While some celebrities opt for grand weddings, model-actress Sheila Sim went down the intimate route, with a small-scale wedding. And when we say small, we mean only 13 tables.

Sheila and her husband, 37-year-old banker Deon Woo, got married last Sunday (Jan 28) after being engaged for slightly more than a year.

The couple reportedly met through a dating app.

According to The Straits Times, apart from friends and family, some of the attendees include makeup artist Clarence Lee and hairstylist Dexter Ng - presumably the duo behind the hair and makeup and styling for the wedding since they were tagged - fashion stylist Jeremy Tan and artistes Chen Han Wei, Chew Chor Meng, Pan Ling Ling, Dennis Chew and Elvin Ng.

Actress-model Sheila Sim weds banker Deon Woo in intimate celebration

  • Actress-model Sheila Sim tied the knot with her fiance Deon Woo in an intimate celebration on Sunday (Jan 28).
  • The 32-year-old's wedding day comprised a gatecrash, solemnisation, tea ceremony and a 22-table lunch reception, The Celebrity Agency said in a statement. Thirteen tables were reserved for family members.
  • Those present were "very close friends of the couple", including some who flew in from Taiwan and Hong Kong, and those who saw them grow up, the agency added.
  • Sim met Woo, a 37-year-old Singaporean banker, on a dating application, according to previous media reports.
  • He proposed to her at sunset on a snowy Hokkaido mountain top on New Year's eve in 2016, after they had been dating for about six months.
  • On Sunday, their wedding venue was decorated with "lots of balloons", inspired by the Disney Pixar movie Up.
  • Sim added in the statement: "On this big day, being married to him, all I can feel is 'I am home'."
  • The couple will be going on a holiday to Nozawa, Japan after the wedding, but the agency has said that this will not be their honeymoon as the actress is currently shooting a Channel 8 long-form drama, Reach For The Skies.
  • She will not be going for her honeymoon until production ends in September.

In the wedding photos, the couple were dressed in Chanel, with Sheila wearing a collared top, vest and maxi skirt. Not quite the typical wedding dress, but it's pretty nonetheless.

In fact, we wouldn't be surprised even if she had opted for Chanel's tuxedo wedding dress from the Haute Couture collection because she definitely could have pulled it off.

The couple will reportedly head to Japan for a holiday (or minimoon, as couples nowadays call it) since her current schedule doesn't give her enough time-off for a honeymoon.
