Dinner Reception: Jaya Palace Restaurant

Two days before their wedding, I spoke to Elsa, and she told me, “I am not sure whether we are going to have a tea ceremony in the evening or morning with my relatives… let’s play by ear and see what happens” That’s how laidback Mak & Elsa are when it came to planning their wedding. She told me that her friends fretted more than she did over the wedding! Despite all that fretting, things went well for Mak & Elsa, and their wedding day breezed along smoothly.

This was my first time at Balakong, and I am glad I didn’t get lost finding Elsa’s place! Thank God for google maps! But I think it is time for me to invest in a GPS.

Together with my team, we came up with this same day slideshow that was played that night at Jaya Palace Restaurant. Watch out for the cool ring shot thought up by Mark at the end of the slideshow!

Here are some of my favourite shots from their wedding.

The lace on her gown is just exquisite!

For this shot, Mark had to hold a reflector next to me, not to reflect the light on Mak & Elsa, but to shade them from the sun!

This is kind of how the place looked like:

I didn’t know it when I took this teapot shot, but it seems that teapots were going to be the theme for the day!

Especially at Jaya Palace Restaurant, where they had large pillars filled with cool teapots like these! We were a little worried that we’d knock into these teapots as we squeezed between tables…

This restaurant had really really good food.

Thanks for being so welcoming and for taking care of my team, Mak & Elsa. Oh, and thanks for walking up and down the stairs a couple of times for us to get the ring shot, Elsa!! :)

Eric & Chew Yong

Dinner Reception: Concorde Hotel, Kuala Lumpur
Photographers: Mark Leo & Ian Chew

I had a fantastic time shooting both Eric and Chew Yong’s wedding recently. The two of them met at work (gosh imagine that!) and now they are getting married. Throughout the day, there was never a dull moment as Eric’s friends were so sporting as well as enthusiastic in trying to help Eric get through some of the toughest challenges in the morning. Check out the photos below to see how tough they were.

The girls started the morning preparing all of their special “concoction” for the guys.

Meet Chew Yong, doesn’t she look beautiful here?

Eric and his “heng tais” before leaving for Chew Yong’s house. These guys are super dedicated!

One of the tasks, brush your teeth using wasabi as toothpaste! Talk about burning your mouth.

Brushing their teeth wasn’t enough, they even had wasabi put all over one of the “heng tai” where the rest of the guys had to lick it off.

Next task, bursting the balloon whilst eating a banana off the other guy. Seriously, the guys just did all of this without complaining and did it with gusto!

The guys even had a special shirt made for the wedding.

After leaving Chew Yong’s place, we headed over to their new home for a couple more shots.

I love the wallpapers in their new place, it looks so classy and elegant. They really have an eye for interior designing.

A big thanks goes to Ian Chew who helped me with the wedding throughout the day.

Albert & Michelle, Garden Wedding at Cyberview Lodge, Part2

In any outdoor wedding, there is some sort of anxiety about how the weather will turn out. Will it rain? Will it be too hot? Will there be a breeze? But for Albert & Michelle’s wedding, it was just… perfect. The sun was up, but it wasn’t scorching. Makes for lovely light!


The theme was purple, white and silver.


I love the way these rose petals sat in Albert & Michelle’s wedding invite.




Albert sang as Michelle walked down the aisle. So lovely!

Albert & Michelle, Garden wedding at Cyberview Lodge

Michelle probably planned her wedding years ago. While some couples are uncertain about where to start looking for reliable vendors, Michelle knows them all. And this is because she has planned many other weddings before. No, she’s not married multiple times – Michelle is one of the wedding planners in my church and she has helped countless couples in their wedding preparations.

She knew where to go for the best bargains, where to purchase unique wedding favours, and also scouted all the cool locations in town.

And so, there are lots of yummy details that went into their wedding. Photos by Grace & Ian Chong.


Lovely gown by That Special Occasion.





The cool heng tais…


The things they had to do!! Since Albert & Michelle are close friends of ours, my poor husband Alex had to be one of the heng tais as well! (he’s the one of the right)


After the tea ceremony, we proceeded to a friend’s home to take some photos in their home.


And what a lovely home it is!!

Amy + Stu, The Andaman, Langkawi, Part 2

After the short and sweet ceremony, we took some portraits on the beach. Having sunset shots are great, but timing is so crucial! We only had about 15-20 minutes of light before it quickly faded away.

I love umbrellas. I can now safely say that I have a collection of wedding + umbrella photos. Oh, and I also love veils, especially long ones.

I love the blue theme for the wedding deco, and how it’s so tastefully done! Absolutely love the leaves with the names written on it. Other plus points: Yummy chocs in jars, ready for guests to pick!
