If you have seen enough of my images, you would know that I love colour. But at times, the absence of colour accentuates shape and texture even more. When I arrived at Debbie’s home that morning to capture shots of her getting ready, I was so taken in by the wallpaper in her room. Her dad put it up for her when she was young. A wallpaper filled with trains. Seems a little unusual for a little girl. :)

And now daddy’s little girl has grown up to be a beautiful bride.

While Debbie was getting ready, Belle her trusty dog kept her company. He even had a thing or two to say about ang pows. (you’ll see why later)

While I was at Debbie’s place, Mark was shooting at Eric’s home with his barely one month old Canon 5D Mark 2. :)

Back to Debbie’s gorgeous wall. :)

And of course, gorgeous Debbie herself.

I love this shot below taken by Mark.

Debbie’s home was decorated so wonderfully, in anticipation of Eric’s arrival!

When the guys came, they had to go through a few rounds of challenges (literally). The girls made them dance around a tree to music!

And then out came some Tanzanian currency. Debbie’s good friend Tariq volunteered 10,000 Tanzanian shilling, which I found out later is worth about RM23, or about 7 USD. I guess the girls were smarter and knew better than to take the money.

I love this yoga challenge. Proves how flexible the guys are in emulating these poses. How do you think they rate?

This is where Belle had her say about whether to let Eric in the room or not.

I guess Eric must already have favour in Belle’s eyes, cause he was approved! One of the cute things that Eric did was stop at Starbucks to buy Debbie coffee before he reached her home. He knew she needed her caffeine fix! How sweet is that!

At Assumption church, everything went on really smoothly and on time…

…and then there was a little drama when the flower girl decided to run down the aisle to her father instead of walk.

Debbie sharing a moment with her dad.


Wonderful emotions exchanged.

Dinner was held at Concorde Hotel in KL.

The entertainment that night was amazing! Peter Ong was the MC and singer! Beautiful duet that night.

Definitely a night filled with laughter. There were lots of great speeches and on top of that, Eric & Debbie were really surprised when their friends played a video made specially for them that night. It was completely unexpected!

Congratulations you two. Who would have thought, Debbie, that our first encounter at KOMAS years ago would have led to this friendship that we now have. And then bumping into you years later at Dave’s. I feel like I’ve journeyed together with the both of you this year and that you have made me feel so welcomed at all times. Wishing the both of you many many happy years of married bliss.

  • Beautiful shots as always. Looks like the pastor at the Assumption Church was more lenient than the wedding I shot. I was only allowed shots of very specific part of the ceremony.

    Awesome shot from Mark! I like it too. Yay for my wedding photographer! :D

    And Mark… u did the 5D Mark II proud! ;)

    I have always loved your work, and your passion for the media. Truly admirable. :)
    These featured pictures itself are amazing, I cant wait to see the rest !
    Thanks for a wonderful journey; working and knowing you, all at the same time ! We had a lot fun, and we hope to get to work with you (and your lenses) again, for a next shoot sometime soon. :)

  • Grace Tan says:

    Debbie: Thanks for your wonderful comment! :) And yes, I do hope to work together with you again in the future! Thanks for your friendship.

    Asther: Now it takes less time for us to colour grade the shots from 2 different photographers.

    Nicholas: Mark will do a great job for your wedding! :) He is an amazing photographer. As for shots of pastor, sometimes we curi-curi shoot with a long lens while seated at the aisle. :)
