Low-key wedding for Jamie Yeo and hubby

Low-key wedding for couple

The newlyweds have just moved into their new house in Yio Chu Kang last week.

Mr Nolte, who became a Singapore permanent resident four months ago, said: "We weren't expecting her arrival so we haven't had everything prepared. There's still loads of things to buy.

"It's going to be hectic but fun. She's gorgeous. I'm ecstatic."

The couple, who got engaged in April, were gunning for a December wedding.

But Yeo got pregnant and they decided to go through a civil ceremony at the Registry of Marriages (ROM) before the baby was born for the sake of "formality", Mr Nolte explained.

He added: "The ceremony was very low-key, which was how we wanted it. Only 10 people, including Jamie's family, were present."

The wedding party later celebrated with a dinner at Italian restaurant Ristorante Da Valentino, off Rifle Range Road.


Mr Nolte's family wasn't there but will be at the "proper wedding" planned for next April in Bali.

So fuss-free was the ROM ceremony, the couple didn't bother to engage a professional photographer.

They snapped pictures on their mobile phones instead.

They didn't exchange wedding bands then as Yeo's fingers were swollen because of the pregnancy and they did not want to get rings in the wrong sizes, Yeo said.

She has had to stop wearing her engagement ring too because of the swelling.

Yeo said: "To us, it wasn't a proper wedding. We didn't want to make a big deal out of it."

Mr Nolte was posted here 2 and a 1/2 years ago as the Asia Pacific managing director of marketing conglomerate MEC Interaction.

He now runs a marketing firm, Upfront Media, which he co-owns with Yeo.

She quit her role as an ESPN Star Sports presenter in August and is now pitching in at Upfront Media.

Yeo was previously married to Class 95 deejay Glenn Ong for five years. They divorced in July.

The New Paper broke the news about Yeo and Mr Nolte's romance when they made their first public appearance as a couple at the adidas Originals 60th Anniversary House Party in March last year.

New baby, new hubby and new home - it's certainly a brand new life for Yeo, who counts family as her priority now.

"They say marriage doesn't change you - having kids does," she said.

"Thorsten said he's going to be the disciplinarian, but I doubt he will. Neither will I. We're going to be so soft-hearted. We can't help it. She's perfect."
