I know, I know! It has been quite a while since I blogged, a faraway friend thought this space was either dead or that I haven’t been working on any material. Truth is that there have been a couple of exciting ongoing projects which probably might not be wise to speak about at this moment, but believe me when I say that I have been itching to share them!

 

On another alternate reality, I was feeling a tad nostalgic. Another friend brought me back to a flickr entry I did two years ago where I shared little bites that I jotted down one afternoon while wandering Books Kinokuniya alone, which I thought would be nice to share here, and hope it tides you over.

Make it a point never to rush through with life. Do not find yourself looking back at the year passed not remembering anything significant you did.

 

Always own your books, never borrow. It would give strong insight to the person you are and the passions that drive you to your kids in due time.

 

Listen to everything everyone has to say, but never follow any of it. It is always important to grow up and form your own opinions.

 

There has to be one thing that you believe in strongly, almost vehemently, at any given point of your life. If you can be sure of nothing, at least be sure of your salvation.

 

You may be a dog person, or a cat person. But always remember that it is your responsibility to show love to all of God’s living creatures.

AC+DC :: A Red Hearts and Glittery Engagement

In case you were curious, no, they aren’t fans of the band. Adelene and Daryl came up with ACDC through the combination of their initials.

 

Their shoot was a joy to conceptualise, what with Adelene’s love for all things quaint, which we were determined to have shine through. We had fun from the get go, from setting the theme, to finding the locations, making and sourcing for props and of course, the shoot itself. Such that no one minded one bit when the day was over and we were all covered with sand and glitter after the beach location. Coincidentally, the beach was symbolic for them; it was where they got together, and where he proposed.

 

I’ll have to say though, the greatest satisfaction for me was when I went through the first edit with them and Adelene says, “Daryl looks so handsome.”

 

That brings a smile to my face.

JENISE & KT :: A Cathedral Wedding

PinExt JENISE & KT :: A Cathedral Wedding weddings looking back

Today, I go back in time once again to showcase one of the earliest weddings I shot. Sometimes it’s good to look back at older work, to see how much you’ve learnt, or to see if you’re detracted too far from your origins.

 

Jenise and KT are a couple who proves that it is never too late in life to find love, or have love find you (whichever way you please). It was a beautiful affair which took place at St Andrew’s Cathedral and Swisshotel Singapore, two very much coveted venues for local brides. Jenise’s wedding co-ordinator tied every detail together beautifully, bringing in the theme of purple tastefully throughout both the ceremony and dinner, and even subtly into the bridesmaids’ dresses.

 

It is technically near impossible to have an elegant yet classy wedding with such a large guest list (and believe me they have amassed quite a number of friends over the years), but the beautiful thing is that they managed to pull it off! It was a unique experience rich with the love of family and friends from all around the world, who peppered the celebration and speeches with tears, laughter and, most importantly, so much joy.
