Weddings Over The Weekend

It's June already!!! 2010 still feel new to me! What happened to all those months?! Maybe 'cos we've been keeping ourselves busy with studio shoots, outdoor portraits, workshops and weddings! Ah! Weddings! End of May has been packed with weddings. I always love weddings, especially when we know the couple and the families so well.

This is the wedding of Hany & Iman - marriage solemnised on May 27th. We had covered Hany's sister's (Nina & Azmir) wedding about 3 years ago (time sure flies). They're like family friends - well, they're Hokkien and speak pure Penang hokkien, which is exactly my dialect :)). Congrats to Hany & Iman on their marriage and we wish them lots of love in this next chapter of their lives.

Iman - looking cool after the Nikah!

The moment they both have been waiting for...May 28th was their Akad Nikah (solemnisation) held in picturesque Cyberview Lodge Resort. Ludo's family from France (an entourage of about 30+ !) had flown specially in to witness this ceremony and share the couple's joy. (I forgot to ask if Ludo flew the plane himself, cos he's a pilot with Air France! Maybe I will later, if I remember!) Even as I'm tapping away on my keyboard, the families are now basking in the warm (hot) sun in Pulau Perhentian - yes, all 30+ of them are there now on holiday! Have fun, y'all!

Heartiest congratulations to you both, as you start your new lives together in France!
"Felicitations pour votre mariage, nous vous souhaitons a tout les deux tout le bonheur du monde!"
