My first wedding assignment part 1

After the pre wedding shots, the big day has arrived ! I'll be devoting my next few blog posts to cover Cheng Long and Sue Ann's wedding.

Woke up at 600 am on 27th november and made sure I had the full list of equipment in my bag:

1 x e-3 body
1 x 35-100 f2
1 x leica 14-50
1 x 7-14 f4
1 x FL-50 + 2 set AAA
2 x BLM-1

I was picked up promptly at 630am and 'chauffeured' by the groom to the hairstylist / bridal shop in Boxhill.

Not a bad place to get a make-over. Back home, the shop staff would usually come to your place and make sure the job's done for you.

Reached LSCC @ 930am, approx 1 hour before the wedding started. The deco team employed a no-fuss, simple theme for the church hall and rearranged the pews.

The marriage certificates

Groom's parents welcoming guests.

And here are the bride's parents

Relatives started streaming in slowly. They even had their own 'camera-person' :)

simple deco on the edges of the pews

i just love the shallow DOF of the 35-100. i just needed to use iso 400 in conjunction with bounce flash, which wasn't bad at all !

parents would normally be seated right up front. CL's mom was an english teacher. i should get to know her more next time if we meet again.

the bride finally arrives in the Ford coupe bridal car

her smile was simply breathtaking - perfect!

if you've ever held a bouquet, its not as light as it looks! all the roses are reinforced with steel wires to form the bunch.

melvin suggested a 'family photo' before the ceremony. Thanks!

i wonder what CL must be thinking at this point in time

SA makes her grand entrance down the aisle alongside her dad.

More to come later. Going for a trip down Great Ocean Road tomorrow.
