In any outdoor wedding, there is some sort of anxiety about how the weather will turn out. Will it rain? Will it be too hot? Will there be a breeze? But for Albert & Michelle’s wedding, it was just… perfect. The sun was up, but it wasn’t scorching. Makes for lovely light!
The theme was purple, white and silver.
I love the way these rose petals sat in Albert & Michelle’s wedding invite.
Albert sang as Michelle walked down the aisle. So lovely!
One week prior to Pierre & Lay See’s actual wedding day, they had another grand dinner. This time, it was held at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Malacca. The theme: Chinese. I absolutely love the thought that went into every little detail of the wedding. Definitely one of the best decorated dinner halls I have ever seen! Don’t you agree with me?
Pink was the colour theme of the night. Lay See had 3 lovely dresses to wear, just that night itself!
Not too long ago, I posted a blog entry about Jack and LeAnne, and their pre-wedding shoot in Putrajaya. Well, they are now married! I haven’t been to Ipoh for a while, so I was delighted to have the opportunity to shoot their wedding in Ipoh. Both Jack and LeAnne were really hospitable, and they made sure that I was comfortable at all times. Both Alex and I felt really at home and touched by their thoughtfulness! Wishing the both of you years and years of happiness ahead!
Dennis and Say Wan were my university friends and they got together when they were in university and now it has been my privilege to shoot their wedding. It was totally awesome and fun filled that I was up shooting together with Ian from 7am all the way till about 1am the next day.
Here are some of the photos we took on that day.
The girls were eagerly awaiting for Say Wan to have her make-up done.
Caught this funny expression when Say Wan was trying to tell her MUA about something.
Let the games begin!
The one thing I saw recently, especially after this whole issue which was blown out of proportion, was that yoga has been incorporated into the morning games as well ;)
But nothing could stand in the way of all the guys.
The best part about both Dennis and Say Wan is that they both support Liverpool. I still remember the days back in the UK where we would drive all the way to Anfield in the middle of the night to catch the Champions League matches.
After all the events of the day, we managed to catch a breather before dinner started.
Finally, a shot of the bouquet.
This was an awesome shot taken by Ian of the march in.
The speech by the best man.
The grandness of the ballroom. I always thought that chandeliers were cheesy but I guess it does look spectacular sometimes.
And finally, the couple’s first dance together.
One down and two more weddings to blog about. And yes, this is my first post here :)
Tammy and I have been friends since we were in kindergarten. I knew Jordan too when I was about 5 and we all grew up in Malacca. It’s such an honour whenever I am hired to shoot a friend’s wedding. The job becomes more meaningful considering the long history we had together as friends. Tammy is the most photogenic bride I know. She’s really tall, model like and has a wonderful dazzling smile. Jordan is such a lucky man!
We had to travel a lot for this wedding. Alex, Kee Sitt, Sharon and I traveled to Malacca the day before the wedding. The games and tea ceremony was done in Malacca, and after lunch, we packed into the car, and went back north towards KL. I had to do the photo slideshow, but since there was not much time left (we left Malacca at 2pm, and had to be at the hotel in KL by 6pm!)…. I had to start off the slideshow in the car. Got my notebook, hard drive fired up, a sunshade on my head to block off the sun and did the work while we were in the car on the way up to KL. We even did a behind the scenes video of this… it’ll come up soon! Such a close call… when I arrived back in KL, I only had an hour to touch up the photos and then render the video while we were on the way to the next destination – Equatorial Hotel, KL. Below are some of the photos we took during the day.
These poor guys… they had to submit to the wishes of the chee muis.. these guys and girls have been friends since secondary school.. so there was absolutely no mercy for the guys!
Poor Ashish had to swallow a whole lump of wasabi!! That was so evil… I am sure that was like half a tube or something.
Then of course Jordan had to do some pumping… work for the woman!
The guys were so naughty – after wearing the disposable underwear, they tried to ‘surprise’ the girls by putting the undies on their heads!
Which I substituted for a long white veil later on… this was taken nearby Tammy’s home… at a so-called paddy field. I think it was more like an empty plot of land with lalang.
At night, Alex and I were off-duty as Tammy had hired someone else to cover the dinner photography. So it was really nice to be a guest for once!! Kee and Sharon had to work as they were doing the video, unfortunately… but that gave us the opportunity to catch some photos of them at work! We enjoyed ourselves tremendously as I caught up with old friends who had traveled from overseas to be at the dinner that night.
Can you see Sharon, right at the back of the room? Slightly blocked, unfortunately. This was taken during a small blessings ceremony before the dinner in Equatorial. Below… my friends doing silly things like balancing the wedding favours between their mouths and their noses.
Finally, a normal photo! If you’d like to view the slideshow that we created that day (express one!!) click on the video below…
