What a privilege to be involved in the same wedding as the world-renowned Jason Magbanua from the Philippines! It was Jason’s first wedding shoot in Malaysia. Anne is a school friend of mine but we haven’t seen each other in years! So it was really exciting to catch up with her recently when she contacted Wedding Story to do a special video for her and Jeff. The video is a series of questions that she and Jeff wrote, each not knowing what the other person wrote. They only discovered the answers on their wedding day when this video was played. We’re always excited when couples are willing to try out new ideas to make their wedding day memorable. Congratulations to the both of you!
This has got to be the wedding of the year. The wedding celebrations took place over a few days and at various locations – including India and Malaysia. I got to know Dato’ Ravi Dharan through Jeffri Lim from Sunflower Paper Products (they have a shop at the Curve). Dato’ Ravi wanted to create a surprise video for his lovely daughter Savitha. Together with his wife, Latha, they organized Savitha’s childhood photos and after a few meetings, the Wedding Story team went over to Dato’ Ravi’s home to secretly interview him without his daughter’s knowledge.
I can tell from my encounters with Dato’ Ravi and Latha, that truly, Savitha is the limelight of their lives. The wedding at the Palace of the Golden Horses was so grand – they had the Hindu ceremony on the lake witnessed by guests through live video feed in the Grand Marquee. A few days later, a black tie dinner took place at the Imperial Hotel, where this video was played to an audience like Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim and ex-President of Indonesia – Abdurrahman Wahid (Gus Dur).
Congratulations, Andre and Savitha, I wish you all the best in your marriage and am so glad that you enjoyed watching this specially crafted video.
