Kyle & Kelly

3 years ago, we had the privilege to document Lincoln and Lixia's wedding. Fast forward to today, we were honoured to witness and cover Lincoln's sister, Kelly's big day. 

Though Kyle the groom is from the United States, he and his spontaneous family and friends experienced what most Asian guys go through on their wedding day - gatecrashing. 

Here, they took on challenges like consuming wasabi, bursting balloons with robustness using body parts, shaking sticky notes off their bodies and guessing who's behind the half-raised curtains. The penalty imposed for each incomplete challenge was push-ups. Kyle sang a mandarin song, 月亮代表我的心 by Teresa Teng, before making his way up to the bride's room. It was such a heartwarming scene!

Though Kyle and Kelly were already officially married in the United States, they chose to do it again in Singapore, in the 175-year-old neoclassical building, Chijmes. 

Their uncle, James, was the justice of the peace. Kyle and Kelly's friends gave heartfelt speeches about the couple that lovely night. The lovebirds did the first dance which brought forth jubilant cheers and tears.

Wishing this fantastic pair a lifetime of adventure, love and happiness!

P.S: We tried using film camera to capture their wedding as well. We like to experiment, you see. Enjoy the images!

Hon + Elaine

Hon, a man of few words but also spontaneous at times. You will see that later in the images. (And yes, Hon is the groom's name and that is how we address him).

Elaine, a lady who is energized by being around other people and also have a very sentimental family. When they are together, they gel so well.

Hon actually wanted to just pay the bridesmaids for the penalty fee of the gatecrashing games because him and his groomsmen are too mature (in age) for the silly and crazy games. Nevertheless, they participated in the games as they had no other choice.

Though their wedding was sweet and simple, they chose a clubbing song and danced in for the 2nd march-in at Singapore Marriot Tang Plaza Hotel! They were very thoughtful for their guests and especially their close friends such that after the wedding, they even hired a coach to fetch their friends to another location for an intimate after-party.

Julian + Eileen

Julian first laid his eyes on her since Eileen joined the Clinical Laboratory in KK Hospital. And that was about 5 years ago. What Eileen admires most about Julian is that he constantly cooks for her and her family. Not only that, Eileen's family has already taken Julian as if he is their own son. And now, it has become a reality.

During the wee hours of the morning, Eileen already had her make up done while her bridesmaids are busy preparing the "breakfast" for the groom and his groomsmen. When it came down to it, the groomsmen were pretty spontaneous and also predicted that there was bound to be a dance involving the latest online video sensation, PPAP (Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen), hence, they came prepared with sunglasses just for that.

Though their schedule was tight and hectic, everything seemed to fall in place and they had a beautiful luncheon at the Sheraton Towers.

Ken + Lishan

We shot their wedding portraiture in Australia and from there, we learnt of Ken and Lishan's love story during their overseas studies in Brisbane, University of Queensland. However, we couldn't come to a final decision on what we should capture for their video as we also knew that they were very close to their friends. Therefore, we met up the bridesmaids and groomsmen which also happened to be their closest friends. What's more, all of them knew each other and some of them are even friends in Australia.

Sure enough, talking to them altered our perspective on how we would like to film their wedding. Without further explanation, let's let the video do the talking instead.

And here are the photographs
