IN THE PINK OF LOVE

HerWorld Brides LUXE (Singapore) - - Portraits - TEXT STEVE THIO

Jean­nie wanted sim­ple and beau­ti­ful pictures to re­flect her re­la­tion­ship with Chen Thai, and both their per­son­al­i­ties. Wed­ding plan­ners The Wed­ding En­tourage helped make her dream por­traits a re­al­ity by creat­ing a luxe set­ting filled with pretty props and hun­dreds of fresh blooms!

The pre-wed­ding shoot for Jean­nie and Chen Thai was more than just an item to tick off their to-do list. They re­ally wanted an al­bum of pictures that would en­cap­su­late who they are as a cou­ple and show­case their pref­er­ences. “We wanted the shoot to show some el­e­ments of who we are and what we like,” said Jean­nie.

This well-trav­elled Malaysian cou­ple chose to do their shoot in Sin­ga­pore as they “ab­so­lutely adore Sin­ga­pore. Apart from liv­ing in Kuala Lumpur and Melbourne, we spend most of our time in Sin­ga­pore too, where it feels like home away from home”. To get their pro­ject off the ground, the cou­ple roped in top lo­cal wed­ding plan­ners The Wed­ding En­tourage to help them trans­late all their re­quire­ments into a beau­ti­ful and co­he­sive shoot.

Af­ter dis­cus­sions with the cou­ple, Caro­line Yakop-Lim, prin­ci­pal plan­ner of The Wed­ding En­tourage, knew that they needed more than just pretty pictures: “They wanted some­thing glam­orous, ro­man­tic and classy – pictures that would show their per­son­al­ity through the dif­fer­ent de­tails in the shoot, like Jean­nie’s love for fries, dough­nuts, sweet desserts, and f low­ers. As well as their mu­tual love of Coke!”

The en­tire pro­ject took her team close to six months to re­alise – from con­cep­tu­al­is­ing the dif­fer­ent scenes and props for the shoot, to sourc­ing the per­fect bri­dal wardrobe and find­ing the right venue. Caro­line also had to re­cruit the best and most suitable creative tal­ents for the pro­ject – from the pho­tog­ra­pher to the hair­styl­ist and makeup artist. The end re­sult was a gor­geous set­ting filled with lush f lo­rals. There was also a pretty sofa draped with soft pink vel­vet, and a full dessert ta­ble set­ting fea­tur­ing the cou­ples’ favourite food.

The en­tire shoot took around six hours, and at the end of it, Jean­nie said: “It was the per­fect set-up with a dream crew. Ev­ery­one and ev­ery­thing was amaz­ing and in­cred­i­bly fun. It was filled with so many funny mo­ments and pos­i­tive vibes. We had the best team I could ever have asked for!”

“The back­drop was cre­ated just for this shoot to match their cus­tomised ori­en­tal out­fits.

The cou­ple wanted to pay trib­ute to their

Chi­nese roots with this scene.”
