Singaporean Couple Tie the Knot in The Sandbox Metaverse

  • The Sandbox, 1-Group, and Smobler Studios held their first metaverse wedding.
  • The digital ceremony was officiated by Sandbox’s co-founder Sebastien Borget.
  • This is one of the first metaverse weddings in Singapore.

The Sandbox, 1-Group, and Smobler Studios held their first metaverse wedding at the Alkaff Mansion in Singapore. The wedding was hosted in real life and The Sandbox metaverse.

The wedding was a part of a collaboration between The Sandbox, 1-Group, and Smobler Studios, with web3 design agency Smobler Studios recreating the Alkaff Mansion and its distinctive architecture in The Sandbox. 1-Group was responsible for managing the real-world mansion clone.

The union, a 70s disco-themed wedding, took place on Saturday, September 17, between the founder of Bandwagon Clarence Chan and Joanne Tham. The digital ceremony was officiated by The Sandbox’s co-founder Sebastien Borget.

Borget congratulated the couple on Twitter:

All my best wishes to Clarence & Joanne who made history today. This is a great beginning for the married couple’s journey, may your love spread both in the real world and the Metaverse!

 Loretta Chen, the co-founder of Smobler Studio, highlighted the benefits of the metaverse by stressing how it would be useful for family and friends who might not be able to attend the wedding, now being present virtually. Going forward, 1-Group and Smobler plan to collaborate to make phygital and metaverse know-how and products for weddings and other events in the future.

Consequently, this is one of the first metaverse weddings in Singapore. The very first metaverse wedding took place in December 2021 where the couple got married in metaverse while simultaneously taking vows in the real world. The virtual avatars mimicked the actions of the real-life couple and even wore the same wedding outfits and paid tribute to how they had initially met nearly half a decade ago.
