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!

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.

I received a call the other day asking if we can cover Robert and Molly’s wedding anniversary celebration. But of course! I replied. Max would be delighted to. When I first saw Robert and Molly to finalise the details, they had also required a photo montage of their years together, starting from vintage photos of their wedding portraits right down to their grandson’s entry to the army. so I asked if I should title it “Robert and Molly’s 25th Wedding Anniversary”. That was when Robert told me it wasn’t 25, it was 50. 50 years! They really do not look their age. It was our privilege to cover Robert and Molly’s celebration, the first gold anniversary event in our 20 years of business.

 

Robert and Molly, congratulations on your inspirational 50 years of love.

Xiuling and Chek Chai had a pastel themed carnival wedding the past Sunday at the Fullerton, and I had the privilege of attending their dinner. It was truly a wedding to remember, with an abundance of memorabilia for myself to keep.

 

The fun started during the cocktail reception, and like a primary school girl, I squealed in delight at the amount of activities I could engage ourselves in. There was a candy floss machine and a popcorn stand! Candy floss will always me of the days when I was only as tall as the machine, and I had to tip toe to collect the candy floss from the candy floss maker. The sweets did not stop there, laid out on tables were pastel candies and biscuits that you can “tapao” (pack home) in their paper bags provided. Down to the finer details, each bag was printed with their silhouettes and logo.

 

Their canvas displays were unconventional, going with beautiful typographical designs of when they met and how it all started. Amidst these enlargements, there was also a blank canvas with a figure drawing of the couple at the bottom. The idea was for guests to finger print the top half with a multitude of colours, these would create the balloons above their heads. Guests can release their own creativity and select from a number of pastel coloured inks to help paint on the balloons with their biographical signature. Brilliant!

 

For guest books, Xiuling personally created scrapbooks of pastel blues and pinks. She is definitely one who never neglects details, her craft work was superb! Many coloured markers and inks were provided, and as always guests were encouraged to go crazy with their designs.

Xiuling and Chek Chai also had an instant print photo booth, and true to their pastel themed wedding, the backdrop was pin stripes of blue and white. There were a multitude of props, from goofy glasses to pirate hats, I chose the hearts:

 

And just how detailed were they? Even the door gifts were individually wrapped and signed off.

 

This was truly an amazing wedding. To Xiuling and Chek Chai, thank you so much for letting me partake in the joy of your wedding! The fun did not end at the cocktail reception, and my belly was  pampered like a queen’s banquet. Last but not least, kudos to the sand animation of your history together, another brilliant idea!

All in all, I remain very impressed that Xiuling executed these ideas, including implementing the decor, without the help of a planner. I still wonder how she managed to juggle her work, and at the same time plan out such a wonderful night for the guests to enjoy.

We had the privilege to cover Annie Man‘s wedding, which happened to be the first celebrity wedding of the year (Hong Kong). It was held at the Four Season’s yesterday, 2nd March, and Jason and Annie convinced Chris himself to personally step in to cover their actual day. Along with Chief Wedding Day photographer Max Yeo, and the creative from our video team, Alvin (Bernard was also supposed to attend, but he had a Singapore wedding to cover), all the big guns were flown in from Singapore for their event. Everyone working with Jason and Annie felt that it was a breeze, and their personalities simply shone through the lenses.

Jason Lee is a businessman outside the film industry, and having dated Annie for 3 years, the dashing groom popped the question last year. What’s more, they have discovered they are already expecting a little one along the way!

The whole process had the paparazzi following Jason and Annie to their bridal fitting and photoshoots, something rather unheard of in Singapore. Therefore, we found it quite amusing to see our picture frames (which we provided to our boutique partner as part of our marketing exposure) on the internet.

We would like to thank Jason and Annie for engaging us to cover the milestones in their lives, and also to give our heartiest congratulations on their double happiness.

Our dearest Ernest Goh is launching another book.

The Fish Book.

 

Seriously. The Fish Book.

And I really like the Fish Book. In fact, like would probably be an understatement. Its whimsical nature doesn’t belie the excellent photography, and that could be why I find it so intriguing. Well, it could also simply be the fact that those fish faces made me happy!

 

The Fish Book will be launched on the 17th of November at Chan Hampe Galleries (27 Kreta Ayer Road), and the book exhibited until 24th November. Do delight yourself and grab a copy at $27.80.

On another note, here is a glimpse of Raymond and Miin’s wedding covered by Ernest last month.

 

I’ll be posting up more images onto a facebook album, but there would not be much of the couple themselves as they have requested for a certain amount of privacy.

[Update]: Images posted, do find them here.

The National Library board is holding Singapore’s first Instagram exhibition at the National Library Building in Victoria Street. They have filtered down from thousands of entries to a collection of 150 works from various local photographers. Alongside the godfather of Singapore blogging, Mr Brown’s, work, our chief photographer, Tennant Lim, was also featured.

Instagram doesn’t have a function to share the images crafted through the application, so I took a screen shot from my iPhone instead.

 

It does not really do his images justice, but you here are a few ways to see his pictures for yourself. Let’s play “Find Tennant”!

Find Tennant’s work at –

1. Our wedding day website: www.thegallery.com.sg
