwan and Hong Kong specially to witness the big day.

According to Sheila’s manager, the wedding venue was decorated based on the couple’s love story with lots of balloons, inspired by Disney Pixar animation UP. Among the celebrity friends in attendance today were  Chen Hanwei, Elvin Ng, Nat Ho, Dennis Chew, Chew Chor Meng and Pan Ling Ling.

After the wedding, the couple will be heading for a snowboarding trip - but this won’t be their honeymoon, as Sheila has confirmed her involvement in upcoming Channel 8 longform drama, Reach for the Skies, and she will only be able to embark on her honeymoon in September, after filming wraps for her.

Sheila previously shared that she enlisted the help of a wedding planner, but that her husband, a 37-year-old banker named Deon Woo, became one of her biggest pre-wedding headaches because he was a “bit too relaxed” about the whole affair - in other words, bochup (couldn’t care less).

The bride shared through a short statement issued by The Celebrity Agency, “On this big day, being married to him, all I can feel is ‘I am home.’”

The couple also shared their pre-wedding photoshoot photos with Toggle, which are believed to be taken in the Tiong Bahru area, where their love nest is located. 

In these photos, Deon’s face was revealed for the first time, as Sheila has been fiercely protective of her non-celebrity boyfriend-turned-fiancé, and now husband, since their relationship was revealed. 

The couple got to know each other through a dating application and got engaged six months after knowing each other, and barely a year after the news of their engagement hit the headlines, they have officially become man and wife.

On his post, Romeo wrote, "Very honoured to be here witnessing this moment! Very super duper happy for both of you. Congratulations Sheila&Deon! (sic)"

Elvin later posted the same photo and wrote, "Sheila has been my closest and truest friend ever since we met, and I’m so glad she’s found a really good husband in Deon." He then joked, "I was on the verge of tearing when they walked in but I had to stop myself in case people thought it’s because I’m not the groom."
