Ashley & Candace’s Wedding

What a way to spend the 1st of January 2010! From the moment Ashley arrived, announcing it to the world on a loud hailer to the eating of Guinness soaked noodles, not a single moment was dull. The ceremony at Assumption church was very personal, conducted by Ashley’s own uncle. Since the 1st of January also coincides with the launch of Stories, we decided to try something different with their same day slideshow. The idea to create a story using photos + video snippets is not exactly new, but this was the first time we tried it with a same day slideshow. And the response was great.

Here are some photos from the first half of their wedding. And don’t forget to watch the slideshow! Photos taken by Grace & Johan.

Aren’t these little flower girls so adorable?

Just before dinner started at the Marco Polo restaurant in Jalan Raja Chulan, I managed to steal some time with Candace for some portraits.

I love the way the hall was decorated with balloons.

Are kids allowed to drink champagne during toasting too?

Ash’s dad was superb at performing and singing too! What a cool father!

Thanks for allowing me to be part of your day, Ash & Candace. Looking forward to our Krabi photo shoot together!

Christina + Chee Su, The Hague, Netherlands

I’ve known Chee Su’s sister Choon Ean for years. Not only have we worked together on various projects but we’ve also traveled to numerous countries together (eg. Nepal, Myanmar etc) sharing the same room for weeks! Choon Ean is a really amazing person and an excellent videographer, shooting with the Wedding Story team for various weddings. So I felt totally comfortable being around her and Chee Su’s family. Then when I met Christina and her family, they made me feel like family too! The entire Ouwerkerk family is just hilarious and they crack me up with their jokes and cute little antics.

The wedding was full of drama, emotions, smiles, tears and laughter. I have so much to give thanks for. Firstly, I was completely relieved that I had recovered from my flu by the time the wedding rolled around. Secondly, I am grateful to God for giving me this opportunity to shoot in the Netherlands, 13 hours by flight away from Malaysia. And thirdly, for the beautiful people who were there that day – they made my photos shine with their warm smiles.

The day started with beautiful sunshine. Christina woke up, went to the hairdressers, and then came home to do her own wedding make up! Apparently it’s very normal for people in Holland to do their own make up, since make up artists are few and also very expensive. The wedding ring shot was taken in Christina’s back yard. Can you believe they have a grape vine in their backyard?

Christina loves butterflies. I found some in her garden. :) And also this bouquet was done by Christina! How amazing is that! Even the decorations at the church was done by her and the entire family.

They were all smiles when they met that morning.

Warren & Amy Weds! Part 1

Some time back I blogged about Warren and Amy’s portrait session at KTM. Recently Warren and Amy said “I do!” to each other in the company of many witnesses at Putrajaya Marriott. There’s just so much joy and love in this wedding. It just overflows, you really cannot contain it! Amy is such a beautiful bride, it’s no surprise that Warren could hardly take his eyes off her that day! There are thousands of photos from this wedding, it was a really tough choice to choose just a few to highlight here. Photos were taken by Grace and Mark.

The Wedding of Kelvin & Cathryn

If you talk about unconventional couples, Kelvin and Cathryn definitely fit the bill. Both Kel and PC as they are affectionately known, serve in Eaglepoint church in Puchong. In fact, PC is a pastor and Kel is the worship director in church. Their wedding theme is called “A Story of Grace“, done in a movie style. I love the movie posters that they have created as decorations. The excitement on that day was just incredible. The church was packed and people were standing everywhere. You would have thought that there was a concert going on!

There are way too many photos from their wedding to post here. These are some of my favourites.

The groom and all 6 of his best men strutted their way down the aisle in style!

It was really sweet when Kel sang as PC walked down the aisle…

And then she started singing too!

After the church ceremony, we adjourned for lunch at a nearby restaurant, did the tea ceremony and then some portraits after!

After a while, storm clouds started to gather and we scrambled to maximize the clouds before it poured!

And finally, our own team shot from that day’s shoot. From left to right: Alex, Grace, Kee Sitt, Sharon Koo and Sharon Chong. We took this shot at 3.30pm in the afternoon. Want to find out how we turned day to night? Will blog about it in another post!
