Pre Wedding Photography Macau – Part 3

This post, as promised, is the outcome of the professional photos taken at Macau in 2014. This is also linked to my Pre Wedding Photography Macau Experience which I have elaborated on my photography experience with one of Singapore’s leading bridal stores – Thomson Wedding Collections (TWC). Photography by: Dawn Koh from TWC.   Makeup for bride and groom by: Joyce from TWC  My curly wavy hairdo without the pinups for the morning shoot. 1. Ruins of St Paul  This church, dedicated to Saint Paul the Apostle was built in the 17th century but was destroyed by a huge fire in 1835 and what remains till today is the facade of the church. It is one of Macau’s best known landmarks and has been officially listed as part of the Historic Centre of Macau, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 2. Travessa da Paixao We walked down the steps below Ruins of St. Paul to the back alleys of Ruins of St Paul about 50 meters and found this interesting narrow street. The both sides feature European style building, brightly painted in traditional Portuguese colours. Upon exiting ‘Travessa da Paixao’, we chanced upon the Macau Post Box.   3. St. Dominic’s Church The St. Dominic’s Church is a late 16th century Baroque-style church and serves within the Cathedral Parish of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Macau. This is also one of the 29 sites that form the Historic Centre of Macau, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 4. Senado Square (Largo do Senado) Senado Square has been Macau’s urban centre for centuries & still a popular venue for celebrations. It is paved with a wave-patterned mosaic colored stones created by the Portuguese. It was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2005 and forms part of the Historic Centre of Macau.  This photo was taken at the traffic lighting crossing at the entrance of Senado Square.

Pre Wedding Photography Macau Experience (Part 2)

Following my blogpost on Pre-Wedding Photography Thomson Wedding Collections (Part 1), I will now blog about the whole travel photography experience with Thomson Wedding Collections (TWC) in this post. So just 2 days before we flew to Macau, we visited Fiona at the TWC Tanjong Pagar branch to collect: 4 Gowns, 3 Suits, 1 Can-can, Crystal Flower Bouquet, Hair Accessories, Necklaces and Earrings, Veil. All these are provided by TWV and are required to be brought by us to Macau. Although TWC had our measurements from earlier fittings, Fiona got us to change into all the clothes again and her staff helped with the last minute alterations. They were quick in making the amendments, say 10-15 minutes. The staff then rolled up and folded the gowns into our baggage and we were all set to go! Note:      1. Please bring a BIG size luggage! We brought a medium sized luggage and had to repack because all the wedding stuff just can’t get into the medium sized luggage… Zzz! 2. The gowns/suits etc. will roughly weigh slightly <20kg. Therefore, select your baggage weight wisely when buying your air tickets I previously got TWC to prepare a Crystal Flower Bouquet for me (See Blog: The Pre-Wedding Preparation) but it didn’t turn out to be what I expected. Anyway, I didn’t want to be a bride-zilla so I made do with what was done.  This was put into my hand carry baggage as I was required to return it in good shape to TWC after the wedding shot. — M . A . C . A . U .      P. H . O . T . O . G . R . A .P . H. Y —  We checked in at Hotel Okura Macau (Blogpost: The Perfect Getaway in Macau at Hotel Okura Macau) for 2 days and I got myself tanned. =__=    A little wrong planning on my end but whatever… For the actual photography, we checked into Royal Hotel Macau as we didn’t want to spend too much on the room since we would be most of the time outdoors. This hotel is situated on a steep slope and is near to attractions like Casino Lisboa, which is one of the oldest casinos in Asia, and is also a good base to explore heritage such as Ruins of St Paul’s – a Christian church dating from 1607. The night before the actual wedding shoot, Dawn and Joyce came by our...

Pre-Wedding Makeup & Photography – Buddy Kang & XJ

I met up with my long time JC friend – Buddy Kang for dinner after a day’s work at Jurong Point for some simple flair of Hong Kong food. He had finished taking his pre-wedding photos and showed me his stack (IT”S REALLY ONE THICK STACK) of like 500 over photos that he has taken in a day in Singapore. But of cos, there was a top-up fee of $1,000 to his wedding package for that. The quality of takes for indoor and outdoor photography was good I must say! Then anyway, he and his fiancee wanted to take some casual wedding shoots and they are agreeable to be my makeup guinea pigs!!! Haha!!! ^___^ We went shopping at Jurong Point for false eyelashes, mascara, pins, hairsprays etc for the makeover. And here’s the  result of the makeover and photography!
