The Wedding Ceremony

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 After we had taken our wedding portraits, we were off to the church. Saying “Hi” to friends and family before the customary tea ceremony was surreal. Even after the tea ceremony, we spent most of the time inside the waiting room bribing the kids to walk down the aisle without a fuss. Waiting outside the doors was the most nerve wreaking moment I’ve ever felt. It was that moment where you know your life was about to be changed forever. Super grateful to have my dad walk me down the aisle and my best friend, Clem reassuring me that all would be fine. Photography beautifully captured by the really talented Nathan Wu 

Our Wedding Portraits

The soft rays of the morning along an old railway corridor set the mood for the beautiful portrait session that Nathan had planned for us before the ceremony. Film always brings out the colours and the dreamy, romantic feel that I love. With Nathan, he really knows what he is doing and I am absolutely grateful for him.

Turning Twenty-Nine

My favourite photo of me with my beloved Godson ❤️ I turned Twenty-Nine! Wow, how time has just flown past in an instant. It seems like yesterday when I was celebrating my Twenty-First birthday at home with my friends & family. It’s really hard to imagine that I am in my last year of my twenties. As I hit my late twenties, I started to prefer an intimate birthday setting in comparison to the bashes that I used to have. Just like the last 2 years, we headed out of the country for a holiday and I must say that I am loving this new tradition.  This year’s celebration was a relatively quiet one filled with loads of food and just taking a slow stroll down the streets of Ubud. I am super grateful for the cake that the staff from the hotel gave me after singing the birthday song. I used to be one who would make lists to accomplish for the length of my birthday year and has since ceased doing so. It …

Floristry Monday | Fan Shaped Arrangement

The Fan Shaped Design takes its name for the way the fan is being designed. I love how it is one sided and really great for walls spaces where the flowers goes up against the wall. While I love how Gerberas are great all-year alternatives to Sunflowers, their lifespan is really short in Singapore. They do not fare well in the humidity and heat, so I really start to avoid them if possible. If you’re interested in learning how to make this arrangement, this is a great video that I found on Youtube that showcases the technique needed.

The Wedding Details

It’s the little things that makes a huge difference when it all comes together. After a year of accumulating the little details that would make my wedding decoration gel together, I was amazed at how well my mind’s eye worked and I wouldn’t deny that I had doubts about my own abilities. As part of the tradition to serve tea to our elders, we sought to seek a cheaper solution to buying an entire traditional chinese teapot set that would have otherwise made a dent in our pockets. With that being said, I really wished my Grumpy was around for me to serve him tea. Without a doubt, he would have made me use the same tea set that my mother used, alas, it was not to be and that particular tea set couldn’t be found for my wedding day. I am really in love with our canvas print that came out beautifully. Can’t wait for our new place to arrive so that this beauty can head up onto a wall for all to admire. …

Floristry Monday | Horizontal Design

The Horizontal Design is really similar to the Round Design with the exception of two points on the foam. I’ve observed that roses tends to last longer Eustomas, which I dislike due to it’s smell. My experience with the instructor is getting a little better, perhaps due to it being a day session instead of a night one. If you are interested, here is a youtube clip that I found while looking for a visual revision.
