Wedding Video Highlight: Kingston & Delia

This was our first wedding for 2018, shot on the 1st of Jan! We were glad to have met Kingston and Delia, both very personable and friendly towards us as a team. The both of them live in Melbourne but came back to Malaysia for their wedding. We filmed their Chinese tea ceremony and banquet at the Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa. The games were pretty hilarious, with lots of great moves from the guys!

Here’s the story of how they met:

Delia: Kingston and I met in high school but it wasn’t until the last 2 years of high school that we finally got to know each other. This was probably because our paths finally crossed when he was appointed a prefect in the last 2 years. It was at a prefect’s camp at the beginning of the year that we started talking to each other as we were put in the same group. I remember thinking what a nice and funny person he was, always joking and making me laugh. Conversations were pretty superficial at that stage, but the unusual thing about it was the way he made me smile all the time and made me feel exceptionally comfortable around him. One day after camp, we were both put on prefect duty at the back of our school canteen.  I remember that being the first time we got to talk to each other- just the 2 of us. I felt as if we had known each other for years. I think I told him my life story that day! Clearly we were not very good prefects.. we weren’t even paying attention to our duties the whole time! Since then, we would talk almost every single day.

Kingston: We became best friends. We would hang out every morning on roll call, see each other on breaks and the funny thing is, I always know that she’s looking at me when we happened to be nearby on our prefect duties. She laughs at most of my jokes (which doesn’t happen with a lot of people) and I always (and still do) get that warm fuzzy feeling when we are together.

Delia: Towards the end of college, it was time to decide what we wanted to study in University and where. Many of our friends had either already gone or were preparing to go overseas to complete tertiary studies. This was the time when I started to think about my future seriously and who the most important people in my life were. It was during this time in 2006 when I realised just how much I cannot imagine not having Kingston in my life. It really put things in perspective for me and I guess Kingston felt the same way too. So August 1st 2006, that’s when we decided to take our relationship further.

It was also the time I started Medical School in IMU and Kingston started studying Chemical Engineering at Monash. We spent the first 2 and half years together in this relationship and it was bliss. Beginning 2009, Kingston moved to Melbourne to continue his studies there and our long-distance relationship began. It was one of the hardest things I’ve had to go through and 6 months later, I then moved to Southampton, UK to continue my medical degree. The hardest part about being apart was, to me, meeting him once a year for no longer than 2 weeks and having to count down the days before we had to part again.

Kingston: Spending time together in that short stint was amazing. We appreciated every single ticking second in each other’s company and we would go on dates like how we used to when we were younger. Of course beautiful moments like those were never enough- and the reality of the situation would always set in towards the end of our holidays together. The hardest part is having to say goodbye every single time, and knowing that by sunrise the next day one of us would be leaving for another full year. These were extremely difficult moments for us, but we both know that they made us stronger individually. Although this phase of the relationship is the most difficult and challenging one, it made us grew not only as a person, but together as a couple.

Finally, Delia completed her stint in the UK in 2014 and made her move to Melbourne. I still remember waiting for her at the airport, full of excitement and happiness, knowing that we won’t have to endure the hardships of long distance relationship anymore. Fast forward to today, it still amazes me that we are still together in this 10+ years of relationship and have persisted so much in life. I always knew that I wanted to marry Delia and with us finally being together, I decided to propose at the end of 2016.

Delia: I waited for a long time! It was an amazing, romantic and well-planned proposal with the help of all our family and our friends. Kingston decided to put me on a treasure hunt for a whole day. My two best friends and one of his best friends drove me all around KL to pick up clues to the next stop from his friends who were all stationed at our most memorable ‘spots’ in the last 10 years. It was very nostalgic for me going back to these spots where memories were created and that meant so much to us like our high school, our favourite place to eat, my old house before my parents moved away… I was in tears most of the time. We ended up in Tamarind Springs where we spent our first 3 years celebrating our anniversaries, and he finally got down on one knee in front of our family and friends. That was truly one of the best days of my life.

Wedding Video Highlight, Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe: Alex & Lenny

We filmed Alex & Lenny’s #SagoGulaMelakaWedding at the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe and Crystal Crown Hotel Petaling Jaya recently. We loved how it was full of laughter, made even more colourful by their fun friends who performed at the wedding. There were heartfelt moments when Lenny’s mom teared as she walked her down the aisle at the church. We felt truly honoured to be part of this beautiful occasion.

