We are excited to reveal some images taken at a recent styled shoot as a collaboration between a few vendors brought together by Weddings Malaysia. When we heard that Colony had a new co-working space at Star Boulevard with a beautiful ballroom, we knew that this was the location for the styled shoot. There were photo opportunities at every corner! Have a look at some of our favourites from the session and check out the profiles of all the vendors involved in this shoot.
After we photographed Calvin and Queenie’s New Zealand wedding, they came back to KL to have their dinner reception at the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur. I always love the view of the twin towers from the sky lobby… it looks so majestic the moment you exit the lifts and enter the lobby. We were also blown away by the beautiful decorations at their wedding dinner. Long dinner tables are really unconventional for Chinese Malaysian weddings, but it seems to be the trend nowadays. If you are looking for a planner to help you coordinate all of these details while you are overseas, check out Mint Events & Soirées who were the planners for this wedding.
Christian and Sindee first met in Vienna years ago when she was a student there. After being together for 15 years (which is amazing on it’s own), they flew back to Malaysia in 2016 for their wedding. For both the tea ceremony and the evening reception they wanted to have simple, elegant and fresh décor. They had an oriental touch with Chinese elements, such as lanterns, the double happiness stand, and local flowers which matched very well with the 1930s chinese jazz music the band was playing. The best part of the evening was their grand entrance with a lion dance performance!
Personally, I love seeing a blend of different cultures coming together like this. It tickles me to see all these ‘mat salleh‘ in our local terms (or rather, foreigners) playing fun games and eating chicken feet to get to the bride. You can’t tell from these photos, but Chris was suffering from bad food poisoning the morning of the wedding. He was such a trooper, and didn’t allow the tummy aches from robbing his joy! It was a lovely day filled with wonderful moments and we are so glad to be part of this celebration.
Yohei, Fumiko and their two adorable children Shotaro and Shinjiro moved to Kuala Lumpur for work this year and wanted some casual portraits to remember this milestone in their life. Especially since Shinjiro was turning one at the time of the shoot! They feel it is such a great opportunity to experience different cultures and meet new people as a family. We’re glad to be able to document snippets of their life here in KL. It was a pleasure meeting you!
James and Alexia first got to know about us through a friend’s Sikh and Hindu wedding that we photographed in 2012. James had moved to KL from Perth, Australia to work; whereas Alexia relocated from the US to Malaysia for work as well, with the intention of having fun along the way, seeing a bit of Asia for a year…but definitely not meeting boys! It was fate, however that brought them together to the same office in Kuala Lumpur.
The friendship soon evolved to something more and then 3 years later, James proposed! They are having a civil ceremony in Perth in December 2014 and a Christian ceremony close to Alexia’s Honduras home at Antigua Guatemala amongst colonial ruins. (Which sounds absolutely heavenly! By the way, we’d loveeee to travel to Guatemala to shoot a wedding! Hint hint!)
Enjoy these set of pre-wedding images taken by Jamie and Diane.
Love the personal touch with this blanket from Guatemala!
