TIMELESS GRAN­DEUR

HerWorld Brides LUXE (Singapore) - - Contents - Luxe PORTRAITS

Sim­ple and classy, these gor­geously el­e­gant shots will stand the test of time.

Ch­eryl Tan and John Se­bas­tian Fran­cisco planned their wedding portraits with panache and class in equal mea­sure, re­sult­ing in gor­geously el­e­gant shots that will stand the test of time.

Ch­eryl loves soft, ro­man­tic shots that are also el­e­gant and timeless, so that was the main feel­ing we went for in our shoot. In­stead of go­ing with one spe­cific theme, we chose a few styles that we both liked.

One of them was a sim­ple but ro­man­tic Korean-in­spired set­ting with an el­e­gant arm­chair against a lush flo­ral back­drop. We both fell in love with the K-wave af­ter watch­ing Ful­lHouse – the first drama we watched to­gether as a cou­ple. We had an­other set-up in­spired by Peaky Blin­ders – a favourite show of mine. It was luxe, grand and moody. All these shots were taken in the stu­dio pro­vided by our bri­dal bou­tique.

For our out­door shoot, Ch­eryl had al­ways dreamed of the grand and im­pos­ing all-white in­te­rior and col­umns of Vic­to­ria The­atre & Con­cert Hall. The venue proved to be per­fect for what we had in mind. We also made a stop at Fort Can­ning Park for some shots with nat­u­ral green­ery.

Pro­vid­ing ex­am­ples and clear in­struc­tions to our pho­tog­ra­pher, Dawn Koh from Thom­son Wedding Col­lec­tion, truly helped us re­alise our vi­sion. As tir­ing as it was, she did a great job in mak­ing our shoots fun and en­joy­able.

Learn­ing some ba­sic poses and smiles would help a lot if you don’t feel nat­u­rally com­fort­able in front of the cam­era. We ex­pect pho­tog­ra­phers to work their magic, but we can put in a lit­tle ef­fort too!

on our is­land for wedding portraits. You

may be sur­prised.”
