The decentralized, blockchain-based metaverse, The Sandbox, hosted its first-ever hybrid digital and real-life wedding.

Singaporean couple Joanne Tham and Clarence Chan, CEO of the music company Bandwagon, celebrated their marriage with a “70s disco glam” theme on September 17.

The event took place in a digital replica of Singapore’s renowned Alkaff Mansion within The Sandbox metaverse.

While the couple was physically present at a real-world hotel venue with some guests, their digital counterparts in the form of avatars were simultaneously present in the Sandbox metaverse, viewable by remote attendees.

The web3 design agency, Smobler Studios, played a key role in recreating the Alkaff Mansion and its distinctive architecture within The Sandbox. 1.Group is responsible for managing the actual Alkaff Mansion in the real world.
