Couple Photoshoot: Bel+Juan

Belinda emailed me in early January to arrange for a couple photosession with her hubby, Juan in their lovely home.  It was a “quickie”:)We started brainstorming for ideas and talking about styles, props and vintage all via email and it was then all executed in the following weekend. It was a satisfactory!

Belinda is an amazing craftswoman!! I fell in love with her crafts instantly which then lead to some of my money hoping back into her account. Basically, whatever you see in the photos are made by her. If you are interested in buying some crafts from here too, hope over to Phings! I got a feeling I’m gonna be her long term customer in the end:)

Joel+Linda : A DIY Rustic & Vintage Wedding

I adore every single little things in a wedding.  From the save the date card to the invitation card to every little decorations according to the theme. I have a thing for lanterns, they are so simple yet able to make the atmosphere feels like a magical place.

 

I promise you, this is a freaking cool & unique wedding so far I’ve ever shot….because, everything was mostly DIY and the best part of all is, two different culture combines! Bride is from Miri, Sarawak; a petite Iban girl (*high 5 for that*), Groom is from Perth; therefore you will see Iban culture & designs in some of the decorations.

 

Now, don’t even get me started on the reception location! It is simply amazing and I fell in love with the place instantly. One, because it is in a SHED!! it whispers “rustic” & “vintage” which is what I love… Two, the bride & groom have an awesome outdoor dance floor…. Three, IT HAS HAY-BALE!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I have a thing for hay-bales too:)Four, lanterns of courseeeeee, lots of them which are in orange & white color. Five, VINTAGE/CLASSIC CARS!!!!!!!!!! I told you this wedding is awesome!

 

Once again, a big thank you to Christine Lim for giving me the opportunity to shoot this wedding with her. Hop over to her site to see her ways of painting the story of Linda & Joel! Also, check out Linda’s blog at Juneteneleven to see how Linda & Joel plan this rad DIY rustic & vintage wedding. Simply, marvelous!

The “Save the Date”, “Invitation Card” & “Will You Be My Maid Of Honor” cards are all DIY!!!!!
See the hornbill bird on the card? It is the national symbol of Sarawak. The design on the top side of the card is a mixture of Sarawak & Western design.
