In the beginning, all this lovely couple had in their heads were a simple wedding with a modest reception at The Bankers Club. During our first meet up, they were still considering about having the morning pick-up bride session. A few months later, Jordan dutifully came with his geng, went through all trials and games set forth for them while Sharon waited patiently in the room. I'm sure the wait was all worthwhile as Jordan made 6 priceless promises to Sharon . Another endless memories.
Wei Ter and Ann is one very loving couple. They are constantly in each other's embrace, hand in hand while walking and we can never miss seeing them showing affection towards each other. Perfect. Naturally, they could pose at ease everytime I'm about to capture their moment. Perfect again. From bride's makeup till the reception, everything was well planned and that's another perfect. Perhaps that's the significant and auspicious meaning of having their wedding on a perfact 10 date as well.
Although I've been involved in many Indian weddings, but each event has it's own differences from others. Normally we'll have the bride and groom's family walking into the hall accompanied by the traditional music band. This time round, Poovan was lead by a peacock lady while Meera walked in gracefully with her sisters, also lead by a group of dancing boys. That's just the beginning. When our Malaysian version of Rajanikant appeared, everyone went gaga
Siew Ping is a beautician and being a part of the beauty industry, she's exposed to many style and trend which was implied in her makeup and hairdo during her wedding day whereby it's kinda unique. It's something like those we normally see in fashion magazine. And because of this, it made me felt like as if I was in a model shooting session The emcee made quite an interesting experiment on that night too. If you've browsed through Hong Keng and Siew Ping's photos, you'll see some pictures showing how they join their finger tips and bend the middle finger inward. Now try separating each finger and you'll find out we can't on the ring finger. Taa-daa..that's why it's the union finger.
Last Chinese New Year Eve, I photographed the wedding of Zira's elder sister Yusof & Hanis and it's just like yesterday as everything is still fresh and vivid in my memory. Their family is exceptionally warm, nice and humorous to the bits..ahaha..We giggled non stop during our free shots session around the kampung area. And now a year later, I photographed Zira's engagement. Zira herself is a photography enthusiast, so it is much easier when we are taking portrait shots with her au naturel posing. Perhaps it's the au naturel of everyone and surrounding there made me felt good to be back for this assignment.
Most of the time, women complains men are too quiet. However, it's totally different with Don and Evelyn. She complained he's too noisy..ahahha.. Perhaps, that's the sparks between them Their actual wedding ceremony and reception was held in Singapore a week before and this was a simple formality of tea ceremony and reception. Though it's simple, but it's a very meaningful day for Don to get to know Evelyn's family better and to pay respect to her relatives.
Eric and Angela is one charming couple. They both have very infectious smile that added instant zest to the photos and definately brightened everyone's mood. On top of that, Eric is a real charmer when comes to singing. His melodic voice has won him many singing competitions, country champion for Great Eastern's singing competition to name one. No doubt he serenaded a few songs on this special day to express his love for Angela. Perhaps that's how Eric caught Angela's attention in the first place
Through Jasmit and Amy's wedding, I had the golden opportunity to witness and captured a different cultured wedding's whole sequence in the span of 5 days in a row. Starting from Henna, Mainyan, Sangeet and last but not least Reception. That's the beauty of staying in Malaysia. Not only are we rich with spices but also culture. See how beautiful this wedding evolved from one ceremony to another. Each unique, each meaningful.
