Chinese-Malay Wedding: Atif & Irene

While movies and novels may glamorize the idea of romantic relationships, the truth is, finding happily ever after is not as easy as it sounds. It takes a deep trust to share one’s true self, fears, dreams, and insecurities. True love flourishes when both partners can be open and honest without fear of judgment. This is the story of Atif & Irene.

“Atif and I met at a friend’s party around 10 years ago in Melbourne, we became fast friends but it was a short friendship as he graduated and went back to KL the same year. We reunited in 2018 when he went to Singapore to take a break after a break up with his ex. Even then, we struggled with insecurities of our own and whether we should take on this relationship as it would be a long-distance relationship (LDR). He was especially cautious about this relationship as it was far from his ideal relationship he had in mind. However, as time went by, we realised that the both of us still managed to be by each other’s side despite the distance and challenges. Even until today I think the main foundation of our relationship is because we both want to stay in this relationship with this person.

We don’t have an anniversary because that way I can receive as many gifts whenever I want! (but also I don’t remember when I fell in love with him). Atif still has many insecurities, but I’ve learnt to have fun with him as the days goes by. I am still learning to express myself better around him to make him feel safe with me.”

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:
