I don’t blog about the same couple twice, but when I do, the couple is AMAZEBALLS.
Those who follow my blog (loyal bunch of folks you are, a toast to all of you if you do!) might recognise Adin and Shermaine, with whom I did a casual pre-wedding shoot a few months prior to their wedding day. I must admit that having spent time photographing them before their wedding day made light work of the actual day coverage. They were more comfortable around me (or maybe it’s just the other way round :p) and the photos really shined through with their emotions and gratitude towards their family and friends, which was the highlight for me. I call it the ‘once bitten, twice not shy’ syndrome – sooner or later the couple will get used to my crazy antics!
I love it how Adin and Shermaine, other than having really non-mainstream names, chose a fabulously unique venue for their solemnization ceremony, the Art House. I love how the colonial features of the building, coupled with the gorgeous decoration and flowers done by Fiona Treadwell, brought out the essence of how a wedding should be like – not overly done, simple, and full of character. Plus it’s air conditioned. Who doesn’t love air condition while playing gate crash games? Haha…
While their ROM was more of an intimate affair in the close quarters of the Art House, their wedding banquet was at the magnificent Fullerton Hotel. Although the venue had became a comparatively grander location than their ROM, it was by no means short on emotions. Great speeches, laughter rousing at every corner, even a song by their parents, there’s really nothing more that a couple can ask for a wedding day. A few months had passed since their wedding but my mind is still reeling from the memories of that day.
I hope all of you enjoy the wedding photos as much as I did capturing them, and for Adin and Shermaine who happen to be reading this, I would like to wish you the very best in this new chapter in life. Cheers!
