Pre-Wedding at Taaras Resort, Redang: Jonathan & Vanilla

This is a love story that spans across two countries… Malaysia and China. It was Vanilla’s best friend’s wedding in Penang and the 7th time she became a bridesmaid. So Vanilla travelled from China to attend the wedding, not thinking that she would ever find love on this side of the ocean. For the past 6 weddings, she had always rushed to grab the bouquet but this time, the couple specially presented the bouquet to her as a gift. As fate would have it, during her trip to KL after the wedding, she met Jonathan, who was her friend’s younger brother. Her first thought was that this boy was cute! They didn’t really have much time to chat until the day she was due to travel to the airport. Jonathan was tasked to send her to the airport and it was during that loooong ride that they got to know each other.

Vanilla was surprised that at the end of that ride, he expressed his love at first sight to her. He immediately hooked her heart that day, and soon, they were messaging each other everyday. Their relationship blossomed despite their age difference with him being younger.

I was privileged to travel with them to The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort on Redang Island for their pre-wedding photo session. Despite the rainy weather forecast, everything went really well and we had a beautiful day together. The couple’s family also came along for the trip, so we squeezed in some shots with them. All the best to the both of you as you start your life’s journey together.

Beach Wedding at Four Seasons Langkawi: Sean & Michelle


This love story was written 13 years ago in 2004, where Sean met Michelle for the first time at the Chinese Melbourne Community Quest. She was a contestant, and clearly captured the attention of Sean that night.

Their wedding day marks their 12th year anniversary. Their love for adventure and sunshine makes Langkawi the perfect destination location for their wedding. It was not surprising that they chose the beautiful Four Seasons Resort in Langkawi, well known for their white, sandy beaches and breathtaking sunsets. Tears were shed at this wedding, which made us feel really emotional too!

Congratulations to the newlywed Moos, may the road ahead be filled with more barefooted adventures in the sun.

Orange tones at Emma & Laurence’s Beach Wedding

Emma and Laurence are a British couple that have lived in Malaysia for the past 18 months. Their journey together started at Cambridge university where they met and did activities like row together. That was 10 years ago. Since then, the adventure has never stopped. From eating insects in Cambodia, to enjoying sunrises over the temples of Bagan and searching for sharks while scuba diving, their life is full of excitement. Since they love to travel and with 50 over guests coming all over to the world to Langkawi for their wedding, they decided to go for a travel theme with an orange tone. The beautiful location that the Andaman is in, with the mix of rainforest and beach was the perfect setting for their wedding.

When they first contacted us, they told us that after talking to friends who have already celebrated their wedding day, everyone commented how they wish they had thought more about the photographs. Keen not to have the same regret, and impressed by the photos on our website, they decided to hire us as their wedding photographers! Hurray! And from their comment about our work after the wedding, I think we lived up to their expectations!

Emma says: Jamie and Nigel were amazing. Not only did they put us at ease (there were some worries about ‘photo face’) but they were such good fun to spend the day with. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better. It is hard to pick which part of the day was our most memorable – Between the Mandi Bunga (which was a first for almost everybody there) and our dance at the reception, but I think it has to be the ceremony itself,  especially as it didn’t rain and we could have it on the beach.

Westin Langkawi Beach Wedding: Justin & Nicole

While the team is in Langkawi yet again for another wedding today, we thought that it’d be wonderful to share another set from a wedding at the Westin, Langkawi. The peach, pastel tones of the bridesmaids’ outfits look so sweet against the earthy tones of the beach. I also like how the coffee beans were a feature in their ring box (reflecting the coffee addict in Nicole!) – not only did it look good, it smelt heavenly too! Here’s how one coffee encounter led to something bigger and better…

20160312_WEDDING_JUSTIN_NICOLE_32Nicole & Justin:

Like most relationships, we got together through a combination of luck, perseverance, and fate. We were introduced by a mutual friend, but it was not exactly like sparks flew the moment we met, especially since Nicole had one dating condition – no dating lawyers!

Through luck (Nicole accepted Justin’s friend request and actually replied to his Facebook messages), perseverance (constant spamming by Justin on Facebook) and fate ( we were both single then), we went out one fateful day for coffee. Coffee turned into dinner. Dinner turned into missed appointments for the day. It felt like we had so much to share that day (Justin: so much that I held my need to pee for a good 5 hours). That was the start of a beautiful relationship.

It hasn’t always been easy, but we’ve both realized that tolerance and giving in has been the reason we still love each other very much every day. Justin is now a pseudo coffee addict (he secretly prefers Teh Tarik more) while Nicole is a pseudo active gym member (She spends more time on social media than the treadmill). It also helps that we share loads of common interests- our dog, traveling and just being lazy, and we make a good team – Justin manages the finances, and Nicole everything else.

For us, we know that no matter what happens, how annoyed we are with each other and how stressful our day has been, it will always be alright because we have each other.

Rustic Datai Langkawi wedding: Graham & Elaine

Two architects with an eye for detail and the love of the outdoors found their perfect location to celebrate their union – on the beach at the Datai, Langkawi. Graham grew up in Scotland, and that was where he met this cute, Malaysian-born girl named Elaine. With such a deep attraction to life off the grid, Graham and Elaine chose to live in Nova Scotia, Canada (google it, the location looks totally AMAZING!). It boasts a totally magical natural landscape, and they own a house in the forest overlooking the cove to the south and the Atlantic ocean to the east. Photovoltaic panels power their house with electricity, and they use wood for heat and water from a well. Their neighbours include birds, squirrels, porcupine, loons, ducks, deer and mink.

What a lifestyle that is so connected to nature. I love the thought of it, though I don’t think I am personally able to live like that!

20160227-WEDDING_GRAHAM_ELAINE-01 20160227-WEDDING_GRAHAM_ELAINE-02Graham and Elaine’s wedding was the perfect blend of Scottish tradition meeting Malaysian flavours. Even her wedding gown had elements of the Scottish kilt and the top of her gown had Indian elements, representing Elaine’s heritage. The colours green and purple are their favourites and they have incorporated them into their attire and wherever possible. Elaine’s mother crocheted the sole-less sandals for the bride and her bridesmaids and the whole look with the decorations were so rustic, organic and natural.

At the wedding reception, they shared stories of places they have been to and things they have done through story cards displayed on each table. So many intricate details that are simple, minimal and thoughtful.
