After shooting the wedding of Tom and Sui-Lee at Alkaff Mansion in July, we were back again at this beautiful venue for a second time two months later! And this time, it was to photograph the lovely wedding of Jack and Lei.
Both Jack and Lei love visiting art exhibitions, and it was during one such occasion (the Art Biennale), they were left in awe of a particular art installation of a book of philosophy floating in an aquarium. This amazing work of Bachelor – The Dual Body by artist Ki-Bong Rhee was so memorable to them that they still talk about it today. We drew inspiration from this and attempted to create a memorable ring shot for them. It took us some time conceptualizing, searching for the right tools, and finally executing it. The photo of the art installation vs our carefully-created ring shot. 🙂
Lei is our first bride who chose not to wear a white wedding gown. Instead, as she is Burmese, she chose to don a tailor-made pink Burmese dress which was really unique and pretty. Jack, who is a Singaporean, came dressed in a matching outfit as well. It’s always great to see cultures being embraced, and weddings are the perfect occasion to celebrate different cultures in a big way.
I really love Lei’s second royal blue gown (designed by Amanda Lee Weddings) as well, as it is quite different from the big wedding/evening gowns that brides usually wear during weddings. It has some elements of the chinese culture, accentuated in the fuchsia pink details. The contrast is beautiful, especially the interesting details at the back.
Just as it was for the wedding of Tom and Sui-Lee, Jack and Lei also hired A Little Dream to serenade the guests. This time, it was Ywenna who was both the emcee and the singer.
It’s not often that couples thank the vendors in their thank-you speech. When Lei specifically mentioned to her guests to get acquainted with Awesome Memories Photography, it really touched our hearts to know how much she valued our services.
Once again, it was great working with Vocare, who was our videographer for our own wedding three years ago. It’s awesome to see how they have grown over the years! Other vendors include: Seraphina’s (a bakery by former VJ May Wan) and The Olive 3 (floral decorations).
