A book-themed Pre-wedding: Alvin & Lynette

By 08/12/2015No Comments

20150818_PRE-WEDDING_ALVIN_LYNETTE_0173It’s a bookish kind of love. Sort of. Well, how do we put it… she loves books, and he doesn’t (other than comic books). Lynette is one book-reading machine – she can devour 3 books in a day! Lynette’s always nagging Alvin to read more books other than comics, so it was quite fun to illustrate this dynamic relationship through images. I love how Lynette also made her entire bouquet out of comic books (poor Alvin – I hope it didn’t come from his beloved collection!).

20150818_PRE-WEDDING_ALVIN_LYNETTE_0184Other than this book connection, Alvin and Lynette have another geeky connection – their shared love of Star Wars. We love their customised t-shirts and their entire make shift ‘campsite’ – representative of the idea that they’ll go camping together one day. Alvin loves the night sky and twinkly little lights, but somehow has never gone camping before. Lynette, on the other hand, has had countless camping experiences, especially when she was studying in Australia. So I guess an indoor camping trip to our studio would have to do for now! (sorry, we didn’t manage to paste the glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling that day).

There’s so much about this couple that we love… but we’ll leave their story for their wedding blog post, which will happen next year, as they are getting married this January!

20150818_PRE-WEDDING_ALVIN_LYNETTE_0086Alvin and Lynette also spent many hours on the phone in a long distance relationship between… guess which countries?

20150818_PRE-WEDDING_ALVIN_LYNETTE_0123I wonder how many long distance relationship couples actually go on movie ‘dates’ online – watching the same movie on their laptop or TV, in different continents, whilst Skyping at the same time!
