It's the theme Jocelyn & Joe wanted for this wedding held at Penang on last Saturday. Both Jocelyn & Joe met by chance at Jakarta and it's one of the precious examples on earth that love at first sight transformed into husband and wife. The reception was held at the Arshak Suite of E&O hotel, having only intimate family members and friends to celebrate this very special day. This wedding has been a very special one to me personally especially the very moving and heart felt speeches one after another, they made my eyes teary on the spot and even when I'm culling the shots to be posted here this afternoon. All these are made possible by Jocelyn and Joe because they led-and-let me to be part of their special day. I'm really glad that I'm part of their wedding and the energetic crowd and children who had fun at the dance floor are simply amazing!
Well, I think I'm not really good in telling stories in English but I'll try to improve! Jocelyn, Joe, if you are reading this, I wanted to thank both of you here for having faith in me for capturing your special day at Penang. I was emotionally involved and had every minute of fun even that I'm shooting. :D Have a safe trip back!
Jocelyn has been very very kind. She get out from her chair like every 10 minutes in the middle of the makeup session and keep on digging every little thing she could thought of to let me shoot cause she fear that I might feel bored! She even told Joe to brush the ring so that I could have a shiny one. She's a lovely bride every photographer would love! :D
And there I have it. Brand new looking rings for details shot! :p
See the yellow 'thingy'? It's a garter for the night's garter ceremony! Which is my first time shooting it.
Isn't that all the details lovely? Jocelyn is the master mind for them.
Under the witness of the Goddess of Mercy, Joe has thoughtfully proposed to Jocelyn few years back at Kek Lok Si, Penang.
I love this cake. They are so 'theme based' and lovely. Most important of all, it's edible! ;p
Jocelyn was explaining to the guests why there's a saying in the Hokkien language to tell the elderly to dry their tea cup during the tea ceremony. Something like this, 'teh lim da da, sin niao ghia sai meh ni zhoh ba ba ma ma.' LOL. If you're not a Chinese speaking person, you might need a translator.
Family and friends, from as far as the US, India, Indonesia, and Scotland all in one place for one special occasion.
