Garden wedding at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang, Penang: Greta & Mohit (part1)

Garden Ceremony & Dinner Reception: Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort, Penang, Malaysia
Photographers: Grace & Johan
Videographer: Wedding Story

Months ago, I received an enquiry from Greta, who resides in the UK. We exchanged a couple of emails, and then she booked us to cover her wedding. I met Greta for the first time on her wedding day, but the moment I started talking to her, it felt as if we have known each other for months. She is really bubbly and fun, and I found out that she used to go to the same primary school as I did, in Malacca! The similarities end there, however… since I don’t have a black belt in martial arts, as Greta does!

Mohit is more subdued, but he enjoys things like climbing mountains and diving. Their family and friends flew from UK, Australia and many other parts of the world to be in Penang for their wedding ceremony.

Greta’s wedding dress is really unique. I love the detail on her gown.

And her wedding invite is superb too! Red is one of my favourite colours.

And of course, Greta looks really amazing!

Of course, Mohit looks pretty good himself!

The gorgeous bridal party.

I loooove garden & beach weddings. The garden at Rasa Sayang Resort combines the best of both worlds – you can have a garden ceremony and portraits by the beach!

Sam & Caryn’s Garden Wedding

Sam & Caryn exude a warmth that makes it hard not to like them. Even from the moment I got to know them, they treated me like an old time friend. Caryn loves to laugh, and she has an amazing smile. They have such attention to detail, I love every bit of the deco they created for their wedding! Mark was so awed by the beauty of their garden wedding that he told me, “I’m seriously considering a garden wedding now!” It was a pleasure photographing their wedding.

Albert & Michelle, Garden Wedding at Cyberview Lodge, Part2

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.

Wedding of Ronnie & Ivy

I am really excited to write this blog post. Ronnie & Ivy are my closest friends, and it was really special to have photographed their wedding recently in September. I am constantly touched by their friendship – they are always there to lend support, trustworthy, and always willing to do silly things together with Alex and I.

They even got married at the same place I said “I do” 2 years ago; at Palace of the Golden Horses, at the very same garden! A year back, Alex and I also had the priviledge of planning Ronnie’s surprise proposal to Ivy, during a cruise in Putrajaya. He made fortune cookies for all our friends and hid the ring in the cookie! What a creative guy! We really love the both of you, Ronnie & Ivy. There’s so many photos to share, but here are just a few from that day, with more to come!

The games are hilarious! Here are just some of the things that the guys had to do… Ronnie looks like he enjoys dressing up…

After going through all those obstacles, Ronnie finally gets his bride, and we head off to Tmn Tun park for a quick portraiture session.

We put the red bra to good use…

After all that fun running about in the sun, we headed back to their homes for the tea ceremony, and then in the afternoon to Palace for the church ceremony on the garden.

Ronnie was surprised towards the end of the ceremony when Ivy picked up the microphone and said that she had prepared a song for him! Look at his face… can you see the awe oozing out of him?

Since both Ronnie & Ivy are futsal fans, I couldn’t miss this opportunity to take a few more shots with them, this time with a ball!

Dinner was held at the ballroom after that. God granted them beautiful weather that day – the very next day, it stormed! Congratulations Ronnie & Ivy!
