A Nyonya Pre-Wedding: Jackson & Julie

Photographer: Grace
Location: The Wok Cafe

Some time back, Weddings Malaysia organized a virtual treasure hunt competition for brides and grooms. We participated as a vendor and offered a pre-wedding session as one of the prizes. And that was how I got to know Jackson & Julie. Over a cup of coffee at Starbucks, I got to know the both of them and chatted about what we could do for their pre-wedding session. Since Julie is a nyonya just like me, I suggested we do a vintage shoot in a typical Peranakan cafe. While The Little Nyonya show was playing on TV, we spent 2 hours exploring every corner of this place (in between bowls of cendol, of course!)

Jackson & Julie will be getting married this coming December… so I wish you all the best for the future!

By the way, Julie painstakingly sewed this kasut manik-manik (beaded shoes) herself. Amazing!
