Pre-Wedding at Sekeping Serendah: Zeen & Janet

Zeen (Also known as groom)
Definition: Uncle-ish. Traditional. Quiet. Detail oriented. Organized. Smart. Superboy. Weirdo. Worries about being a weirdo. Shy. Not sure of the differences between onions and spring onions.

Janet (Also known as bride)
Definition: A bit out of this world. Has a wild imagination. Crafty. Slow. Stubborn. Loveable. Laughs a lot. Lazy. Messy. Optimistic. Childish. Loves pretty things. Loves quirky things. Very sticky with her groom (like glue).

20150715_PREWEDDING_ZEEN_JANET_269Little Miss Quirky Janet introduced herself as an alien from Mars. That certainly caught Zeen’s attention at a friend’s birthday party. He thought she was silly and pretty much a cute girl, very childlike and happy. Somehow, these two hit it off, and it was as if the puzzle pieces just fit. Their conversations started off one way, but then the other could just complete it easily. Hours of conversations never bored them. The connection they share is so cute, their friends say they are like little children.

Somehow, their differences made up for each other’s lack, and that’s how the puzzle fit together. When they encounter problems, they never ceased communicating, and that was what brought them even closer together. Faith, hope and love were the key phrases that they hung on to, especially during the 2 years of long distance relationship when one was in UK and the other in KL.

And so, one day, Zeen decided he needed to spend the rest of his life with Janet. He proposed and their entire life’s history changed from that moment on!

Pre-Wedding at Sekeping Serendah: Jimmy & Rachel

20140627_PRE_WEDDING_JIMMY_RACHEL_139Jimmy and Rachel first met while they were both working in the same hospital. She was a freshy, only 5 months into the job. Jimmy was the medical officer in charge of the infectious disease ward at the time. Her first impression of him was that, ‘He surely talks a lot and comes across as being quite bossy!’ Naturally, they didn’t really hit it off then and Rachel was mostly preoccupied with surviving through working in that particular ward. It was only a year later when their paths crossed again. By that time, they were both in different departments.

It was a tragedy that brought them together eventually… a tragic Genting car crash that happened one day.

Rachel had to accompany one of the patients who was in critical condition for an MRI scan in the radiology unit while Jimmy was the doctor in charge of doing the scan at the time. The scan took more than an hour to complete, and while waiting for it to be completed, they had some free time to talk and sort of hit it off after that. Over that one hour, Rachel got a glimpse into a different side of Jimmy which she never noticed before. Her heart eventually softened towards him, and she thought, he is actually quite charming and easy to talk to.

Soon, another unexpected encounter in the hospital brought them together again. They started messaging each other and then went out for a movie date a few weeks later.

Jimmy and Rachel are total opposites in terms of character. Jimmy is a very meticulous person and very detail orientated; Perhaps that’s one of the reasons he is attracted to the radiology field while Rachel is more spontaneous and usually goes with flow. It is their differing personalities that make this relationship blend well. They just complement each other so well! Rachel can definitely attest to the fact that Jimmy has certainly helped her be a more organized person!

They have been in a long distance relationship for almost 2 years now since Rachel had to move away from KL for work. Despite the challenges of frequent traveling and their busy work schedule, being in this long distance relationship has taught them to be more thankful and appreciative for the simple and little things they are able to do together like having a quiet dinner or maybe just buying groceries together.

Rachel says, Looking back at how we met, I realized it was really fate that brought us together as I was actually reluctant to accompany the patient to the radiology department during that fateful day and had wanted to switch with another friend.

What a way to get together! Congratulations, both of you!

Alright, here’s the behind the scenes video as promised! Do leave us a comment or two about what you think because we LOVE to hear from you!

Joe & Nicole at Sekeping Serendah

Photographer: Grace
Hair & Make Up: Michelle Touche
Location: Sekeping Serendah, Selangor
Wedding Gown: Pretty in White

It rained that day but stopped just as we were about to start our shoot. I’ve always wanted to visit Sekeping Serendah but the opportunity never materialized until Joe & Nicole’s shoot. Joe & Nicole live in Australia and we only communicated via emails prior to the shoot. When I met them for the first time in Pretty in White a few days before our shoot, Nicole told me, “Grace, I have flabby arms and we always fight. A lot.” So, armed with this knowledge, I thought of ways to hide flaws, highlight strengths and bring out their personality. (But frankly, Nicole, I don’t think you have flabby arms at ALL!)

For this shoot, we did something different – we took some behind the scenes footage and Weiming edited it into a fun video which we will post by tomorrow.

For now, have a look at some featured images…
