Happy { wedding congratulations video from bridesmaid }

Summary : It was a rather rushed production but gladly we managed to deliver this video from a group of bridesmaid to their closest friend on her wedding day in Australia.

 

 

Carol + Tuomas { Church wedding day }

Story : It’s 12,000 km apart between Malaysia and Finland , and it’s 9,000 km apart of India and Finland, but both of my client Carol (Malaysia) and Tuomas (Finland) are both standing in front of the altar today giving their wedding vows to start a family of their own, a new chapter of them together. The magic of how fate works to have two person meet, fall in love, marry and start a family never failed to amazes me, perhaps only the Almighty knows how it works.

 

Joy Lee + Edwin Cheang { Actual wedding day }

Summary: One high school mates reunion dinner, which was long overdue for 20 years since our graduation, kept us busy this past 2 years keeping in touch with one another and now to cover one of my high school mates of her big wedding day. Throughout the day, I felt not just photographer but more of an important friend to her and making sure all of the beautiful details of this very special day of hers are all exquisitely fine captured. The pressure felt on my shoulder definitely more than the weight of both my cameras but all in a good way and a definitely meaningful portfolio to our work !

Alvin + Ries Emery {Actual wedding day}

Summary: I’ve known Emery through badminton games, although I’ve only joined them on the badminton games for couple months but we still keep in contact and remain as friends. She is truly a kind friend to those around her and I truly appreciate her sincerity in her advices to my photography business which means a lot to me. I was upmost happiest man on earth aside from the groom she’s married to when I was asked to be her official photographer for her wedding.  I’ve to admit I was a little under pressure with her given background of ex-wedding bridal business and I knew she’s very detail when comes to her expectations of her wedding photos. It was one of the most memorable wedding day I’ve participated and simply one of the most close to my heart seeing a good friend of mine starting a new chapter of her life with her love ones.

Wendy + Melvin {Bride dinner @ Bukit Mertajam}

 

Summary: Have you ever imagine how it will be like if were to host your own wedding dinner at your own school hall? That’s where my client & friend (bride) chose for her wedding dinner venue. I personally think it’s sweet experience. The thing about small town’s wedding dinner  (actually it’s not small, over 60 tables) is always its people with the dinner environment. People there actually exchanging conversations with one another instead of busying staring at their phone & gadgets. Children ran around as they should be. What surprises me on that night or should I say in a Chinese wedding dinner is that there’s actually a dancing floor for everyone. I’ve seen the dance rehearsal from the bride’s parents (members of dancing academy, how cool is that!) and their efforts paid off ! They put up a splendid performance on the dance floor. It is all party after that : )

p.s. I am so looking forward to my over 2o years good buddy Melvin’s actual wedding day & dinner this coming weekend : )

A LOOK BACK IN 2012 & LOOKING FORWARD IN 2013

2012 on a personal level was truly full of learning & blessing in life & work.

We are blessed to have an amazing journey with beautiful weddings & family portrait throughout the year. On a personal level, I felt overwhelmed with all the love I’ve able to witnessed via my clients and honoured being able to include my presence at their special moments of their life.

It’s the beginning of a new year and don’t I have many plans to look forward including my new studio in early February. I’m truly excited to share this joy with all of you.

Here’s a look back to some of the images in 2012 I’ve captured :

Shairah + Amar Aziz {Solemnization}

Summary: 10.11.2012 Meet Shairah & Amar Aziz, the most daring couple up to date I’ve ever met. They are experts in skydiving, paragliding, scuba diving…etc. They would jump off the plane at over 10,00 feet high with pleasure and parachute of course. I knew Amar Aziz from one of my photography class and it was an honour when he asked me to shoot his wedding. It was my first experience shooting a Malay wedding and I am grateful to their patience guiding me through the details of a Malay wedding, I’ve learned a lot and fell in love with it : )

Let me share with you what I’ve learned:

Akad Nikah (marriage contract), which is the legal and religious part of the wedding. The groom signs the marriage contract and agrees to provide the bride with a mas kahwin (mahar,literally ‘marriage gold’ in form of money or goods or anything as requested by the bride). The mas khawin is a symbol to show that the men is willing and are prepared to build a family with the lady he chose to get married to.

The couple’s hands are dyed with henna during the berinai besar (great henna-ing) ceremony where the bride’s hair is also trimmed, eyebrows shaped and make-up applied by Mak Andam. Then the bride puts on her tudung (hijab or headscarf) to cover their hair and a selendang, or embroidered and beaded shawl over that. A crown is also placed on top of the shawl and the bride is ready for the Bersanding ceremony.

Bersanding (enthronement) begins with the groom’s march towards the bride’s home with friends, relatives, musicians and people waving bungamanggar (palm blossom). The main part of the bersanding involves the seating of the bridal couple on a dais and sprinkling them with yellow rice and scented water by family members, relatives and guests as a sign of blessing. Each guest will receive a Bunga Telur (egg flower), as a sign of fertility.

The couple are considered royalty for the day, where various royal customs are performed for them, including musicians playing court music a display of pencak silat.

Once again, congratulations to them !
