Yes, I got really teary when mum and dad helped me with my veil. So much for not crying at my own wedding!
I see there’s always time for a wefie…
Just some of the awesome people around me. Shoutout and big thanks to my (limelight-hating) older brother who transported so many bulky items, and was always around for rehearsals, even when he wasn’t the most excited to be part of the bridal party (as he would have to be involved in the march-ins, heh). Even here he chose to lurk in the background of the picture!
He and my most awesome sis-in-law just showed up at 11pm the night before the wedding “in case we needed help with anything” and on the day, he apparently kept asking my mum if there was anything else to be done – basically, he helped out in his own quiet, un-showy way. Although we fought as kids and even more so as teenagers; and although to ‘kaypoh’ (meaning: busybody) people (who don’t know any better but think they do) we seem to not get on and think we are very brash and unloving towards each other, I think both of us know that’s how we show our love, and that we will be there in a heartbeat for each other in times of need.
Okay that’s like the most expressive vocalization of sibling love in perhaps 30 years. STAHP.
I love this shot of my beautiful bridesmaids and flower girls (unfortunately sans the maid-of-honour and the birde!). Everyone looks so pretty and so radiant – and don’t you love the blooms Liz and I hastily threw together the night before the wedding? Although they didn’t all know one another before this, each of these girls have been there for me through difficult times, and like an elephant, I never forget.
In this post are snaps by my friend, Jem, who was an unofficial photographer at our wedding. Jem and I go way back, back in SMU days where we would shoot all sorts of school campaigns together; he the freelance and budding photographer; me the ‘anyhow’ model who took on commercial modelling jobs that paid for textbooks (so expensive!), Statistics tuition lessons (embarrassing but very essential) and wakeboarding sessions (which was a luxury!). Later on, Jem also gamely shot my lookbook campaigns when I was running my online boutique, and true to his promise, shot these lovely moments on T and my special day. Thank you for bothering to arrive early and getting all these precious moments that my official photographer may have missed!
More photos to come!
