There’s a verse in the Bible that says…

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:

If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!

Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?

Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

If you ever get to know Han How & Lydia, you’ll know that this is one relationship that is strong. It’s strong not just because of the bond of love that glues them together, but because Christ is in the centre of all they do. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Han How and Lydia’s wedding was filled with lots of love, laughter and warmth. The worship session in church was so uplifting and spirit filled, I could not help but sing along as I pressed the shutter button on my camera. Even Johan said that there was something different about this church wedding.

Han How & Lydia, I am so blessed to have been there at your wedding, photographing the both of you. I am always happy to be photographing weddings, but more so when the couple are personal friends of mine. Keep this strand strong between the both of you and God. All the best for the future!

Here are a selection of my favourite images from their wedding.

The heng tais looking pweetty.

They had to go to a coffee shop near Lydia’s home and ask strangers to stick little heart-shaped stickers on their faces…

At Lydia’s home, the girls blindfolded the guys so that they won’t see what’s coming…

As you can tell, some guys lost more hair than others.

Getting past the chee muis to Lydia’s room was a difficult task for Han How as he had to answer lots and lots of questions!

Heading to church…

Han How’s nephew is super adorable!

Han How & Lydia met at church years ago while they were both serving in the worship ministry. Han How plays the guitar while Lydia plays the keyboard. During their pre-wedding session, the guitar made a brief appearance.

Some portraits after the ceremony.

Lydia’s relatives from Indonesia surprised her by making these gorgeous bouquets!

Dinner was held at Renaissance Hotel in KL.

Han How’s classic expressions as he tried to pop the cork. Eventually, the cork did pop – and it fell 3 feet in front of him.

We had so much fun that day. By the way, can you spot Alex? :) Thanks Han How and Lydia for everything!
