T&S-M02

The “It” wedding that transpired just this past weekend belongs to Tim and Sabrina.

I felt very privileged Sabrina remembered our studio all these years, and that she trusted our team and our work. She is a gorgeous lady who was not at all a bridezilla, but a very warm personality that you would automatically feel a friendship with. It may be more then a coincidence that we share a mutual friend too. Jason Wong, we must indeed all catch up again!

With Tim, a long time ago when he was at Power 98 I was managing a retail shop and would leave his show on. In fact, I remembered calling in and winning a pair of concert tickets from him. His voice accompanied me throughout my afternoon shifts, and never did I imagine I would once again meet with that familiarity. And how does he always manage to get good hair days? I have never once seen him with a less then impeccable do.

Their matrimonial ceremony was held at the beautiful Armenian Church at Hill Street, followed by a night of fun, casual dining in Brazil Churrasco on Sixth Avenue. Their formal banquet in the evening of the next day was within the sprawling greens of Singapore Island Country Club.  Not only do they have elegant tastes, they definitely know how to throw a good party too.

Here’s to many years of marital bliss, congratulations Tim and Sabrina!

We’ll be uploading more pictures from their wedding on our Facebook page soon, do keep a look out.

Put a ring on it!

You may not wear your wedding gown again, but the wedding band will continue to adorn your ring finger. Well, for most couples that is. Some may choose to keep their 5-figure masterpieces in the safety of a deposit box. And why stop at 5 figures? There are others priced at 6-figures too, but there aren’t many Jennifer Lopez-es in the world with a pink diamond ring.

We have come across many gorgeous pieces, and a ring shot is quintessential if we see a ring pillow. Here are a couple of unique ones:

 

Kai proposed to Helen in Paris, and they engraved the Eiffel tower on their wedding bands. Superb!

Another engraved feature, Francesco and Liu Yen’s chinese poetry.

执子之手,与子偕老

“I will hold your hand, all the way into our old age.”

francesco liu yen max

 

Tris & Jac opted for rather unique rings, one we don’t see much of. Tris’ ring with the black detail is a Quatre Black Edition Wedding Band from Boucheron. The black is created from PVD coating the gold. PVD coating is common in the watch industry for precious metals, and here we see it enhancing the design on an otherwise plain wedding band. It is an excellent option for men who prefer a little more on their bands.

Here are some of our other favourite wedding bands and ring pillows. I hope it will provide some inspiration for those deciding on their bands.

Tanjong Pagar Road in Singapore has been the street to go to for wedding shopping, and it is time we joined in the fun. Again. Yes, again.

Back in 2005, our gallery was in 55 Tras Street, a street that ran parallel to Tanjong Pagar Road. In 2007 our lease ended. Our then landlord doubled the rent and we decided to move to 20 Emerald Hill (the unit where Silhouette the Atelier is currently occupying, they took over right after our tenure). We had to let go of the Emerald Hill gallery for the same reason, doubling rentals. Thereafter, we moved back to our Saunders Road stronghold, combining our studio with our gallery. In 2011, Chris found the perfect spot to build Singapore’s largest indoor wedding photography studio, and we are back to holding two locations. The rental should remain stable in our Midview City units; we are rather tired of being at the mercy of landlords.

This year, we have finalised negotiations for the lease of 79B Tanjong Pagar Road, and our 2nd gallery is complete. This addition will be a convenient location for couples wanting to browse the stretch and visit our partner boutiques (Le Grand & Z Wedding). Our Saunders Road gallery can then cater to couples who are planning to do their shopping in the Orchard area. We hope this will make things easier for you. Well, at least for this year or two when the rent amount has been agreed upon.

