how it began
Sherly has always been roped in to plan many soirees, company events and friends’ wedding, but weddings are always her personal favourite. Though it was actually her own wedding that was the inspiration to start Tie the Knot. Pulling together her own big, fat Malay/Chinese wedding within 6 months, she discovered she loved every minute of it. She relished every moment of the crazy, hectic, challenging world of wedding planning whilst never succumbing to Bridezilla moments. She also felt that creating happy moments for people gave her such an exhilarating high. She now shares her expertise and services with other soon-to-be brides, hence the birth of this ‘boutique’ enterprise. Hiring a wedding planner is no longer a luxury only for the well-heeled, at Tie the Knot we bring your perfect day to life.
Meeting Sherly for the first time is like catching up with a long-lost childhood friend. Her upbeat personality, can-do attitude and laid-back vibe contribute to her planning success. Sherly enjoys forming close relationships with her clients and gets a kick bringing their ideas to life. Rather than taking complete control over your wedding, our aim is to work together hand in hand with you to bring your dreams of your special day into reality. At Tie the Knot, we aim to bridge that gap between you and your vendors, providing fresh and unique perspectives to create that special day just for you. Well known for her styling background, creativity and ability to think outside the box, Sherly truly listens to the client, making each wedding memorable and intimate no matter what the size.
