When I met Sim the first time back in May when we talked about her wedding plans. She did tell me it’s going to be a very long day, but what she didn’t tell me was the fun crowd I’d be working with on her big day! The above picture says it all – the groom Michael, the entire bridal party, and all her friends are such a blast to work with and the entire day just went by so quickly.
We got up early that day and began at Sim’s home, and I must say it’s just awesome to start the day working with the very talented, newly wedded Katie Bee and her husband Shaun. And then the day really began when Michael along with his bridal party, friends, and relatives arrive at the house with the traditional red trays of gifts, followed by door games, and tea ceremony.
yep… I’m sure these games of torment would give these two nightmares. =)
Then the boys are supposed to bribe their way through the doors to reach the bride, and I don’t think the bridesmaids were too happy about what’s in the red envelopes. :)
here’s one group shot of the bridal party as we kick off this eventful day
and here’s one picture that means something special to me… just when we were about the leave the bride’s home to the groom’s I found my jacket along with my car keys were missing. We scrambled for 5 minutes and couldn’t find them… I quickly hitched a ride with Melvin my assistant that day and hopped off the car and had no time to prepare, but I was pretty lucky to find that beautiful light brushing across when they lit up incense.
yep… that’s a happy bridal party =)
