Glitches at her wedding but Jade Seah still got hitched

She may have made it down the aisle over the weekend, but Jade Seah's wedding was not without its share of hiccups.

To begin with, the local actress-host, who married Mr Terence Lim last Saturday, was 15 minutes late for her morning wedding ceremony at Our Lady of Lourdes church, which 300 guests attended.

Speaking to The New Paper, Seah, 31, said with a laugh: "I just didn't realise everything took longer than expected. We took one to two hours for hair and make-up and I forgot that we had to take photos too. All that takes time."

She added: "I felt quite 'kan cheong' (Hokkien for anxious) in the car when we were stuck in traffic and I knew we were going to be late. I started singing songs as I didn't want to spoil the mood. If I complained, it would have ruined everyone's mood."

After the church wedding, the couple hosted a lunch reception at the Singapore Swimming Club where she had a dance each with her father and her new husband, 31.

The outspoken Seah even ended up as an impromptu emcee for part of the event when she grabbed the microphone and introduced her friends who were going to give speeches.

She did not hire an official emcee in order to "keep it chill", she explained.

In the evening, Seah experienced some drama during her wedding dinner at Chijmes Hall.

She lost her headpiece right before the banquet, which was attended by 150 guests, and it had everyone scrambling to look for it.

"I was holding it in my hand, but I must have dropped it on my way from the car to the make-up room. I did freak out a little bit," she said.

"Everyone around me was so stressed and I thought I was going to walk in without my headpiece. My cousin was going to make a makeshift one for me on the spot."

Thankfully, Seah's mother had her prayers answered when a security guard picked up the shiny accessory and handed it back to her in the nick of time.
