An Intimate Wedding – Ariel & Min Yi

Simple and heartwarming are the words that we would use to describe Ariel and Min Yi’s wedding. We enjoyed the time photographing them, they were very considerate and always made sure we were doing okay. It’s nice to have people who are close to us to celebrate this big day with us. Min Yi wished her mother could be there to witness this day for her. But her mom was remembered through her picture on Min Yi’s bridal flower bouquet. What a sweet touch!

We are truly grateful to have had the opportunity to capture their wedding day.

Wedding: Simon and Belinda

We have heard many love stories from couples over the years, but we just couldn’t get enough of them.

Here’s the story of how Simon and Belinda met.

“I spent 6 years living in Shanghai. After moving to Malaysia, I would regularly travel to Shanghai to meet my friends. Then on one trip, I met Simon for the first time. Between my work schedule and being based in Malaysia, his love for travel, we both didn’t really think that we would be more than just friends.

As months went on, Simon was the first to start affirming that “us” is what he wanted, and his commitment really made me feel like despite all the uncertainty and obstacles, we could work. Fast forward to 5 years of long distance communication and trips, we are now getting married, and he’s moved to Malaysia.”

We love Simon and Belinda’s story, and we are truly grateful to have had the opportunity to capture their wedding day.

An Intimate Wedding: Felix & Serene

Witnessing couples like Felix and Serene get married despite all the uncertainty that a pandemic brings makes us so happy. The couple arranged everything to be done safely at their own home so it was a very intimate ceremony with only family members and closest friends – all masked up.

Felix’s parents live in Kota Kinabalu and just a week before, he wasn’t even sure if his parents could make it. Being the first child to get married would have been a milestone that his parents might have to miss. In the end, they managed to fly them in just in the nick of time. Phew!

His sister who was in Australia had to attend the wedding through a live-stream video that we set up. Thank God for technology though, it really brings people together in the moment. We could even her crying through the livestream video when the bride and groom were saying their vows. When the ceremony was over, they got a group photo with her through a iPad. A funny experience for all of them with lots of giggles in between.

This was a really special wedding for us to be a part of. Felix and Serene were also so thoughtful, they sent us a cake afterwards just to say thank you and wrote us this lovely message:

Chinese Tea Ceremony & Wedding Dinner: Yun & Madeline

There’s just something about Chinese weddings that make you feel a rush of excitement. Maybe its the flurry of the morning tea ceremony and all its rituals with family, or large groups of friends and family that gather to celebrate with the couple at night. Whatever it is, Yun and Madeline’s wedding day was one to remember. The couple had already done a ceremony in Australia, so this one was specially for very close friends and family back in Kuala Lumpur.

The couple looked stunning in all three outfits changes and the dinner speeches had us and the guests in happy tears! We’re so glad to see yet another happy couple find forever in each other’s arms. See the full collection and watch the video highlights below.

Wedding Video Highlight: Shri & Hui Ru

Hui Ru loves cats, nasi lemak, chocolate, coffee & sleeping. She aims to maintain a minimalist lifestyle with little distractions & things in her life, dreaming of reaching financial freedom in a few years. Shri is passionate in teaching young people on how to reach their best and happiest version of themselves. On weekends, they enjoy simple things in life like having brunch together and playing with Shri’s nephew.

Shri and Hui Ru celebrated their marriage at Ti Chen, The Saujana Hotel. It was lovely to see elements of their cultures coming together in unity and even more so, to see the joy that friends, family, and the couple had on their faces throughout the day. Their view of life resonates with us too!

“We see each other as soulmates. Before we met each other we were caught up with work & serving our families & the community. But the first time we paused and took time to get to know each other , we realized what true happiness is.” 

Here’s the wedding video highlight we did for them. Thank you for having us Shri and Hui Ru! It was a special day indeed.