Alex & Lenny’s Story

It all started in 2010. At a fitness outfit called Original Bootcamp Malaysia (OBC). Training was at 5.45am, 3 times a week at Padang Astaka. Sometimes after the training, the recruits as they were called, often hung out for breakfast and also went on hikes together at various locations within the Klang Valley. It was through this activities that Alex and Lenny became good friends.

Interestingly, they were also ‘technically’ colleagues. Alex worked at BMW Malaysia based in Cyberjaya while Lenny worked at BMW Financial Services Malaysia. So they often met when there were company events. Then one day in October 2012, Lenny got offered a position at BMW Financial Services Australia, based in Melbourne. Alex was devastated – and he didn’t know why. It then clicked that he’d miss her more than he would miss a good friend who got a transfer overseas.

Lenny was scheduled leave and start her new role in Melbourne on 16 December 2012 (a significant date since it was also the date of the wedding). So Lenny and Alex increased the frequency of their OBC activities, hiking excursions and happy hour sessions. There was just something there and they just wanted to make the most out of their remaining time together.

As the days came closer towards Lenny’s departure, Lenny and Alex grew closer too (movie dates and teddy bears involved). And then the day of Lenny’s departure came, and despite the impending separation, they finally spoke to each other about being together and…that was the conversation that sealed it in for them.

Embarking on a long distance relationship (LDR) is no easy feat. But they survived. In August 2016, Alex made the move to Australia and planned to pop the proposal question at the Coldplay concert on 9 December 2016.  The stage was ‘literally’ now set. After weeks of memorising the order of the setlist, Alex picked ‘Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall’ to be the song where he pops the question. The song came. She said yes! Everything after was Magic. An Amazing Day it was with a Sky Full of Stars. Again, literally.

Wedding Video Highlight: Mohd Faez & An-Nuura

Interestingly, we got to know Mohd Faez’ mother, Tengku Puteri Zahariah through one of our photographers, Jennifer who sometimes moonlights as an Uber driver. We were hired as Tengku’s personal videography team for the dinner reception at Sime Darby Convention Centre. She was crucial in planning the entire wedding dinner reception, and naturally, wanted everything captured meticulously. The team met the couple on the wedding day itself and we’re pleased to be part of such a beautiful occasion.

Unicorn Galaxy Wedding Dessert Themed Styled Shoot

The studio was abuzz with excitement over a styled shoot we were doing in collaboration with The Wedding Scoop, Shaun Teo Creations and Marble & Co. It was exciting because this was a Unicorn Galaxy – Themed Wedding Dessert Table styled shoot!

When the unicorn cake was brought out, everyone let out “oohs” and “ahhs” in unison. It was so pretty! And the cupcakes, cake pops, chocolates and pudding cups were equally as mesmerizing. The folks from Marble & Co went to work with laying out the lavish dessert table with all the goodies while we snapped away and videoed the whole process.

Nobody could bring themselves to cut into the unicorn cake but the honour went to the man who made the masterpiece, Shaun. We can testify that the cake tasted as good as it looked! It was such a fun session which was brought together by The Wedding Scoop, and we think a dessert table like this at your wedding would look stunning!

Wedding Video Highlight: Ming Han & Su Yen

Ming Han, one of the Mings behind Malaysia’s famous YouTube channel, The Ming Thing is now hitched (check out #mingsubingsu)! This is one of our most emotional weddings ever. There were so many tears shed at this wedding, it made us feel like crying too! Interestingly, Su Yen used to be an intern at Integricity years ago… she wasn’t involved in photography or video, but she was doing graphic design for the digital team. Su Yen, as a talented make up artist in the industry has also worked together with us on a few projects. And funnily, a few months ago, I met Ming Han for the first time when they rented our house for a Ming Thing shoot. So we are glad to be part of their amazing wedding day.

Su Yen met Ming Han in church but their communication with each other was limited to mostly work-related stuff. They were both not each other’s “type” but God had other plans in store for them! It wasn’t until they found comfort in each other while going through rough patches that they realised there could still be hope and love with the right person.

Working in the entertainment industry which is so people-oriented has it challenges. Ming Han credits Su Yen for his ability to be the best he can be because of Su Yen’s living example of care, patience and grace, which has rubbed off on him too. It is endearing to hear them speak of each other because it is filled with so much love and respect. Congratulations, Ming Han & Su Yen… the journey ahead is going to be really beautiful yet filled with challenges. Ultimately, God is the one who will hold your hands as you walk along this path together. Lots of love from all of us.
