Aaron & Chrystin

Weddings

It’s been more than five months since Aaron and Chrystin’s church ceremony. Trust me when I say that I have been meaning to blog this memorable wedding since the day I shot it.

Not because of the personal touches that they had, the amazing details or even the fact that they’re an amazingly good looking couple to shoot. But because they really celebrated their nuptials, with family members and close friends. I just kept on putting it off cos I wanted to leave this for my new blog (which I was supposed to have completed within the first quarter of this year -____-” but that is another story for another post…). But I couldn’t wait any longer! Which might be a good thing too :p

Their wedding celebration was a day of much joy and laughter as the morning started with a boisterous ‘chip san leong’, an intimate tea ceremony followed by a meaningful church solemnisation. You could tell that Aaron and Chrystin were much loved by their church community as almost everyone partook in the wedding preparations and helped out with the proceedings of the day. I was actually in awe of the efforts which were put in to personalise the ceremony :)

Aaron and Chrystin, thanks again for sharing the day with me. By now you would’ve settled into a comfortable rhythm of married life, just the beginning of a new journey together, so here’s wishing you many years of wedded bliss ahead! Hope you liked the pictures as much as I enjoyed shooting them for you ;)

Here are some of my favourites from the day…

Felicia & Aravind

Weddings

You know what? I don’t know whether it’s cos I come from a multi-cultural family myself but I totally love shooting multi-cultural weddings. Having a mix of culture celebrating a couple’s union proves to me that love goes beyond your skin color and it shows acceptance despite what your beliefs may be.

So it came as no surprise that I had so much fun shooting Felicia and Aravind’s wedding celebrations nearly 6 months ago (yes, I’m very late with blogging -___-”). I actually met up with them nearly a year prior to their wedding day and I can still recall thinking to myself that hey, this is a couple that I would love to work with. With Aravind’s no-nonsense, event management background and Felicia’s laid back, Sarawakian charm, they balanced each other off like coffee and donuts ;)

Instead of squeezing the whole festivities into a day, Felicia and Aravind actually had 2 celebrations, a month apart, giving them time to ‘recuperate’ and really enjoy themselves for both events. Here are some of my favourite shots from their traditional temple ceremony, church ceremony and also dinner reception in Kuala Lumpur :) More will be shared on Facebook next week!
















Aravind & Felicia, seriously, I had a blast shooting your wedding celebrations :) Despite Aravind’s macho exterior and Felicia’s ‘no cheese please’ request :p, it was really sweet to see moments of tenderness between the two of you when you thought no one was looking (gotcha!). Thank you again for the pleasure of letting me celebrate with you two and here’s to much love and laughter in the years ahead for you both :)

    I am always looking at your blog to get some idea of taking pictures, especially on composition. This is my first comment after few years looking at your blog. Nice job Anna!

  2. Summer says:

    Well put, sir, well put. I’ll cernaitly make note of that.



Divya & Gokulan

Weddings

Had the pleasure of covering Divya and Gokulan’s temple ceremony back in December together with Ndrew and I must say, having such an awesome couple to work with definitely made my day. Despite the rain prior to the event and the large number of guests that they had to attend to, Divya and Gokulan were absolute troopers and enjoyed the experience throughout the whole night.

Divya and Gokulan, thank you again for having me shoot the festivites and for confirming me without even having met me in the first place. I could’ve had bad breath for all you know. Not that I do of course ;) Hope you two are settling in well in Brisbane! Much love :)



A few of my photographer friends say that I get to work with some of the best looking couples in town. Can’t complain ;)

    We are saving so much money by our DIY pjeorct 1st and foremost. I’ve bought all my milk glass pedestal style vases at Good Will St. Vincent D’Pauls etc I thinks we’ve spent under 30 for all the vases! Our wedding ceremony is on my in-laws to be property in Oregon facing a beautiful green valley so not much needed there. My fiance’s monther has a major green thumb too and is growing a lot of my flowers for me and has tons of foliage around her property so again less cost and more DIY. We’re using flowers that are in bloom for our June 12th wedding Hydrageas Bells of Ireland Goosegoes Walking Peonies and various foliage. The farmer was recommended to us and she is awsome! I’m all about supporting local farmers and the greener the better. We’re using smaller arrangements at our tables and using candles to fill the space along with our bamboo coaster favors in recycled paper box. I bought taller vases for my brides maids to put there bouques in on the head table so we have more than one use for the flowers. My guest will be welcomed to take the center piece as long as they have the secret number that matches the piece at the table too! Less clean up and work for all at the end of a long day.

    Oh I LOVE your book corner .I too need sothmeing like this to store all my books! Sophie Kinsella is currently my FAVE chic lit author and among the non-Shopaholic books, The Twenties Girl is my favourite. I too am eagerly waiting for The Oath of the Vayuputras. My other current fave in Indian mythology/thriller are The Krishna Key (Ashwin Sanghi), Govinda (Krishna Udayashankar) and the Krishna Coriolis series by Ashok Banker. I’m right now midway through Winter of the World (ken Folett) and waiting in line to be read are The Great Indian Novel (Shashi Tharoor), The Rozabal Line (Ashwin Sanghi) and March of the Aryans (Bhagwan S. Gidwani). I feel I’ve neglected Indian authors for too long so I guess im trying to make up now
