Wedding Video Highlight: Shri & Hui Ru

Hui Ru loves cats, nasi lemak, chocolate, coffee & sleeping. She aims to maintain a minimalist lifestyle with little distractions & things in her life, dreaming of reaching financial freedom in a few years. Shri is passionate in teaching young people on how to reach their best and happiest version of themselves. On weekends, they enjoy simple things in life like having brunch together and playing with Shri’s nephew.

Shri and Hui Ru celebrated their marriage at Ti Chen, The Saujana Hotel. It was lovely to see elements of their cultures coming together in unity and even more so, to see the joy that friends, family, and the couple had on their faces throughout the day. Their view of life resonates with us too!

“We see each other as soulmates. Before we met each other we were caught up with work & serving our families & the community. But the first time we paused and took time to get to know each other , we realized what true happiness is.” 

Here’s the wedding video highlight we did for them. Thank you for having us Shri and Hui Ru! It was a special day indeed.

Portraits at K’Seena House: Joseph & Jamie

I have been meaning to write this post for quite a number of months! Jamie, our team’s talented photographer finally said “I do” to the man of her dreams, Joseph. It was a meaningful wedding for me because I love these 2 people very much as we gotten quite close through the years. Joseph was our housemate for quite a long time until the wedding, and our children loved his playful nature. It was really an honour to be asked to photograph their portraits after the wedding ceremony ended. After the ceremony ended, the heavens opened and there were showers of blessing at the venue (actually, it felt like a storm) but thankfully, the rain stopped for us to take some these images before sunset.

K’Seena House is a very pretty place for pictures, and it was my first time there. I loved how Joseph’s corsage was replaced with a rope, since the both of them are avid rock climbers! What a joy it was for us to witness Joseph and Jamie’s wedding!

Wedding at The Club Saujana: En Tzer & Krystle

People say that university life is one of the most memorable times of our lives. It’s true especially if you are living away from your home country, meeting lots of new friends in an environment that promises lots of adventure. For En Tzer and Krystle, it was Melbourne Trinity College that brought them together. Staying in the same boarding house, going for house parties, buying wine and shopping for ‘shot glasses’ were all part of the experience that brought them together. Soon, 3 years passed and they both ended back home in Malaysia.

En Tzer and Krystle’s wedding happened last year and we thought it’s still a great one to share with you! Here’s some of our favourite images from the day, that started off at The Club, Saujana and ended at TPC KL.

Church wedding at The Collective: Frankie & Shiyou

Shiyou

In November 2016, I was with two of my girlfriends in KL, Denise Tan and Jane Seb. Like any other girly conversations, we ended up talking about the kind of husband I was looking for. It was a very casual conversation, full of jokes and laughters. I gave Jane my list. She glanced at it and said… “You’ve got to meet Frankie!! This list is Frankie!” Who is Frankie? I was not interested and I did not want to pursue it further.

Frankie

Jane told me about this Singaporean girl I had to meet. All I said was… “another finance person? I’m not interested.” I don’t want to be with another accounting person.

Shiyou

In January 2017, at the Kingdomcity Team Advance in KL, we met for the first time and were coerced into saying hi to each other. It was a very awkward situation as Andre Dique (our spiritual father/mentor/boss/friend) tried to get us to talk. There was nothing more than a awkward hi. I found out he was going to be the Kingdomcity KL Business Manager, so perhaps we would need to have some form of communication throughout the year. After all, I was taking care of Kingdomcity Singapore’s finances then.

In May 2017, I went to KL for a KPMG audit conference. Derwin decided to organise dinner with me, together with Sean Chang and Frankie. I said sure, cause I mean, what else was there to do at night? Frankie and I had our first real “hang out” then. I thought he was arrogant and he thought I was snobbish. I was thinking “how can Andre think that I would ever want to date a man like this?” So that was it. We never spoke again. Continue Reading

Wedding at Wesley Methodist Church, Seremban: Jonathan & Lyn Yen



On the day of Jonathan and Lyn Yen’s wedding, family and friends gathered in Seremban… all ready to dance right into Lyn’s family home and pick her up for church. Jonathan’s heng tai entourage consisted mostly of his female friends, and they were totally into the role… with their matching #sokhooyetsowong t-shirts, cool sunglasses and tough attitude. On the other hand, Lyn’s bridesmaids were in beautiful two toned blue dresses. Lyn’s gorgeous wedding gown was designed by one of our previous brides, Katrina who was totally emotional seeing Lyn in it!

There were a lot of interesting ‘drama’ happening on this wedding day… from Jon innocently leaving the bridal bouquet in the freezer before the wedding day, to discovering a broken button on his tux, to someone accidentally taking one of the groomsmen’s shoes leaving him stranded just before church…thank God there were solutions to everything!

Most importantly, thanks to Lyn’s grandmother and brother, they managed to find a spare button, sewed it onto Jon’s tux and rescued the day. In church, Jon was tearing as Lyn walked down the aisle… he was just so overcome with emotion…though Lyn and his friends broke out in laughter as a response to that. I just felt, “Aaw… this is really one soft, tender hearted man, just like a giant teddy bear!”

We had a great time in Seremban that day, and then also 2 weeks later in Sofitel, KL for the 2nd half of their wedding. If you would like to read more of their story and view their pre-wedding photos, please click here.
