Chinese Weddings

Wedding in Brunei: Brandon & Alison

Brandon, being an avid photographer, naturally was very involved in the selection process of a wedding photographer for his big day. We chatted over Skype months before the wedding, and I got to know that he and Alison had been together for 7 years, but they were currently living in two different countries – he in Hong Kong and Alison in China, her home country. Brandon’s family moved from Sarawak to Brunei years ago and this was where he grew up. It was my first time to Brunei, and it reminded me of Malaysia years ago… the wealth of the country doesn’t seem to reflect in its architecture. Jamie and I spent the night before the wedding going to the local night market and tasting red durian for the very first time.

Brandon’s wedding was held at the famous Church of Our Lady of Assumption in Brunei. The dinner was held at this location which I was told, is one of the best in Brunei – The Empire Hotel & Country Club. I was blown away at the grandeur of the decorations at their wedding. It was just so breathtaking. There were royalty VIPs present at the wedding, and from his dad’s speech, it was obvious that he was proud of all Brandon had achieved in life so far, including being listed under Forbe’s 30 under 30 list.

Thank you, Brandon for your hospitality and for making us feel so at home. I wish the both of you years of happiness and joy!

Wedding Video Highlight: Ming Han & Su Yen

Ming Han, one of the Mings behind Malaysia’s famous YouTube channel, The Ming Thing is now hitched (check out #mingsubingsu)! This is one of our most emotional weddings ever. There were so many tears shed at this wedding, it made us feel like crying too! Interestingly, Su Yen used to be an intern at Integricity years ago… she wasn’t involved in photography or video, but she was doing graphic design for the digital team. Su Yen, as a talented make up artist in the industry has also worked together with us on a few projects. And funnily, a few months ago, I met Ming Han for the first time when they rented our house for a Ming Thing shoot. So we are glad to be part of their amazing wedding day.

Su Yen met Ming Han in church but their communication with each other was limited to mostly work-related stuff. They were both not each other’s “type” but God had other plans in store for them! It wasn’t until they found comfort in each other while going through rough patches that they realised there could still be hope and love with the right person.

Working in the entertainment industry which is so people-oriented has it challenges. Ming Han credits Su Yen for his ability to be the best he can be because of Su Yen’s living example of care, patience and grace, which has rubbed off on him too. It is endearing to hear them speak of each other because it is filled with so much love and respect. Congratulations, Ming Han & Su Yen… the journey ahead is going to be really beautiful yet filled with challenges. Ultimately, God is the one who will hold your hands as you walk along this path together. Lots of love from all of us.

Beach Wedding at Four Seasons Langkawi: Sean & Michelle


This love story was written 13 years ago in 2004, where Sean met Michelle for the first time at the Chinese Melbourne Community Quest. She was a contestant, and clearly captured the attention of Sean that night.

Their wedding day marks their 12th year anniversary. Their love for adventure and sunshine makes Langkawi the perfect destination location for their wedding. It was not surprising that they chose the beautiful Four Seasons Resort in Langkawi, well known for their white, sandy beaches and breathtaking sunsets. Tears were shed at this wedding, which made us feel really emotional too!

Congratulations to the newlywed Moos, may the road ahead be filled with more barefooted adventures in the sun.

Getting to know Smurfette, our prized VW Kombi!


Some things just get better with age. They develop character. They become more endearing and turn into a true gem. That is how we like to think of our Kombi. And because she’s so special to us, we’d like you to get to know her a little better too.

She’s in excellent condition considering her age. To keep her looking young we’ve dressed her in bright blue, earning her the name Smurfette! She loves company and is most comfortable with not more than eight friends at a time. She also knows it’s not cool to arrive at a party all sweaty with messed up, wind-blown hair so she ensures you enjoy the ride with an air-conditioning unit fitted in all the right places. She can be a bit loud, but she’ll be the life of the party!

Due to Smurfette’s age, she has her very own driver for all her escapades. We also make sure she’s fueled up so she has the energy to last throughout your event! Even though we know how much she likes to party with new friends, as her guardians, we have set some boundaries for her own safety (and everyone else’s!). For example, she’s not allowed to attend functions beyond 200KM of Kuala Lumpur, much to her chagrin because she’s a real party girl. However, we feel longer journeys take a toll on her and we don’t think you’d appreciate a cranky party pooper.

Limitations aside, Smurfette has already been to quite a few events. She’s been spotted at pre-wedding shoots, ferried brides to their weddings and even played a role in corporate events around town. How’s that for an old grandma like her? She loves meeting new people so if you’d like to get acquainted with her, just get in touch with us. We’d love to set up a date for you.

Baba Nyonya Styled Shoot with Wedding Scoop & Moments

As a Nyonya girl, born and bred in Malacca, I was really quite excited when Evelyn of Moments shared about the idea of doing a Peranakan Theme Styled Shoot with The Wedding Scoop. It is so uniquely Malaysian in terms of identity. I love how the blend of modern and traditional worked well together with bold colours. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to collaborate on this project. We contributed towards the behind the scenes video as shown below. Have a look at the list of talented vendors below who were involved in the project.