Do join us for our Tanjong Pagar Gallery Open House on -

Saturday/Sunday, 8th & 9th March 2014

Saturday /Sunday, 15th & 16th March 2014

Workshop Timings: 1pm / 3pm / 5pm

Address: 79B Tanjong Pagar Road, S088500 (Above Le Grand)

Chris himself will be conducting a workshop on photography and will be touching on all things wedding. The partner boutique involved in this open house will be the ever high fashion Le Grand, and you can ask their designers on all things bridal couture. As for myself, I’ll run through any queries you would have pertaining to planning a wedding: photographers, video, locations, recommendations, etc. You can buy me coffee for the exchange of information. Or you can buy our packages, that would make us very happy and I’ll buy you coffee instead.

Do RVSP your attendance for the workshop through our email: enquiries (at) chrisling.com, together with your name, contact number, and preferred timing.

See you there!

wedding flowers hand bouquet 16

Rumour has it that the prices of roses went up by 60% for this year’s Valentine’s. We are referring to Valentine’s day roses, which means it is 60% on top of the double from regular priced roses bought on February 14th. If your other half has bought you flowers, better give them a gargantuan hug worth 260% as compared to other days.

Still, flowers are a quintessential part for weddings, and today would be a good time to share the beautiful bouquets we have captured. Pricing on gorgeous floras could range between nothing at all from all inclusive bridal packages, to easily a five digit sum that adorns the entire venue. Hand bouquets alone would cost between $200 to $500, and I know of a florist who sold one of his creations at $1200.

If you have the creative streak, you could do what Valerie did and create your own hand bouquet. QED if you have magic fingers, but definitely not QED with my own hands.

She has since received requests to create wedding details for other people, and you can follow her other creations on her Instagram account: @Primandpastel

Here are some other of our favourite bouquets we captured during the past year, and I hope you’ll find these inspiring for your own flower power. Happy Valentine’s!

It was an amazing show for those who had attended the our boutique partner’s launch of their Spring/Summer 2014 collection. We had more celebrities that attended the show this year, and many were anticipating Fann Wong’s RSVPed attendance. Unfortunately, she had to cancel her plans because she fell sick that day. Maybe next time we’ll catch her at a better time.

Here is the link to the Facebook album on snippets of what went on during the show.

For the gowns, it was a gorgeous collection of designs that were truly bold and unique, yet feminine and elegant. Take a look at a few of our  picks:

“The Le Grand Spring/Summer 2014 is inspired by the mythical city of Atlantis. There is a mystique that shroud this city as it sits in its on the ocean floor. Wrapped in a blue abyss, imagine a spring burst of colours as schools of vibrant ocean life swim within its ruins. Imagine also mythical mermaids as they glide within the city walls. These imageries materialised itself in Le Grand’s Atlantis collection, a mix of mermaid silhouettes as light reflect off their scales, and a vision of strength as these creatures remained guardians of Atlantis. This is an artistic rendition of a spring/summer collection, an ethereal femme fatale.”

“The Z Wedding Spring/Summer 2014 is themed on a garden in full bloom. The strength of a woman is also her femininity. Floral details were spared no expense as this season the collection dresses the bride in her very own Eden. The stature of a grand ball gown is romanticized by the softness of delicate blooms, creating the perfect fairy tale as spring approaches.”

The studio is buzzing again with some settings being updated. We’re quite excited to shoot with the new arrivals, but of course our popular “in-demand” environments will be retained.

In the course of our years, we were privileged to have couples from all over Asia who flew down to our Singapore gallery for their pre-wedding shoot. Most had found us through the internet, and for that we never fail to be appreciative of the fact that they placed so much trust in us based on our portfolios. We cannot deny that forum discussions did help as well, our team had put in immense effort to maintain a good track record of service and professionalism. If we don’t put in our 100% for every job, the forums can be an abysmal pit hole of word slinging maliciousness. Truly dangerous grounds where one sided stories manifest itself.

Yet, the exposure and positivity that can be derived from the world wide web would far outweigh risks of on-line slander. It has brought us closer to you! With one image of our lovely bride Marly (and her bear), our Facebook page took a giant leap to over 100,000 likes as of today. From the demographic reports, Jakarta “likes” us the most. Thank you Indonesian fans!
