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.

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!

Amy + Stu, The Andaman, Langkawi, Part 1

They met in Canberra years ago, while they were doing their masters. After years of traveling, and time apart, they are now living in Malaysia. Stu works for the Australian embassy, and Amy works with an NGO dealing with families. The moment I met them, I could feel an instant warmth radiating from their direction. It’s hard not to like them.

From various trips to Langkawi, 2 things stands out. The heat. And great sunsets. The other guys shooting with me (Mark, Kee Sitt and Nigel) were downing liquids through out the wedding. And I don’t mean alcohol. The Andaman is a really beautiful resort. Look at the view from Amy’s room!

Isn’t she stunning?

I think these Malaysian ‘satay’ fans are a great idea!

I took so many shots of the rings, I can’t decide which are my favourite.

Pierre & Lay See, Holiday Inn, Melaka

One week prior to Pierre & Lay See’s actual wedding day, they had another grand dinner. This time, it was held at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Malacca. The theme: Chinese. I absolutely love the thought that went into every little detail of the wedding. Definitely one of the best decorated dinner halls I have ever seen! Don’t you agree with me?

Pink was the colour theme of the night. Lay See had 3 lovely dresses to wear, just that night itself!
